Change in display of date of postings

I would like to propose to change the display of dates in the postings, which is currently mm-dd-yy. To avoid ambiguity, I would like to propose dd-Mmm-yyyy. Thank you for your anticipated consideration.

I agree.
Having worked on code and documents that might be seen or used on either side of the Atlantic I agree that dd-Mmm-yyyy is a better format to avoid confusion; the Japanese have the logical format, the most significant figure on the left, that is: yyyy/mm/dd.
