Small Suggestion about the VPS definition version formatting
« on: April 08, 2012, 09:53:50 AM »
Hello Everyone!

I've got one small suggestion about VPS definition version formatting, can we make it as time and date in natural languages? So that as user we can know exactly the time the database got updated.

The current formatting looks like an internal version leak.... Don't you guys think so?

Best Regards

Hello,
the VPS version has date format YYMMDD-x, where YY is year, MM is month, DD is day and x is sequence number in day. If you need exact time you can go to UI and in updates page there is shown release time of last VPS version.

Hello,
I think it's not weird order but logical order ;-)

Well, a lot of users are on countries that the "logical" order is day-month-year. Like me ;D

That is common, however the YY(YY)MMDD is a known standard to follow (especially when programming AFAIK):

Certainly for programming and anything that requires any form of ordering as you can't order by day, month, year, and have data in a strict chronological order it has to be year, month, day.
