What's the best way for a user to indicate their preferred way to see numbers and dates.
- Ask the user to enter a country - but that seems like a confusing question to ask someone as they first start using a system. It's also not such a simple question since a person may be working in a foreign country but might want to see numbers and dates the way they're accustomed to in their home country.
- Show a dropdown of number/date format options
- Something else
Anyone have any suggestions on the least confusing way I can get this information for a user when they first sign-up on my system?
By the way, I'm aware of Accept-Language, but I understand that it's not reliable.
