Looks like something happened recently that forbids event to be placed in the future. While I can step into my time machine and attend an event i'm going to place in the past i'm not sure everybody else can do the same.

ok looked at it again and noticed you can only place an event on the first 12 days of the month anything after gives you this message You do not have a valid Date Placed.

 

Make sure your date format is correct. The fact that the problem occurs after the 12th day makes me think that the day /month/ year format you're using is the problem. It's based on American date format and you may have entered Canadian format. Just a thought.

The calendar on the "Report a new cache" side is delivering the format dd/mm/yyyy and the side is not accepting this.

 

-> This is definitly a bug and should be fixed. Does nobody checks the new features if they are working in European Mode before delivering it?

By "European Mode", do you mean "Almost-everywhere-in-the-world-apart-from-America Mode"?

yes, but I'm not sure about the Date-format in e.g. the UK. But I also found out right now that even the Metric system is not fully supported - On the Hide&seek pages it still askes for the radius in Miles.

 

However, when looking around on the side (I did not take a nearer view on that topic so far), I found out that all dates (e.g. the renewal date or the found dates in your personal list and even the Hidden date on a cache) are in US-style date (which is the most illogical one of all, but this my personal view), but a Event is switched to "Event Date : Monday, 14 June 2010" and as I said before, the page wanted me to enter it as dd/mm/yyyy

 

This is completely illogical and it is a very bad design of the user interface, because it would completely confuse the user. But when looking at the side, I think there is at all no design-masterplan.

 

I think, it should be possible to select your date-format like you select your unit-format (metric or imperial), and that must be independent from the language you choose.

Don't you love the quick fixes? Thanks for the fast reply.

 

PS: I'm quite impressed at how much new & updated stuff you've managed to pack into this release. It sounds like the scrum/agile stuff is working. Not to mention the lackeys; it's obvious they've been working hard.
