Forum date format?

Apologies for a probably really silly question, but how do I change the format of dates for forum messages? At present it’s really confusing: for example 21 August 2022 is shown (I think!) as “August 21”, which gets even more confusing for any dates in previous years. I can’t for the life of me find the relevant setting in my profile - what am I missing?

Thanks a lot!!

There is an apostrophe in the short form date if it is a previous year.

It doesn’t seem to be end user configurable, however can be configured in the admin interface based on Show post Year? - feature - Discourse Meta

Ah, right, OK - thanks for the gen. If it’s for admin, then I’ll go with the consensus!

I think a 4 digit year would be more obvious than an apostrophe.
