    @admin I was looking at this page on the website:

    Mission Logs

    I noticed that the format of the stardates could be a bit ambiguous. For example, 11th of January of a given year and 1st of Novemeber of the same year would have the same stardate (111YY) according to the given format. Can I suggest a DDMMYY format be adopted to minimize this ambiguity? In other words, add 0’s when necessary?

    That has been highlighted in the past. I have decided not to change it as 11th January and 1st November of any given year are highly unlikely to both be a Saturday (in 2016, they are a Monday and Friday respectively). Therefore, as mission logs are made on the Saturday night duty shift, it didn’t seem necessary to change things as the ambiguity would not occur.

    I suppose that makes sense. Thanks!
