"Custom Date and Time Formats" doesn't state current format
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

On https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/settings/ I can't know what to set, because I'm not told what the default format is. I hope it's "H:i", but I suspect it isn't.

You should know what to set based on what you want to set, not based on what is set already, right?

The sensible workflow is:

IF user observes that the time format doesn't go with you
THEN user goes to preferences and do the changes to their liking -- in case of doubt there is a link to the formatting definition

Anyway, this is a task that belongs entirely upstream.

Not right. When I register, I go check the preferences. Moreover, if I don't know the required format well I may be unsure of the output.
