Is there a way for me to choose which way the board displays the timestamp to me? Right now it's day/month/year and I am so used to month/day/year that it confuses me sometimes, especially when it's early in the mornings, lol. If there isn't a way to change it, May I ask why you chose to display it that way?

Yes there is.

Click on Tools in the top menu, on that page it has "date format" where you can specify how the date shows.
As I'm used to UK dates my date format box says dd/mm/yy

Make sure you write it mm/dd/yy and not with actual numbers as then all the dates on the board will change to the same day

Thank you, I never clicked on tools before lol.

I can't tell you how much of a difference that makes, looks much more natural to me now.

Yeah if you're used to it probably a good idea to leave it. I was looking at a thread this morning shortly after waking up and posted a reply, looked at the stamp and was like "how am I posting in April?". it's amazing how the brain gets used to seeing things a certain way over a lifetime and then the slightest changes get overlooked. I am programmed lol.

You have probably done what I said not to do here i.e. you have that date written into your date format box rather than dd/mm/yy or mm/dd/yy

Click and tools and check what is written into the date format box on the page
