'Can't set an expiration date in the past' error for tomorrow?

Hey

Just created a thread. I tried to set an expiration date for tomorrow (08/31/2021) and it wouldn't let me create the topic without deleting the expiry date because it kept telling me it was in the past?

Is something up with the server date?

Haven’t tried it …
But perhaps it’s set in CDN vs USA ? (CDN = DD/MM/YYYY)
So either 31-08-2021

Or metric … largest to smallest / year to day … 2021-08-31

Worth a try

It tells you it's MM/DD/YYYY and when you select the date from the calendar that's how it gets filled as well. I never had an issue with it before trying to make that topc.

I was just able to edit it into the post but it's also August 31st here now. I tried September 1st and it also accepts it.

So not sure if it was just a glitch or only applies when you're making a new thread or what. Probably have to test making an entirely new thread to see.
