What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Stack overflow asks for a input of YYYY/MM/DD, but it does not take my date, for example 1982/11/21 will get an error message asking for a YYYY/MM/DD input. I do not really care but it does look stupid :D.

where does it ask for this ? – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Dec 24 '12 at 16:37
Check for trailing white-space, it accepts 1982/11/21 for me. – NominSim Dec 24 '12 at 17:09

I had no issues copy/pasting your date in there, are your sure you typed it correctly? This hasn't changed in a very long time, and this is the only report I've come across of it not working. – Nick Craver Dec 25 '12 at 10:52

As stated up above the date format you entered is valid. The only way the site wouldn't accept it if you didn't typed it exactly as you said you did or because you have a white space somewhere (the date does not trim the spaces so if you have one it sees YYYY/MM/DDD which is invalid).

I accept this as an answer since it is working now. Still there was a problem, filled in enough date types in my life to understand how to fill this one in. I did not screw up 10 times in a row, i tried to copy/paste it and fill it in manually multiple times. Today i recorded it for you guys but it seemed to work at once. – Menno Gouw Dec 27 '12 at 9:04
