Metric system

The site is using some weird, prehistoric measurement system with fingers, feet, miles, knots, versta, attioparsecs, jiffies, microfortnights, whatevers.

It would be so bleeding edge to upgrade to the metric system. Or at least to have a "caveman" and a "modern human" choice. :-)

    It depends on browser choice whether it shows km or mi. If I choose German language there is always km. To change language is not always working.
    The user should have an option to choose, please...

    It's ridiculous that you decide anyone with an EN browser should be imperial. Please change this to allow users to decide what they need, when they need it.

    Hi grin,
    thank you for the feedback!

    the website should display the metric system for all the browsers except those using english as main language (see the language setting in your browser). Which is the language you are using?

    It can be changed _after_ login, as I see. So basically people who are sophisticated enough to register can change it, and the others want imperial units. :-]
