We currently only accept dates in ISO 8601 format and print out a warning if the user puts in a date in a different format. We could make this part more user-friendly by guessing the date format of a non-ISO 8601 date and including a link to results using that guessed date.


"Sorry, "3/24/15" is not a valid date. The expected date format is "YYYY-MM-DD". Example: "2015-07-02". Did you mean: 2014-03-24"

Fortunately, Wikipedia has a list of common date formats used in the world.

We don't really need this feature anymore, since we set the HTML input type to "date". The browser takes care of formatting the selected date as "YYYY-MM-DD". This should be good enough. Closing.
