Community posts and setting my display date format (ie, DD-MM-YYYY)

I have just joined the community and it looks great.

There is one small question, how can I set up my profile or settings so that dates displayed in the community are in my locale's format of DD-MM-YYYY and not the 'USA' format of MM-DD-YYYY?

Click on Profile photo.

Manage Settings 

Click on "Edit in Atlassian account"

Local Time

Manage your time zone.

Okay, that made me chuckle!

I followed that and now instead of showing 01-11-2021 it shows Jan 11, 2021, so still kind of USA style (month before day). I would prefer 11 Jan 2021 or 11-01-2021.

As a programmer it has alway made sense to me to have the units in 'size' order. Days are smaller than months which are smaller than years, so either 11-01-2021 (ascending size order, most generally used worldwide) or 2021-01-11 (descending size order, Japanese style) make sense.
