Hi Experts.
I have looked all over for this, with no success.
We're testing Sharepoint Server Enterprise 2010.  Everything works as expected with just one exception. When users navigate to their "My Site", dates are showing up in US format.  Additionally, users will have to manually go into their site settings and change the locale from US to UK to get date and time settings to show up correctly in their document libraries etc.
Is there an easy way to default the "My Site" to show everything in UK Locale?  I've checked the server (2008 R2 SP1 64Bit), and the locales are set correctly.
Thanks
Dave

You will need to add a feature stapler to the site definition:

In that feature receiver you'll need to put code that resembles this:
mySiteWeb.RegionalSettings.LocaleId = (numberforUKlocale);
mySiteWeb.RegionalSettings.Time24 = true;

mySiteWeb.Update();
