SharePoint datetime formats

I’ve noticed that new sites don’t populate into the Site Directory – this only occurs when a datetime metadata field is used when creating a new site.
 
The reason for the failure is simple.  
 
To manually pass the date and time to SharePoint this is the required format to pass.
YYYY-MM-DD
 
If a date is entered in any other format, the site doesn’t get added into the Site Directory at all.  This includes the submitted sites list, latest sites or A-Z listings.
