STRAVA (dot or comma?)

Hello,

There's something I don't understand: Strava shows data. And this is data from my last training:

Distance: 102.92 km
Max Speed: 67.0 km/h
Avg Speed: 22.7 km/h
Elevation Gain: 9,735 m (moderate hills!)

There are 2 issues I believe. The first one is the elevation gain (evident error - OK, I was riding in the forest & near a storm) which is not of my interest here.
What does interest me is why Strava uses dots and commas. Did I do Everesting+ (9000 and 735m??!!) or did I do 9 meters and 735mm??

What's the reasoning (if any) behind it? Or maybe it's just some kind of (major/minor?) inconsistency on Strava's part?

    A dot is a decimal point.
    ie 102.92 km is nearly 103km.
    We use commas to denominate every three zeroes to make it easier to read without error.
    ie 1,000,000 is 1 million.
    9,735m is simply 9735m.

    If you click on the three dots, at the top on the right, you can correct the elevation.

    Weirdly it’s the opposite in Dutch

    Although we use the dot as a decimal separator in general (in the uk) in an engineering drawing we use a comma. (Since bs8888 is compliant with iso8015 etc).
