_Top-Gun_DockRider, I cannot see how this can happen because Zwift has an international user base, with more users coming from Canada, Australia, and European countries than from the U.S. When they send announcements or e-mails to users, they send the same information to everyone. A system which somehow separates users based on their preference to metric or imperial in the game is relatively difficult to set up and maintain. If Zwift cannot create an option for starting a new route without exiting the program and logging in again, despite years and years of begging and despite even recent promise from their CEO that this would be done, how can one expect Zwift to customize e-mails per user preferences?
I can tell from my experience, after 6 months of riding in metric on Zwift, I will reprogram my bike computer to metric without hesitation when outdoor riding season starts, even though I have always used imperial system for biking. If one gets into more in-depth analyses of rides, e.g., with TrainingPeaks, WKO5, GoldenCheetah, or whichever one’s preference is, dealing with imperial units can become a freaking nightmare, as units of energy and work do not mix well with imperial length units. There is no reason to stuck with imperial whatsoever. I know it is a habit and all, but metric is so much easier to use. Just a simple example, 370 feet elevation over a mile of road, what grade does this correspond to? And how about another example, 120 vertical meters over 1 km of road? 120/1000 = 12%. Easy. How would you do the same with feet and miles in your head?? 5280 feet per mile… 370/5280… Sorry, I do not have a computer in my head… Who has invented such user-unfriendly system of units? Fine, one can do math in inches separately, math in feet separately, math in miles separately, but they do not mix well. The world probably thinks we are dumb and cannot count beyond 12.
