Will I ever be able to convenience people that "show year" is actually a
useful feature when taking screenshots over time?

Now, that I've upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 and GNOME 3.28, it looks like
I'll have to start this 2009 battle all over again. It will not allow me
to format the clock the way I want it to display.

In Unity, I could at least achieved my desired clock format with a

gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.datetime time-format "'custom'" ;
gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.datetime custom-time-format "'%A |
%m-%d-%Y | %l:%M%p'"

In GNOME 3.28 on Ubuntu 18.04, I've yet to figure out a way to achieved
my desired format. The GUI doesn't offer "show year" and I've yet to
discover a command (like the one above) that achieves the exact custom
format I desire.

Bug description:
  indicator-datetime, Ubuntu 12.10

  The Ubuntu menu bar clock offers no setting to "show year".

  Yes, I know what year it is, but I have very good reason for wanting
  it shown. For years, I've been collecting screen-shots, when I'm doing
  something I think is pretty cool. When I use to use windows, these
  screen shots (over the years) have always showed the current year.

  However, since April of 2007 (The date I started using Ubuntu
  exclusively), my screen shots have not included the year, because the
  Gnome clock doesn't provide this capability.

  insensitive and unchecked whenever 'Date and month' is unchecked..."
