Time Zone?

Postby TriumphRider87 » Tue Feb 06, 2018 11:41 pm

Is it just me... or is the timezone for the forum off by an hour? Maybe still on Daylight Savings?

Or is the forum secretly hosted in Nova Scotia?

I knew it... it's all a Canadian plot, centered on the Maritime Provinces. That must be it. ;-)

If you're wondering what I meant... according to the forum I posted the above at 11:41pm. Except it's 11:06pm now, and I posted that about 25 minutes ago.

This clearly means either:

a) The forum is secretly run by a group of Nova Scotians pretending to be Floridians who managed to think of everything except the dratted timezone difference...
or
b) We've discovered time travel!

Go under your "User Control Panel", "Board Preferences", "Edit Global Settings".

Change the time zone and it should display correctly.

Entirely depends on the timezone of the reader, not what it was where you are when you posted it. :D

As I am in the UK, and it is not yet British summer time (BST), that's showing to me as 3:41 am. :D

And the above post is time-stamped correctly.

I haven't changed anything... but we are in that funny time period when the US has gone to Daylight Savings and Europe has not. Let's see what April 1st brings...

Huh. Apparently it was all due to my browser or some other irreproducible ghost... Or possibly just a PEBCAK. Anyway, timestamps are all good now.
