Wrong Time

Post by Noel Mc » Sat Aug 26, 2017 3:06 pm

This could just be me, but when I'm on this site, the time always displays as an hour behind. It is currently 16.05, but this will post as 15.05. A problem with daylight savings?

At a guess, I'd say the site must be programmed to use UTC (aka GMT), which officially does not observe daylight savings. No idea why, though.

Are the times wrong both while you're logged in and while you're not? When I'm logged in, the times are correct according to my (Canadian) time zone, but they're in UTC when I'm browsing the site as a guest.

"The use-mention distinction" is not "strictly enforced here".

You can change it in your own personal settings. Go to user control panel and then board preferences.
