Are we not all on different time zones? Or does this adjust to it?

The forum's default time depends on the location of the server it's hosted at, which clock it follows. Members can set their own time using the link in their Profile section.

Right.
My clock is set for my time, which is 2 hours off of GB time.  After daylight savings, it was only an hour off.  Now it back to the 2 hour offset.  Capeesh  ;)

There is a short period of approx 2-3 weeks between American Summertime and British Summertime.  
(I'm explaining again so as you'll know come next year...



As explained above, you lot put your clocks forward before we do here (completely messing up everything including computers, which most likely adhere to GMT).  It goes from -5 to -4 hours for a few weeks...


Yes, we own time here in London...

uh huh, that's right:
It seems to have corrected itself  :-\  It was one hour off before.


we are now again 5 hours ahead of NY and 8 ahead of California or Vancouver Pacific time here in London on BST (GMT+1) - and all is well.  

Hope you get Spring sometime soon, we've got random April Showers and 21c during the full afternoon sun ...and it doesn't get dark till after it goes all pink and blue at 8pm and it's lovely.





We also have uncoinciding dates on Mother's Days.  It's in March here (last Sunday) but in May over there.  
I used to have to buy a card in May and save it till the next March.

Here's a time-frame fact you'll understand (and love...


When you look in a mirror, you see yourself as a younger person.  

It's 1,0000000000,0000000000 trillion billion fractions of a blink, but what you are seeing in your mirror is a younger yourself !

Title: Daylight Savings

Because lawmaking bodies of every nation believe it is their duty to make laws regarding irrelevant things, the Congress of the United States decided the "Daylight Savings Time" would begin on March 11 this year.

Now, when I look at posts on the board, it shows them as being posted one hour before the correct time based on my location Eastern Time Zone, United States.

Will the board automatically adjust US-EDT as being -4 GMT, or will I have to change my settings manually?

Profile > Look and Layout Preferences > Time Offset

The forum's clock will shift for Daylight Savings automatically, but if you still need to correct the time, you can adjust your offset there.

This year, British Summer Time (BST) ends on the last weekend at the end of October.  It'll then again be GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), this is the time by which all clocks are set.


It'll change at a different time elsewhere, that's the way they seem to do it.  I'll need to find out when your clocks change in America...



Here to make you wonder and smile are a few autumnal pics:  a road in London approaching Trafalgar Square.  They've used different asphalt on one side and then on the other side where they've put down the non-skid stuff the leaves have stuck.  


'tis pretty.
