Changing Time Zone

  • I noticed that my time zone is incorrect. Is there a way to change it?

  • Unfortunately I don't think so.
    Here in the UK my post timings are always an hour adrift, ahead of what they should be, which makes me think that the forum is fixed on mainland Western Europe Time.
    :(

  • It should follow the time zone of the country you've select in your profile. However, it doesn't detects daylight savings.

  • I thought it did - but tended to be a couple of weeks late.

    It doesn't?

    I couldn't select a time zone in my profile because there is no option to do so.

    Account profile, not the forum's one. See here

    Ah yes, you're right, forget what I said before, I was mis-remembering! :doh:
    My posts are correctly timed in the summer, but not in the winter, and I assume this is the same for everyone.

    I still do not see an option to do that.

    Can't you see an option to select your country?

  • Timestamps look like shit anyway.
    I'd love to not only have an option to select an exact GMT+, but also to choose the time format. Even simple cellphones have that: like 12h or 24h, eg. On many sites there are full formattting options available, even to manually correct the code.

    Yes.

  • Yes

    Then, what is the problem? You read the replies on this topic, right?

    I do.

  • I do.

    Then you probably should have read the one saying that the forum uses the time zone of the country that you set up in your account settings.

    So, just select your country and its time zone should be used.

    Thanks.

  • Some countries do cross multiple time zones. How do they do it then?

    Here in the US, we have 6 time zones and one or two states that straddle time zones (Arizona and another state do not observe Daylight Savings Time; in the case of Arizona that makes it the same as Mountain time part of the year and Pacific the rest). I certainly hope users in California don't get assigned to the time I see (Eastern) ...

  • How do they do it then?

    I guess they should use the official one - if there is one - or maybe the one of the capital city.

  • ^Official^ WHAT?
    In RF, there are 10 zones, all official.
