Wrong Timestamps on Messages

  • All my posts are time stamped an hour earlier than the time they were actually posted.
    Is this an anomaly cased by daylight saving time and can it be fixed?
    My computer clock is correct of course.

  • Probably it's UTC and not localtime.
    Your computer clock is not supposed to affect server timestamps.

  • That would make sense if it was UTC, which is what we're on here in England during the winter months, but an hour ahead of that in the summer months.
    Presumably then everyone in the States, for instance, has their messages time stamped even more wrongly!
    Most other forums I use allow you to set your time zone in the user setup, and say whether you want daylight saving time automatically adjusted for.
    Yet another thing that should be here in this one!

  • I had that problem myself about a month ago, then it just disappeared. Since there is no place for you to set your actual time zone, we still don't know where they get it from and why it is sometimes wrong ...

  • Just made a post and noticed that its time-stamp now seems to be correct!

  • I think the time some is your time some in the place you are, except you did not log in and it seems to be Norway time zone.

  • I think the time some is your time some in the place you are, except you did not log in and it seems to be Norway time zone.

    Edited: I think the time zone used is your time zone in the place you are, but if you did not log in, it seems to be Norway time zone.

  • It should be, but sometimes has not been. And my native time zone is not an hour different from Norway, so I know that when I had this problem I wasn't seeing Norway time.
