Hi folks, just noticed that after I posted a reply to a thread here http://www.csscreator.com/css-forum/ftopic17355-0-asc-15.html I see that the time is displayed as

Quote:
9:52 am
but in actual fact it was posted at 10.52 am. I am in the UK and am on GMT time, so shouldn't the BST correction have been taken into account? Or do I have to change my profile?

I have posted quite a bit since the change-over to BST last weekend, but didn't notice if the other posts times were correct. Shock :roll:

Why don't you look in your profile options and see if anything looks like it might affect the 'Timezone' Wink

Does it really matter? I will still see your posts posted to GMT it's just the common reference, my posts show as being posted an hour ago.

My post time is out by 1hr :shock:

The fact that the time zone needs to be changed twice a year for UK members is indeed a pain, and can be confusing if you are not aware of it. Such is the way of things when a forum has an international audience :roll: There's no way the forum could pick up your system time unless it used JavaScript.

I come from East Kent, but that's as far as I will go with my location as I wish to remain anonymous in case I provoke some psycho-nutter during the course of my moderator duties.

Yeh, fair enough.

Well coming from East Kent explains a lot, I can see why you would want to remain anonymous. Laughing out loud Cheers mate. Wink
