Much of the world has the habit to alter its clocks a couple of times per year. The UK put its clocks back yesterday. But now, are posts now out in time? Do you want to know how to correct that?

Click here to open your profile. Near the bottom of the list that will appear is Timezone. Alter that as necessary. For example if in the UK, alter to "GMT" rather than "GMT + 1 hour".

Of course click on the "Submit" button to confirm the change you are making.

If the correct entry is made in Timezone, the time of posts will be correct, for wherever you are in the world.

Of course what you would do now, if in the UK, is to alter the setting from "GMT" to "GMT + 1 hour".

A bit contradictory there, innit? :wink: Or has this one completely gone over my head? :oops:
Ok, I'm in Nederland, what do I set it to?

Hi, set it to GMT + 2 hours.

As I write this the GMT time is 3.05.pm, so the UK having gone on to summertime it is 4.05.pm, and Netherlands etc are now on CET + summertime = 5.05.pm.
