It is for all the forums I visit for my profile. Like here, I have it set in my preferences to be Hawaii time zone, but it shows all the post time stamps one hour earlier.

I believe a few of the timezones are a little off, for example Argentina is an hour ahead. I believe the techs are aware of this and other timezones being incorrect but there had been no word on when an update will be provided.

Ok thanks! I hope they can correct it soon. As an admin it is important to know when things are actually posted for contests and such

You could tell you members to exactly post the correct time in the their posts for contests.

Can we consider this solved now?

It's on all forumotion forums, not just mine. Even here, if I go into my preferences it shows this:



and aside from it being a problem with contests, it's just annoying and should be easily fixed.

No, I do not consider that a fix since it is a problem on all forumotion boards.

Please try not to double post in the future. Your posts need to be separated by a 24-hour period. Use the edit button instead.

Well when Forumotion changed the system that was being used I believe last year, some time information was not correct. I do not know if the techs fixed them yet.

Buttercup, you could probably link this issue with a previously reported issue, and still unresolved for Western Australia, as we like the EU have many different time zones when it comes to DST - 1 state doesn't even have it Shocked

http://help.forumotion.com/t117106-system-clock-for-australia

It was reported by Leeloo our previous communications officer.
