Is it me or is your timestamp off?  It showed a time post 4 hours after my actual time!  Is this board in Hawaii?  LOL

Good catch.  I had it set to GMT, but now it's set to GMT -4 to compensate for DST, so it *should* be accurate for EST now.

OK Now GMT -5

Hmm that didn't make any difference.

Come to think of it, each member should be able to set their own time zone in their profile.  System time is now set to GMT -4, which is correct for Nats time during daylight savings time.

If you posted your message at 7:56 this morning, then its right on. And yes each member has the option to choose their time zone in their profile settings

All U.S. East Coast posters will want to set GMT -4 during the summer (to compensate for daylight savings time) and GMT -5 during the offseason.

U.K. posters will all want flat GMT.  I don't know if we have any visitors from any other time zones yet, but I'll be happy to help anyone who needs it.

System time is set to GMT -4 (aka Nats time)
