My last post was posted at 10:55pm by my local time (Pacific Standard Time - GMT-8) but showed up as 6:55am the following morning. Also my contribution made in 2008 was credited to 2009 (and I miss out on the orange background for the patron badge).

I thought BGG headquarters (I'm picturing something like the set of 24) was located in Texas or New Mexico. I have no idea why I got that idea. Neither of those states are more than 2 time zones from Portland. Now, I'm picturing the Azores. Where is BGG?

Oops, I miscounted on my globe. It appears not to be in the Azores. GMT makes more sense.

You probably need to reset your time zone in your account. Mouse over my geek, than hit account. Go to settings.

I changed my time zone, but everything remains the same. Maybe it's a game within BGG - navigate the site with a skewed reference frame of time. It's like I never went to sleep, but it's already 7:30 am. Extraordinary. Maybe I need to get a set of clocks like they have in the movies, only mine would say: Portland, BGG, Lost, Twin Paradox time ...

laugh I have a "BGG Time" clock on the desktop of my computer at home! I do that because although forum posts show up in local time, some other areas of BGG (like GeekLists) still show BGG time.
