Just noticed that when I post something to a forum or list, the post time shows as an hour later than when I actually post it.

i.e. I post at 10.53am, BGG shows me posting at 11.53am.

I am guessing this is something I can set/correct but where/how please?

Might have something to do with daylights savings time - do you remember when things started looking off by an hour?

Yeah...us North Americans change the clocks earlier. Everything should sync up again next week.

So is this still a problem? If you save your timezone now (you'll have to save it again--I made some changes a week or so ago) it should properly adjust.

Never noticed the addition of this setting. Nice!

It would be perfect though if we would be able to switch to 24h format on top of that...
