I think the server time is out. Right now, the forum time says it's 8 at night, but it's 9 in the morn here.
Looks like it's going to be another sunny day here in SA.

The server time is correct for where it is (give or take a second or two) It seems like the forum time (in your prefs) shouldnt say GMT +10 if your in melbourne for example, but rather +0 as your in the same time zone as this server.

The option is (whatever) +GMT but the value is really is related to the server time zone, if you know of a fix let me know!

It annoys me to, but I havent had the need to look into in till now :rolleyes:

cheers!

Steve: Pretty sure the server GMT time is still advanced by one hour over true GMT. I'm in US central time zone, which is GMT - 6. Server is running an hour ahead of true GMT.

Not a huge issue to most, I'll agree, but it does confuse me a bit when I look at times for posted responses.
