Forum time is wrong

Postby BarbaraC » Thu Dec 11, 2014 9:13 am

I just noticed that the forum is saying it's 1:11 p.m. when, in fact, it's 12:11 p.m. here in Eastern Standard Time, which is how I have it set up in my preferences. It would appear the forum prefers Daylight Savings Time. I don't blame it, but it's still wrong. :D

We're on Pacific Standard Time and it's showing Daylight Savings Time here too. Maybe it's a main forum setting the moderator has to change. The only choices I see in Profile settings are ones for Standard Time.

At least it doesn't affect the time stamp on email.

Maybe we're all in the twilight zone?? Then, of course, there is Mona who is in the middle of the night wondering what all the fuss is about :D

Reminds me --- SET YOUR CAMERA CLOCKS !! -- I forgot to do it a while back and the geotagging of my pictures came out quite odd (since the
gps track and camera timestamps were different by an hour).

Per Mike G the moderator....


The time is based on the server clock with the hosting company. Unfortunately I don't have control over that.


So I guess we'll just have to wait until Daylight Savings Time rolls around again before it matches our clock time for those that are on Standard this time of year. :roll:

I just checked it ... I'm at 1:26 MST and it shows 2:26 ... which is the correct time for the time zone they're in (somewhere in Texas?). Beats me . . .

You should all move over here. The time is showing right for me in the UK.

That's because the UK would never put up with such folderol.

I thought "down under" you would be using "nighttime saving time" :twisted: Typically I have two time modes - to the fraction of a second on the camera so it matches up with the GPS track data and "Friday" (since I'm retired - getting it right to the nearest day is good enough) :D

Mikey

Couldn't agree more time seems less important for a lot of things since retirement.

I took my watch off the day I retired, and have never worn it since, that is over 10 years now. Why bother with the hour, when I don't know which day of the week it is.
