2) When I posted something tonight to the Orange County.... Let's guage interest in a get together thread... it looks like I posted it on ET, when I am on PT... like I am up making posts at almost 1am... NOT! Anyhow... if post times could be reflected in the time zone it was originated, versus ET, that would be great. I don't remember this ever being the case before, but maybe I did not watch it so closely.
Click on the 3 gear menu, then click on Forum Settings to change the time zone. NOTE: Most of the US time zones do not have a DST option available; if you are on Daylight Savings Time you will need to pick Standard Time for the next time zone east of yours (e.g., if you are on Pacific Daylight Time, select Mountain Standard Time. Those in the Eastern and Hawaii time zones may select the corresponding Daylight Time.
If this problem existed before the change it is unlikely most would have noticed because the time was usually displayed relative to the current time, not as an absolute value (i.e., "10 seconds ago" instead of 12:08:45 AM).
