Tanis, I know this is not the best solution, but what if you picked the time zone that is one hour off from the one you are in (Would that be -6 or -8)? You would have the wrong time zone selected, but at least it should show the right time.

Cool Setting your correct time.

Check your computers time in the bar, way at the bottom right of your machine screen.
You can modify and change your time and etc. on the Control Panel. Look for date and time icon and change it to your correct location.
Otherwise if that is correct, I found when I registered for the first time, it asked me for what "time zone" I was in. So go to your private information and check to make sure the time zone is correct.
Hope I have helped. If I have not perhaps someone else can solve this little problem.

Tanis ... if it makes you feel any better .... I just noticed that a message I just posted was an hour off! It was 6:19pm here and it posted as 7:19pm. Curious since the server is SUPPOSED to be set to GMT ..... but it appears that it is not. Would explain your problem ....

OOPS!

Hummm ... this is most curious ....

I just played with the time settings some more. If I set it to "auto detect DST" then times are spot on. I know that as of this moment I'm on CST, which is GMT -6 hours.

But, the most curious thing is that if I change my settings - the time of other posts change! For example - if I have the "DST Correction alwas on" option checked, then Elf's post as of 10:14pm shows up as 10:14pm ... and anything I post is 1 hour off. If I have "Auto detect DST" checked, Elf's message shows up as having been posted at 9:14pm!!!

There's something strange here!

Tanis - set your time to your correct GMT correction and then set the DST option to "auto detect". Assuming that the time on your comnputer is correct, and you have the GMT options on it set correctly, this "should" then work here.

EDIT NOTE: I posted this at 8:22pm local time - and the message showed 8:22pm - with DST set to "Auto Detect".
