Times are set in individual profiles only...it's not a master field!

That's true, but the master time is set in the "Admin Panel", right?

Right now, it's 5:14pm eastern daylight time for me...Is it only me??? But it reads 3:14pm...

Maybe Larry can help me...

I had this discussion with the Admin of the board...for whatever reason it has to be done in each person's profile...I've tried it through the admin but it doesn't work (really) !!

I have a suggestion. Try setting master time to GMT. Then hopefully every user can adjust their own profile accordingly.

I pointed out in this post that the board software doesn't seem to account for daylight savings time. So setting master time to GMT would make sense.

However, if the intitial master time was something other than GMT setting it to GMT now might screw up the timestamps of historical posts. If it was initially set to something other than GMT, maybe change it back to what it was. But, this might screw with timestamp of posts since it was changed.

Not sure. I think my initial suggestion is a better go forward approach. Every post will then have a GMT timestamp and will display correctly for every user as they adjust their profile twice a year if they are in a DST time zone.
