    I set the time options for +1.00 GMT, but when I post something at 13:55 (what I just did), the time is set to 7:55! Can this be fixed, please? (I still don't like the name NTFS.org. Go back to Xp-erience.org! With the new content of course)

    Can't go with the name change :p but eventually www.xp-erience.org will redirect here

    As for the time zone...

    go to to usercp edit options and subtract 6 hours

    ie GMT ---> Central USA.

    It appears that my time is set to GMT - well, probably British Summer Time (I believe it is called over yonder).

    My actual time is GMT - 6 hours - but it is displaying time as minus 6 hours from my time - thus it appears to display GMT.

    Although that would not be the case for glaanieboy - his is also 6 hours slow, when he is supposed to be plus one hour????:confused:

    I just set mine to GMT (although I am in the central time zone in the states) and my time is now correct!

    So it appears ya have to set it for the wrong time zone ( adjusting 6 hours ahead ot make it correct!:p

    I had to set it to +7.00 GMT Bangkok, Hanoi, Jakarta to set it correctly. As for GMT, I thought that was the time set in Greenwich? So a server move shouldn't make any difference.
    [edit]
    Woah, thought I was living in the past, but it seems that the time has been restored. Thank EP!

    I dunno if this has to do with the posting problem earlier, but the time is again not correct. This time it is set to + 5 hours of the normal time.
    Damn, I am nagging about time, do I? I am almost like that bunny in Alice in Wonderland.


    BTW What do you think about my sig and avatar :p

    I'm nor sure what is going on :)

    All I can think is that during the time the server problems were occuring in earlier.. even the clock stopped...

    The forum settings are correct
    and I am guessing your individual settings are correct, so you just need to grin and bare it for the night :)
