    I'm in the central time zone of the US. Right now, it's 2:22 pm. The time on the server is about 5 or 6 hours ahead of me. What's up with that?

    Holy crap. I'm just gonna make up an entire thread just talking to myself! I just figured out on the control panel that I have the setting set to GMT 00:00 myself. I changed it to CST and voila', guess what? The posts now match my timezone. How ingenius!

    I feel like such a newbie. What a loser! And look, I'm still responding to myself. Geez.

    The server is in Dallas, Texas. But the owner is English so the forum is set to default to GMT :)

    You can change the time on your profile to your timezone.

    Nope, owner is British, Admin is Dutch, and server is in the US. It is currently located at The Planet's secure data center located in Dallas, Texas.
