Is there any way to change the Time Zone for the Forum?
« on: November 04, 2017, 06:04:18 PM »
It's a minor detail, but I have to admit it annoys me to read my post say that I created it 6:01PM rather than 8:01PM.

It's purely a perspective thing but it annoys me a bit to have to constantly add two hours to any forum post if I want to get the time they posted correct.

There is the "Time Offset" setting:

Thank you very much, it took me a bit to figure out how to get there.

The trick was to go to Profile Info and go to Modify Profile from there.

I'm more used to it being part of the Account Settings.

How many years have I been frustrated by that but never figured out how to fix it myself?  Thanks, MDM!!

Thankyouthankyouthankyou very much for asking this question. Off to fix mine now...

Wait! I'm back. It's fine. Did someone fix this for the entire MMM universe?

You think you have a problem, Raj! I live in SE Australia, 18 hours ahead of the forum time. Thank you MDM for showing us how to adjust the time.
