View topic - time offset
A few minutes ago I was checking the shoutbox and saw a shout made... tomorrow!
In other words, the time offset was messed up, which had never happened to me before. Anyway, I went to my profile and had to put my offset in "-6" (my time zone is GMT -4) in order for it to work, which is very weird because, if I recall correctly, I used to use the default because my time was somehow the same as the site's 'official' time.
Why the site's 'official' time was changed is beyond my knowledge, but may I suggest that the "time offset" thingy be in relation to GMT/UTC? I know that I'm GMT -4, and I'm sure most people know their time zones in relation to GMT/UTC, so it's easier than some seemingly random 'official' time.
Or maybe it was all just my computer playing tricks on me?

The times shown used to be close for me with an offset of +15 although my time zone is GMT + 9.5. Now the current time displays as 18:21 when it is 10:51 so 8 hours out (the half hour never worked)
