Where is this forum?

It is 2:15PM in Maine. I just responded to a post and see that it claims 7:10 . . .

5 hours EAST of the easternmost timezone in the USA? Wouldn't that be out in the middle of the Atlantic somewhere?

Is this server on a boat or something? Or did the admins just not set the clock right? What gives?

Your settings are reflecting GMT. YOu have to change your individual settings to reflect the EST time zone of the eastern US.

Try clicking user CP and fixing your settings from there ...

Click on edit options and scroll down to time and date ...

Time that appears on the screen is set based on the settings in the UserCP. If you want Eastern time you need to set GMT -5.
