Not sure if it is a forum issue or my issue but the time of any of my posts always shows as 1 hour later than I posted.

As far as I can tell, the clock needs to be moved manually in your profile for BST. See screenshot below - go to 'Account Settings', then to Board Preferences' in the user control panel. If you scroll to the bottom of that, it allows you to select your time zone.

Testing a thankyou at 16:09

It is unusual that BST has to be turned on and off manually. Typically if you have BST on it'll change from GMT automatically during periods of BST. Not a problem though.

I've always thought it very odd that everyone has their own time settings on the forum too. :wtf:

Usually I run a batch update of everyone's account to turn summer time on or off, but hadn't done it this time - have now just done it (so everyone now on winter time, regardless of whether you've set it yourself).

Could you please batch update us all to any other time than 2020? :lol:

Cheers Paul, explains why most of us had indeed never noticed. At least its only been a month or so, we're not losing it that badly. :D

Thanks Paul, I usually visit using an iPad so might struggle to change the time!
