 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I searched about this but couldn't find anything. I'm in Australia so set the Time Offset to 16. It works fine at first. But after coming back to the site later on the offset is put back to 5. This happens on both my laptop and desktop. I'm using Firefox on both. Is this a known problem?

Works for me...

• Click Profile (upper-left corner)

• Click Forum Profile Information

• Change Time zone

• Click Submit

Do you logout / login?

I just tried it on the laptop, telling the site to remember me, closed firefox then opened it again and the timezone was correct. But after logging out and back in it reset back to offset 5 instead of 16. I've cleared cookies etc several times but it keeps happening.

Ahh, silly me. I was setting the time offset in 'Preferences', not in 'Forum Profile Information'. What's the time offset for?

So you seen when posts happened in your time zone, not GMT.
