[Info] Timezones & Calendar Events

Postby Belteyn » Sat Oct 30, 2010 11:12 pm

How timezones work on these forums (important for calendar events):

Timezone Setting

For you to view event times and other times correctly on these forums you must have your own Timezone settings set correctly. These are set via:

User Control Panel > Preferences > Edit global settings > My timezone

Firstly take UTC to be GMT. So if your local timezone is GMT +2 then set your Timezone to be UTC + 2.
If local Summertime is in effect then set this also.

Event Times

All event times you set should be in YOUR own local time.
If you also include the time in text then please convert to BST.

Example:

If your local timezone is UTC +1 (or GMT +1) and you want a group at 8:00pm then post an event and select 8:00 PM in the calendar. This will then appear correctly as 7:00PM to those using UTC +0, or 8:00PM for those of us with UTC +0 (Summertime +1).

Note: If you wish to include the time of the group in the text of the post then please always convert to BST, as obviously the system can't convert a text time for other members ;)

Hope that makes sense!

A reminder to everyone in a country that adjusts clocks forward one hour when summer ends to open User Control Panel and select Preferences > Edit global settings and change Summer Time to Yes.

Thank you
