    Time Zones on Forums?

    Anyone else have problems with the forum time not being correct?

    I live in Oklahoma, central time zone.

    So in my user options I set it to GMT -6 (Central Time). But then at the bottom of the page is says that it is like 10:50, which it cleary is NOT 10:50 in the central time zone...it is about 9:50.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    yep.. even when set on eastern time for my time zone it's still off by an hour and some odd minutes, sorta annoying

    I thought GMT -6 was EST.

    I think it is...but the forum admins (or whoever set up the site) seem to think thats is central time. Plus about 7 random minutes off just for fun.

    And for reference, GMT right now is around 18:40, plus or minus a few minutes.
