Since this forum doesn't have a way to adjust for Daylight Savings, you will need to go into your "Profile" and scroll down towards the bottom. There is a spot for the timezone. All you'll need to do is change it to GMT -5 in the spring and back to GMT -6 in the fall. That is the current work around to show the correct time.


***Edit: This is no longer needs to be done. Just check "Summer Time/DST is in effect" in your User Control Panel.***

What does this have to do with changing my time?

Just an update on Daylight Savings. You shouldn't need to change this anymore. In your "User Control Panel" go into "Board preferences" and set your timezone to UTC-6 Central and make sure "Summer Time/DST is in effect:" is checked as "Yes".

Nice try, but I still had to manually change it back to DST in in effect "no" ...it seems everyone else is still off an hour as well.

Here is a funny cartoon about time, and timelines.
