[FIXED] Incorrect time?
muntdefems commented on 6 April 2013 at 2:08 pm UTC

Is it just me, or since Daylight Saving Time was adopted last week all time stamps are shown incorrectly on GoL? (e.g. when I submit a comment to an article it inmediately appears in the Latest Comments box as sent 1 hour ago)

I thought I could fix this by changing my time zone on my User Control Panel, but there isn't the option.

It would be a simple fix for me to just add an hour to all timestamps when it's working it out. Just need to find the best way to calculate if its between xdate-ydate add 1 hour to timestamps.

Edit > Hmm it's never the same date, best if I just add an option for each user then I guess?

Edit2  > Actually i will do it as an admin option, that way everyones times will always be correct

I don't really understand what you mean in your 2nd edit but now I see the correct times, so thanks!

PS: Just bear in mind that DST is not observed everywhere (in fact, most of the world doesn't observe it), so if you just added 1h to all timestamps they may now be incorrect for a lot of people...

All times on the websites are UK time anyway ;) everyone has the same timezone on this website.

Alrighty then, thanks!
