Default I'm confused about just one thing.

How come when people post on the forums, the Time Zone changes on a regular basis. Has anyone else noticed?

I've noticed when PP for example has Posted, I have posted and other regular members, the time zone jumps from GMT London to GMT -5 hours?

I am right aren't I or am I seeing things that aren't their? I'm really confused over it. Anyone else noticed?

Doesn't change for me.

GMT -5 is probably the forum default. Try changing it to a different time zone in your settings, and then change it back and re-save.

before you log in, it displays the forum server's time. if you log in, it shows your local time.
when you see gmt-5 it is probably before you logged in.
