For the past few days I have noticed that ATS posting times and my system times appear to be 1 hour different then they should be. Note the screen shot I just took. As you can see my system says it is just after 2:25 yet current posting times are indicate others are posting at 3 PM
Anyone know why.

(Edit to delete screen shot SO explains below it was do to DOS attack


Now that I have posted as you can see my post time is 3:50 yet my system clock reads 2:50. see what I mean that is one hour ahead of me. Am I a time traveler


I have my time zone set right I set and reset it several times to CST yet tims for ATS indicate EST. Is this a board problem??

I haven't noticed it but I will see as soon as this has posted. It has seemed to me in the past that the time is usually off by a few minutes.

Wow! that last post was off by several hours. I reset my time zone so we'll see. The minutes are off by a couple.

Edit:

Now, I'm off by an hour and a couple of minutes.

Same thing here!!! I've used the suggestion button earlier this week, but no reply.

My quick fix for that was to go to settings, then edit profile, and change my time zone to compensate. Mine should be GMT-6:00 hrs. Central Time, I now have to use GMT -7:00 hrs. Mountain Time.....

As for me, I'm still waiting for a reply, or a fix for the problem..................

One hour and two minutes. I´ve known this for days and I reported it too. It has been fixed now, I can see.

Actually this was the reason why I made this post the other day...





edit: correction. it has not been fixed yet anyway... must be something wrong with my eyes

It's been an issue since our server needed rebooting after last weekend's DDoS attack.

I've been waiting for a slow time to reset the time and let the posts normalize, but right now I've had far too much of this:

to be much good.

would it explain this post here -

www.abovetopsecret.com... which was 'apparantly' created on 17-3-2006, edited on 16-3-2006 and then edited again on 3-18-2006?

if so, then does anybody know how come i remember this very same thread from several weeks ago, (i.e. it was not started a few days ago on the 17th)?

Possible Solutions:

1. - Time Warp

2. - Experiencing Time loss phenomenon

3. - You have entered into a new dimension. Welcome to the Twilight Zone!!!

4. - Aliens don't have the same concept of time as we do.

5. - You might just be mistaken about the thread, and/or the time that you saw it first appear.


Remember the matrix has you now......

The "edited on" time stamp in posts are made from the timezone which is set in the editor´s profile, I believe. The "created on" uses the timezone set in your (or the reader´s) profile. The "created on" will show different values for people in different timezones. Note that the "3-18-2006 edit" was made by Springer and not the original poster.

in some countries the clocks went forward an hour. such as mine... england. i do know that in america they don't bother with the clocks going forward/backward. maybe that's it?

while the (gmt+) time settings may explain the 17th/16th date difference, and us time formatting would explain springers edit, it doesnt explain how come i rememeber the thread being several weeks old. even changing the clocks for summertime doesnt explain that one


must be the matrix then

I'm thinking twilight zone...........

At any rate, I notice ATS time is now correct, more or less. No more 1 hour difference for me here.

Ive been having this problem and I went onto my settings to change my time offset. I live in england (GMT) and in the GMT time shown on the website was 9 hours out yesterday and is 6 hours out today! Im confused!

Most of the US does set their clocks ahead, but they just changed at like 2am Sunday morning (I think). There are a few sane states that keep the same time year round though, like Hawaii and Arizona.
