It looks like there's two bugs involved.
First, the change-over in the United States from standard time to daylights savings time seems to have screwed up the GMT time zone offsets. I think
this is a long-standing problem with ATS, that post times are stored internally in US East Coast time, not GMT. And since different regions of the
world go in and out of 'daylights savings' time on different days of the year, problems are bound to happen.
To avoid this, set your time zone to "GMT-1" in MemCenter, until the UK enters daylights savings (which I believe is in a week or two).
The second bug is a web-page design problem that really should have been fixed long ago. It happens when you choose a time zone in MemCenter, and
press 'submit'. The setting is updated to what you selected, but when the web page refreshes, the wrong time zone is displayed in the little
drop-down listbox. Don't worry! The correct timezone is set for your account, it's just not displayed properly in MemCenter. Verify the
timezone by going to a thread page and refreshing, and seeing what the timestamps are. The annoying thing about this bug is that, every time you
change something on that MemCenter page, you have to correct the time-zone setting in the listbox before pressing submit.
