It's because of the Apostrophe i think.
Have had a similar problem before... try it without and see if it is... it at least rules it out if nothing else.

Cool, will give that a try, but it will always bother me if I can't have the apostrophe there, hahah

What happens when you select the time zone?

I've had it before and when you look back at the profile it's +3 hours.... but if you just reset it, come out of the member tools/profile bit and try and post...it should be fine.

Nothing happens, I choose the correct one (Newfoundland), hit submit and it keeps defaulting back to the Acension Islands?

Yeah....it will do on the options bit...so you're still seeing it in the settings bit.
As i say.....set it to whatever you want, hit submit.... come out of there all together and try posting.....your post time should match your "real world" time..

Other than that....

Sadly no, that did not work, my posts are showing an hour and a half in the future. I guess it bothers me more, because my little island has its own time zone and its something we are sensitive about, hahaha

for St. John's to show properly in your mini-profile you'll need to copy/paste the following:

St. John&apos;s

See if that doesn't help.

Zactly... with an apostrophe as opposed to comma between PA & USA

St. John&apos;s, Newfoundland

... will make your's show properly, or as intended, as well.
