Post editing time limit bug

It's 0120 here. I posted something at 0045, but when I try to edit it, it tells me I'm over the four hour limit. I'm pretty sure it hasn't been four hours, the 0045 number seems about right.

Is there a known bug with this? It's not a big deal, but I didn't see it on a search.

edit to add: the times I'm seeing seem to be eastern, but it's still less than four hours, maybe two hours, 15 minutes.

The real bug is in the wording of the message.
If you edit a post shortly after posting, you will see a message above the editing box showing how much time you have left to edit.
This message counts down from 120 minutes, so that looks like the real limit.
That is "four hours" in ATS time, but only two hours in the rest of the universe.

Yeah ATS is in some kind of time warp

I just found that out myself a couple of days ago.

I tried to edit something in less than 4 hours and I was locked out.

Same thing happened to me last night. Wanted to edit my personal true story, which was kinda long. And couldnt edit even though it had only been a couple hours

The time limit is, and has always been (or at least has long been,) two hours, not four.

all edits are equal - but some are more equal than others - i have edited posts 8 hours post facto - i believe this bug is linked to the ATS time code bug
