So I noticed this issue some time ago but haven't really brought it up until now.

Days of the week don't take into account different timezones it seems. For example, Brett's post was actually made on Friday Moscow time (GMT+3) but since at that moment it was still Thursday in the UK, it shows Thursday. A bit confusing.

I noticed this within a month of joining, it's messy when you're behind UK time too. Can usually figure out which day it was really posted but not always, though it's not hugely important unless I'm trying to compile charts from certain days for the Multichart.

I dont understand the issues, posts show the time based on your own time zone so everything is uniform..

Brett's post was made on Friday morning (not Thursday morning as posted). Jack's post was made on Friday morning and correctly shows this as the time difference (GMT+3) has registered that it's now Friday morning (as the post was made at 3:03am).

I've noticed since the clock went forward in the UK that the posts that were made during British Winter Time have all been moved ahead by one hour. So for example a post that was made a few days ago at 3:00 PM is now listed as 4:00 PM.

Is there a particular reason for this?

When I joined this site I was living in New Zealand. I've been back in the UK for nearly 3 years now yet it hasn't updated that so all the posts are still appearing in the future!

Which time zone are you set as under your 'board settings'?
