It does appear that you are posting Eastern Standard Time, but everything is appearing as Pacific Time. That makes some sense since the McD Clan is located in that time zone.
Hi, and thanks, Carol. I hadn't noticed that.
My post times at this discussion board had always shown up on the board on my monitor in my "real time", since I originally registered here and set all the options. For some reason, at the time I started this thread for help about how the time was registering, my post times had shifted to 3 hours "off" from my local time--but I adjusted at the profile and thought it had been correct since then.
Recently carolve, the Board Monitor, "un-registered" me to try to correct a program problem about my not receiving notices at my email box about posts, which "un-registering" eliminated all my settings, and changed all my previous posts to "guest" posts, and then I had to go through the usual steps of registering, to "re-register". (The process worked to solve that "no notification" problem.
) The one hour time change might have happened then, and I didn't set it to where it should have been.
I'll test now here to be sure. I live in the Central Time Zone, and as I am about to post this response, it is approx. 4:22 pm my local time. Does it show up that way when you read the Posted Time at the top of this post? Is Rochester in the Eastern Time Zone?
I've wondered if the time that people read is adjusted by the board software program locally for each person's time zone?
