With the new forum software upgrade, the time stamped on each post is now determined by your personal preference of time zone. That over-rides the time that the forum always used to put out. The default is UTC Greenwich Mean Time.

If the time stamp on posts is not accurate, follow this procedure

* Click on your user name on the upper right corner and choose "Preferences"
* Scroll down to the drop down menu for "Your Timezone" click on that
* Choose the time from the list that is close to your local time
* Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Save Changes" button

That should do it.

Yes, Randy, the list of places and time zones is way over complicated. Users should just scroll through and pick a time that is like what their local clock says. The choices for Guatemala, Galapagos and 23 other cities for the Central Time Zone are really all the same as "Chicago" in the end. crazy
