    On the old boards the choice of the proper timezone showed the proper time - here it doesn't. :look If I stick to my correct timezone (with or without DST), I'm an hour back. Now I chose a timezone one hour ahead of me to have the correct time show up. Any ideas how to have the correct timezone and the correct time at the same time?

    It's probably some issue with the DST settings. I'll look into it.

    Hmmm.

    As per the backend, all registered users settings in regard to date/time will override the default. The default only counts for guests and newly registered users before they manually change it themselves. Sooo I'd say just poke your own DST settings until you get it right, and be happy. :p

    I've just changed mine, and yet the banner at the top is still dark as though it's night time here.....

    The time frames for when it changes do appear to be a bit wonky. Mine went dark at about 4:30 this afternoon, and my time is displaying correctly.

    It doesn't change. Azi changed it once from day to night because of issues with seeing the navigation on top of the banner.

    Ah, missed that note.

    And I think I was the one who started complaining about the issues seeing the navigation stuff on top of the banner :look
