Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening to everybody,

As most of you have no-doubt realised we're based in the UK and therefore all the dates/times displayed on the site are in reference to GMT/BST - UK local time.

Because we've now amassed a large audience outside of the UK (mainly North America, Central Europe and Australia) we've added some timezone support to the website - you'll have to be logged in to use it though.

Once logged in, go to your profile and select a new timezone from the list provided, then as-if-by-magic all the times on the website should be in your local time.

Obviously we need YOUR help testing this feature so please try it, let us know here of any problems - including missing time-zones.

Good luck!

EDIT: Seems to be a few seconds behind (or maybe that's just my computer), but that's nothing to worry about. Thanks Ant!

@Chibi Link,

I appreciate that some of the abbreviations aren't quite the international codes - these are just what PHP provides.. I'll see what I can do to change them tho, I've already changed the 'Australian Eastern Standard Time' label in the profiles.

As for DST, everything should be DST aware for those named regions (ie, you won't have to change anything). At the moment the UK is in BST and therefore it shows BST not GMT - but that'll automatically change later in the month.

@Mange,

Like I said in my original post, some timezones are missing and that's why I've asked you to test it. I've added 'Central European TIme' now, that should be what you need right?

Same for me, 'cept it's 4:05. I'm very glad this was implemented. Thanks much, Ant!

@Chibi-Link, thanks for that... I'll make sure I add another option for the states that don't use DST, can you name one as an example? :)

Thanks to everyone else for testing it out, seems its working :)

Works in China (the whole country is GMT +8). This makes things way more convenient! Thanks!

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.

It would be great if we in our posts could... write time in local time and users over the world see it in their time. Some sort of time tag. Great for setting up matches. What do you think of that? It should be presented with some nice graphic to distuingish it from regular text.

Hmmm... interesting idea guys, that would be quite possible - I haven't seen that on forums before though, is there any existing code/style that we can copy/adhere too?
