yes we understand that the forum time is wrong. Please adjust your timezone to match your current time until we find and solve the problem

hmm.. heres the thing, the IPB boards are set to a particular time zone in which the Admin chooses, so if you have GMT +8 and the IPB boards time is in the GMT+5 then guess what the post are recorded to the GMT+5 and not the GMT+8, so basically there really isn't a solution to this problem you just need to look at your own computer for the time and remember that you are ahead 2 hours

That's completely wrong, G2 runs on vBulletin not IPB. The time runs off the server's time by default if you're not logged in, if you are then it comes from the settings in your User Control Panel.

Lol it is still wrong Ground, what would be the point of choosing timezones in your profile if it has no affect on the forum time. My Vbulletin works fine for each person, like someone mentioned beforehand you should be able to sort it out via the DST options.







Would also like to say some of the Singaporeans on my site have some problems with time which doesn't seem to fit, you can easily change your DST/time setting so that it matches here
