    Is there a way to set up Stratics, both in regards to posts as well as Private Messages to all display a certain time zone time ?

    I am asking, because with posters from all over the world, a time zone might be matching some posters' time zone but not others'.

    Is it possible to custom the showing time on displayed posts or personal messages to a given poster's time zone time ?
    How ?

    Thanks.

    You can set it up as your time zone and all and you will see the time of their post at your time zone.


    So if Petra was posting right now and she is in England and it shows she posted at 5:10 am ( this is my time atm) and its 10:10 her time. So she sees me posting at 11 am her time and its 6 am here east coast time but as she views it on her screen it is showing I posted at 11 am her time.

    Really not an issue Popps so I dont see what road you are trying to travel down with this topic.

    Why would it matter what her or any other posters time when they post because you are seeing it in your time zone and what time they posted inm your time.

    Showing the time zones of each individual poster would be rather confusing. Why would you want it?

    There's not a way to show each user's timezone separately. When people want to speak in the same time language, they usually refer to GMT/Zulu time.

    You can set your own timezone in your preferences:
