Should we move the board to standard GMT time?

I have also considered an option on users profiles to set their own offset from GMT so that posts appear in their local time.

Thoughts on either change?

I like the latter very much.

The later does require the former too. If a user isn't logged in, then the default would be gmt.

Please let us control the offset from GMT in our profiles.

GMT means "green mean thing", right? We wouldn't want any of those. OIP sounds better.

The ability to set would be nice.

The only quesion left is what to do about all the messages already stored as local time to the system. I suppose I could write a convertor to walk back through. (17k messages - whew).

Time of day doesn't much matter to me on yesterday's messages or earlier beyond chronology/sequence. Leave them as is.

I about have it set. Lots of little checking to do yet. You never realize how many places have time displays on the system until you dig into it.

Ok, all set. Set your timezone offset and id off your profile.

Yeah works great, now I just have to get used to not mentally adding that hour to all the post times ....

When I was testing it out, I keep having to stop to think, so I thought the 3char time zone id was a good idea.
