So, "Posting Activity By Time"... Whose time?
« on: April 23, 2012, 07:05:08 PM »
I was looking over some member's "Posting Activity By Time", and I got curious about something.  Are they labeled with the user's local time or my time zone?

Easy way to check would be to change your time zone. If it moves, it's yours. If not, it's the servers (because the server, when it sends data, has no knowledge of other members' time zones).

Oh... clever!  I'll have to experiment with that when it's not my bedtime.  Thanks!  ;D

Please let us know what you find out because I've been curious about that too! (Though probably you can tell if its your time since you know when you mainly post I would have thought).

So for anyone curious like I was, the time you see on member's posting activity is based on your time, not their time.  Mystery solved!

That makes sense because if you wanted to try and time your login with a co-writers so you could have a posting frenzy, knowing when they are around according to your clock is logical.
