Yeah. It was doing the same for me too. Usually the forum time will show exactly twelve hours behind my local time. But, you can change the time in your profile to make it to your own local time. Click on your profile and scroll down to "Preferences". You'll see below "Skin Selection" -- "Time Format" and "Time Offset"

Now, the time format is a little complicated its got all this abbriviations when you click on the help but I tried that and it just looked strange for me. Now the "Time Offset" is the thing. Just type in the number of hours ahead or behind the time that is currently showing now on the forum and you'll get your local time. If you want it twelve hours ahead, just type in 12 or in my case it was just 6 hours difference from the time that was showing, which was around 5:30 am.

So, now, it should show your local time. Hope this helps. Also, I think I'll leave one of the admins or Jochen to do the tech explaining if I have it all wrong.

Thanks, Solskie.  My time was off, too, and has been ever since I joined last October.    I didn't realize I could adjust it myself.  Now, for the first time, I have the right time.

The standard time is now set to CET. (Central European Time).

If you live in the UK, set the time offset to -1, if you live on the East Coast of the US, set it to -6, if you live on the West Coast, -9.

For other locations, check this site: http://www.worldtimezone.com/

Use European cities like Paris, Berlin, Brussels as a start (NOT London!!!) and then check the time in your location. Put the difference in the "Time Offset" section in your profile.

Hope this is clear

Hi there,

Well, the "problem" (or rather the explanation) is that A+F has got another hosting provider during the move. Until last Saturday, the former host was located in Chicago, IL, and now A+F is located in Germany... And since the forum basically assumed there hasn't been any move at all, LOL.

To correct this, I just configured the correct time shift. So, everything should be back to "normal" now, LOL.

Almost everytime I post, it comes up with an error message, saying that my last post was less than fifteen seconds ago, even if it wasn't. Is this happening to anyone else?

I got that last night, just the once.
Really annoying as it was a long post too.

I just thought it was a problem with my computer because I was having trouble with LJ entries, and my MSN kept changing my userpic too.

Odd.
