How to put your forum clocks forwards/back

Post by Elsie » Tue Apr 03, 2007 2:56 pm

As we all know, the clocks change twice a year. Although this does have the horrible effect of messing with our body clocks, we can all set our forum clocks to the correct time to stop it from messing with our minds!

To ensure that the forum is showing you the correct time of posts, follow these simple instructions:

For spring dates where the clocks go forward:
:arrow: Go to your Profile at the top of the page
:arrow: If the time is set to GMT, change to GMT+1

For autumn dates where the clocks go back:
:arrow: Go to your Profile at the top of the page
:arrow: If the time is set to GMT+1, change to GMT

On the last Sunday in March
0100 GMT becomes 0200 BST

On the last Sunday in October
0200 BST becomes 0100 GMT

Don't forget to mark it in your calendars!

Instructions for how to change your forum clocks are in the post above. If you change your forum clocks this will ensure that you will be able to correctly view the times of people's postings.

We don't have to move our clocks forward Elsie because you appeared to have forgotten to remind us to put the clocks back for October '09! We've been living the wrong hour (but now the correct) for the past half year!

Com'on, woman - buck-up and don't forget to remind us all to put them back in October! We're relying on you!! :P :wink:
just...keep.........going...

Just a quick 'bump' in case people need to know how to adjust the time of their forum clocks...

I just noticed that I had the time set wrong on the forum since the site change.

I think that if you click on this link it will take you straight to the settings page. At the moment the clock needs to be set to utc. Check that British summer time isn't selected too :)

Hopefully that works, but please post if it doesn't.

Don't forget to put your forum clocks forward! :D 8) (you can use the link in escapee's post above this one, or go to 'User Control Panel' at the top of the page, underneath the ClinPsy logo (then > Board preferences).

Thanks for the bump; I actually forgot. =)

Also, you don't have to change your GMT setting at all anymore. I believe you can simply select [UTC] (GMT) and stick with it, right? Well. You have to activate/deactivate Summer Time whenever the clocks change but my point is, you don't have to change your time zone as such. That's what I had done until now anyway.

Now that Summer Time is gone, make sure that Summer Time/DST is not in effect. Next time the clocks change, you re-activate Summer Time/DST, and so on. =]
