Can someone explain to me how the posting time works since the new improved site was started. I understood how the old system working, but the new times don’t make sense to me. Ex: I posted a reply at 10:07 AM CST today and now it says 4:07 PM if I visit the site as a guest, but 10:07 after I log in.

Muhammad, no need to do so. I can work it out with a 6 hour difference. Just that many times I like to check on replies without logging in and the difference gets confusing for an old fart like me. Old site had a two hour offset which was easy, guess I’m going to have to learn something new. Thanks for replying.

Not a problem, just changed it to eastern time by default.

Now I have to retrain my brain again. Just kidding, thank you for taking the time to do this.
