Current server time is: 24/10/2003 17:12 (GMT+1)
Choose your time offset in hours (..,-2,-1,0,1,2,..)

My location here is Singapore, and time here should be GMT+8. However, if I choose +7, the time would be wrong. It's 23:12 here. +7 would become 00:12. What is wrong here? Can someone enlighten me? Is there some daylight time savings feature in the place where this message board is hosted? crazy

This is confusing indeed, however the offset is based on the forum time (17:12), not on the current GMT time. Since the forum shows itself as GMT+1, you'd need GMT+8-1 (GMT+7). smile
