DST Change - First Half of 2017

PostAuthor: Gorgon » Sat Mar 11, 2017 2:19 pm

*Rehashes an old post*

Daylight Saving Time (DST) begins again for most North Americans this weekend, at 2 AM on Sunday, March 12th, as the clocks go forward an hour. When that happens, just change the "Summer Time/DST is in effect:" choice to "Yes", here in your Control Panel > Board Preferences. Don't switch your timezone on that page!

Other timezones (see the link below) will begin later this month (March 26th in the UK , for example). For the upside down people who do it the other way, and end DST around the end of March/beginning of April, just assume I'm dyslexic and set it to "No" whenever it changes for you.

You can verify it by checking the "It is currently ..." time on the main index page. All of the calendar stuff and other times will adjust accordingly, but recurring/future events need to be checked to see if you set them to account for the change.
I hate DST! :glaskugel:

If you want to change the "Timezone:" in your Control Panel > Profile, remember that it only for information purposes, and doesn't do anything. Set it it "Moon" or "Tardis" time if you want, or anything else. The forums don't use it for any time calculations. It is only extra profile/avatar info.

*Edits* I used to do these posts in random discussions, but the 30 day post eating monster makes it a pain to redo them 2 times a year. With this being mostly about the event calendar and other event related stuff, AGD works too (though I added a "First Half of 2017" thing to the topic title, to avoid any confusion with topic necromancy).

UK is the last Sunday in March. As I have said before, I hate DST :glaskugel:
Life is never as bad as you think it is, although that doesn't help at the time.
