In order to view the correct time in the Hullabaloo for your time zone / part of the world, you will have to set the time properly in your User Profile (which you can access by click the word Profile at the top of the board). Also, don't forget when Daylight Savings Time goes into effect, you'll then need to change the time setting in your profile to reflect that. =)

Now, if you are unsure as to what your local area time is in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), then you can check out the following URL. Once you click this, you'll arrive at a page with listings for all countries. Just click the link for your county and the information on the page that comes up should help you figure out what your local GMT is.

Once you find out what your local time is in GMT, come back and adjust your profile time setting according to what the chart says and you'll be "good to go". After you make your time setting adjustment, don't forget to click the Submit button at the bottom of the page so your changes take effect. =D

Hope This Helps! =)

If by some chance this does NOT help, just let me know. =)

Glad you got it. I usually have to blunder around in there a while, so I didn't want to attempt to help.

I'm used to setting Time Zones (I'm a member of waaaaaay to many game meesage boards) & have just memorized that I am pretty much always at GMT -7 or -8 hours, depending on wether DST is in effect or not.

It's about the only thing I can do reliably in my Profile setting without any help! cheers

(Though I did finally manage to add an Avatar without bugging anybody here.....)
