Fall/Spring Daylight Savings changes

Post by icvanstra » Sun Nov 06, 2011 5:41 pm

The first weekend in November officially marks the 'fall back' from Daylight Savings Time for most time zones. This is something that must be done manually on the forum, but is a simple task.

Select the User Control Panel in the upper left corner, beneath the banner.
Select the Board Preferences tab

Verify your Time Zone is correct and change if necessary
Select 'No' on the "Summer Time/DST is in effect"
Click the Submit button.

Come spring just do the same thing but change the DST setting to "yes."

Reminder about changing your time in the control panel.


...

Note: The board will always be at GMT/UTC -05:00 - This is Eastern Standard Time. This makes it easier since we have members from all around the world that do and do not observe Daylight Savings time. Let alone start and stop observing on different dates.
