Time Gentlemen Please!

Hello Roy. I refer you to Roger's succinct explanation from another thread:

If you go into your profile at the top of any page, scroll down to timezone and alter it to GMT + 1 hour you find that will put the time right.

I still can't understand that one... we are in the GMT zone after all, not the GMT+1 zone.

I think the server hasn't adjusted itself for BST.


Active Member
Isn't the server in Germany though? I remember when the site was down once, the message it displayed was in German.

Might have something to do with the difference :?: but not the GMT+1 business!!! :roll:

Personally I think the clock should be kept to GMT as not everybody on the site resides in the UK, so switching to BST at appropriate times seems a bit parochial.


Active Member
Who Cares??!!!!!
personally i believe the clocks should be kept back
this means more ttime in bed and in the pub but late for work and we can blame it on tMP!!


Active Member
ha i was just thinkin that and gettin very confused!!! im glad i just found this or who knows how confused would i get?!?!?

The problem here folks is, I believe, down to the fact that whilst the tMP Master Clock is set at GMT, the actual server/machine where all tMP threads are located is in Germany which is +1h... but if I set tMP Master Clock at GMT-1, all other times would be out.

Easiest way is as described, simply set your profile time to GMT-1 and all should be OK...
