Default Time Shown on Posting Messages & Elsewhere

Is there some reason that the time shown that a message was posted is some three hours and some minutes earlier than the actual correct time it was sent? This is also true when showing when a member last logged onto the website. For example the correct time that I am posting this inquiry is 4:50 P.M. (EDT) and originating from Southwestern Ohio. Has anyone else noticed this? I understand about the hour being different, but why the minutes? I assume any corrections to the time must be made by the administrator(s) of this website.

If you look at the very bottom center of the page, it says that all times are GMT (UTC). It also tells you what the time was at the moment that you opened the page.
Why the minutes are off, I don't know.

I'm posting this at precisely 17:25:13 EDT

EDIT: Timestamp shows 17:14 PM. I've noticed the posting time off about 11 minutes since I joined. Digs at my OCD

2:29pm Arizona Time when I started typing.
9:18pm GMT

Edit: Timestamp says 9:19pm GMT. So, about 10 minutes off, time zones notwithstanding.

Moved to the Forums forum as this has nothing to do with the database.

I'll let Lindsay know about the time.

You may need to set your timezone in your profile

I've set my timezone ( and I messed up on my post mixing military time 24hour and 12 hour :0 ). Post is ~11 minutes off.

I'll edit my post so both times are in the same format.

Looks like the time is off by 11 minutes even with the timezone set correctly.

Well, sure enough, I've found that the forums server is indeed having a clock problem.

Don't worry though, we're rolling out new forums software and servers soon. I'll have to wait for that to ultimately resolve the problem.

Stay tuned...
