Ah, sorry, I didn't notice the "Cloud" tag, sorry.
I'm not familiar enough with Cloud to know where the location is set byb default. I've seen Cloud use localised dates, so I know it is possible. I'd check the user profiles and defaults to see if you can tell it where you are, so it will use local date/time
Please check the system time and system date displayed on the page at Confluence Admin>System Administration and see if the edit times on pages are consistent with the time and date there.
Confluence server pulls the time zone from the operating system; it can be overridden by passing -Duser.timezone=<YourTimeZone> to the jvm arguments as described here: Configuring System Properties.
Shawn it may be a good idea to reach out to your Confluence sysadmin because if you do need to change the time zone in the java options the instance will have to be restarted.
Just to verify, the System Information page is at <Confluence_Base_URL>admin/systeminfo.action.
Further research revealed that the expected behavior is, according to this ancient bug's comment:
"The user's time zone preference is used for all edit and creation timestamps, in email notifications and RSS, and pretty much everywhere the user sees a date in Confluence.
The server time zone is used for anonymous users, if the user has no preference set, and also for a few dates that must be consistent for all users – news item publish dates, dates in XML exports, the build date, and a couple of other minor cases."
So if the timestamps on your edits is inconsistent with what you have set in your profile, Confluence is misbehaving. Please do reach out to your local admin first, they can open a ticket with Support and include logs if they cannot resolve it on their own.
