What time zone does Answers use?

The times shown on Answers don't mean anything to me - 'a minute ago' or 'an hour ago' is fine but when it reverts to showing an actual time I can't tell if it was 2 or 10 hours ago!

So what is the time offset from GMT?

Thanks! (Posted 15:53 local time)

You're comment has come up in EDThttp://www.timeanddate.com/library/abbreviations/timezones/na/edt.html

Time zone offset: UTC - 4 hours


Looks right to me :)

(Posted 15:53 local time) - that would make you GMT+1 (BST perhaps?) ;-)

Indeed! Now I know to add 5 hours (for now at least...)

Looks like this is answered, but it seems like there's a feature request here too - perhaps the equivalent of the (now infamous) JRA-9? (by the way, JRA-9 made it into "Summit Nights", a must-see).

I've added a feature request for user timezones. It'll actually be a lot less complex than JIRA - hopefully it won't take 8 years!

That would be handy. At least if the current Answers time could be displayed say at the top of the screen then users could figure out the relative time.
