Default Edit time...

Not sure if you're already working on a fix for this or not.
I see quite a few posts where the original post was made... and the time
shows up accurately on my end... but then they edit the post. The time of
the edit is shown +5 hours, ie... next day, even if it was made within minutes.

Sounds like a timezone issue, I guess.
It just skews the timeline horribly, that's all.


Thanks.

Chris

Default RE: Edit time...

was not aware of this one...did you test it on your post above and it was fine? I think that is what your edit is saying?

Correct.
My edit showed the correct time. (As do others within my timezone - EST)
It appears that when someone from a different timezone than myself edits a post,
I see the "edited by so-n-so at XX:XX" time as being "my timezone +5 hours".

For example... [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/Test_flights_during_a_jet_meet%3F%3F/m_1632127/tm.htm]this post[/link]:

Was made at 9:57:07PM my time... and edited at 9:57:44 my time.
When I view that posting, it shows the 9:57:07PM creation, but the edit time
is shown as "Message edited by jetjock50 -- 3/17/2004 2:57:44 AM". (Which isn't here yet)


Just a heads-up. It's only mildly annoying, but a bug, nonetheless.

ok..I understand now. oddly enough the software should always skew the stamps to your timezone.

on a constructive note I just fixed that bug that shows the RE: RE: RE: thing. Should be gone in live threads and not appear anymore

That's what I thought... but it appears that when viewing an edited post made by
someone in another timezone, the edit time is shown as GMT instead of "user preference".


Cool on the second part. I know you all work like dogs on this stuff. Thanks
