Hi Immy.  I am not sure who you are directing your question to. I am guessing it is our @U2 administrator, m2. Both he and a number of the @U2 staff are on the West coast USA. The time on the forum is West coast Eastern Daylight Time (for spring & summer).  I am East coast USA. You are  either 5 or 6 hours ahead of me so that makes you 8 or 9 hours ahead of(later than) m2's time. I hope I did not confuse you any further! Don't feel stupid about asking that. I am quite sure many people have been confused over all these time zones!!

You can change this to match your location. Click on PROFILE at the top, then in the left column click on "Look and Layout Preferences." The 2nd or 3rd thing down should say something like "Time Offset" which will let you tell the forum how many hours different you are. I think there's even an auto-detect thing you can click for help.

Use this so that the forum shows your local time, not ours.
