Matt- Something is definitely up with the time stamps on submitted items, including images. It started exactly with the transition. I fairly quickly changed my time zone, but haven't tested it by moving it around. Nor have I tested it in other ways, such as seeing if it affected the 'What's New'. Somethings affecting the submissions, not sure what else it could be.

OK, thanks for verifying mrchad9. I'll definitely look into it now.

Matt-

I just tested- please see my most recent two images. Submitted them 4 minutes apart, but changed the time zone in the forums in between...

They show 7 hours apart on the timestamps, and are about 70 images apart on the 'what's new' (the image submitted LAST is showing as being EARLIER on what's new).

The time displayed appears to be the local time selected in the forum, not Eastern Daylight Time as it was before.

There something really strange with the log-in going on.

I see a new message on my profile, log in to answer, get redirected to the forum, go back to my profile, see I'm online, which is correct, click on the message again - not logged in. It says sign in below the message. I re-log in, get directed to the forums etc...
This is only in IE.
Using Firefox, it's ok.

I clicked on sign-out now - not logged out, but redirected here again...

I'm not a fan of it, so I might change it to link to their profile page. However, the avatar does link to their profile page.


I find this a useless function. If the user has no avatar you cant get to his profile easily.

But thanx for your work!!!

You actually can by simply clicking on their name in the post under the post title, right after "by" and before the date.

But I've been meaning to change the username to link to their profile instead of it's current function.

UPDATE: I just made the change. The username under the avatar now links to the user's profile.

I believe that I fixed this today. If you wouldn't mind performing the same test and letting me know the results, that would be great.

My tests seem to work now. Everything gets stamped with Eastern Daylight Time I believe.

Everything is fixed Matt. Pics, votes, everything show with EDT. When I submit a photo, there are still a few from others that remain ahead of it in the 'What's New', from clever folks who changed their time zone to one that keeps it atop the page as long as possible, and had submitted today before your fix went in. From here going forward this doesn't happen though.

Thank you sir!

:lol: So maybe that's what happened last week. I posted a page, and a little later I noticed that a page posted earlier in the day had moved back to the top of the list. My assumption was that the person had deleted and then reposted his page. But maybe he was playing games with the times instead. Either way, that's pretty pathetic.

Right Bob! It was the time zones. Was chugach mtn boy that alerted us it affected the 'What's New'. And I was able to see the impact of the time zone players today (the same photos have been there all day). I also confirmed that they knew what they were doing... at least some of them weren't in time zones such that their own location would have caused it- rather it would have hurt them had they used their own time zone.

But the ability is now gone.

Oh well, back to the same old same old. It was so exotic being in the Casablanca time zone ....

Actually I didn't look closely. But to be fair the ones I saw weren't POTD members though. Perhaps they didn't even know about this, since most don't come into the forums.
