If your time zone has daylight savings time active (usually an hour) then you add one to the number of hours time difference.

For example, Melbourne, Australia (where I live) is usually +10 hours from UTC, however in summer when daylight savings is active it is +11 hours.

Many countries in the northern hemisphere observe DST, but not all. Daylight saving time begins in the northern hemisphere between March–April and ends between September–November. Standard time begins in the northern hemisphere between September–November and ends between March–April.

Changing daylight saving is a manual process on this forum. If you want to, edit your profile and add or subtract one from the time offset for your time zone.

The dates and times for posts above are shown in Universal Co-ordinated Time (UTC).

To show them in your local time you can join the forum, and then set the 'time correction' field in your profile to the number of hours difference between your location and UTC time.
