Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on January 20, 2024, 02:16:52 AMThanks but updating location doesn't do anything, where do you choose the timezone?  Just wonder why it doesn't sync. to my PC time

Because browsers don't give up that personal info to sites.  The only way some sites achieve this is via geolocation, which can be imperfect.

The TZ option is in there somewhere... keep looking.  We're -6:00 central.  Maybe this new version auto-handles the DST cutovers (yay!).  Looks like the new site didn't migrate my old TZ setting, so everyone will have to adjust theirs.

However, mods could make this easier by setting the site-wide default to the correct TZ... unless they already have and something with the conversion made it guess my old one wrong.

It is important to mention that the league and the Blue Bombers helped immensely with the upgrade. 

Personally, I am grateful to them and to our members here who have stuck with us through the difficult software times. It has been suggested that we are sometimes over-moderated and behind the times but the goal has been and always will be, to provide a safe place where young and old fans can participate about a team I fully believe we all love.

I'm most impressed at the fact post-upgrade mostly everything was retained from the old version.  Often times when you fall behind 800 versions they don't provide an upgrade path and you lose all the posts / accounts / etc.  So some credit to Simple Machines too, whoever they are!  And the admins who did the upgrade.

There is an issue warning button, that'll come in handy 😂😂😂

Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on January 19, 2024, 09:14:55 PMI always wondered about the clock connected to this site, there doesn't seem to be any way for me to adjust it.  It never shows the correct time, or the correct time posts are made, regardless of time zone.  For example, this post is marked at 09:06:26 PM when it's actually 14:10 pm in BC.

Testing to see if this works

Okay it works
