Why isn't the correct time displayed for my posts?

    I doublechecked and I do have the correct timezone listed -07MST for Arizona. All my posts display a time that's an hour later than the correct time. Right now, as I'm posting this, it is 12:48 a.m.

    How do I fix this and get the correct time to post?

    Well I guess that isn't true, since mine displays central time...

    At the top of the page click profile and then on the very next screen there is an option to change the time zone.

    Maybe it is a timezone that uses daylight savings time? I know Arizona does not.

    I know how to change the timezone. I've gone online to double check and the timezone I have on my profile page is the correct timezone for Arizona. That's right, Arizona does not have daylight savings, so our time never changes. Do you know what timezone I should punch in to get an accurate time listed on my posts?

    I donno... maybe one of our other AZ members has an idea? I don't see a "observes daylight savings time" option in the profile settings, so maybe the AZ members just select a differnet time zone 2 times a year?

    Great idea Nifty & azelgin - I hadn't thought to ask an AZ member.
    I switched to 08 PST - let's see if it works. It's now 11:30 a.m. as I post this.
