Dunno of its just me but it seems like the Eastern Standard Time is wrong. Right now it's 8:06 pm but it's saying it's 7:06.

Do you have the Daylight Savings option checked?

User Control Panel ->Board Preferences->Summer Time/DST is in effect: Yes

if you look at the time in top left corner under the banner section, it's not the time as it is now it's showing, but the time you were last logged in..
Me it says yesterday at 14:56 and that confused me, but then I figured it was the 20th today and not the 19th :lol:

I think the time is only recorded according to the time set on the computer during the moment you were posting on and not necessarily the actual time from where you are should the computer's time be wrong or an hour behind/ahead. I log on the forum on different computers in the library of my school and all of them are a bit different by a few minutes.

I apologize for bumping up this old topic again but I have noticed that the North American Eastern Standard Time really is being shown one hour behind as opposed to when it was last posted once again. In the screenshot I have provided as an example, when you look at the time on the computer I posted a few minutes after making my most recent previous comment on another topic (see the bottom right), you can see that the time is lagging behind by 1 hour when shown on the left side.

I posted the comment at 1:30 pm eastern Canadian time but the comment says it was posted at 12:30 pm instead.

I'm in NJ (EST) and the time is accurate for me!

Well here in Canada it's an hour behind for me.
