Did someone change the time from GMT to EST without telling me???

Just wondering what's up with the time thing. My screen shows me to be behind by 5 hours. The home page says 2:30 and it's actually 7:30 here ( central time ). Just wondering .

Thanks guys, I just noticed that, but I just got on too. You have to move your clock up 5 hours now to be right. If it was set at -6 for central, change it to -1.

I just changed mine. I'm in the Eastern time zone, therefore my time is set at "0".

just updated the database so everyone with offset of -5 or smaller (i.e. -6, -7...) was increased of 5. This should make it for most people.

If you still have a problem, just check the difference between the real time where you are and the time it shows and add it to your time offset (i.e. it is 12 and it shows 11, then add 1 to your offset in your profile).
