    That makes sense. The personalization is tied to user-entered location data; the Forum software does not perform or react to any visitor IP address lookups.

    So, the p13n (personalization) does not occur until you log in. The web apps I architected supported both p13n and i18n (internationalization) depending on user profile. We were a global company, so we allowed the users to specify their preferred language, currency as well as other local and personal preferences.

    The server is set to GMT.

    The browsers adjust, if they're allowed to do so. Most desktop computer browsers do so automatically. Some phone browsers (notably Safari) do not.

    ^^^This. The time shown is relative to where you are, rovided the time zone in your Profile is set correctly.

    That can't be. GMT would make it the time in England. That's what we used to use in the Navy for setting our crypto gear.

    Interesting, the time correctly shows 4:50 p.m. GMT on my phone. Using both Chrome and internet explorer on a computer, the time is showing 8:50 a.m.

    Never mind: the next time I looked at the Forum, the time of posting had been updated to the "correct" time, 10:48 EDT.

    What time zone is the Forum in?

    I've always been confused by posts that seem to be done in the middle of the night. This morning, I made a post at about 10:48 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. What showed up on my post was a time of 6:48 a.m. I think that is the Alaska time zone - and also one French Polynesian island. Why is the time of posts set this way?
