Why does my timezone on the forums keep resetting itself back to its default? I have to set it back to my own timezone every 3-5 days or so. I'm fairly sure I had to set it yesterday too.

Also, I haven't found a way to change the timezone on the site, is there a way to do that or is it on the todo list or something?

The same problem with me...
Oops, update! Back to normal. I forgot Summer Time/DST is in effect ON. My timezone is actually UTC +3, I've changed it on User Control Panel > Board preferences > My timezone.
But as mentioned above it would be perfect to change timezone also on the site.

This keeps happening to me too, my timezone should stay set to UTC + 12 but it keeps changing itself back :scratch:

Yes, the same problem, can't set UTC +3 forever.

Yep, same for me too. I have noticed that my time zone here always resets itself back to the default whenever I update my profile on the main site (though I'm sure it does so more often than just then...). Yet strangely enough, my time zone does not change whenever I update my profile on the forum... it's only the main site.

I see no time zone setting in there, or do you just mean in general ie any updates?

I just found the bug.

If you update your forum profile page it resets the time zone in the archives settings.

I meant that when you update your profile on the main site, it resets your time zone on the forums.

NZ is now using DST and this is still an issue, editing your profile resets the time zone settings.

Is this happening to anyone else? :|
