    GMT ZULU Time

    It occurred to me just now, perhaps an International Forum should run on GMT, aka ZULU time.

    Today I got 2 notifications of new product pertaining to our interest.

    The New Product is a KS from 2 people, glass plate DDS.

    Nodda Duma says watch for a early bird KS at 12 PM Eastern and Chroma Camera says 1600 hrs.

    Both are the same moment.

    I don't know what mods think, but this gets confusing.

    This is very good news regardless.

    You can customize your time zone display from the menu bar at the top: Forum -> Forum Actions -> General Settings, scroll down to "Date & Time Options".

    We're not going to enforce a specific time zone usage on everyone - we want to limit our rules to those that are essential to the smooth running of the Forum. But certainly, when you have some time-specific information to post, the courteous thing to do is to be explicit about what time zone you're referring to. I think most people are already careful about that.

    I know that, but posters are using local time.

    My idea is change all LFPF to GMT.

    Understood. But see the rest of my last post, which I added while you were in the process of posting your reply.

    I got a message from Steve at Chroma camera's, his quoted time was 1600 Friday, I take that as being his local time in England??

    There's already a thread for the Kansas dentists event, so head on down there and I'm sure Jason will be happy to sort out the timing:

    I don't like going to the dentist whatever time it is!

    I have my dentist phone number programmed into my phone so that when they call me for an appointment I know not to answer it.
