When i clicked auto-detect it jumped from -3, which it was at previously, to -9.
Edit: and it's still 6 hours off..
Edit2: changing the time offset in forum preferences didn't change the time offset on the forums. Quick test, does this post say 5:09 pm 17:09 for other people not in PST?

It appears Netham45 has fixed it. However the posts from the downtime until now will probably need to be fixed.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Actually now I realised that my today/yesterday things are stuffed up now!
Maybe I didn't notice before or that Netham 'fixing' made mine look wrong...


EDIT: darl181 I think the 5 min offset was changed a while ago.
However now my time offset does not match the time on OmnomIRC anymore.
It would work so much better if the forum time offset matched GMT/UTC time. -5 would indicate GMT-5

Well it looks like the 6 hours that were changed before have been changed back so now that UTC+10 has a FTO of 14 instead of 8.
And the Omnom Times have been fixed up too!!!

The weird times above are because at one point Netham fixed forum time, but he didn't fix the messed up time of those threads. As a result, those thread are placed weirdly since they have lower last post IDs. As for forum time offset it works fine for me. I think it's an issue on your end.

W8 so it works completely on your end? So a GMT/UTC-5 would equal -5 in FTO?
For me a +10 equals 14 FTO but otherwise it works fine.

Nah I mean for example it's 1:52 AM on my computer right now, and the forum time is not off (except by 2 minutes but that doesn't matter). Server default time is GMT-5 by the way and forum time offset based on that is 0. After the downtime the server time became GMT+1 so since the forum offset was not changed, it caused new posts to be posted 6 hours ahead, while everything else was not.

Not sure why you have time disparity on your side.

W8 I'm not sure you get what I'm saying, but it doesn't really matter. The timestamps are perfectly fine I think, except for the 2 minutes you mentioned of course.

Well looks like it's changed back again!
The Omnom times are correct but when I checked forum timestamps it was wrong. Went to profile and autodetect and what was 14 turned to 8 which means that the 6 hour discrepancy is there again!

From another topic which bounced on this related topic:
Yay!

Question, though: Will the server now be permanently set on GMT+1? Because it used to be GMT-5 and since April 14th or so, all new posts have been offset by 6 hours compared to the old ones (kinda like on barrett server one day)
Hmm I didn't realise that the 6 hour discrepancy would mean GMT+1. All I thought was that it was the completely wrong time off by 6 hours :P

Just found another implication of the 6 hour offset.
I think the Time of Day statistics have shifted 6 hours so they are not accurate anymore.

Yep that sounds right, cuz usually at around 4PM (GMT+10) it would reset and the daily posts numbers would go down. But at this time the posts numbers are still low as they should be resetting at around 8AM (GMT+10) for me now.
