Rick - the forum prior to the big change once had a GMT clock - time. I really miss that, and I am sure many that are not in the UK also do, any chance we can get that back?
So far as I know, that isn't something we can control from the forum settings. But my postings turn up with a time that is GMT, so presumably this is up to each person's settings somehow. Is that what you just found?

OK. So when I am logged in - the times displayed are AEST - (the time in Victoria which is thirty mins advance of me). Also the forum clock is AEST time.

When logged out it is GMT.

GMT is good, because it is a base time - all can relate to. Personally - even when I am logged in I'd prefer all time displays of posts to run off GMT - because it gets a bit messy after a shit load of beer and logging in and out! - but that's me!

One suggestion I'd like to make is to give two people the ability to a 'challenge' where the thread is created for a 1 on 1 only discussion. There could be a parallel thread for people, if they click 'quote' to discuss the challenge in a parallel thread.

This forum as far as I am aware is a PHP standard script - a few modifications could make it a serious debating platform.
