OK people, it's time to alter your forum settings so that all the times on posts show in BST.

To do this you need to click on your username (with the the drop down arrow next to it) in the top right of the forum main page, and choose User Control Panel. Click on the Board Preferences tab, and in the drop down box underneath the "board style" box choose the option "UTC+01.00 27 Mar 2016, [time]".

When you do this the box below it will change to show "Africa/Algiers", but that's fine because that's what it should do. You can now click Submit, and when you go back to the front page of the forum the time should be displaying correctly in the top-left of the screen.

You may notice a button next to the drop down box that says, "Suggestion: UTC+01.00" when you first open the Board Preferences tab. If you click that it will change the time zone for you more quickly. You still have to click Submit though.

This means there may be a mistake in the recently-posted Tumbleweed Scores!

Shouldn't be, as everyone changed it, as did the post beforehand.

Don't forget, people - if your forum time is still showing GMT (an hour slow) then you have to manually change your user settings so it shows BST.

You can do this by clicking on your username in the top-right corner of the screen, choosing User Control Panel -> Board Preferences, and then using the drop-down box to choose UTC +01:00.

I'll make another announcement in October, reminding you all to set it back to GMT.
