Forum Time

I like using the forum, it is simple to get around and there are lots of interesting posts.
I would like to know what timezone is the forum using? Does this relate to where it is operated?

Re: Forum Time

Haha, perhaps I should reword my post:
What timezone does the forum use? My posts display a different time to my phone.
Is the timezone set for a particular reason, for instance is this forum operated in a country that uses that timezone or is it for another reason, maybe there are more members using that timezone.

Re: Forum Time

Where do you see a time and if your phone displays a different time them maybe your phone has a different timezone set

Re: Forum Time

My phone's time is set to GMT, but the time next to my posts is always displayed +1hrs. It made me wonder if this forum is run in Europe or somewhere else and uses european time for another purpose, maybe european customers make up the majority of posts.

I don't see +1 and I'm in the UK

Re: Forum Time

I'll quickly post and see what time is displayed. It's not important, but since you see the correct time, I'd like to see what shows for me.

Re: Forum Time

Yeah, my post is an hour ahead of me.
Regarding my original question, where is the forum hosted? Also, where do most users come from?

Re: Forum Time

I don't think it is relevant for you where this forum is hosted. You can contact sony and see if you can get that information:

Regarding users,this forum is for worldwide support but only in English.

Re: Forum Time

I don't suppose its important for me to know, not knowing isn't gonna affect me using it, but its certainly relevent.
Firstly, its relevant to my curiosity, especially since I seem to be exclusively experiencing a post time bug. Secondly, where the forum is hosted affects how user data is stored, how it can be shared etc.
I understand if you'd prefer not to say for whatever reason, but you shouldn't simply dismiss my post as irrelevant.
