Daylights Savings Time Ended (Update Your GMT Time Zone)

This is important to us because it can confuse game scheduling since some people's clocks have gone back an hour.

At 2am 11/7/2010 Daylights Saving Time ended in the USA. Now we are back on Standard Time which means that your GMT time zone has shifted by an hour.

For example: The pacific time zone was (GMT-7) before, but now that Daylight Saving Time is over, the Pacific Time Zone is (GMT-8).

Some areas of the United States do not ever change their clock by an hour between Daylight Saving Time/ Standard Time. So if you live in the below places, you don't have to do a thing.

"Daylight Saving Time, for the U.S. and its territories, is NOT observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the state of Arizona (not the Navajo Indian Reservation, which does observe). Navajo Nation participates in the Daylight Saving Time policy, due to its large size and location in three states" source

So this means you need to change the clocks in your signatures since your time has shifted by an hour.

Just go here: ... p=200#p200 and find your current time and add that clock into your signature.

Also, it is now a trillion times easier to add the clocks into your signature. You can just copy and paste the code for it now. Thank Favrenation for showing me how to set that up.

I also made is so when your clock shows up in your signature, it will tell you your GMT time zone to the right of the clock. So if you ever forget your GMT time zone when you are scheduling a game, just look at the clock in your signature and it will tell you.
