At the bottom of the forum page it says all times are GMT. Before the new forum, times used to be Pacific time in the US. It could be that all features are not set at the same time yet. It will need reporting to the tech team on the new feedback forum. http://www.trekearth.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=16

I think this is one of the fall backs of this new forum which is, from a technical point of view, a whole new piece of software which has been added to the existing TE. The new forum is "intelligent" enough to take time zones into account and display the local time for each user, whereas TE remains unchanged and displays posting time using US Pacific time... which is where the servers are installed.

Check your profile to ensure you have the correct country set. That may be affecting the time stamp.

It didn't, for me. I changed from Portugal (GMT) to Cape Verde (GMT - 1) and the time shown here (in the forum) is the same. As Kath said, "At the bottom of the forum page it says all times are GMT".
At the TE pages (other than forum) the time is yet the US Pacific Standard Time (PST), i.e. GMT - 8.
A nice site about time, calendars, etc: www.timeanddate.com.

I'm sorry, Didi, but I can not set a local hour. As it is written down in each page of the forum:
All times are GMT +0. The time now is ...

Lightbulb User Control Panel

Edit options
Date & Time Options

Time ZoneAll timestamps displayed on the forums can be automatically corrected to show the correct time for your location in the world. Simply select the appropriate time zone from the list below.

I made my choice to
(GMT +1:00 hour) Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris

It's similar to my computer time.

This is only visible in the forum not in TE pictures pages
