I was just wondering if their is any way of changing the time zone on Armor Games. It's annoying looking at when something was posted, then seeing that it was in the future.

What time zone is AG in anyway?

Nope, not at the moment. Possibly in the future, but I can't speak for AG.

AG time is in Eastern Standard Time (GMT-5).

That's something I never noticed untill now... Forum time is set at GMT -5, but the ArmorGames office is located in the GMT-8 time zone. Hmmm... funny. =)

Convenience. Most people in USA are used to knowing what Pacific time is (GMT-5)..for TV shows and all it is usually given the time of PST(GMT-5)/*insert whatever time zone person is in other than Pacific*

I think the majority demographic was made up of the eastern coast. It was probably set to that to please the majority that come.

I've added it to our community suggestion list. But for now, nothing can be done.
