Use a timezone map and factor in daylight saving. It's not that hard.

Though it might be beneficial in a way to see at what time a user is reporting from. Say Gantic is posting from California. To me, that's -3 in hours. So at 12:00 Noon, Gantic will post, his time being 9:00. There could be a fixture showing his time, and under that, your time that he posted.

Certain times may indicate whether a user will leave or come on, if you know the schedule, like going to bed or going to school.

it'd be easy enough to do if we store everything in "california time" and adjust it for each user if they select a time zone.

I'd like that. It could be in a post that first shows California time (which would be universal to AG'ers if added), and under it showing their timezone when they posted. It could make a nice forum game as well when pulled off, but that's not that important :-)

This would make a great addition to users gaving trouble with the different time zones all over the world! I'm all for it! =D

Is this difficult to implement then? :/

Yeah we'd probably show everything in California time, unless you set a time zone in your profile.

Right now, everything gets set according to our server's time, which are hosted somewhere in the Eastern time zone, so everything's off by 3 hours for us here in California.

Not busy with opening the doors yet? People are pounding them in anxiety to get in... :P

Everyone needs lunch even those highway workers who my grandpa always seems to drive by and they are looking at a hole all together and then he says "I'm paying them to do this?"
