This is... odd. The clock on the RPoL homepage displays the correct time, but my posts all have a timestamp one hour ahead of that as if stuck on permanent summertime. I've tried logging out and back in. (Windows 11, running Edge, GMT+0)

I have the same issue. I think it may have started when clocks changed from summer to wintertime.

I checked to see if I had the same issue, but it is working properly for me.

Try changing your time zone, saving, and then changing it back?

EDIT: I mean on your computer.  I am pretty sure the website takes the current time from your computer.

Trying changing the timezone and back again... posting at 0920 GMT+0

Edit: And the posting time is displayed as 1020 GMT+0. Weird.

Is your computer set to daylight savings time?  That might be the issue.

You might also have a corrupt cookie that's still tracking the time as prior to the DST/Standard time change.  Those come along every so often and can do anything from giving you a screen full of unread message indicators to screwing up time and date information and a few other things.

I'd offer a course of action, but while I remember bad cookies being a relatively common issue (at least, several years ago they were, I haven't heard much about them lately), I'm computer-illiterate enough that I don't recall how to get rid of them...I think you log out, clear your cache, delete cookies, and then log back in?
