Time Zone

So I've got a suggestion… y'know how the the time and date for Scratch is set to the time at MIT? Well, my idea is that there can be a setting where you can set your time zone so you don't get confused. It'll make things easier for people who don't live in the same time zone. There isn't too much to explain, since it's on a lot of sites. I made a quick picture in MS Paint.

I think it automatically adjusts now based on your location.

If it doesn't, then support.

Really? I don't really pay attention to it too much.

Never mind. I guess I'll close this then.

Actually, I'm not exactly sure.

As said above, the time shown on the site adjusts to the time zone the computer/user is using, but I do support MasterJPixel's idea of showing the time zone of the poster as well.

You don't need to see my timezone and then eventually track me down.

There's an XKCD comic for everything.

You could turn it off in Account Settings.

I don't know how a time zone will help you get tracked down (assuming you're in the USA)

Agreed, but there should also be an option to disable this.

Yeah, this would be neat if there was a way to enable / disable it. c:

It doesn't for me. It appears that their time is three hours ahead of my time (by looking at my messages), so support.

Please read my signature! It might explain some lingo that I used in my post or comment. However, not all of it shows, so you have to highlight the entire bottom of the post, from “Please read my signature!” to where it says report, and copy and paste in into a new sheet or tab or whatever.
I can't decide my signature between:
1. I'm a grammar stickler, and my pet peeve is when people use good as an adverb.
2. I have lots of [creativity]original ideas[/creativity]. [creativity]This[/creativity] is one of those ideas.
3. If I used this symbol: ⸮ in my comment, please look it up before doing anything else.
4. {Minot, North Dakota/Donald Trump parodies} “WE'RE GONNA BUILD A DAM AND MAKE CANADA PAY FOR IT!” “When Canada sends its water, they’re not sending their best drinking water…They’re bringing sleet. They’re bringing floods. The water's toxic.” (It's just a joke that I came up with.)
5. One should make his/her signature text small; that way (s)he can cram more text into the signature.
6. New [scratchblocks] idea each week! (Thanks to Bright-Idea (Read her signature.) for inspiration/the general idea.) Here's the archive:
Note: I stopped this because of signature character limits.

It doesn't. I flew halfway around the world and I get the studio notifications in the morning.
