"See Server Time" Button in the Forums

Hello, everyone!

It's me, Nammy, and I have a suggestion today. There should be a button next to “New topic” in the forums saying “Show server time”. This would show the current server time, because currently if you bump you are unsure if exactly 24 hours have passed or not in the Scratch timezone. So this button would go to a website that shows the current server time. This would be a way easier way of doing things. Please let me know your thoughts and ideas for improvement.

Bye,
~Nammy~

To be honest, I don't think anyone's going to yell at you if you bump a topic after only 23.5 hours have passed.

The “24 hour bump rule” is mainly in place so people don't bump their topic every hour.

Some people sleep fifteen hours and the next day is Saturday.

Can't you just convert your time zone to the server's time?
For example, where I am it's 15:24. That means where I am is 6 hours ahead to the server time. So if I want to post in 24 hours, I can just see what time I posted it, add 6 hours and that's the time I should do it.

Support. This is a problematic uncertainty. My local time is 16:13, but that can't be directly compared with the MIT time.

Scratch is a kids website and a lot of people don't even know how to do that maths.

No Support. Nobody's gonna look for bumps that are 19 hours after the last post and yell at the topic owners. As Za-Chary said, the 24-hour bumping rule was only made to stop people bumping their topic 10 times a day. You also can just set the location to “United States.” That's where the Scratch Team works.

I got the idea from someone.
63.1% of statistics have an extra decimal point.
12-88% of statistics are really imprecise.
25% (1/2) of statistics have obvious miscalculations.
0.61% of statistics are made-up.
23 of statistics are missing the percent symbol.
XXIX% of statistics are confusing.

Setting your location on your user profile to a country doesn't set it to the timezone of that country. I know this because otherwise the times would be off by a few hours for me even though the forum times use my current time zone.

Speaking of which, can't you just check the date of the last post and see whether or not that post was made >24 hours ago regardless of the timezone you have set?

Yes and give me it relative to UTC because I am British and UTC+0 is nice.
