Anyone else having this problem?  On our frontpage it identifies the time correctly per my zone, but has been changed by 4 hours on the calendar page (i.e. Event is at 9:00 PM EST on "upcoming events, but shows as 5:00PM on the Calendar).

Site is:

Mine are messed up also and I chose the correct time zone.  Now I can't even change my time zone under preferences.  Please fix this.

I've actually sent an e-mail on this subject about a month ago(no reply to date).  Ours is the exact opposite of Phewmite,  the Calendar times are correct and the main page times are 5 hours ahead.  I did notice this morning when I logged in it asked for my timezone in a popup.. I hope this means they are working on the issue, but an update or explanation would be nice.

**edit

I just posted on our forums.. and noticed the times of the recent posts are WAY off aswell..actually those times are 7 hours ahead.. odd.  Another wonderful example are these forums.. check the Header time in corrolation to the time of the edit.. something's just messed up

No actually at this point according to the service updates they merely indicated that you might need to adjust the times on your events because they may have been changed, which they were.  However, they DID NOT address the issues that even after adjusting those times on the calendar itself, the small "events box" is STILL displaying those times incorrectly.  Even if you delete the events and make them again, the times in the small events box compared to the actual calendar itself are completely off.

I know I configured nothing incorrectly on my end as when it asked me to choose my time setting when the site came back up, I chose pacific standard time, which is the time that our guilds realm runs on.  So, there is no reason those times should not be exactly as they are on the calendar.  Plus it's reading as the same offset times for all my other guild members, making it even more clear that it's an issue on their end. 

I'm going to personally address it to them as I see no service updates that indicates they are working on this issue.

has anyone heard any news on this yet?  this is messing all my guild members up and it's getting to a point where i won't have any choice but to go to another site if they can't get this fixed soon.  i don't want to delete the small events box so that their tech support can see exactly what's going on.  i have it at the bottom of the page, but i don't see why it's so difficult to correct an issue like that?  mine were working fine all the way up until the server crashed last week.

Alright, fix going live for this within the next half hour.  Pretty major issue, and downtime shouldn't be more than a minute.

Well, times appear correct, however if you're on the "event view" the small calendar on the top-right of the page has the wrong day highlighted.

For instance, if an event is scheduled for Friday evening, Saturday is highlighted on the small calendar.  It's really confused some folks.

Until it's fixed, I've been telling everyone to just trust the "big calendar" view.
