Re: What time is it at the forum?

the reason why a time isn't specified is what time zone would you use?
Even if time was shown on the homepage in your timezone, it's unlikely to be the same timezone as the auction. m i missing something?
For me, then its easy to + or - from the forum time based on first bid, last bid etc. With time for posts in "sellers" time you just have to do you math I guess. Just hoping it was easier than that. If forum is on GMT then, can posts be synchronized to that then its easy to figure out when auctions end. I am not the only one who has missed rebids etc. I can deal with it as is, just seems there is an easier way.

You don't have to change anything, there are some post of auctions that end "24 hours after first bid", or even a few that were "24 hours after post" which can lead to an EBAY bid slam in the final 60 seconds.
