End of Summer Time - 26th October 2008

Do we need to manually change the time in our profile or has this been fixed in the new layout

at least M$S seems to be able to do it automatically, what with America on one date, Australia another and then us.
Other forums also have a problem

An early reminder to all that the clocks will go back tonight and as well as all getting an extra hour's sleep/rest you also need to adjust your Timezone in the forum profile.
From tomorrow morning we will be moving to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). So for our UK readers you will all need to change the timezone setting in your profile to GMT either before you go to bed or when you awake to ensure your posts and those of others display the correct time.
The setting can be found in your profile accessed from the link at the top of the forums above:

In your profile, scroll towards the bottom where you will find the the preferences section and change the Timezone from GMT to GMT+1. If you are not in the UK then you should ensure you are using the correct time offset (+ or -) as necessary.
Unfortunately this has to done manually by every user when the clocks change but it is a simple process. When we return to GMT later this year the process should be reversed.

I wonder how Webstats fared?  No shouts so far, so it must have been OK?
