Is the forum time, the time that can be seen on the top right of the page?
If that's it, the placement is all i know.

Go to "Profile", then "Look and layout preferences" Here you will see this. To see "Forum Time" in the top always, put in 0.

It is the local time in the time zone that the forum's server is set to. This forum is in UTC, but other forums on the Internet may be in different time zones.

Will pretend to do unspeakable things (while actually eating a taco) for bitcoins: 1K6d1EviQKX3SVKjPYmJGyWBb1avbmCFM4

UTC is not a timezone... Edit - https://www.timeanddate.com/time/aboututc.html

Default forum time is using Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) (London, UK) - google it. You can set forum time  to your local time in your Profile Setting > go to Look and Layout Preferences

In addition to the info. Once you enter the forum, the time is not in real time so you need to refresh the page in order to get the update once you stay long in that page.
UTC and GMT have the same time and you could use it both since the forum time follows it.

The forum time is at the right side of your screen and I think the forum time is on GMT ( https://time.is/GMT ) see same as on our forum.  You can set your time on profile settings and go to the look and layout preferences though , there where you can change your time according to your country.

Rubbish at predicting Bitcoin price movements.

"merit" is the forum timer. It's a secret hidden message for sig spammers. You will see that "merit" is an anagram of "timer", and it is a metric we use to check on a new member's ability to cut and paste text, and to master the complexities of Google translate.

If Bitcoin didn't exist, bankers would have to invent it.

Hey, that is a really good detail thanks. So in essence, it is London time and I can just think or it as the forum being in London. That´s good enough for me Smiley
