I had timezone for Moscow and it is outdated - it still thinks it is +4 hours while since 26th October it is +3 hours (without DST).

For some reason in your profile you had the “Automatically Detect DST
changes” unselected (ON is the forum default). I don’t know how that
happened, but I switched it back on in your profile so you should see
the correct time now.
В вашей установки профиля, вы имели “Автоматическое обнаружение DST
изменяет” не выбран (ВКЛ форум по умолчанию). Я не знаю, как это
случилось, но я включил его обратно в вашем профиле, чтобы вы увидите
правильное время теперь.

Just checked my DST setting and found it set to “Always Off” as I expected. I don’t recall ever changing it. Could it just be a very old default?
My time zone is currently out of DST, but I was aware of the time lag during DST months here. I have now changed to “Automatically Detect”, plus logout/in was needed to activate.
>Could it just be a very old
Possibly. I don’t remember ever having set it that way but it could

Nevermind. I understand it now. We don’t use vBulletin for
registration so the defaults don’t matter. We use Access Manager (much
more secure) but it seems it doesn’t deal with DST detection.
Apparently you must go to your SETTINGS and then MY ACCOUNT / GENERAL
SETTINGS (on the left) and set it after you’ve created your account.

I just ran an SQL query to set everyone’s DST detection setting to
automatic. I’ll set up a job to do that regularly.

Referring to your designation as “Guy walking behind the parade with the shovel”:
… and doing a danged fine job of it!
Huh? Russia does not have DST time change since 3 years. What are you talking about?
/etc/localtime Sat Oct 30 23:00:00 2010 UT = Sun Oct 31 02:00:00 2010 MSK isdst=0 gmtoff=10800 /etc/localtime Sat Mar 26 22:59:59 2011 UT = Sun Mar 27 01:59:59 2011 MSK isdst=0 gmtoff=10800 /etc/localtime Sat Mar 26 23:00:00 2011 UT = Sun Mar 27 03:00:00 2011 MSK isdst=0 gmtoff=14400 /etc/localtime Sat Oct 25 21:59:59 2014 UT = Sun Oct 26 01:59:59 2014 MSK isdst=0 gmtoff=14400 /etc/localtime Sat Oct 25 22:00:00 2014 UT = Sun Oct 26 01:00:00 2014 MSK isdst=0 gmtoff=10800
Please fix time zone definition in your forum server instead.
Thanks for previous technical explanation, and for making sure we generally get the best possible set-up at the user interface.
Hey Fraser Bell:

Thanks. I can shovel it with the best of 'em!

It’s defined in the software we use. Hopefully if it’s wrong, it will
be fixed in the next software update we receive.

In the meantime, you can turn DST off in your profile if you choose.
Kim - 12/3/2014 9:27:09 AM
You seem to hopelessly misunderstand … DST was off already and it was not a problem (unless someone sets up automatic job to “correct” it behind my back). The problem is, that GMT offset of timezone is changed and is now wrong.
Hopefully the next update will corret any timezone that was wrong in
the software. As I said, you can change it in your settings.
