What's the reference point for time and date stamp on posts?

2 posts in this topic

When I see a post on a forum e.g. Galarno has a post on Wheel Bearing Repacking dated 01/30/08 6:09 PM, whose time zone is that? I am reading it from Rochester MN, Central Standard Time but he could have been writing it from Taiwan, 14 hours time difference. See what I mean? This has some practical meaning e.g. for fishing reports when you might want to know if "today" means today or yesterday for the reader. I could not find answer to this on FAQ nor could I find a web master type so thought the Expert Information forum might yield an answer

Post times reflect the Central time zone. We have a poster from Oregon and his come thru with the CST time, not the 2 hour earlier time he is posting from in the Pacific time zone.

Hope that answers your question.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
