I think this probably isn't the right place to make this suggestion; it should be to the programmers of the forum software. But it occurred to me that it would be nice to have a field on the page somewhere showing the current time. The reason is, like many others, I live in a different time zone, and so when it says that a post was made at "3 am" I have no idea when that really was. So it would be good to have a display somewhere of the current local time for the board.

Or is there one already? Well, yes, there is. I just found it at the very bottom. So maybe I should say, it would be nice to have it more prominently displayed.

The board shows the posting time of all posts in your timezone, provided you set it correctly in: settings, my settings, my account, general settings (http://www.bautforum.com/profile.php?do=editoptions): Date & Time Options (near the bottom of that page). Or do I misunderstand what you want?

No, you only misunderestimated the depth of my lack of software savvy. :) That's a perfect solution to the problem.
