    Default Confused

    Hello,
    I am confused.
    The recent "Unacounted Airmen" threads that I started seem to have been answered before they have been posted by me on the forum.
    How is this possible ?

    For example :
    450309 posted by me on 18th at 01.35.
    Answered by ALClark on 18th at 0135.
    and
    450311 posted by me on 18th at 0138.
    Answered by ALClark on 18th at 0137.

    As I said, I am confused as to how this can happen.

    its a known problem, a little gremlin. It was discussed months ago on the forum but I can't find where. Needn't worry, tho its does look a bit daft.

    I cant figure it out either as to why a reply gets bumped up before the original post.. doesnt happen all the time.. I will try and investigate.

    Could it have anything to do with time zones between the location of the server and its timing parameters and the time zone in which the 'poster' is located?

    The important thing is that this site is an absolute gold mine, for which I am ever grateful.

    Last time I checked Stockport and Cornwall were both in the same time zone. I'm also at a loss as to how the software could get so confused. Normally it should work by taking the time of the post from the server in the local time at the server (unless you have told it to use a different timezone) by use of a date() command as a result of you clicking on post and entering that information into a field in the appropriate database table.

    The only thing I could find was in the case of the first thread, Alan's post got a timestamp that was 6 seconds ahead of Alex's Starting post and in the second case it was almost 85 seconds before Alex's starting post. Why the software would put in an earlier timestamp on a later post is beyond me - The host's server might be playing tricks too..
