I've just noticed that there is a time difference on the forum. It seems to be set to five hours earlier than GMT. I hadn't noticed this before. It told me I was posting at 06.25 am, but when I logged in it changed to 11.25am. Has it always done this?

I'm in the UK too and see the same, I imagine the site owner/admin is somewhere on the east of the US (new york etc) or Canada which is 5 hours behind us, then logging in will set time to your local preference

Since we moved from .co.uk to .org, it's an SEO tactic but yet we still have more visitors from the UK regardless...

Tommy's right, once you log in you'll be presented with your local time.
