That sounds weird. If the problem would be one hour, two hours or anything like that it might be like Alkanoonion suggested. But 52 minutes is odd. Although I checked mine and it was two minutes off... So maybe 8 minutes off and the daylight savings not clicked?

But how to mend that?

Until about 5 minutes ago, my clock was off by 32 minutes. Now it's off by 3 minutes. I'd never had that problem until today and haven't changed any settings. Very strange.

Thinlómien you are not the only one. I too am having "time trouble", it was like that lst night with me, and the early morning of today. Though I must say I was quite enjoying being 52 minutes younger!

Now it seems to be 19 minutes off the track.

So there is something wrong there, moving forwards and backwards, definitively...

Can something be done to it?

The clock here is off by roughly 20 minutes....I thought it was my computer clock that was wrong and there was no rush to get ready for work. Then I checked my cell phone and I realized there was a rush!

Ah, I thought there was something strange going on last night when I checked Who's Online and noticed no member had been active for the last half hour. The BD clock reads 4:49pm, when in fact it is 5:12.

The times they are a-changin'...

Mine is now off by 22 minutes. There's something wrong in the fabric of the space-time continuum, I tell you!

*clicks refresh to see how far off the clock is now*

Now that you mention it... the clock here seems to be 52 minutes off the mark. I wouldn't mention it, but someone else had had the same difference, so it's quite interesting. Perhaps the "main" clock, from where the BD calculates the time for the time-stamps is having some problems? I'm guessing that'd have nothing to do with the 'downs itself but rather some Internet glitch.

Edit: As I posted this, the difference between the actual time and the BD clock was reduced to 10 minutes. Odd, huh?

Probably the server where the forum resides has a problem with its clock. I'll send tech support a note if the problem persists.

*EDIT* Shows as 15 minutes early for me. Weird.

Just want to see if it's happening with me...

EDIT Yep, 16 minutes slow. That really is weird. Why would the clock be out of calibration by a different amount for different people?? If there's something screwy with the server then it would apply uniformly, would it not?

I'm not sure it is. It seems like the difference is just changing all the time. For me the clock is 45 minutes too early right now and the last time I looked yesterday it was 23.

The world is steering into chaos!

Perhaps the problem has been fixed. The clock is only off one minute for me now...

EDIT: Wait a minute...now it's just right on. (Pun not intended)

Well, I suppose my post from last night should be cancelled out...while it was working before, it is now 42 minutes slow again. *sigh* I should really stop worrying about this...it's not like I use computer clocks anyways...

I am very confused right now. The BD clock is exactly an hour behind the actual time. I thought perhaps my settings were off, but I checked and I'm set to the correct time zone.

I suppose this is just a continuence of the messed up clock? But strange that it is precisely an hour off...

The clock is showing the correct time for me!

edit: or two minutes too early, but the fault might be with this school computer's clock

Question The time is out of joint!

I think the calendar is broken. It seems to show December 2006, but not January 2007. Just thought I'd bring it to your attention because, well, we all need to know when Birthdays are coming up.

Question

I don't think this is the right place to post this, but I don't know what is, so I'll just ask this here.

Where have Esty and Child's personal titles gone? Why are they Ghost Princes of Cardolan? Is this some kind of error, or deliberate?

While Today's Birthdays seems to be working fine, the calendar is stuck on year 2007. Just if you mods weren't aware of this problem.

Has anyone else had trouble arranging their signature? I haven't been able get to three lines, although I know that I haven't gone over the character limit or line length. I wonder if the empty spaces left over from copying and pasting are collecting and clogging? Though I do try to clean those out every time.

I think it counts links into the character limit, so it fills up quite quickly, if you have lots of them.

Yes, I had similar problem. Don't you use the tags like "right" or "center" often? They count as a new line always. But yes, definitely there are certain moments when the program counts the lines as more than they actually are. To be precise: it happened to me while posting this:

text A[TAG RIGHT]text B
text C[END TAG RIGHT]

Now the tag "right" in itself creates a new line and the program rightly counts it. All the texts (A, B, C) are shorter than one line, I checked it and 100% there is no problem in it. It should look like this:

text A
text B (in the right corner)
text C (in the right corner)

However, it says that it is more than three lines. But when I do for example this:

text A
text B
[TAG RIGHT]text C[END TAG RIGHT]

therefore, a thing that looks like

text A
text B
text C (in the right corner)

it does not write any alert message to me. It seems illogical.

I'm having the same problems with my siggy. I'm trying to create a new one; it's only three lines (no tags or anything), but I still get a notice that it's more. I think it's because in the text box where you type the signature it is four lines, but that's just silly because the text box is much smaller and it would only be three lines on the forum...

Oh, you think it really is that silly? I thought it counts characters (it indeed does) and it knows how many characters make a line, and it does not depend on how big the textbox is. After all, the size of the window may be different... ???

Well, I didn't really think I had that many characters in my signature...showing up on the forum, each line is fairly short in length.

But I did manage to figure it out. I had to merge the last two lines into one line, then align left the last line so that it would appear as three separate lines. Very odd...but at least it worked.

I have a rather silly question. I noticed my little reputation thing and thought to myself "you should give some kudos to some of the other WW players, as they did a spectacular job, etc., etc." So I tried. But it won't let me go to it. I wondered if it was my IE acting up, so I tried Firefox, but still to no avail. Somehow I managed to get to Noggie's (don't ask me how I did that) but I keep getting some error. I know it's really not that big of a deal, but it irks me that it won't work. Any suggestions?
