I just secured my membership but can't figure out which GMT time zone i should've checked off in my profile settings.....it is currently set for -8 and that doesnt correctly reflect the proper time when i send a message.   Any suggestions??    thank you in advance for your help.    Scott

Scott,  I ran into the same thing last week.  I though -8 was right, but as you said the time on the messages was wrong.   I will watch and see what develops.   Oh, I live in San Diego, CA?

Test to see if this is corrected yet...setting -9GMT for Alaska....up to today, I had to select a time zone near Moscow, Russia to make it work for Alaska. 
I am writing this at 22:21 on 2/16.

Yep....it looks like something changed in the main server in the last 5 hr that has set the correct time zones now.

Yep looks like the time zone issues have been resolved.....which might explain why all the last read pointers got reset again lol
