Unaccounted DST affecting dates on the website

Hi there,

I have noticed that the date system on Voobly's profile pages (mainly birthdates) and generally, in relation to timestamps does not take into account of British DST (Daylight Saving Time) or more correctly BST (British Summer Time).

At the moment, it is still BST (+1) in GMT for folks living in the UK.

Now, all the dates between March 31st and October 31st show as 1 day before; for example when choosing August 24 for my birthday, it will show as August 23 on the website. :S

Can this be accounted for and corrected, so that it shows the correct dates, regardless of DST being in effect or otherwise?

From what I have read is that that US use a different DST time scale compared to BST, so it may be more trickier than it seems? ;ermm

Thanks in advance!

I had the same question time ago, because of my birthday. Not a big deal but let's see if something happens...

I live in Belgium, and it's 6:00 am my time...
A friend of me from USA, just offline, and I see on his profile last online 2:35 am...

So, there is something wrong with the times (not the first time i see this too)

Before, those times were right, so something has changed on the website i guess...
