How do I edit my timezone?:

I keep going into profile, and changing it, but it keeps reverting to Los Angeles.

Are you saving the changes?
'He strutted across the bedroom, his hard manhood pointing the way' sounds like he owns a badly named seeing-eye dog. 'Sit, Hard Manhood!
I click "Set timezone preference", Scroll till I get what I want, and click "set this as my timezone". I then get redirected back to my profile change, and the timezone is still Los Angeles.

Down at the bottom of the main profile page, there's a button marked "save" — are you clicking that after you set your timezone?

No, the page blinks back to the original, I don't get a chance to click it.

Edit: And now i've done it on a different computer, and it seemed to work...

I seem to have the same problem, I'm afraid: I go to my profile, click on the button labelled "Set timezone preference", select an appropriate timezone, click the button labelled "set this as my timezone" and return to find the timezone given as "America/Los_Angeles".

In answer to the above question, I don't seem to be blocking cookies from TV Tropes; there seem to be a few TV Tropes cookies present.

[up]Too many cookies, maybe, if there is such a thing?

I have a strange issue. I'm able to set a lot of things to my current timezone, but there's a lot of stuff, such as when a forum post was edited, that auto-reset themselves to West Coast time.

Which leads to strange instances of the post being made at say 10:00 AM and edited at 8:01 AM... Like so?

[up]I've seen that with other tropers, too.

[down]Yes, that seems to be a very widespread issue.

I have a screenshot example to clarify what I mean:

Yah, I get that too. It bugs me, and I'm considering not setting a timezone and just learning to convert in my head. Time zone preference doesn't affect page history either, as far as I can tell.
Merge those duplicates! Fix that factual error! Delete that shoehorned non-example! You have the power! Meta Four

[up][up][up][up][up]Perhaps - I won't try it now, but it may be worth a shot at a later stage, I think. Thank you for the suggestion. ^_^

Any fix for this yet?

I just moved it. Should have said something.

The time zone cookie works for me on the subforums, but when viewing the forum as a whole it still shows west coast time

That is a design flaw in the system.

Can said flaw be corrected?
 
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
