    What has happened to the clock on RHP. As I write it is 23.15, one hour ahead of GMT. My opponent moved half an hour ago at 23.51 GMT according to the game board ! It does state somewhere that RHP time is GMT.🙄

    "My Settings" enables you to set your GMT. Mine's GMT-5 or 17: 22...

    The time changed last sat... you have to go to your settings and change your time.

    of Hawaii and Arizona because those states do not practice Daylight Savings Time."

    Francopawn's profile indicates a residence in France. Wouldn't the time there be GMT the same as London?

    Doesn't matter when daylight saving starts or ends, it has the same effect - RHP timezone differential number moves by one hour and has to be adjusted manually by each user in their MySiteSettings screen. Unless you want to live with wacky RHP times until the clock changes again, that is. 🙂

    France is one hour ahead of Britain at all times of the year whether GMT or BST

    Thank you Kewpie, I hadn't realised that we had to reset our own page. It was the three different times showing on the various pages that caused confusion in my ageing "brain"!
