Is something wrong with the forum time?  Or is there some setting I can adjust so that the time makes sense?  It's ahead by an hour.

Profile/Modify Profile/Look and Layout   There you can adjust the time to sync with your zone.

I don't find the "Look and Layout" option.

I note that now the forum appears in 24-hour format instead of 12-hour.  That change seems to have occurred sometime after the short outage late last night or early this morning.

Yes, I changed the time format to 24 hour yesterday, and you also need to know that the system default timezone is now set to Central Standard which is the owners physical location, you should see in your profile admin section an option in the drop down menu items named "Look and Layout", choose that and then right in the top section are two time related options you can use to over ride the system defaults, and notice that right next to the time offset option see a link that says "auto detect"? I'm pretty sure that functions correctly...

The most urgent bug remaining of many is the quoting feature, it is broken and is my main focus at the moment... you may not be aware that the membermap main menu button is functioning perfectly now where it hasn't worked for a couple years...

Being able to insert quotes would be peachy, thanks for your work here Bob!

Ahh, that did it.  Thanks.  Took a little searching of menus to find the "Look and Layout" item, but it seems to have worked.
