Reminder! Last chance to vote.

Hey everyone; I hope your weekend is going well. I'm already back at work on Monday morning *yawn*.

I'm just popping in to remind you to vote at the August Rush Poll if you haven't already done so yet! I'm leaving it open for one more day, so if you haven't got your votes in before this time tomorrow, it will be too late!

Follow the link above to vote now! I'll announce the final 5/6 fandoms either tomorrow or the next day! ;-)

Before I go vote, I have to say that it's a little freaky seeing this posted at July 27, 2015 at 9:54 AM... it's currently 2:59 PM on Sunday afternoon here on the west cost. :D

*waves magic wand* Yes, I come to you from the future! I've been playing the timey-wimey game again! ;-)

I've always been very confused - does the time stamp on each entry follow the poster's time, or does this journal have a specific time zone? I never know when exactly I got called for daily count...

Like, all comments are in UTC time, it's written there, but are the entries also in UTC time?

I have no idea but her post yesterday caught me off guard. I guess the posts must go by the poster's local time, but H's response looks like it was at MY local time. So... um, no idea?

(Because I'm always so much help.)

haldoor is in New Zealand, so she technically is in the future to me (I live in EST). We didn't set up the comm to have a standard time, I don't even know if you can. So we usually go just over a day with things when we post something like this. You have a little over 4 hours left to vote.

Not that it clarifies much, but with Daily count challenge, you have 24 hour from when you noticed that it was passed to you. I have an alarm that reminds me to check each morning. If it has been fewer than 24 hours, I let it go. If it has been more than 24 hours, I poke you via PM.

Other than that, the timing at LJ has always confused me. Sorry.

Yeah, because there was once I posted a comment about 5 minutes after someone made the entry (I literally refreshed my Inbox and a new message came in to tell me about the entry) and the time of my comment was listed as 14 hours later.

So the daily count always confuses me, because silly LJ refuses to ping me properly sometimes and I don't check the comm page every day.

Hi *waves from the future*.

My understanding of LJ is that posts are always shown in the poster's local time, whereas comments in reply to posts tend to be shown either in UTC or a user's own local time, depending on which option they have chosen (I'm not sure if this is an option on all LJ plans or not, sorry). For instance, this post is made in NZST, your first comment shows up to me in NZST at Jul 27th, 4.32pm (local), which means you made the comment to me approximately 5 & 1/2 hours after I posted.

It is tricky insofar as the posts will always be in the user's own time (and they don't have anything to indicate this), but you should be okay with comments as they will be in YOUR local time TO YOU (as an individual user) or UTC (and it's usually in brackets which it is after the time on the comments).

kaige and I are not sticklers for you leaping upon Daily Challenge and such in immediate time as we know everyone's in different timezones, but if you comment to the post as soon as you notice it, to say you're on it, then we at least have some idea when you began your 24 hours. ;-)
