Another update this month, this time to add a few much-requested features. See the change log below for details.
An oft-requested feature is the ability to set a timezone. You can do so in your My Account page under Options. You can also set it in the quick options menu (see item 3 below for more details on what this is).
The default timezone is Eastern time, which is where Stardock is located.
2. 24 Hour Clock option
This option allows you to set all of the times in the forums to either a 12-hour clock (with AM/PM) or a 24-hour clock.
3. Quick Options menu
After implementing the flatten categories option, we realized that not many people know that we even have an options page. The problem is because the options are buried under a couple links and aren't exactly easy to find. The solution was to add a quick options dropdown menu in a place that people will see. This dropdown menu is located below the forum search.
Click on it and select an option to immediately change it or view a page explaining what it is (depending on the option).
"Switch to 24-Hour Clock" will immediately switch your clock (you can change it back to 12-hour by clicking on the option again). "Flatten Forum Categories" and "Change Timezone" will redirect you to pages explaining what they do:
4. Other minor changes and bug fixes
The only other visual change is a link at the top of the page for the Recent Posts list:
