While checking last_post timestamp in the returned json, I noticed a discrepancy of around 5 hours of the 'now' time and a 'just posted' time. AFAIK unix timestamp is UTC - so constant and timezone independent. Are DW timestamps modified to EST or have I messed up again with my calculations?
DaniWeb timestamps are supposed to be GMT time but I think there might actually be a bug over the past few months where they were US central time instead. I'll look into it tomorrow. Sorry for the confusion!
Thank you so much for catching this bug! Thank goodness it was only saving timestamps with the wrong GMT offset for a little over a day, so it was not the end of the world to have to update every table in the database. UGH.
yesterday, so all of the timestamps from the past ~35 hours are off by 5 hours. Grrr.
When I look at the total count post it was reset at 8pm EST instead of 1am EST.
