Did anyone remember before the bigass forum update, whenever you went onto a member's userpage, you could see what time it was in whatever part of the world they lived in?

Yeah. Whatever happened to that?

If I know universetwisers well enough and the way he talks, and I like to think I do, he is actually meaning to ask what has happened to the feature in regards to it being hidden somewhere in a menu or implemented in the new forum sometime if it is not already around but not activated by admins.

    I know you've been complaining, but you weren't ready.

It was probably an unneeded resource for a community and was just wasting database resources, so IPS removed it. I don't see many communities relying on other members' timezones.

Well it does exist, if you look in the settings menu for your profile it will ask for your time zone and below that it displays the current local time for you, but it is only displayed in the settings menu which you can only see for yourself.

I think it is useful, as when looking someone up it is nice to know what there local time is, even if they list the country and location it is nice to see the local time especially if the member is offline and your wondering when they will be about or how close to an approx time when it is suitable for them to be online again.

It would also help in Crew Recruitment, since many crews recruit people based on their time zone...
