I am on en.wikinews.org
I go to the Prefs.
For the time zone, I choose "Fill in from browser".
See this screen photo:
The screen says:
"Time zone:" "Other (specify offset)" "02:00"
There is a contradiction. The time zone or the offset? You have to decide. These are different. Here in France, the time zone is GMT+1 whereas the offset is +2.
There is an error. Here in France, the time zone is GMT+1, not GMT+2.
It would be nice to clarify and to correct that.
Usually, computer systems are good at knowing the time, they know the time zone, they know about the summer time..., better than me.
It may be a good idea to let the site handle that and to free the user from dealing with that. The Prefs are already too heavy.
