Introducing the Official Campbell County Time Zone!

Post by Eugene on 23rd September 2013, 2:29 am

I've been thinking of doing this for some time now, but haven't done anything about it... until now!

When we are holding contests, elections and the like, we often specify an end date with a specific time in varying time zones. I wanted to give Campbell County one of its own. (A time zone, that is.) And that's exactly what we have done! As of now, Campbell County exists in the all-new "CCTZ"! (That's "Campbell County time zone".) So when someone says, "this contest ends at midnight on the 23rd of September", everyone will know when that is.

Note that I was wanting to have it set at UTC-7, but Bren pushed for UTC-6.... and he won. Obviously.  No way 

Anyway, you can see our all-new time zone featured on our CC time zone page! And we have also added a mini CC clock at the top of the left sidebar.

I hope everyone finds this addition helpful!  Very Happy Comments and thoughts are welcome.

Since almost all of the US and Canada (the location of most of our usership) observe daylight savings time, I think it makes sense to observe it in our time zone too. So for now, we observe DST, unless we decide otherwise. Smile

Thanks, Eugene!  I think that will save a lot of confusion on everyone's part.  Yes

Yeah, I suppose it could still be a bit confusing on your part.  I was mainly thinking of when someone says there will be a meeting in the chat, and they have to specify five different time zones for clarification.  At least from that standpoint, it will be easier, but you'll still have to figure it into your time zone.

The time zone really only solves one problem: figuring out which zone you're converting from. But a simple "MST" or "CDT" would do that anyways, with less confusion to boot.
