Yeah, but now that everyone can set their time zone offsets, noone here even knows what the real time of the bboard is.

Out of curiosity... where IS forums.beyondunreal.com?

Um, if I post at 12:01 am, it's 1:01 am to anyone in the maritimes.

If they posted at 11am my time, they're too early. But they think they were first.

Doesn't work.

If you want to compete for 'First Thread' you could only do it with people in your own time zone.

I should hope you'd have a hard time finding people who'd want to compete in such a competition.
