I think it would be nice if you added an Arizona time zone for those of us who are fortunate enough not to need to Spring forward or Fall back.

Because of the way a user's time is based off of GMT, the code would have to run two operations on the time code: one to convert it to, say, MST, and another to detect *when* the post was made to correct it for the hour difference that GMT accounts for when accounting for standard time and daylight time.

Because of that, and the numerous extra operations that this would entail, my only suggestion to you is to deal with it as best you can. Convert your timezone appropriately when the rest of the country goes back and forth from standard time to daylight time. You're not alone, I can assure you.

You might want to go over to www.vbulletin.com/forum and let them know about this issue. We are, IIRC, on the latest version.
