    Perhaps this has been answered before but why are the time zones set for London?

    Why not the east coast ?

    Technically, it's set to UTC (or Coordinated Universal Time), which is a standard used around the world. There are a lot of benefits for using UTC over a local time zone, but there's no need to get into all of that.

    We use UTC as the default for all new accounts, but you can change your time zone under your account preferences. This will automagically adjust your view of displayed times on reviews, forum posts, etc.
