GMT / UTC and times


I would like to take the opportunity to ask the community and the developers especially to use UTC or GMT times in their posts.

It's really troublesome that everybody has to convert PDT/EST/... times to their time zones every single time.
UTC (and the sun-synchronous GMT) are STANDARDS.

Standards are there for a reason: they allow the entire community to use them and to easily convert to relevant times. Use them and allow the entire world to run more insync please.

And for the love of god, use a 24hr format.
Nothing as confusing as 12:00 PM or 12:00 AM.


Few conversions:
CEST=UTC+2 (CET = UTC+1)
PDT=UTC-7


I know timezones like PDT can be converted to BST or CEST or whatnot, but having to memorize only one coversion for everybody is easier than having to check every time (especially giving summer times).

So please, show some curtousy to non US players and use UTC times.
You only need to know one conversion as does the rest of the world.



Edit:
Forgot to mention this, but this is in response to the scheduled planetside day event as well as the old oshur event.
Both for which there was confusion in outfit chat, which is just easily avoided with using standards.

use standards, just like you would use the standard PDF for documents, it's what they are there for.

I 100% agree with the OP.

I would also like to take this opportunity to ask that events are planned for EUROPEANS as well. We did used to have our own server until you took it away so it would be nice to have more events in our daytime at a weekend.
