    Please be aware that a number of countries change timezone this weekend due to the end of summer time. However I am aware that this does not affect everyone, as such please do check your own and opponent's times for matches.

    As of 2am Sunday 28th October:

    UK returns from BST (GMT+1) to GMT - back one hour.
    Central Europe returns from CEST (GMT+2) to CET (GMT+1) - back one hour.

    Other European timezones may be moving similarly. However, I believe the US Summer timezones don't go back until 2 or 3 weeks down the line, but I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

    Either way - please be extra careful arranging games going forward for the next few weeks.

    Not now, no. But during summertime (daylight savings time) the amount of UK-landers who can't understand that GMT isn't their own time is impressive. :p

    I think it's safe to say the vast majority of us here are used to handling different timezones. :p

    Greenwich is in the UK, correct?

    Then the mean time at Greenwich should be the same as the rest of the UK!

    I for one am terrible with this.

    November 3rd-4th is the 'daylight savings time' for the US.
