This is kind of half a bug and half a feature, but I'll put it in 'feature request'. Here goes!

If you look at the 'Streaming now!' items on the front page, or browse any person's submissions, you see this:
'6 October 2012 at 16:24:53' or in the 'Streaming now' case...'gillpanda since 08:55:16'

At the very least, (this is the bug aspect), can indications of time on the site at least have what time zone they ARE appended - which is presumably the server time? E.g., '6 October 2012 at 16:24:53/UTC-5', etc, emphasis mine. In this case at least we'll know what times we're looking at until there's a longer term solution.

And, ideally, (this is the feature aspect), allow a user to select which time zone they are in, in their own profile, so that times will show in their preferred/local time zone? :)

Thanks!
