Can we this feature please? We have so many time zones with DST without bla bla bla. It would be really ncie if we can adjust eve clock to our time so it stays there and keeps this time, on all things like skills, jobs etc. Like an option to select the city you live or something like that.

Or you could just use your own clock to tell the time, instead of the one in Eve. GMT/UTC/Zulu time is a single time zone that everyone can agree on and is essential for working with players anywhere other than your own time zone. If you are only playing by yourself or with IRL friends, use whatever time you're used to.

If you want to see your skills/industry jobs/etc in your own time zone, either do simple addition (if it's 6PM here and the industry job finishes in 3 hours, it'll finish at 9PM) or use EVEMon (EVEMon does support time zones for display). Note the difference is that EVEMon is a single-player program, you're the only one that uses it, while Eve itself is multiplayer.

have not seen the tz bait used for a while, interesting and oddly refreshing choice.

Look at your timezone (click on time lower right hand corner, click on timezone), add or subtract the number it tells you....and there ya go. If its complicated to factor in DST, write your congressman to end it. DST was for farmers a long time ago. It, like standard vs. metric, needs to go away. Ex-pat here....its a much better way to do things.

Um ... Eve time IS UTC. And it doesn't use Daylight Savings time at all.

Eve USES UTC.... its not UTC.... tehre is a difference to what that brick squad kid said. Still noone talked about forcing a specific time. Im talking about an option. Saying that you cant organize your corp because ppl use their local time is the very least.... unprofessional.
Besides CCP can add 2 times, server time and local time, like many other games.
