    It's A Bit Difficult

    Most of my friends are literally on another continent, so I'm always atleast 5-15 hours behind or forward. I wake up when they're sleeping or vice versa. I can talk to them now cuz I'm on summer vacation, I don't think I'll be able to when school reopens.

    Timestamps?

    Has anyone worked out how to get the site to display the times messages were sent etc in their own timezone rather than GMT-6? I've set the "timezone" thing on my profile to GMT, but it doesn't seem to have made any difference.
