Weird question....

What time zone is the time on the website in? Because I know there's a 2 a day limit on the page... but I updated "She's Not You" well past minute (I didn't get home until almost 12:30) and it says it was still updated on the 10th.. which means I have 3 stories on the Most Recents page that says 7/10/12.

So is there like a certain time, say 1 a.m. because the site is in CST?

I wanted to point that out because I just noticed it and didn't want to get banned.

Personally I don't think it matters, you shouldn't be updating more than 2 stories within the same 24 hours. That's the point of the rule no matter what time zone it's set in.

I only say that though cause others have been ignorant to the rule or aspects of it and they still got banned. I mean updating right at midnight seems like trying to skirt the rule anyway.

eFiction takes the time zone from the server which is in Central time.

Well personally I don't think you should be jumping to make accusations. I didn't wait until midnight to "skirt" anything. I mentioned midnight because I know I didn't get home until after it so there was no way I could have posted that chapter on the 10th.

Besides, no where in the rules does it say anything about that, not that I was trying to "skirt" around it as you said.

Thanks Julia btw, I replied to your DM Smiley

I said "seems" for one, which by definition states that's how it looked, not precisely what it was. I was on AC at the time. I mean posting right after midnight is a little much, especially when you updated earlier that day and you aren't sure what time it'll log it as. People post from many time zones so it makes sense to err on the side of caution.

That's all I'll say on it though, as it is not my place to say more.

I wasn't accusing anything however, simply making an observation.

Right.... it's what it "seemed" to you, but that's just a slight way of going around what you really wanted to say, which is accusing me of skirting around the rules.

It was another day, plain and simple. When I saw the mistake, I pointed it out in case I was in the wrong. Maybe the rules should be expanded to say two within a 24-hour time difference? And have the actual times placed on the layout (because I don't see any, just dates).

Way to make someone feel welcomed. *golf clap* Somehow I'm not surprised, though.

Okay Karah, if you want to think that way, you're welcome to it. I however, don't want to discuss it any further. As I said before, it's not my place to say more than what I already stated. So after this I'll be done posting in this thread.

I would think you felt welcomed though, since you've been a member longer than just recently? In any event, have a nice day.
