Posted:I hope this hasn't been done before, if it has it was a long time ago because I've just trawled through several search pages for "time" and not found it.

Just interested to know when you're online the most, as I always seem to be on when only about 2 other people are (and one of them's a lurker!). Personally, I'm on all through the afternoon usually, from about 12 to about 4 or 5. I can't really come on later because I don't have the internet at home. ubbcrying

Posted:i'm torn, i'm on a lot in the afternoon and evening so i just put evening. but its morning now. or, at least it is over here. it seems to me your poll is kinda confuseing as we have reps from all sorts of time zones (okay, mostly three i'm calling the US one big time zone)

Posted:It's true but then I don't expect people to work out their time-zones... if there's a big result for evening then I'm guessing people from the US, the UK and Aus will be on at that time, and considering that's where most of us seem to be from it'll give me an idea wink

And I made the poll so you can only choose one to get rid of fencesitters wink

And then again in the evening.

Posted:I put evening cos that's when I'm supposed to be on, but I go on at work 1st thing in the morning, then lunchtime and if I'm really distracted stay on the rest of the afternoon. Really had to stop doing that - falling behind n stuff....

No. Time is fixed throughout the world. Only difference is comparative to other time zones.





Didn't want to post that information but i know that some other sarcastic bastard was going to very soon and i wanted to beat him to the punch tongue

Posted:Like I said towards the top, just put it in relative to YOU. If millions of people say evening, then I can guess that there'll be people about mostly when it's evening in the US, the UK and Aus.
