PostSubject: Whats a TimeZone? - Steven.   Sat Jul 07, 2012 12:32 pm

A time zone is a region on Earth that has a uniform standard time for legal, commercial, and social purposes. It is convenient for areas in close commercial or other communication to keep the same time, so time zones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions.

Most of the 40 time zones on land are offset from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) by a whole number of hours (UTC−12 to UTC+14), but a few are offset by 30 or 45 minutes. Some higher latitude countries use daylight saving time for part of the year, typically by changing clocks by an hour. Many land time zones are skewed toward the west of the corresponding nautical time zones. This also creates a permanent daylight saving time effect.

I Steven, Live in San diego, California. I live in a Pacific Time Zone, UTC-8.

If you are filling out Staff Applications, Use this to help you Answer number 5. I Will call you out on it if you did not fill in your time zone correctly.


These examples give the local time at various locations around the world when daylight saving time is not in effect:
