Okay .. that's just scary
« on: January 05, 2013, 05:58 AM »


I was perusing the messages and glanced up to read  "Up Late Aren't We, Ang123" - at the top left corner where it should just say Ang123. That's scary  - funny too. How long has this been up? Never seen it before. Well done who ever thought of it. Still slightly scary though.

BTW - its lunchtime here!

Anyone else been freaked by this or is it just me?

Happy new year to you all.

A

Unless you go into your account and set the clock it is on PTS time you are going to get messages for the for the timezone PTS is in.  That's the default.  That is why the message doesn't match your time.  Mine is set and at 3 pm it says Good Afternoon.

Mr Admin just adjusted it.  If you want to see a  message for your time zone, I suggest setting the clock.

It's just a greeting based on your time. What's the scary part?

I think they're just paranoid. :D :D :D That the site is reprimanding them a bit about staying late. :D :D

I love the little messages! No one is up as late as I am at my place so I don't have anyone reminding me. I feel like i have a friend in the weeeee hours. Keep it up lol

Shades of Big Brother?

Thanks Lex  - I'm glad someone understood my paranoid comment.

But then the best stalker of 2012 would understand!

It's great - I love the way STP is so personal and having the wrong time zone reminds me that I am chatting to people from all over the world.

I find it hilarious and welcoming.  Makes me more comfortable in foraying out of lurker status  :bravo_2:
