CZ:Time and date

From Citizendium, the Citizens' Compendium
Jump to: navigation, search

Citizendium operates across all time zones. This page is meant to help with problems that may arise from that.

For communication within Citizendium, time and date should be assumed to refer to UTC, unless explicitly stated otherwise.

Within Citizendium articles, a distinction is to be made for events that are or were confined to one time zone, or not. If an event was confined to one time zone, the Citizendium article should state the respective times in local time and date (as defined at the time of the event) if possible. If an event occurred across several time zones, it is strongly recommended that the Citizendium article state the time and date according to UTC. In both cases, exceptions require justification by a relevant Editor.
