Why are all of my comments timestamped for 7 am tomorrow? How can I fix this?

Since not everyone's account is synchronized at the same time and since everyone can usually comment in any given thread, all comments' times are listed in the same time zone. Based on when you wrote this update and assuming that your observation was made shortly before, it would appear that the comments' time is coordinated with default Greenwich Mean Time (+0) which is the time zone that London is found within. That was my understanding of the situation a year ago when people were complaining about the weird timestamps on comments left in friends' journals.

This link (1) appears to suggest it is an issue with your settings unless their usage of comments (i.e. journal updates/threads) is different from what we're thinking (i.e. comments to threads).

I see... This is a new option that I didn't know about yet.

Did the advice in the link work? It's weird because I know there was a discussion about this in the Suggestions community but the memories function in that group wasn't working last night so I couldn't find it. That link is very different from what I heard people say when they were explaining the problem earlier.

The link worked pretty well. It said that I could fix it by going to my edit user info page.
