But it's still January here... What is our time standard for FPOTM?

Well done.

Having just posted that, I notice the time comes up in your countries time, so back to the drawing board.

Hmm, I guess I didn't really think it all the way through.

The old FPOTM used to be run at CET. This went back to the old days of the very first F1-Live forum which was running at CET. Since the very first FPOTM competion was held on there, that is the time-zone that stuck. Later when Wycco developed the specific FPOTM site, the same time was kept for the competition.

Now I am not sure how to apply that here unless we all agree to set the time fixed. I think that I can modify the time you see to be either your time zone or a fixed one.

Meanwhile, and it looks like Eso is today's winner with his 00:54hrs entry...  cheers

Well no, because my entry was at 0:00 Central European Time. Eso's was at 1:54.

Precisely...!
Yours was at midnight of the 31st January.
Ergo, not on 1st February.

It's the same reason why Insurance Cover is detailed as starting at 00:01hrs on a date - saves arguments...  Suspect

So the benchmark is Central European Time.

So I'm currently 9 hours behind that clock. I'd be looking for FPOTM before I go to bed...

Going back to the old FPOTM rules, it is the first post after midnight. So, 00:00:01, or even 00:00:001 etc. is valid. At its most active, FPOTM would certainly be won by a 10th of a second.

I never participated in that, but I know about it well. It was a while before your time gelert.

OK, I'm in. My time zone works well for sniping...

Old rules then.
CET - and as long as it's midnight exactly or later, that counts.

I still reckon Eso won that round though...before this "clarification".

Double-points for the last three months of the year...?

Missed it! But then again, I am in Singapore right now, so a bit confused with the time zones...

I was told someone is fixing the FPOTM results after they have been sent in.

Don't shoot the messenger, but this is who was is doing the fixing.
