On RootsChat, under 'Look and Layout Preferences', one can choose what time to set.

That's to say, one can set it to any time - not necessarily one's local time.

It is definitely not automatically set to one's local time.

I've chosen to leave my time as RootsChat time (currently BST) rather than setting it to my local time (currently Australia Central Standard Time).

So this post will show as roughly 2pm BST rather than roughly 10:30pm Aus CST - yes, we are about 8 1/2 hours ahead of folks in the UK.
