You don't need to at all.  I have never changed the time in my profile.  I believe that once the clocks change (this weekend) it will show the time GMT rather than BST.

The time offset is shown in your profile settings under layout preferences Your profile currently shows the time as 07.03 BST on Thursday 22 Oct.  Come Sunday morning 9am GMT UK time, it will show 6.30 pm your time - i.e. 9.5 hours ahead of GMT.

Hi There,

You will find it under profile and then click on look and layout preference
Then you will see time offset. by that is a box so if your time is 9.5 hours then in daylight savings it will be changed to 10.5 being one hour ahead

Hope this helps
