Default Forum time zone

Hi, Where I live we have the twice-annually messing about with the local time zone. US CDT (UTC-0500) vs. US CST (UTC-0600). It's CST now and has been for weeks. The forum persists with CDT. I've repeatedly tried resetting it as shown in the attachment, but the forum persists in using UTC-0500 as if it was still summer or I was located hundreds of miles east of here, or in Saskatchewan. So I'm still seeing lots of posts seemingly posted up to one hour in the future. This post is at 9:37 local but the forum shows me 10:37. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_Time_Zone Is there some way for a mere mortal forum user to fix this?

Switch to "DST corrections always off"? This is a recurring issue (see https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=24323).

Thanks. It's clumsy but it works. That such manual intervention is necessary is just wrong.
