You are in the European time zone as far as WW is concerned, which is 5 hours ahead of the time the activities displayed on WI. The time for the activities is the same, they just happen 5 hours earlier for you.

You can change your time zone for WI, but I'm pretty sure it won't change the activities that are on the left, just the post times.

Here is a great chart from mathmom2's Asian rare thread that shows a time zone comparison:

I am not positive, but I do not think there
is a way to change the time zone on your
WW account.

There's no way to change it on Webkinz World. That is set to Eastern Time. If you are talking about WI, you can change it by clicking "Subscribed Threads" which is on the right hand side. Then on the right side of that page you click "Edit Options." The second last box is the Date and Time box. You should be able to get it from there.

Wait, are you talking about timezone differences?

If so, see where it shows the Asian/American/European curio shop rare at the top of this page... You can just put your mouse by it and it should help you

Well congratulations on getting your webkinz!
Ganz is currently located in eastern time (EST). So webkinz is in eastern time. Theres no way to change that. But i believe that GMT is an hour behind your kinz clock, so pardon me if im wrong
So if you have done a job, its 5:00 on your kinztime clock, and its 4:00 at your house, then i hope it shouldnt be confusing

I keep trying to read that and understand it, and now what I am getting from it is that you need time zone differences? If so, visit this site, it has a wonderful map. Time - Current time around the World and standard time zones map of the world- 12 format

Nikki, it sounds to me as though you registered your account without selecting a different area of the world from the normal one. Normal or standard Kinz time is indeed ET in North America. GMT is 5 hours ahead of ET so you end up subtracting 5 from your own time to find out what time it is KT (I have to do that too). The other option is to open a European account which would be GMT. You do this by registering as a new user (new WW ID and password needed), selecting your country (which it lets you do before you have to enter any codes) and then proceeding as normal by entering all the other information and a pet name and code. This will not change any previously registered pets to the new account. That cannot be done at all. I hope this clears up your confusion though. ET or KT is 5 hours behind GMT and to figure out when you need to be on to do certain jobs or events you have to add 5 to the listed time. If you want to avoid that, you need to open a European account which will be in your timezone.
