TIME-SENSTIVE AUCTION ISSUE: Time zone issues

Dear all,

While many people have listed their auction ending times as Eastern (or other US time zone) Standard Time, it's actually Daylight Savings Time in (most of) the U.S. right now. This has led to some confusion, since an auction on Standard Time ends an hour later than the clocks will show for those of us in that same time zone but observing Daylight Savings.

Auction listers: please check what you posted and, if you actually meant EDT, please correct the listing.

Bidders: please check the listing for corrections, including the comments, as some auction listers have made corrections in response to my comments.

Questions about this or any other last-minute stuff?
