I am making this poll for people to refer to if they want to make an event. In order to maximise the prospects of their event, people might want to know times that work for people (or if they want to cater to a specific community) All you need to do is enter your timezone. I will assume that anyone is available from 07:30 to 2030.
What is your timezone?
GMT -2 (I’ll be surprised if people vote this one)
An easy and quick way to calculate your Zulu time is to 1) Take the current time and convert to 24hrs 2) add/subtract your +/- hours accordingly. So, for instance, I live in MST, and the time right now is 09:30pm, so I change it into 24hr (21:30), and then because of Daylight Savings, I am currently seven hours behind GMT (-7), so I add on seven hours (+7) to get 04:30AM UTC (coordinated universal Time/ ZULU). It is simple to find a future local time in an event when it’s coordinated in ZULU. Let’s say there’s an event at 06:30 UTC/ZULU. Since you are five hours behind GMT (-5), you’d simply take the ZULU time (06:30), subtract five hours (01:30) and then, if needed, convert 24hr to 12hr.
Your difference will always be either UTC-6/-5 depending on the time of year. You will always be behind GMT in North/South American and once you pass Greenwich heading East, then the times turn to positives
You currently are UTC-6, so you must ADD +6 when converting TO ZULU and SUBTRACT -6 when converting FROM ZULU
