PS: On the time zone problems, are you able to reset zones to your own location on your personal Settings? Just wondering ...
I believe the time zone is the one selected by the site owner (Splash?) to determine when the new puzzles are put out, and the cut off times for submitting contests. The action seems to happen at 11 pm or 12 midnight ET, which is 5 hours later in the UK (GMT), that is 4 am or 5 am. I think the site does it once, so everyone gets new puzzles each day, same time (but not the same as ET, of course), and gets the same amount of time for puzzles in the competitions. I do not know that the site owner acts on ET, as I do not know where they are! They might be in the UK releasing in the early morning. One of the posters here noticed that the time of first new puzzles coming on was different than before the site disappeared.
I do not do the competitions myself, but I do look for the new puzzles. I do not believe this is changeable by us, the users, nor particularly useful to change it. Once you know the times for your time zone, you can rely on the times for new puzzles to appear, and competitions to begin or end. Does that make it clearer?
