The result of the debate was Use UTC for all future votes and other timekeeping.—Xwing328(Talk) 02:29, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
There has been some recent confusion regarding just when one day ends and another begins for the site. This was most clearly demonstrated when there was a debate over whether a Wookieepedian of the Month vote should be included, as although it was twenty minutes past midnight on server time, there was still plenty of the day left in North America.
I'd like to propose that for purposes of voting and other timekeeping, either UTC or UTC-12 be considered the "official" time for Wookieepedia. All votes closing on certain days will end at 0:00 UTC.
Hmm, what about UTC-8, the local time of Lucasfilm Ltd.? jSarek 11:26, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
That makes no sense whatsoever. --Imperialles 14:55, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
Well, it's a convention that was followed for a few other websites I used to visit. Lots of old Decipher, Inc. fansites were set to "Decipher Time," i.e. Eastern Standard Time, for instance. Eh, it was just a thought not offered in total seriousness anyway. jSarek 21:37, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
Heh, that sounds like something only a fanboy could propose. :) -- Riffsyphon1024 22:00, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
