Schedulers beware: Non-linear time warning -- DST coming yet again!
Someone just pointed out to me that Daylight Savings starts again in most of the USA and Canada this next SUNDAY (10 March)! The server clock, I believe won't change until 31 March. In some regions, it just ended a couple weeks ago. In others, the clocks changes are all willy-nilly. Point is, heads up! As you are scheduling, be cognisant that the clocks may do some funky jumps in the coming weeks.

Don't have any games to schedule? Consider creating a Secret League team for the Old World Rookie Rumble. A few more teams, and we're certain to start seeing games scheduled across those funky jumps. Don't miss out. ;-)

This is exactly why some people get nominated for FUMBBLER of the year, Raz!
:)

I nominate Raz for 2019 for his services to Daylight Savings Time scheduling!

Naw... this is self serving announcement really. As many know.. I often schedule games days or weeks in advance, and DST can easily interfere. I just want games played. Now, if someone could arrange to have DST abolished, THAT'D be a worthy accomplishment. :-)

Current timeline for the EU is to get rid of daylight savings in 2021.

Until then, you can use the scheduling system on the website (clock icon below scheduled games), which automatically converts to/from the timezone you've set in your about page. Certainly not perfect, but at least it's something.

Thank you Christer! I didn't know that. That is fantastic news. Now if we could just get the countries in NA to enter the twenty-first century.
I love the scheduler, and I've put together a quick help to get coaches started (https://fumbbl.com/help:Scheduler). Every once in a while I get a convert. :-)

Razmus, the starman noticing the daylight shifts every so often! Legend!

I really don't understand how people could have thought DST was a good thing. I live in Germany and probably most people have an idea of our reliance on trains and the extent of the rail network in the country. But guess what they do in October when clocks get rewound an hour? They friggin' just let the trains rest for that hour upon arrival at the next train station! Your trainride would usually take 5h from A to B w/o delays? Not so on DST-transition-day (in Oct.): It's +1h, the only reason being: Every other way of dealing with that transition is just too complicate and would mess up timetables and people's brains!
