In the past, our seed swaps showed the important dates (when will trading begin, etc) in the Garden.org's UTC timezone.

Starting now, it actually tells you in your own timezone when each milestone will be reached.

So, for example, you can now see that @poisondartfrog's swap will start trading on January 1st at 6:00pm Central time.

In the past there has been some confusion about when each event occurs. Hopefully this completely resolves any of that confusion. Smiling

Hurray! Thumbs up Hurray! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Wow thanks Dave, I think that is a great improvement. Solves what I think is the main point of confusion in the swap threads.
Those running swaps will however need to update the instructions to include this info.

Just wanted to thank you again for this.

I always felt like an idiot, not knowing which day "Midnight" falls into, and then confusing East Coast with West Coast for "Greenwich minus X".
