    33As @vstars notes, this is a terrific chance to recognise that WP has grown beyond its initial scope, with sites allowing users across the globe (and across timezones) to communicate and collaborate in systems built on the WP Core. Making the Core work on UTC, with a default site timezone setting able to be overridden per-user (or per-session for non-logged in users where we might be able to get their timezone otherwise) would be the ideal outcome.
