can you check if the correct country and timezone is selected in your Skype profile (Click your name or profile picture in the top left of the screen to display your profile information.)?

 

*assuming the time in your mac is correct

Re: wrong time/date displayed

hi, thanks for the reply

 

everything is correct. the time on my mac and the timezone selected in my Skype profile. However, i can't see the time anywhere in my profile. I have just selected the country i live in.

It's really weird coz i've just noticed it but as far as i can remember it has always been like that

Re: wrong time/date displayed

I cannot  find where else to post this - hopefully someone can help me

 

I have found "last seen online' particularly useful for my contacts. I had to reinstall skype the other day and now I don't seem to have that function anymore.

 

Can someone please help me get it back - it is so handy! Thank you so much..

I have the same problem. I have the latest version of Skype and my local time is displayed for any of my contacts regardless of time zone.

I changed the MONTH on my PC (which I shouldn't have to do) to Oct 2011 it's actually Sept 2011 and now it works. Really why doesn't Skype fix this, now I have to keep my PC one month ahead.

Re: wrong time/date displayed

  Ok what I did to solve this might be confusing but here it goes. When I changed the month so Skype would work my Microsoft Essencials stopped working and was orange not green and would not update. So I cleared history :sad: on Skype and removed both Skype and Microsoft E I rebooted then downloaded both again and sure enough both worked.  I removed and downloaded just to make sure the programs weren't corrupt and I wouldn't have to do this twice.  Hope this helps others the sad part is I lost all my conversations didn't think of saving them.

Re: wrong time/date displayed

The "latest version" possible is different depending on your computer software and hardware. Please be specific about exactly what version of Skype and OS X you have, and provide logs as described in the first floated topic in the forum.
