Change payout times and other website/page times to local times of each user. For non-American customers this gets really confusing and I feel like its best for everyone if you inform them about time details within their time zones for much better reference and understanding without confusion or unnecessary calculations.
The problem with this situation is that the time a payout is expected is always going to be between midnight and midnight Eastern time, so with the current site it's easy to simply state that a payout will be issued on a specific date.

If we convert payouts to local time zones, I think it has the potential to become more confusing, don't you? Someone who lives in Sydney would need to have almost every date dealing with payouts listed something like "April 3 2pm - April 4 2pm." We can't skip the times, because if we did, then it's possible that changes in the behavior of exchange withdrawals could cause a payout to be issued twice in the same local timezone, and the tables on the site need unique keys.

If you have a suggestion to resolve that issue, we welcome it.
Expected is absolutely ok. What I meant is not changing the times of when you issue payouts etc. but just the information displayed, like here:
* Today indicates the 24-hour period starting at 12:00am Eastern Time
For example information displayed as here gives me clear idea about time (from transaction details page):
Last Block Time: Sunday, April 4, 2021 at 4:29:57 PM GMT+02:00
Although GMT is not really a time zone per se, I can easily understand and read GMT & UTC formats and it's displayed in my local time too.

Nonetheless, below that information I can see this (about transaction time):
Time: Thursday, March 25, 2021 7:33:41 AM
and here I am really not sure what time zone it was, since it does not specify anything besides date and clock time somewhere on the Earth (perhaps CEST).

I would be pleased to see somewhat unified or standardized time formats all across the board. Many pages/forums/games automatically set them to the local time of each user. Another solution could be to use GMT or UTC formats but I know for the fact that these can be troublesome for Americans or people not familiar with them. Perhaps add option to change that in the settings, kind of old-school way to go about it.

Last request to follow up would be adding 24h format in the options/settings, but that's just to zip up all the topics surrounding time formats, even though I have no issues reading 12h formats.

I feel like these avatar settings are very strict for the 2021 standards:
Maximum dimensions; width: 90 pixels, height: 90 pixels, file size: 12.00 KiB.

We need to upgrade phpBB to the latest version, as the current version is out of date. I plan to do that later this week. Thanks for pointing this issue out!

It would be nice to have the miner name along with its earnings and blocks in all lists..

i have some minor miner ( :D ) errors but i had to unplug each one and replug to find the one throwing errors and fixing it ..
would have been nice to see next or on-click of that error warning the associated miner responsible for it ..

also, to see which of the miners settings work best towards me goals it would be nice to see the miner that found the block or submitted the share, thus i could tune my rigs even more ..

thanks, very well done so far, website is better then ever.. thanks
