Where can I set the clock which the forum is using? It used to be set according to my local time, but now it is several hours behind.

I've had always it set to GMT and reset it again since I noted the time discrepancy. The displayed time seems to correspond to US ET despite my zone.

I set the time to GMT but it is still many hours behind. Something is malfunctioning.

Moving to the Forum support/Help subforum where someone who can actually do something about it might see it.

There are a couple problems like this.

The root of the problem is the way GS is currently hosted, as it's just too labor/time intensive and expensive for the size of the site. In the next few weeks, I am probably going to move the entire site to a new server with a host which specializes in sites using the Xenforo forum software, which is what currently powers GS. The advantage will be that I will no longer have to maintain the forum software. Instead, a team of Xenforo techs will ensure the forum operates smoothly and is kept up to date with the latest version updates, etc.
