I think park of my problem with the Internet is that it lulls me into thinking everyone's close by until some dose of reality reminds me that I'm in some freaky dimensional oasis in the middle of the Old South, where only retirees and college kids live, locked in an epic struggle to maintain a simple life on one side and to progress on the other - not realizing that the two are not mutually exclusive. (Even the weather doesn't want to get involved in that mess - the worst of it always gives us a miss.) It's a jarring sense of loneliness for us sometimes.
I wonder if having two timestamps, one with my timezone (Rooster Teeth's timezone) and the other with the member's own timezone, would help keep me grounded a bit more when online.
It might also help people plan online get-togethers better if they could see the differences in time zones. That would be a neat social feature... optional of course... and only after other social features are working as we need them to do.
... but on other social platforms, this could be a nice addition, too, so I know when someone in Newfoundland posts in the wee hours of the morning, its actually after sunrise for them, or when someone in Alaska posts well after bedtime, they're not actually staying up late yet. It throws off my perspective of their posts when my timezone says they're doing something at an odd hour.
