The forum software (phpBB) does not support daylight savings time (DST). It runs 100% on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) which does not have daylight savings time changes twice a year.
So what does this mean?
If you live in an area of the world that has DST (ie: you have to change your clocks twice a year), and you want the times to appear correctly in the forum, you will have to go into your Profile Page and change your time zone by one hour at the same time you change your other clocks.
(Great. Another clock to remember to change...)
To see what time the forum thinks it is, go to the main forum page and look near the top left where it says (for example):
