United Kingdom Entry[edit]

The UK entry is incorrect. Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey are not parts of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. They are Crown Dependencies. 82.163.24.100 (talk) 20:41, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Australia / Lord Howe Island[edit]

For some reason, Time Zone for Lord Howe Island (UTC +10.30) has been omitted. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord_Howe_Island Perhaps someone will fix this. Abunderment (talk) 10:19, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Fixed. Greyhood (talk) 21:36, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Potentially useful link[edit]

Someone posted Legal Time 2010 (as of 15 April) at List of country calling codes; while the list is from the ITU, it is just a list of time zones for various countries/regions and has nothing to contribute to that list. But it may be useful as a source here. Anomie 03:44, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Title[edit]

Should the title of this list be List of countries by number of time zones, or perhaps List of sovereign states by number of time zones, instead? And what are the criteria to decide on whether we should compile the information according to country or sovereign state? 112.118.149.119 (talk) 12:01, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism?[edit]

I see war of revisions about Kiev time, Minsk time, Kaliningrad time, Transnistria time and Magadan time: Ukrainian, Belorussian and Russian IP from one side and Turkish IP from other side.

Maybe Turkishs know better than Ukrainians, Belorussians and Russians about it?

Somebody, please, stop permanent Turkish vandalism. 77.236.35.44 (talk) 13:55, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Xinjiang Time China[edit]

The residents in Xinjiang mainly uses UTC+06:00, but it is used to its residents and unofficially to Beijing Time. ApprenticeFan work 08:01, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Format of timezone hard to search[edit]

The timezones look like e.g. UTC-06:00 but for some reason the minus sign is not a regular ASCII - but some multibyte character. This is silly and uncalled for, and makes it hard to search down the list. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.226.190.154 (talk) 19:20, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
