I ran Census on Saurfang this afternoon.. and it didn't show up after upload.

After doing some checking I found that my record for that Census run shows a time stamp of current time + 24 hours.

This causes this entry to be in the future.. and therefore rejected by upload processing.

I need to check tomorrow if it is a bug that has been long standing in CensusPlus.. or if Blizzard has the Date set incorrectly.

If it is a problem in CensusPlus then all the Oceanic systems should fail updates when census is run? or run from US local clock time..?

too tired.. I'll check tomorrow.

I have confirmed the bug.. it is in the addon.. and has been there for a very long time.

And a fix could have been available ever since Blizzard added the Calendar to the game (or shortly thereafter). Rollie had no way to determine the Realms date so he played games with time stamps by comparing local computer time to realm server time and then later when available locale (US or EU) to calculate the time.. and he made a minor mistake.

I need to replace a couple of code functions and then link/fix 6 - 8 spots that call those functions .. look for an update in the next few days.

Metalbeast... you might want to look at the processing code.. to see why day in the future updates are? getting processed. I notice the Saurfang Horde went from 0 to 3 overnight.. did my update provide that data.. or did an Oceanic local uploader generate that data? I'm assuming that there is protection against date in future updates is in place.. and that someone on AEST time zone posted the update.

This update is only needed for people:
A: using US data center realms and
B: who census Oceanic realms from the America's or who census America's (north or south) realms from Oceanic time zone areas and finally
C: who upload their data to www.warcraftrealms.com.
