Yes, I think the times on the proz website are always adjusted to the timezone settings you have chosen. At least this has been the case in my experience with other events. Very helpful!

I did that multiple times. I see the buttons, the problem is that the screen that shows up is blank with no further action for me to take. I tried several browsers, same result. I'll try one more.

Thank you, that's what finally worked. I had checked out the guide, but the options are set up differently in my browser so it took some digging to find the correct setting to click. Seems like I missed some interesting discussions, but now I'll know for next time.
