Hi Niantic,

How about aligning all event start time to local time instead of UTC 16:00?

I notice that when UTC event start time is used, it usually falls on a Friday. Take GMT+8 time zone for example, the start time will be effectively at 12:00 midnight on Saturday. So we effectively lose out on the weekend golden time.

No doubt, UTC timing also pushes back the end time, but Monday is the beginning of a work week. So Monday is also wasted.

By changing start time to 00:00 local time on Friday, and end time to 23:59 local time on Sunday, I believe it does benefits the working class and school-goers, across most if not all countries.
