It would be nice if during the creation of events, Discord could let us set event date/time in the timezone of our choice (default to local timezone) and have it convert everything automatically. Event times are rarely announced in my timezone. So currently when, for example, I want to create an event to watch the game awards together with my buddies (all from very different time zones), I have to manually convert it to local time first before I can create the event. After which I triple check it to make sure I didn't convert the time wrong because timezones are hard and DST is a foreign concept to me which makes things worse at certain times of the year.
From my understanding they already do conversion to everyone's local time zone so this is just a logical extra step for convenience when creating events. Note that I am only referring to timezone settings for creation of events. Users seeing the event in their own time zone is an incredibly useful thing that should not be changed (and I would argue is half the point of events).
