Is there a way to set a default time zone for all users?

I know where to set the default time zone in the Site settings area but I want all of our authenticated users to use the Eastern U.S. time zone as well so that the timestamps are consistent for all forum replies. Is there a way to do that for all existing and new users?

  • so that the timestamps are consistent for all forum replies

    Times are stored in a consistent format (usually as UTC dates) and adjusted to the accessing user's timezone so that they are accurate to each viewer.

    Is there a way to do that for all existing and new users?

    Are the existing users' timezones incorrect (not their actual timezones)? 

    If so, there is not a UI to do this, but a widget script or the REST API could be used to iterate on all users and set their timezone information.
