DST Timezones

Short, concise description of the idea
Including GMT-based timezones in the profile page.

Full description of the idea
I'm usually situated in the GMT-3 timezone (in Brazil, more specifically) and we've just recently begun our daylight saving time; now we're one hour forward, thus in the GMT-2 timezone. When I went to change the timezone in the profile page, I noticed there's no option in that dropdown menu that would suit me, mainly because there's no major city within that timezone.

My question is, whether there's any way to include GMT-based timezones so it'd be less confusing for times like these when we need to change our respective time settings temporarily. Or, I don't know if you just make that changes automatically so that wouldn't be necessary after all.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Less confusion when choosing the correct timezone.
  • Making it easy to choose another timezone when daylight savings begin in our respective areas.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Too much information on the drop down menu.
