This is an offshoot of this question, where oxbow_lakes feels that casual users in the US have an advantage over casual users in the UK.
I was wondering what sort of user would do best in what sort of time zone, assuming a "reasonably normal" daily schedule.
When is it easiest to get upvotes? When is it easiest to get an answer accepted? How can you avoid the rep cap hitting you hardest?
I suspect that for reasonable "hard-core" users, the UK is actually a good place to be. In particular, I believe that correct answers to simple questions tend to be accepted fairly soon after the answer is posted. I rarely post between 12am and 6am, leaving that time "fallow" to get votes from old answers, but unlikely to get "wasted" acceptances. By breakfast time (8 or 9am) I'm usually at or near the rep limit, and that's when accepted answers start to come in.
I find it hard to analyse less regular users, as their habits are likely to be more divergent... hopefully others will be happy to dive into the data dump :)
