Add TZ to steward list

Hello, had occasion to view this page for the first time recently. The language list column in the table is very useful, but another handy column would be Time Zone. Or perhaps better, an indication of what hours a steward would prefer or be most likely to be available. I'm not too familiar with meta; if a magic word can detect a viewing editor's time zone from their settings, then an ideal format for the data values in this column would be a pair of values (perhaps stacked vertically in one cell), e.g., for an editor viewing the table from their home in Western Australia:

+/- Name IRC nick Languages spoken Preferred hours Active from
Example exauser en, ca-1, it-2, de-3, fr-5 03:00-13:00 (UTC)
11:00-21:00 (WAT/Perth)
2020-10-32

The point being, that the "Perth" TZ in the example is the viewing editor's TZ, not the Steward's TZ. Thanks, Mathglot (talk) 21:25, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

This obviously did not go anywhere, but I shall say for the record that I have never found timezone information helpful. Volunteers go online when they go online. I would leave the table as it is. Thanks, AGK ■ 09:26, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
Agreed, I'm randomly online when I can, not every day during a certain timeframe. Stryn (talk) 10:33, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
As above, kinda pointless--Sakretsu (炸裂) 11:46, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
Also, this could tell people when stewards are not online so they can launch their spambot / vandal / libel attack. --Rschen7754 19:13, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
