Please link to the page in question. You have a definite misunderstanding of relativity and the Lorentz transform, but I am not sure why.
It was the same page that you gave a link to when you put the equation on the forum to begin with. I think you have a clear misunderstanding of the difference between the actual time dialation and the observed time from a location, and that is why when you end up using the time dialation formula you always end up getting answers that are "wrong".

I don't think it is that hard to see that if two locations in an object are seen to travel at the same speed that they would have to expereince the same amount of time dialation, and they are just observed by an outside observer to be out of sync. I just don't know what else to tell ya, besides maybe that if you insist on only using that equation, I agree you shouldn't ever just use the time dialation equation alone without it...
