[Site] Live CC Clock on the Top Right of Each Page

Specifics/Details:
  • Taken from the site http://hattrick.org/ , I've realized that when site maintenance or something else is going down (tournaments, callouts, events, etc.) that to convert CC time to whatever timezone someone is in, they have to click links and look up in an ugly table. I propose we set up a live CC clock (and date, if needed) that shows exactly what the current CC time and date is

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • People can coordinate gamechat sessions, speed games, tournaments and events without having to convert through timezones and whatnot. I'm not the greatest programmer ever, but to me, this seems like a very easy fix to a very annoying problem. Having that link of CC time is annoying and obnoxious.

amen. very good suggestion! =D> it would be great to have a visible clock at all times, seeing this is an international site it should be clear for everyone on which time zone the site is running on. Though you can find out by posting or enterering the chat, it would be much more userfriendly if the time was out in the open!

one of the better suggestions in a while.

Thank you for your kind support jaimito101. I'm surprised no-one has suggested this before.

You can change your timezone in Control Panel -> Board preferences and the game will display in your timezone :idea:

Also, if you click that link I posted in the OP, you can clearly see what I'm talking about if you look at the top right of the homepage

This was suggested in the original CC time discussion. I'm not sure why it wasn't implemented then, but you find some details in that thread.

From the one I read (I think it was the "creation of CC time" thread), lack said something about having to still do conversions.

The thing about a live clock is you don't HAVE to do conversions...you just take the current CC time and date (it's a live clock, so you'll know what it is) and figure out how long until the event or whatever. No conversions required.

Wow! this would be so handy! And it would be universal so that it is the same time everywhere, which will help synchronize all CC users. i like this idea. And really I don't think this should be too hard to implement. It should take less than an hour IMO.

It would make it easier to tell what time it was for those who weren't on CC (i.e, not having to remember how many hours to add/subtract from your time)

Yes, yes, yes..server time showing live clock. Most real time game sites have this and would be a good addition to CC.

I think both CC time and your local time should be shown. That way you'd know instantly by looking at it how much you are behind/after CC time, and coordinating future events would be even easier.

not as handy as having a clock always ticking right there on every page tho.

yes, true, it would be handy to have both your time and CC time on the page... but wouldn't having your time on the page be a little unnecesary as you (should) already have it on screen when exploring the web (bottom right corner for Windows users)?
And besides, it would take extra programming to implement both times... to just display CC time it would hardly take more than 5 lines of code, I would imagine. Not that both couldn't be done, it would just be easier to do CC time.
