[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.

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

Seems like a reasonable suggestion to a problem a lot people encounter.
Good idea.

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.
