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.

Yea, pretty much.

And Leehar, that's such a complicated process and I don't know how many people would think of that (I know I wouldn't). Plus having to logout isn't very fun.

I guess, but as I said, you have the time on the forum homepage, so I really don't see a need to put CC time on the top of every page, specially since that'll mean that everyone will need to convert that CC time to your normal one. I really think the BB code is a lot better for situations instead of complicating it with a CC time clock for everyone.

well, normally we already know what time it is for us, but we don't know what time it is for CC. that's the point of putting a CC clock at the top. It'll be the same no matter where you are in the world.

No one's complicating it at all. You realize that considering people's local time is shown on their computer anyway (bottom right for PCs, top right for Macs I think) that they won't have to convert anything. They'll see what CC time it is during their local time with the Live Clock and plan accordingly (when the CC time advances 5 hours, my local time advanced 5 hours). Things like that.

No conversion necessary. And like I said, having to click around (especially if in Live Chat or a speed game) to figure out what CC time it is isn't the most practical thing.

I just mentioned it because at the time of that post I was actually at varsity and the clock at the bottom right was showing 7 am when it was actually 2 pm (and which got me late to class as well >_>)

With regards to CC time, as I said earlier, thats what the bb code is for? I'm really not seeing a scenario where you'd desperately need a CC clock at the top of the page instead of using the resources that are already at your disposal. I've seen those clocks you mentioned before, but it's irritated me more than anything else having a clock thats always giving me a different time than my actual...
