    Event Timer [Suggestion]

    Instead of always updating it, why not make a queue, like FB's post queue?

    In example:

    Code:
    Date: day/month
    Time: 13:37
    Approx. event length*: 420 minutes
    *HnS can take up to hours, so put 1440 minutes

    The event timer works properly as long as the host provides an accurated timer, the main problem is somebody else editing it, since the feature takes the editor's timezone as reference so if I editted it to be at 10 PM, it'll be my 10 PM and yours would be different timing but still the timer would be the same for everyone.
    That's why I already asked Terumi to bring a link that matches his time, this also goes to anybody else hosting an event.

    It's pretty simple to use UTC, just see if it's DLS or not. Adjust it as needed.

    It's not a matter of simplicity but a matter of confirming the accuracy of the timer.

    I'll try to look for a better Timer. I installed the current one.

    Simplicity makes everything easier. If you set the timer to recognize time zones (like a drop down menu) it would make it a hell of a lot easier for those who want to host events.

    and also the hoster should show up on time which seems to also be a problem

    How can you tell he was timely or not if there were several problems with the timer....?
