View Full Version : Integrating a world time clock

I'm happy to see that we're a global community so I can improve my crappy old school english
but unfortunately due to the different time zones not all members can be reached at a certain time. :frown:

so I figured why not integrating a world time clock like this

or this part,

http://i.imagehost.org/0983/Weltzeituhr_eng.jpg

Desktop Clock, World Time, World Map and Time Zone Converter (http://www.programming.de/)


that way one could know better when to reach a certain member.

I'm looking forward to reading your feedback :top:

PS. thx, for translate from german to english @instab :top:

best regards

I hate clocks! :biggrin:

Personally it wouldn't bother me as long as it can be toggled off.

But don't forget there's TimeAndDate.com...

i'd love to see something like that but as anon said, if i can turn that off [for me OR/AND for all members] it will be perfect as i don't want others/guests to know my country because i'm a little paranoid :biggrin:

It would be a good feature at the site

Add it!

Its a good idea, however, how would this work? Would everyone have access to each others timezones? If so then wouldnt that reduce our anonmity just that little bit more to the outside world? As anyone could become guest and anyone can register as nonmember they will know roughly our geolographical location.

As long as we can maintain high anonmity and at the same time give better usuability of the forum I give 100% support :wink:

that's a point. this site honors security and anonymity. therefore the members are not able to see where someone is from unless he/she would include it into his/her profile voluntarily hence some doubt remains whether this would be very useful or not ...

You should be safe from some informers snitching on you, but for staffers it would be more suspicious, since you are hiding something.

For this forum clocks it would be in my opinion unnecessary and maybe excessive usage of resources

Well I thought of it like something secondary:

I'm using that too, but there's no paranoia level for staff members or users with the "can override paranoia" privilege.

I think these clocks would be useful only for small amount of users

not bad. but it wouldn't exactly match snitlev's idea.

That thing would use too much bandwith.Plus I don't see any reason for adding a clock widget to the site just for the looks.:confused2:
