I'm sure it could be done using Flash if someone has the skills and the package to do it.

TickerFactory.com does countdowns that many people use as sigs on forums.

Got to try to make it so that tickers work with multiple timezones... many of the Javascript ones don't and will give incorrect values, as they use the visitor's system clock (ie. 1pm on Sunday in the UK isn't 1pm on Sunday in the US - and the website doesn't adapt).

i will see what i can find out Smile

i doubt if a different time-zone one would work because if i do find one it will be embedded in the forum but streamed from another site, so to have a different one for each time-zone would need loads of different timers.

ok, i have found a basic one & posted it at the top of the forum Smile

is it ok ?

as i said i know its a bit basic, but a few other sites use it with no problems & its easy to change the race name & also its free cheers

there are other ones that are more flashy but they seem to require more work as they are used more for one off things, but i will keep looking & see what i can find, but a simple ones is best i think as the other Admin can also change it Suspect

Good Morning Big-Al,

That looks good and you did it in no time at all.

Well done, and thank you,

Chris.

Can we style it blue, perhaps, so that it fits in more with the site?

Must admit that at the moment I find it an irritation... if it were to blend in perhaps I wouldn't have to see it... but bright red... well, you can't ignore it.

i can make it blue, & there is a limited range of colors to choose from Smile

one can be done for bikes or sports-car anything in fact, however im not sure how many can be added at once though, i will have a go later on when the site is quieter & i have more time to try it.

Blue look great... it's there if you want to check it but it doesn't distract from the site.

Thanks,

Sean

Embarassed

it's no probs guys Smile

im still looking round for other ones & may put diffrent races up also, not tried yet to see if two will work at once, however i don't want to over-do-it so it looks tacky, so if you are on-line when im messing about & you see a million timers you will know why Razz

I like how the count down has been incorporated into the forum, it looks very neat and clear. What I also like, is that the countdown is only on the homepage, having a constant reminder on every page could have got a little wearisome.

Should we do this for Le Mans too? Le Mans generates our biggest race threads, F1 GP threads are second. So we should consider that. The countdown clock should focus on the series that generates the most threads.

Excellent work Big-Al.
