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.

having one in the first post of a thread for big races might be good...

I think that may be possible for F1 threads, because I have seen that countdown on other forums. The only problem is, on page 2, 3 etc will people really take any notice? Because naturally as a thread progresses, people don't tend to read old pages.

it depends on what timer you use & how it can be included in the different site areas.

I am actually not to bothered about having one for the bikes. It's not hard to look it up on the internet when the next race is on. Or use Matt's calendar.

Formula one ticker I needn't look at either, Sav always tells us anyway lol! lol!

Fantastic, I like it. Perhaps the Le Mans one should be in 2010? After all, Le Mans 2009 is over with. Just a thought, but I think it looks great.

thats what i thought when i put up a second one, but i couldn't decide on what to have as a third one, i went with LeMans (guessed the date) because its far away & the only other choices were IRL, NASCAR, BTCC, WTCC which are run every week it seams so there isn't much point as everyone knows that there will be a NASCAR race on sunday & the motobike ones seem to be on the same day as the Moto GP.

once the F1/Moto GP is over i will just use something else like the NASCAR or IRL or what ever to fill in the space.

after looking around, they seem to be the best ones as they seem to fit in well, they are very simple to change & do the job nice Smile

Yep, the best sportscar series in my opinion. You see close racing all the way through, not long, dire races with cars about 4 laps apart from each other. Proof that sportscar racing doesn't have to be dire.

It is a great shame that the count down clocks have been causing problems to the Forum site. I had got quite used to them especially after Big-Al went to the trouble of blending the colours with the Forum`s Image.


Upcoming Motorsport Events
(F1) German GP - Nürburg - 12th July / (NASCAR) LifeLock.com 400 - Chicagoland - 11th July / (MOTOGP) German Grand Prix - Sachsenring - 19th July / (IRL) Honda- Streets of Toronto - 12th July

Not the same is it............. I.M.O. study

well did the problems start as soon as the clicks were put up, or was in the last few days ?

as the host may have had problems that was causing our site to slow down.

Please let us have the count down clocks again.

Not many members complained about the clocks, so please if it does not disrupt the Forum site, may we have them back.

Thank you, Chris.
