Wink your own little clock...

I think it would just be awesome if WI would put a users time either underneath their avvies, or by 'modify post' button! It could have a little ticking clock that said that user's time of where they live! I know that its confusing when you get out of school at 3:00 your time then come and someone says that they just got out of bed! lol! Please post comments
Also, I think there should be an option, some people may not want their personal time shown.

Default Re: your own little clock...

That's a really cool idea, runlikethewind! I love it!
It would be especially cool if you could turn it off, like, in your details area! So, if you were Gifted or a GG, and trading, you wouldn't get frustrated if someone wasn't responding because it was night-time! Or, if you were just a webkinz and you didn't really need it, you could turn it off! Rep!

Default Re: your own little clock...

Like I mentioned in your other thread, runlikethewind, I think it is a good idea to let everyone know that this idea has been posted before and responded to by Justin.

My thread from nearly a year ago titled "Personal Clocks" (Link: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...clocks-323161/) suggested this same idea and Justin came to respond to various points we brought up as to how this would work.
He answered to these questions as well as posted several times throughout the thread:

Q: Does anyone find the idea a bit far-fetched?

Justin's answer: It is possible, but not very easy to do.

Q:

Justin's answer: It would be based on the server's clock, and would display differently based on each user's time zone selection.

Q:

Justin's answer: It would be frozen in time once a page had loaded.. Most people only stay on a page for less than a minute, so it wouldn't be much of an issue.

Q:

Justin's answer: I'm afraid that's next to impossible. What this would be is a text display of the user's current time, creating a graphical clock that would be automated based on that person's time zone is next to impossible, though it is a cool idea!

Justin also said:

He said it would be found:

I think it is a good idea, but i think that that could get a bit confusing for some people. Like justin said it would jusr say "your time is GMT- 5hrs"
Possibly people might not be able to get conversions. Great idea thouh! :-]
