"End of Month"-Countdown

"End of Month"-Countdown

I suppose it would improve the timemanagement if we have 1 oder 2 Counter till the End of each "season". In this way everyone would know how long the got for playing games for the Ladder or the meijin league. It no one would be confused due to timezones.

I guess there are two ways to handle it: - One way would be to show the Time - converted into the user-timezone - the league will end. - the other way whould be a realy countdown like "2day 12h 44min 3sec"

both ways have pros and cons so maybe it should be discussed which way is better?

Additionaly I would suggest that the counter shouldn't be too big and maybe only visible at the league points-table sites? So it doesn't distract user and guest from reading news etc.

Hey Shisu !

That's a nice idea and it won't be hard to implement.

I am thinking I could show time in here like that:

The May OSR ladder started on May 01, 2017 and will stop on May 31, 2017 at 00:00 UTC.

with timezone automaticly adapting.

As for the countdown, I am wondering if it's relevent to have it all month. Maybe just for the last day of the month would be enought ?

It's done.

It was a bit more complicated than what I thought because of timezones issue...

Let me know what you think.
