    Default User's local times in the postbit.

    My proposal: A field in the postbit that shows the local time for a user.

    Purpose: This will help users get an idea of when they might expect a response from another user (especially a mod, if it concerns warning and/or infractions).

    For games with a timed phase element (such as mafia games), moves you make need to take into consideration the timezone of the other players. Knowing what time it is for them will be especially helpful.

    Shiny Celebi has also pointed out that it could have some use for the traders in the trade forum. This will help them find traders within their time zones so that neither user wastes time trying to initiate a trade and finding out that they cannot do it due to radically different time differences.

    Tools needed: A mod, of which there is one here.

    Down. For location, just put "GMT +/- insert number here"


    EDIT: I miss understood the proposal. Up. As a user who spends most of their time in the Trade Forum, this would be a very nice new feature. UP.

    UP. Would help a lot in the trade section (overseas trades time problems anyone?) and also probably on other forums too.

    I can't see your logic if this would just make things easier. Not everyone wants to calculate time differences.

    UP. This would be really convenient and it would eliminate the need to calculate someone's local time, which a lot of situations require.

    Along with the gender thing, I'm sort of worried about cluttering the postbit, but I think the benefits that it'd bring would far outweigh the clutter. So, Up.

    DOWN - You can just search for a time zone converter on Google, you know?
