Hey Mario,

While making a bunch of snipes here on Gixen, the usual countdown timers reads something like "3d, 8h, 24m" etc.

I was wondering if this field could include a standard date and time such as "Thursday, July 31, 4:30 pm too.

Just seeing what day would be helpful since I'm not good with numbers and a visual cue as to when the auction ends in a real date and time would be pretty helpful.

The problem with that is that Gixen is an international site, people view the pages from many different time zones.

The auctions thus end at different times depending where you view them from... Getting that display correct for everyone would be considerably more work than providing the, always accurate, value of the amount of time remaining.

You know, that didn't even occur to me about the time zones. Makes sense. Thanks for the replay anyway.
