A very useful add-on allowing members to see the countdown (in UTC timezone) to the end of a (informal) competition. I love the fact that I can change the colours to match our colour scheme and nominate a countdown admin who can adjust the time for me. Just wish I could run more than one of them at once to cover several overlapping competition countdowns!
Another 5***** rating from me, Andy has done it again with a very useful add-on. Works really really well.
Excellent as every addon from AndyB. With this addon you're able to setup a small countdown in your forum so that everyone know how much time will be for a particular event. Great!
