We have had a countdown clock on the Merry Forums since the day we opened in 2004. In fact, until this upgrade I've used the same ancient script to drive it. Until now.

The countdown clock has been modernized and is even clickable - it takes you to the Countdown forum - and it appears for all users at the top of the right sidebar.

If you cannot see it, kindly let me know.

Thanks for the update, I had been looking for the countdown, I like that it includes months, it will be fun to watch that number drop!

Oh, I found it ... it's on the forums homepage only.
Just a suggestion: Could it be pinned to the top of all the forum pages?

I noted this as soon as I signed in today, but LOVE that it takes you right to the Countdown! Awesome!!!

I'm playing with that. It's a bit awkward looking at the top. I might just use the old script to get it on all pages....

Just my 2 cents but I think it's fine being just on the forums homepage.
