    So I realized how players tend to post on staff profiles, not knowing if they are asleep or awake and ask if they can get online to observe suspected hackers/kick campers from their game.
    What they do not know is that the staff might be asleep or it's school/work time. So what I suggest is to add in dates and time into the forum where it will appear in your profile. (Option would be in managing account details)
    There would be an option to show what timezone you are from, (date is optional as the time is more important) You can also choose not to show it.

    Something like this :

    The red text - doesn't really have to be red, just thought I'd make it stand out here to see the difference. [​IMG]

    It would also be useful for friends to keep track whether one is probably sleeping or not and wouldn't need to wait for minutes to hours on a reply as they're probably in wonderland.

    Reason why I thought of it, there are many sites that show different timing for timezones and someone who isn't as educated like me, I wouldn't know which to really believe and might be an hour or two off.

    Hope this is useful in someway! ^-^

    No, the skype status shows what time you posted it not what is the players current time.

    No no, your status that you are online or absent. The little circle with all the colors of the statuses.

    Oh! Sorry my bad.
    Not something like that, cause we can check from the main page, but we don't know if it's late for staff and that they may be getting ready for bed - or when you want to play with your friend but it's midnight for them so instead of waiting for a reply, you can check on their profile what time is it just in case you don't want to bother them. Like being considerate I guess.
    Since "What time is it for you" is a commonly asked question but I'm not sure if it'll make much difference.. since players would most likely still post on player/staff regardless of what time is it for them. :( Now I'm not too sure if this was even necessarily.

    Thank you, I hope others would find it useful as well since they are always looking for staff online and could keep track when it's noon for a certain staff which would be a higher percentage of being available instead of waiting on a staff when it's midnight for him.
