LSF@10 Planning [was: Day counter on site...]

#1 Post by gekiganwing » Tue Dec 25, 2012 11:54 pm

Even before logging in, I noticed a counter saying "30 days," and counting down the hours/minutes/seconds. Is some contest happening? If not, why is the counter active?

I only saw it 3 hours ago and it creeps me out, too. I thought it had always been there and didn't pay much attention to it but holy pancakes what's going on here? Are we secretly part of some sect now? *runs away and prays in a corner*

if not for this thread then I will never notice the countdown XD

As for me, countdown usually means that something new and good will be released, that's what usually happen in anime. I'm actually surprised that countdown can scare people o.o; ... .

Took me a while to find the timer.
And yes, it is a little scary. Oh, the suspense! Q w Q;;

I have an idea as to what it could be, but I guess only waiting for it to end will prove if it's what I think it is...

I'm kinda hoping someone will figure out what it's for. So feel free to guess what it's for in this thread - it should be pretty obvious if you're right.

I thought Py'Tom didn't pay the fees for hosting this forum or something, and that they were counting down to its annihilation date. XD

I figured out what it is :wink: Of course, now that I realize what it is, it'd be sad if I couldn't! :lol:

Maybe something cool will happen then?

Now that Blue Lemma has posted, there's a pretty clear hint on this very page.

BlueLemma really shouldn't post in this forum since by doing that, he's giving a very big hint... more over since Sake-bento said that there is a hint. Oh well... For me, it's "31 days" left though...

Is this supposed to count down to January 31 or something?
what's in January 31?
