Through a lot of time and effort by Keno and myself, we created the VegasMessageBoard.com Countdown Timer many years ago. But, with the update of the board software came the idea to make it even easier to use, so contacted a developer who helped us intergrate the Countdown Timer into the user profiles. The timer features 92 graphic backgrounds with the choice of 8 fonts that can be displayed in 12 colors. The timer is always a work-in-progress, and we may be adding more options in the future. If you would like to contribute by creating a background, please see this thread. I hope you all enjoy it To create your new timer, go to the top of the forum and click on My Profile. From there, click on the Countdown Timer tab. If you have an existing timer, it will show up there. If not, click the Add New Timer link. The form will appear and you will also note it says how many timers you are allowed at one time. Some users are allowed more than 1 timer at a time. Fill out the form with the date, time, font, font color, time zone, and background of your choice. You also may leave a short message (80 characters), if you choose, which will be displayed above your timer. Click the More Backgrounds link below the backgrounds to see more than the first 28 backgrounds. After making your selections, click submit. The page will refresh and your new timer will be show on your screen.* *NOTE: If you receive an error message stating "Please delete any previous created timer to create a new one," you must click Cancel\Go Back and delete an existing timer before you can add another.
