First I'm also including the sfd-discuss list as I am not sure last year
countdown translators were later added to the localization list.
The SFD countdown is actually ready for usage in English event though it
will only start to count down from 99 days (in 7 days). We are therefore
informing translators of 2011 and also people willing to add a new
language that translation can start right now.
All the instructions are available on the wiki at this page:
For those who already want to add the countdown on their
page/blog/website the code is also the same as last year (we've chosen a
smaller size image this year) and has the same support for time zones.
So if for example you're living in Paris (GMT+2/UTC+2 that would be)
then the code to add is:
border="0" width="160" height="90" alt="Celebrate SFD with us on
Of course you can also run the code from your website if you want and
customize it to your liking. Full code available here:
and you'll need to add a cron job to run it every 15 minutes if you want
to support all time zones. Else every day at 1am is probably fine.
