Somebody ignorant of SMFs inefficiencies, decided to post a link to JGO on a busy forum, which almost grinded the server to a halt.

To reduce the traffic, here is a silly countdown for you guys to watch: . All is fine now, thanks for the patience.

What's it counting down to o_O

Also it could have been this: http://www.mojang.com/2012/02/20/how-to-use-the-catacomb-snatch-source-code/ (down near the bottom of the post)

Oddly enough, mojang.com doesn't show up in the top referers.

Damn, Jens Bergensten, that will keep the server busy for weeks! Smiley

Ya I noticed, cool new feature anyway. Dunno what it would be used for x) I don't know I this can be avoided but on my phone the timer pulls the page down when it updates, if the timer is offscreen.

@Z-Man: Clueless Do you mean the page is scrolled every second? (it updates every second...) or did you mean that when you update the preview of your post, it scrolls down? The latter can be explained, as upon loading a countdown, I do a nasty document.write("<span id=...></span>"), which might trigger the scrolling (?), I will convert that to some DOM manipulation.

It is used in the header, to countdown to the Java4K deadline. It updates once per second, which is rather silly, but once we approach the deadline, it will be more specific.

@Riven: when the timers tick (every second) the view shifts so you can see the timer. At least on my iPhone.

EDIT: Now it's just moving to the bottom of the page every second

FYI: i didn't modify anything. So as there is a countdown on every page (the header), it would scroll, all the time, making this forum unusable.

I just grabbed the iphone of my dad, and i didn't have the problem you described...

Countdown for when time collapses into itself:

Hmm... don't know why it was just my phone. Assuming your talking about the "Java4k - 8 days to go" header at the top, I think that it's not a problem because it isn't changing every second. The only reason the timers that were running in this thread were doing it is because the text was changing as the seconds ticked down. At least... I think that's why x) only because now that the timers on this page have expired it's no longer moving down to the bottom of the page. Perhaps it's the text changing and not the actual timer?

The top post (mine) has a countdown that hasn't expired yet. (countdowns are not affected by timezones)

Your very first post in this thread? It has expired for me. It says "Deadline expired." where the countdown used to be.

Ofcourse it's still expired, it's just that it's expired for everybody.

Those who clicked right in the middle of the O of 'JGO' in the logo, got access to the vault. A few of you are now in round 2.

This forum is an autocracy. Whether you deem it fair, or whether it's fair in general, does not influence the opinion of your cute fluffy overlord, as it has its own ethics. The handful of members in round #2 will know what sacrifices have to be made, soon. All I can say it that those who retrieved the item in the vault (3 at the moment), should watch JGO on their birthday.

In layman's terms, Riven is in actuality a cute fluffy overlord cat who created all these events just so he can retrieve his ball of yarn from the vault and play with it with the "lucky" few that accessed it Grin
