Countle is the home for countdowns. The site was created for the time zone bot to host countdowns for it. The time zone bot and Countle together make it easier to know when a certain event happens. In the Internet people use different time zones and live in different areas. It's difficult to change times to different time zones and take into account daylight savings etc. Which is why I created Countle and the Time zone bot, to make it easier.
/u/timezone_bot is a Reddit bot that parses new posts and comments looking for times with time zones. The bot then tries to make sure that the found time is for today and not for some other date. After that it calculates the difference between the found time and current time. Posts a comment with the time difference and a link to this website where people can see the active countdown.
