    Maybe even something like:
    For every reaction on the post the stream end timer will be increased by 1min.

    Stream ends in 06:12:45!
    🙃♥️😁😍🙂😱❤️🔫🤦🤔

    please!!!!!!!!!!!!! this would be so useful. is there anyway to embed a timer from another website? like i found a timer on another site (little annoying to use and setup but not to to bad) and it has an embed code. is there anyway to put the embed code into chat and it pop up the timer?

    This can already be done by doing

     

    <t:unixtimestamphere:R>

    So it does work, but its meh at best. 

    What i think everyone is talking about is having one that goes like this:

    Giveaway in 6 hours 15 minutes

    (person who reads the post 4 minutes later will see a countdown timer in the chat)

     

    It could also include @ mentions are the end of the timers to let everyone know. 

    There is a bot that edits messages every few seconds but it would be better with something as big as a gif that had a timer on it that didnt start and stop when you entered or left that channel.

    You can use unixtimestamp[.]com and select when you want the "countdown" to end. Hit convert and copy the first sting of numbers. Go back to discord and type

    <t:[CTRL+V or number]:R>

    resulting in (for example)

    <t:1626463200:R>

    which displays as

    in 2 minutes

    Hit enter and the timestamp/"countdown" will appear, similarly to how an exposed spoiler displays.

    Is there documentation for a list of inline commands? because I've only recently found out about <t:timestamp> and <t:timestamp:R>, and both are really useful. I'm wondering if there are others.

    @wralokk, it currently doesn’t work.
    We’re trying to get them to add the feature.

    Original post was 8 months ago.

    Would kill for this. Even a bot or third-party widget that does this would be spectacular

    I think that's a good idea but only for bots.

    This would definitely make life easier and should be very easy for Devs to add.
