In many of the discord servers we are all in, there are people from every timezone. Attempting to organize, for instance a time to play a game is a chore of syncing availability and time zones manually.
I have seen other ideas on the feedback section that suggest an optional timezone element in the users profile. While this is a solution, it could easily be a privacy concern.
Instead an idea is to allow timezone aware tags in chat. They would work much like the spoiler option that already exists, except they will show the time stated in your current timezone.
Below is a mockup of a sample countdown, and time tag, and the way it could look/work
This option is also much more secure if done correctly. An example implementation flow could be
- On message send, the tag is parsed and the time in the tag is converted to UTC
- On the recipients PC, the message would be parsed from UTC into the current system time
This would allow for easy scheduling without everyone being concerned where each other lives.
