I have restored timereq.com, which I mistakenly thought was using third party scripts.
The reasons I used for removing certain external links are:
- link required a flash plugin (poodwaddle.com)
- link web site fails after a few clicks (gchart.com)
- link gave incorrect times for some locations (devmatrix.ath.cx for Australia, India and others)
I left these links because they still work when all scripts are blocked (for example when a viewer is using an advertisement blocker or is using certain Linux/Unix browsers):
- timeanddate.com - requires no scripts
All except the Swiss link use, but do not require, google ads. I did not use the presence or absence of advertisments as a criteria, mainly because they all advertise, but other editors might. Ideally the article needs a link to a page that gives some history and background to world clocks. -Wikianon (talk) 09:39, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
