First comment[edit]

Geochron links here but this has virtually nothing to do with a geochron, and does not describe it at all. Geochron needs its own article.

linkspam[edit]

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 third party javascript
  • 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
  • timereq.com - requires Javascript
  • world-clock.info - requires Javascript but does give correct times as far as I can see
  • www.fhs.ch - requires Javascript

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)

Jens Olsen[edit]

I've added a note about Jens Olsen's World Clock; a search for it might arrive here, but despite the name it's an astronomical clock not a world clock. Moonraker12 (talk) 14:14, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
