The Clock Edit
The Common Folk of any world tend to live by the cycle of the sun and the moon, by night and day. So, as you can see from our event calendar on the front page, generally most Common Folk RP-events are scheduled to coincide with a certain time period in Middle-earth - Turbine has decided that a day lasts 186 minutes or so. But how to know when that will be? I've created an Excel calendar of sorts that can help us; for example, it can tell us when sunrise is on a certain day two days from now or when gloaming is two weeks in a shot. It's only accurate when the servers continue to be up. If a server goes down and then goes alive again, I have to log in and assess the now-current day cycle. I need to enter that data into my spreadsheet (time/cycle). Until Turbine provides the time cycle via XML, this is about as good as it can get.
I will post a link to the Excel spreadsheet soon.--Common Folk 21:32, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
