Countdown - make it not stick to my screen view
Although I like the looks for the footer on the website that is constantly on the bottom of my browser page while viewing this site. I have to admit, it's kind of annoying. I view this website with a netbook laptop with a 10" screen most of the time. Having that little footer in the way with no more information than just a countdown to kickoff is really a waste of valuable screen space. I'd be OK with it permanently at the bottom of the page, but not so it is glued to what I see on my browser as I scroll down the page. It's just in the way.
Other then that, keep up the good work. This is easily the best looking forum I visit on a regular basis, and is probably the only site I visit daily (aside from FB and Twitter).
