This morning, I've quite accidentally discovered this question, which revealed the Consecutive Days Calendar. The calendar is a great addition, thank you, SO Team!

I have a suggestion though: Could the calendar be a bit more discoverable, please?

To wit, I've been looking at that exact text for months, and apparently the calendar has been available for several weeks now, I would never have guessed it even exists - the page gives no indication the text is somehow special, except the cursor changing to "hand" on mouseover.

I do remember reading something about "not hiding your links" - if the text is supposed to initiate an action, could it be underlined, or else somehow differentiated from normal text? (in that question, @Bryan Denny suggests "A little [ + ] beside of it would explain it well enough")

Think of it as an easter egg!

All right then. I've seen Easter Eggs in various software, but this may be the first recorded instance of a Halloween Egg :o) –  Piskvor Nov 23 '10 at 12:14
