I happened to have a question open at the point where a chat event in the community bulletin ended. The time indicator on the event kept on ticking, showing me how long it had been since the "upcoming event" had ended.

Would it make more sense for these to vanish from the sidebar when they were done?

  • What you see there is a timestamped div that a client side javascript routine converts to relative time - the routine runs in intervals. – Oded Jan 26 '16 at 21:14
