Turn on time warnings in zen mode


#1

Is there a way to get visual time warnings in zen mode? I use my phone to play at times, and I find zen mode way easier to use in that context. But by default there are no visual warnings that your time is running out, and I’ve been surprised by a time-out loss several times now.

I emphasize visual because I also keep the sound muted; I actually have no idea whether there are audible warnings in zen mode!

I suppose it would be more prudent to call it “big picture” mode and leave sound/warning/whatever to the user instead of calling it zen mode and evoking ideas of instant peace and quiet.


#3

I’m even fine with the implied peace and quiet of “zen mode.” And I don’t particularly like watching the clock most of the time – it feels like distracting clutter. But if I’m about to time out I want to know!

It does seem like something that would be easy enough to make user-configurable…

Greasemonkey? Whatever its latest incarnation is called.

Of course you can just improve the relevant OGS UI code on github and do a something request so they just have to merge.
