This stuff is in alpha now. Or will be in next general release.

New timer features
1. Countdown text/audio can now be added to timers, both personal and broadcasted
2. Timers can now be looped indefinitely or until canceled. They also auto terminate when EndCombat fires for any active boss mod as well so any loops started mid fight will only last until fight end.

Old commands which have not changed

Starts a one time timer for self no one else sees

/dbm timer <sec> <text>

Starts a one time timer that is sent to whole raid if you have promoted status. Note: This will be disabled in LFR.

/dbm broadcast timer <sec> <text>

New commands

Starts a one time timer for self no one else sees that now also includes countdown audio/text

/dbm ctimer <sec> <text>

Starts a one time timer for whole raid if you have promoted status that now also includes countdown audio/text. Note: This will be disabled in LFR.

/dbm broadcast ctimer <sec> <text>

Starts an infinite loop timer for self that no one else sees.

/dbm ltimer <sec> <text>

Starts an infinite loop timer for whole raid if you have promoted status. Terminated by sender or when fight ends. Note: This will be disabled in LFR.

/dbm broadcast ltimer <sec> <text>

Starts an infinite loop timer for self that no one else sees that also includes countdown audio/text

/dbm cltimer <sec> <text>

Starts an infinite loop timer for whole raid if you have promoted status that also includes countdown audio/text. Note: This will be disabled in LFR.

/dbm broadcast cltimer <sec> <text>

Terminates ANY timer loop created by ltimer or cltimer

/dbm timer endloop

Additional Notes:

1. Like any former custom timers, any sender can be ignored to prevent harassment with feature.

2. As noted above, loop functions are disabled in LFR because there is no good reason to use them there. The loop functions are intended for the personal use or organized raid use and not trolling people in LFR.

3. If you don't like either the countdown audio or countdown text, these new additions honor your pull/combat timer settings. This way, if a raid leader prefers to broadcast ones with countdowns, you can disable the counts so incoming "ctimer" act like "timer"

4. You can disable the "x sent you a timer" message in General Message options. Note, you won't be able to ignore that sender unless you re-enable this message since that's where ignore button is.

5. Loops are controlled by sender. The SENDER must terminate loop. Also, only one loop per sender, however you can have two different senders do two different loops.
