Ok, I couldn't find the suggestion box so I'll just drop it here.
Wouldn't it be great if there was a clear way to see what and when the upcoming event is.. well coming up? :p
The notice box follows all its practical function but wouldn't you want to see a timer on the front page or something, it's easier to spot and it's more "in your face".
Take a vote in the poll and/or share your opinion to why this is a great or lousy idea. There's also room for tech talk (why it would be easy/hard to do).
