    Is this not supported? I seem to be completely unable to store a duration in a variable unless I state that duration explicitly in the skript;
    Code (Skript):
    1. command /duration <string>:
    2.     trigger:
    3.         set {_old} to now
    4.         wait 5 seconds
    5.         set {_time} to arg 1 parsed as time period
    6.         message "%difference between {_time} and difference between {_old} and now%"
    Try this with 3 seconds as your first argument; It should return "2 seconds"
    I've also attempted to parse it as duration and timeperiod
    It seems that it's unsupported, but I figured I'd check here to see if it's simply me not knowing about a syntax or something.

    For reference, the following skript does work as expected, which confirms that variables can definitely store durations:

    Code (Skript):
    1. command /durationfixed:
    2.     trigger:
    3.         set {_old} to now
    4.         wait 5 seconds
    5.         set {_time} to 3 seconds
    6.         message "%difference between {_time} and difference between {_old} and now%"
    Would greatly appreciate any help!

    Hey, I MAY be wrong, but i don't think you can use <string> in this case
    What are you typing after /duration when you run the command?
    What is the error you are getting?

    Try parsing it as a 'timespan'.

    Also, what errors are you getting?

    This works:
    Code (Skript):
    1. command /duration <int>:
    2.     trigger:
    3.         set {_old} to now
    4.         wait 5 seconds
    5.         set {_time} to "%arg-1% seconds" parsed as timespan
    6.         message "%difference between {_time} and difference between {_old} and now%"
    but you have to wait 5 seconds for it, and if you don't want that you can just use this easier script:
    Code (Skript):
    1. command /duration <int>:
    2.     trigger:
    3.         set {_old} to 5 seconds
    4.         set {_time} to "%arg-1% seconds" parsed as timespan
    5.         message "%difference between {_time} and {_old}%"
