If a Shul has an 'Omer sign that is manually changed, may someone change it before making the Berachah on the night's count?

If not, and if the solution is to change it before Bein HaShemashoth, can this be done on Shabbath for the Motzei Shabbath count?

@GershonGold Certainly the second question is not. – Double AA Jul 9 '12 at 17:49
@GershonGold, Thanks. I tried to find that one; I thought it might have been asked before. – Seth J Jul 9 '12 at 17:55
"Counting the Omer non-verbally" asks about signing (in sign language) or writing the count; this, about moving a plate into place, potentially a weaker act and certainly a different one. I'm disinclined to close as duplicate. – msh210 Jul 9 '12 at 18:08
