When should the Carcassonne Central Chatroom Event be?
« on: May 10, 2016, 05:59:36 AM »
Carcassonne Central is a global community and we try best to cater for everyone!  We seem to have quite a few new members looking for games, but I'm not sure how successful we've been scheduling games with them!

I'd really like to get the weekly games going again by scheduling an online chatroom event, maybe 3-4hours over one weekend where we can all try to join.  It's quite possible that timezones will overlap - perhaps we can get a 24hour gaming event!

Timezones are a big concern, I'd like to see if we can determine a good 'block-of-time' for everyone to try and join the chatroom and initiate some games.  This will give a target for new members, perhaps without the experience of setting up games in JCloisterZone or Yucata.

If it's successful we can make it a regular occurrence, perhaps once a fortnight or once a week.  I suspect we'll find different times suitable in different timezones, but this  means our global community and people who come to the site aim to join a game or get help.

Polls are all the rage at the moment: I've created a poll which broadly speaking covers our 3 primary Time Zones over a weekend Friday-Monday:  America, Europe, New Zealand.

Roughly speaking, the Afternoon in America, is the Evening in Europe Morning, which is Early Morning the next day in New Zealand and the cycle continues between each phase.

I appreciate some of you work at the weekends or have other commitments, so it may be difficult.  This poll is a rough attempt to determine a reasonable time to play!  If the weekend is out of bounds for you: there is a 'None of the Above'  vote.  I usually find, I've left a glaring hole in my list of choices, usually Asparagus finds them first so: there's also an option just for you  :(y)  ;D

I've allocated everyone 3 votes:

Please pick two good times for you (at a weekend).
with the 3rd vote select your timezone.

I'm hoping we'll get a pretty good idea of when the best 'block-of-time' to schedule our online-event for everyone, and it should give us a good idea of the numbers of participants in case we need to schedule two-events!

Here's a helpful timezone map:

Thanks for letting us know Halfling - I suspect we'll end up with a mid-week event too at some point.

Guilty. Have to say I read the main post diagonally. Sorry.  :-[ :-\
I'm in Europe (GMT) by the way.

Weekends are family time for me too, with the exception that once the kids are in bed it usually becomes Facebook time for Mrs_danisthirty so I've voted for Saturday and Sunday evenings Europe time. I think.

I know it's far too exciting to click all those buttons!  You should be able to go back and edit your vote, if you've not done so already!

Not really seeing any edit vote buttons.

There we go, I forgot to tick the box to let people change their vote - Sorry about the confused caused there - you may update your votes now.

So far it seems Friday or Saturday evening European time is the 'most' ideal.
