Proposed date and time

We can use this section to add suggestions, bearing people's availability in mind.

How about an opening gambit of Wednesday 6th June? At 23:00 UTC? This doesn't seem to fit with Historybuff's avilability - how "flexible" is he? :-) Also, to note that this would be the morning of Thursday 7th June for people in UTC+8 or thereabouts.. Cormaggio 09:34, 22 May 2007 (UTC)
UTC+8 6/7 7:00am is fine for me, thx Cormaggio's suggestion. How about other guys?--Foxkaworus 08:42, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Do we have to meet in the air again to decide the detail a/v stuff? Cos' our devices are almost ready! --Foxkaworus(tim)
I suggest you bring this up on the mailing list - I doubt that everyone interested is following Recent Changes here.. Cormaggio 08:45, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
Yup i would support more mailing list communication instead of an IRC meeting as the time differences are a bit inconvenient.--Markie 08:52, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
Well, I actually meant to organise an IRC meeting by mailing list. :-) Or at least point the mailing list afresh to a particular page on-wiki... Cormaggio 13:57, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
