Spring 2010 chat room games availability

Post by Jeffrey Hill » Wed Feb 24, 2010 6:59 pm

If you're interested in playing matches in the chat room this spring, please vote for the days you'll be most available. Of course, this is dependent on the days that potential readers are available.

Feel free to post anything else relevant (such as what time in the evening you'd prefer).

As for me, my evening availability is completely random, though I would not mind reading any nights I am available. Starting at 8 or 9 will probably work better for me but if I'm not reading that's not a big deal.

It won't let me choose Sunday and Tuesday, but those are my best days to read.

It won't let me select anything, but I'm free weekends & Tuesday/Thursday/Friday (preferably Friday-Sunday) to read or play.

Whoops, guess there was something wrong with the default Avalon Blue theme. It should be working for all themes now, but if anyone is using prosilver or subsilver2 and it's not working, let me know.

I'll probably be available all throughout the weekend, excluding social events. Thursday are OK days too, for the most part.

Except for Wednesdays (the days on which I usually work the most), I'm available on most days throughout the week. If we started at 8 p.m. that would be pretty convenient for me.

We could still use a few more responses if you haven't responded and are interested, but Sunday and Tuesday both look like winners with possible spontaneous games on Fridays or Saturdays. Do we want to start up with regular Sunday and Tuesday games this Tuesday (March 2)? 8:00 is my preferred start time but I'm just going to be observing or reading so it doesn't really matter all that much to me.

Please post if you can make it this Tuesday. It would really help to know who specifically can make it to know for sure if this Tuesday will be feasible. Thanks!

Ooh...I might possibly be able to. I'm coming back from a school trip sometime early-afternoon tomorrow, and depending on homework, I may be able to participate.

Unless everyone's too shy to post that they'll be able to make it, it looks like there's not enough interest tonight. :(

I might be available, depending on the time. However, would I have to stay through a whole game/some predetermined number of questions? Or is it flexible in terms of coming and going? I doubt I'll have a lot of contiguous time, but perhaps as a good 30 min break between writing essays lol.
but 8 works for me

Charles Hang is about to read another packet.

We have an awesome turnout today! If there's enough interest I'd be willing to read again on Thursday. Please post if you might be there.

I will NOT be there on Thursday. If I am, at any time, found in the chatroom before the weekend, someone please boot me. This is becoming more addictive and a better homework procrastination tool than flash games.

I've banned the nick "logic2718" from the chat room... I know you can easily bypass it but every little bit helps, I suppose. Just let me know when you want to be unbanned.

Could I be unblocked before next game? Thanks. If you don't get around to it, that's fine; I'll just make a new name for myself.
Regardless, I am so proud of not playing on Thursday and instead doing homework. So much willpower was required.

I would read if I had any packets that weren't from last year/aren't available online, but all I've got is (for some reason) an NAQT set from last year, plus whatever's on the packet archives online.

The sets I've been reading are actually available online. It's just a matter of finding something that nobody playing has heard.

I'll just forewarn everybody that my reading hiatus will probably include this upcoming Sunday as well.

We appear to now have a good deal of interest on Thursdays too; anyone willing to read then?

Does anyone else have spring break this week? More importantly, does anyone else share my sleeping patterns and would be up for games in the 11 pm - 1 am window?

My spring break is coming to a close, but I'm usually up at those times during the school week anyways, so I wouldn't mind playing (assuming somebody would be willing to read...)

I will definitely NOT be willing to read at those times (at least on Sun-Thurs, when I have to work the next day).
