Great idea, Neb. I'm in there now, let the discussion begin!

Yeeeeah. I keep, um, forgetting about the script. I need to be more assertive as the leader really. Hopefully these chat sessions should make it easier for me to control, we can brainstorm ideas and get some work done. Firstly, I'm going to PM everyone (except Neb and Stratman, since they're already aware of this) and ask them if they're interested in the chat session.Originally Posted by Nebuchanezzar
So now the question is: what days are good for everyone? I can be online any day after around 3:30 or so, local time.
EDIT: Everyone is PM'd, except Homer_Thompson and StrideR because their private message inboxes are full.

Sorry I missed you, Adam.
It's ok, I cleared my inbox.
I'm not sure I'l be able to do it anyway though, it'll probably be using a chat service I don't have, and this old computer is probably going to blow, if it has to download stuff like that.
I can be online any day from 3 pm EST to 9 pm EST (i'm busy past 9 for most nights).
No problem, I was just testing it out.Originally Posted by Stratman
No harm in trying, just see Neb's post and try the link:Originally Posted by Homer_Thompson

Weekends are currently best for me.
I'm free pretty much all the time at the moment.
I'm sure I don't need to remind you of this, adam r, and it's probably patronising for me to do so, but make sure you pay attention to the different timezones people are in.
I think it was agreed on earlier that the consultants would abstain from really getting involved in the chat sessions, but rather be more of editors on already written material. I still don't have the time to get involved in a chat session, but I'll still be willing to look over anything that has already been written. I do think I need to apologize that I have given no input on the script, which is mainly due to the fact figured, from constantly viewing this thread, that Adam and Neb and Thompson and the other active members were making too much progress for me to really keep track of. So yeah, no chat sessions for me, but I'm still open for consulting.
Eh, I don't really think there's any need for "consultants". It'd be more than likely that if you're not going to be involved with the production of it in a semi-dedicated way, then you're not going to be a lot of help just randomly looking over the script once everyone is done hacking it to pieces. 13 and out...I mean, all in or all out.
I've played around with the timezones a little bit, and assuming that NYC is the same as eastern standard time, then I think the best time to get a little chat thing going would be around:
If it's on a weekend, which I assume that it will be, then we can make the time considerably earlier so that poor ol AdamR and Homer_Thompson don't have to stay up too long. On the negative side, Stratman would have to get up pretty early for a weekend. So it'd be more like:
Does that sound good for everyone? Say, next Saturday night (US/UK)/Sunday morning (Aus)?
First, just let me explain that the only reason I have been MIA is because I am lazy. I will, however, rededicate myself to this project.
Secondly, those times that were just posted by Nebuchanezzar work for me.

I'm cool with that.
Yeah, I was going to say this, hence me getting rid of the categories "writers" and "consultants" on the front page, especially since the reasoning of many for remaining just as consultants was lack of messenger, which now doesn't matter.Originally Posted by Nebuchanezzar
I should be able to be on at around midnight, probably not for too long though.Originally Posted by Nebuchanezzar
A couple of other things to keep in mind regarding the chat room. It should go without saying, but use your board usernames. Also, it might be an idea to bookmark the chat room and visit it every now and then. I know things should mainly be done as a whole group, but since your show runner is likely to be on quite a lot of the time, it wouldn't be a bad idea to work on the script if there happens to be 4 or 5 of us on at once.
I'd actually be very happy to do a midnight session or even a 1 am start, I don't think I'd like to be on past 2:30am though. But I focus quite well late at night.
In actual fact, my parents are away next weekend, and I have the house to myself (in case your intrested, my other siblings have moved away, I'm the youngest of 4 children) Not that, it's really makes much difference, but It would mean I could boil coffee freely and make snacks, without fear of waking anyone up.
So next saturday would be perfect.

OK, so it's agreed, next Saturday/Sunday will do and if possible it could be the weekly time to do this. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to go on then, but I can't guarantee I'll be entirely awake though.
Yeah, whenever we're on here we could open up that chatroom and just to see if anyones in there, if we feel like it we could discuss the script, or we could just chat about nothing in particular, who knows it might help if we "got to know each other better" and by that I mean engage in group sex.
Will any of these sessions be screwed up because of Daylight Savings Time here in the U.S.? It starts on March 11 this year at 2 A.M., much earlier than previous years.
Well, since it's on Sunday, it won't affect anything this week, but we'll need to take it into consideration next week. I'm not aware of the change happening in England this weekend, but I probably wouldn't know these things anyway.
So can I just confirm that are we doing it at these times, this saturday night/sunday morning
Don't forget. I'm still going to be there, unless something drastic happens.
As daylight savings is still in effect, shouldn't Perth be listed as 8:00 AM?
Nope, that time is correct with that in effect.
I'm still in daylight savings time too. ^_^
I despise them with a passion. We should incorparate a joke about that into the episode.
You are correct. Perth doesn't usually have daylight savings time, I'm used to subtracting three hours. :silly:Originally Posted by Adam R
It does suck doesn't it, just inconvinient and not worth the hassle.Originally Posted by Nebuchanezzar
I like it, personally.
i'm confirming that i'm going to be there tonight.
