When shall we have Round 82?
Thank you to the small but stalwart mod team - naemi, a_phoenixdragon, idlewild_, me (ylla), starry_wolf (who did some epic usurpation), evelyn_b, plus a special guest usurpation by lolmac, tag creation by dbskyler, and an honourable mention to bookblather, who would have modded if I was able to count!
That's it for 2016 - have a good Christmas/New Year/rest/other festivities as appropriate, and we'll hopefully meet again in 2017!
(P.S. If you happen to see a lost hour 7 or 24 anywhere, it might be ours - and if you've lost an hour 41, we seem to have an extra one.)
If you're available to mod, please comment and let us know :-)
When will we have round 81?
P.S. Can I have a new tag, please?
I've covered what I could - mostly the European daytime hours - partly because I am craving stability and the knowledge that someone should be there to welcome me, and partly because those are the ones that tend to become a single-handed marathon in a free-for-all.
There are slots available for usurpation - if that isn't exciting enough for you, it may be possible in other hours but (as it says on the sign in our printroom explaining how to remove things from the printer queue) I am not responsible for any altercations that may occur! :)
I wasn't clever enough to do the thing with the names - and apologies if I have lost or misplaced your Pretentious Title.
( Spot the ErrorCollapse )
I'm not appointing myself in charge - anyone is welcome to make up the schedule, or decide to do without - I'm just one of the people who happen to be currently in the afternoon rather than the early morning...
However, if you would like me to make up a timetable, then mods please comment with your availability by this time tomorrow (4pm GMT, 11am EST, 8am PST, etc.) - I can post a list then, and hours unclaimed at that stage will be free for all unless claimed in comments. (I'll be away from just after that until some point on Saturday morning, my time - so someone able to make a first post would be especially useful.)
Please, if you want a round this month, have one. I'll look in if I can.
There was no October round because I more or less lost October: my wife's mother went into hospice care. She's been failing rapidly (dementia), so it was not a surprise, but it was unexpected. By the time I emerged, October was almost over. The funeral is this coming weekend.
And now, it's November, which means Nano, which means (I trust) that we need a round even more!
When shall we have Round 80? (The Sequel!)
When will we have round 80?
When will we have round 79?
Hour 12 is 7 am Sat EDT, noon BST, 1 pm CEST
Hour 24 is 7 pm Sat EDT, midnight BST, 1 am Sun CEST
Hour 36 is 7 am Sun EDT, noon BST, 1 pm CEST
Open for bidding now!
What kind of schedule should we have?
Personally, I've really enjoyed the usurp-a-thons, but I don't know if I'm in a minority or not.
Round 77 will start in 7 hours!
As with the last round, I'll start it off, and then it's a free-for-all. If anyone wants to
usurp mod who has not done so before, ping me and I will make sure that you're able to post.
Who is up to the challenge? Maybe we can get the ninja penguins to fetch a LOT of ice . . .
