Group chats this week (08/09-12/09)

Hey everyone,

We're trying a new thing where we do group chat announcements weekly rather than daily.

This is partly to be more efficient - creating a whole new discussion every day saying almost the same thing feels a bit excessive. It's also to give everyone a heads up of what's happening in the week, which has the bonus of being particularly helpful for newcomers who aren't familiar with the full schedule.

We also won't be including who's modding in these announcements. This is mainly because volunteer teams naturally shift around during the week, and updating this post with every change would be a bit too time consuming and not really worth it. In theory, the mod team also shouldn't influence whether you come to a session, so it doesn't feel like necessary information to include.

Separate threads will still be posted for Support Circle.

Feel free to tell us what you think. We'll be trying this for a few weeks to see how it goes. :)

----
All chats are 8-9:30pm. This week, we have:

Sunday 8th
General Chat

Monday 9th

Tuesday 10th

Wednesday 11th

Go here for the full schedule. :)

    I think it's a good idea, saves a lot of time for the staff too, without having to edit threads if a different mod has to step in or it changes.

    I agree with @Jellyelephant unplanned change is really unhelpful and I like to know who’s modding so I am prepared otherwise it’s a suprise and I don’t like surprises 😂
    You have a purpose.

    @Mike You might want to relook at the title.
    So salaam worthy friend. Come back soon! That's the end.  Till another Arabian night! A whole new world, a new fantastic point of view. No one to tell us no, or where to go, or say we're only dreaming. A whole new world, with new horizons to pursue. I'll chase them anywhere, there's time to spare. Let me share this whole new world with you. A whole new world, that's where I'll be.

    I think its a good idea. Sounds easier for you.

    It doesnt bother me and dont see any reason i would not like the idea. Never 100% whos going to turn up anyways and mods can change even from the post. & idm who ever. 
    I've learnt two people can look at the exact same thing and see something completly different.

    Thank you for the feedback everyone! We're aware this is quite a bit change to how we used to post our chat announcements and we'll make sure to have a read through all of your feedback and review how this has been working in a few weeks. If you have any more feedback on this, let us know :)

    If i'm allowed to make a suggestion, i do think it would be nice if the mods could be included as i know thats important for some users, otherwise it looks good :)

    I think it’s irrelevant which mods are there, they’re all as supportive as another. It’s busier when it’s certain mods, I think it’s better not to know, it shouldn’t make a difference really.

    I agree with @Laine, I always liked to check the chat thread to find out who was modding just so I knew - I got used to it not being a surprise.

    Though, it seems like it will be more convenient for the staff which is always a good thing :)
