I was wondering if anyone may be interested in setting up a time to meet up in chat once a week?

It could be a good way for active members to get together and bounce ideas off eachother. And for newcomers to the community to catch us all together and pick our brains.

I know it could be a little tricky finding a time that works for everyone being that we are all in so many different time zones. But I think it is worth a try anyways.

If your interested post a time, your time zone and what day would work best for you. We can go with what works for the majority.

Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I'm pretty flexi with my time (midday UTC to 3 or 4 a.m. the next morning), so I'd be prepared to wait and see what time is chosen and try to fit it into my not-so-busy day!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Greetings,

I'm interested. Mondays or Tuesdays from 7am till 12 pm central time. I think that is -6 UTC making it 1 am till 6 am if I'm right.

Like ocPortal? Want to thank Chris and gang somehow? Then help out in the chat room! It really needs your help! Just open it in a tab everytime you open your web browser, and when you hear a "ding", check it out!

Wow, I never realized just how many time zones there are around the world. I found a neat little tool that could be helpful to us.

This is a great initiative Brian and I would like to participate, but I really suck at typing in chat gatherings, so I wouldn’t be very useful and comfortable with such a venue. I would prefer using a live voice tool such as Teamspeak, popular with gamers the world over to meet online.

Hi,

Great idea. I never know in advance when I can, but if I know the time it's happening I will be there as long it is not at night most of the time.
There where times I was so much online and I typed so much that I needed a bucket of water to cool the keyboard O_o . Those times are past but I still like to chat so once in a while. So see you guys ….

Greetings Puran

I've been popping in on Tuesdays for the past two weeks now, and I don't see anything really going on (with the exception of Chris helping someone.. man he's busy). So is this thing a no go?

Welcome aboard, Andy.

Brian is the driving force behind this effort. I haven't participated - yet - because my dinner gets in the way.

I'm sure he will respond to your question.
