To celebrate the launch of our Discord server, I'm hoping to have a live chat party this weekend (basically, where members can stop by the voice chat in the server, have fun and get to know everyone!)
Choosing a time is difficult because we have members all over the world. However, most of our members seem to be located in the US, UK, and Australia, so I have listed those times in the poll. Obviously, it's nearly impossible to find a time that will work for *everyone* and not be inconvenient for any particular time zone, and this poll does favor US time zones a bit as that's where most of our staff are based, but rest assured that even if you can't make the live party you are welcome to chat on the server at any time and maybe even host your own events as well!
If you'd like to attend, please select ALL days/times that you are available this weekend (don't forget to pick the day, too!) We'll go with majority rules on this one.
*Please note that for Australian times it will be listed as the following day. So if you select you're available Saturday, that will be Sunday Australian time, and if you select Sunday, it will be Monday Australian time.
The first option is the only one that makes much sense, the rest shaft any European/Africans. Though that might just be me getting old.....
I agree -- GMT seems to very much get the short end of the stick especially if 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. are STARTING times! Staying up *until* 1 or 3 in the morning is one thing, but then until 4 or 5 or longer depending how long the party goes -- or having to miss out? On the flipside, if you're not a baker, most people probably don't want to wake up *at* 1 or 3 (or earlier to be functional by go-time.)
What about these options?
Noon PST / 3 pm EST / 8 pm GMT / 7 am AEDT 9 pm PST / midnight EST / 5 am GMT / 4 pm AEDT
(5 a.m. is still early but it's not quite as inhuman, LOL. )

Yeah, it’s incredibly difficult to find something that works for BOTH Australia and UK (it would be super early for one and super late for the other) Its kind of late to add additional options to the poll now BUT if people want to come early or stay late they can do that too - the channel is open 24/7! And if any of our members outside of the US want to host a party at a time more convenient for them, they are more than welcome to do so and we can pin the post
