Discussion

Mmm, so exactly when is this happening? Smuconlaw (talk) 11:14, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

How about lunch on Friday? :) --Sky Harbor (talk) 08:12, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
For me, it will be inconvenient if the meeting is held in the lunch hour of Friday - I will have to attend the remedial lessons in the morning, and I can only be able to go to the venue at 3:00 or later, making me unable to attend the meeting. Furthermore, I doesn't have plan to obtain an early leave for the lesson at the moment.--Spring Roll Conan ( Teahouse · Contributions ) 10:04, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
It doesn't have to be just one meeting: if there will be people who can't attend one meeting, we can still have another meeting. Most likely this will be on Saturday or Sunday, if people are up to it, but I'm not recommending lunch on Saturday due to the WikiWomen luncheon. We should also consider that there will be many Asian attendees this year, so organizing something shouldn't be too difficult. :) --Sky Harbor (talk) 12:19, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
An alternative to this is that let's schedule a longer session (5:30-11:00) at Y521. That way, we can probably get more things done, and we can probably ensure availability. --Sky Harbor (talk) 06:49, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, do you mean 17:30 on Saturday, 10 August? Smuconlaw (talk) 18:53, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
I meant Friday, but if you guys want Saturday, I won't complain. :) --Sky Harbor (talk) 00:09, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
For me, both Friday or Saturday night is okay. But I will suggest to notify everyone who are intended to join the meeting, so they can state that whether they are available or not. Arrangements can be made by referring their statements.--Spring Roll Conan ( Teahouse · Contributions ) 16:01, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I'm OK either on Friday or Saturday. I've created a table below so interested participants can indicate their preferred date and we can make a decision quickly. Smuconlaw (talk) 17:04, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

In order that we can figure out whether to meet on Friday or Saturday, please fill in the following table as soon as possible – by 12:00 noon on Friday, 9 August, if you can. Tick both columns if either date suits you.

Well, it is 12:06 and it seems most people have no problem with either date. Since not everyone who expressed interest has responded, can I suggest we meet on Saturday, 10 August, at 5:30 pm in case some people don't realize it is on today? Smuconlaw (talk) 04:08, 9 August 2013 (UTC)

Well, that was what was originally announced, so let's go with Saturday. --Sky Harbor (talk) 04:33, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
OK, set. I've updated the information at the top of the page. See you guys tomorrow. Smuconlaw (talk) 07:19, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
