Re: 2014 Awards

That would work for me as well. So it wouldn't matter to me if it's 9 pm GMT or 10 pm GMT: whichever the majority prefers.

Re: 2014 Awards

If I understand correctly, the nominations are now officially closed. So, what is the next step? I think we should make a list of all nominees and then mail them, informing them that they have been nominated and tell them in which category they have been nominated. We should then also ask them if they accept the nomination. Would that work?

Re: 2014 Awards

Is it necessary for a nominee to "accept" the nomination? After all, these are awards, not jobs or official roles. I cannot think of a reason for not accepting an award...

Re: 2014 Awards

Good point. But in that case I'd still be in favor of sending out an email, if only to let those people know they have been nominated and to inform them when the award ceremony will be held, so that they can join in the chatroom for the ceremony, should they want to.

Of course we should also make a general announcement of when the award ceremony will be held for all those who are interested in joining.

Re: 2014 Awards

I now know for certain that on March 21st I have to attend a fair for my work. I will be able to attend the official award ceremony in the evening, but during the day I won't be able to log in and are thus unavailable for any award related work.

For those like me that have difficulty figuring out GMT try this: http://www.worldtimebuddy.com/pst-to-gmt-converter
Best I can figure the Ceremony at 10 pm GMT is 3 pm PST.

Re: 2014 Awards

We talked about the awards being a live chat event: shouldn't we post a link to the chat room?

Which is another way of me asking: what will be the link to the chat room?  wink

Note we're in Daylight Time here, not Standard Time.

For instance -5 is Central Time now because we're CDT. So 10PM ceremony would be at 5PM for me here.

Luckily it's also a Saturday, so everything's good.

Re: 2014 Awards

Ick... 5pm for Central?

Re: 2014 Awards

I'm clearing 2 pm on to make sure I'm around for this. Darn timezones.

Re: 2014 Awards

Thanks all for ironing out the timezone questions... *brain melts*

Regarding the AWARDS CEREMONY I presumed we could use the chat room... am I right?

Re: 2014 Awards

That would be the place. We need to spread out the word of Awards on Saturday, get it into OOC fields and one the marquee on the front page. Chatroom is accessed from the menu at the top!

Re: 2014 Awards

To clarify for US timezones this Saturday (Daylight)...

Eastern: 6pm
Central: 5pm
Mountain: 4pm
Pacific: 3pm

Re: 2014 Awards

At best I can be there maybe an hour. Have company coming in the evening.
Everyone have fun though!

Oh, and thanks for clarifying the time zones, I never understand what GMT is compared to where I live. I'm such a Luddite.

Re: 2014 Awards

None of us really understand time zones, especially with daylight savings time randomly thrown in the mix. I'm checking in at 2 pm PST just to make sure I don't miss it.

Re: 2014 Awards

Maybe there should be an award for Understanding Timezones.  tongue

Re: 2014 Awards

I see you beat me to putting the awards up on the wiki, Silent, thanks. And yes, it does need some work. I'd like to make it chronological at the very least.
