That’s fantastic to hear! Can you give your availability on the doodle poll on the post above?

Thanks for stepping up!

Working on it. Can you give me an idea of how many meetings would be expected per week?

The doodle poll is just to determine the first meeting date. I made a whole bunch of times available in a hope it would provide flexibility for timezones, working hours and so forth. Appreciate it’s a bit overwhelming!

Teams can then decide how often the working groups need to meet. Some might meet once a week, others maybe fortnightly or even monthly.

It depends really on the projects underway, and therefore how often meetings need to happen. It’s super flexible and open for discussion at this stage!

Not sure if this is a default setting that can be adjusted by you, but there were over 90 slots to be marked and Doodle checked them all green for me by default. It didn’t give me an obvious or easy way to clear them. So that was somewhat user-unfriendly. :wink:

Urgh! I use the calendar mode, so not sure it shows the same. I had only done a week and a half but we were delayed getting the blog post out, hence more slots! Sorry for the hassle, I’ll see if I can change any settings!

I’m willing to help out and learn more about marketing.

Hey! I would like to help wherever I can :slight_smile:

I could help tanslating/spreading everything into spanish -> Spain & LATAM areas.

I’ve chosen Thursday 21st at 3pm as the best option from those giving availability.

I guess that’s 3 pm LONDON time :slight_smile:
-> ok, I’m in!

I’d be very interested in helping the community with marketing and raising awareness.

I’m on Pacific Standard Time (UTC-8) so a little later would be better, if possible.

@luislago @Prodigitude you both have 1800hrs UK time marked as ‘if needs be’ on Thursday 21st November, and @ekke @floris I don’t have your availability.

Would you be able to make that time (check in your timezone here) so that we could involve @mike-accentdm in the call?

sorry, doesn’t work for me - 3pm gmt is in fact the latest option on the 21st.
But I’d love to see @mike-accentdm on board, so let’s figure out something!

Normally I would prefer anything after 16:00 UTC but if 15:00 UK time is the only time that works for everyone else, I can do it.

Hi Ruth and all. Sorry I said that I could attend but I won’t, unexpected meetings came in this week.

@rcheesley Can you confirm if we’re on for 13:00 UTC on Nov 21?

Let’s go for the original time of 1500hrs UTC. I will record the call in the event that people can’t attend.
