Default Staff meetings

If you've been following this thread, you may have seen me bring up the idea of staff meetings. The first one will be held tomorrow, Friday the 4th of January 2013, at 23:00 in the UK, midnight in Central Europe, 18:00 on the US East Coast, 15:00 on the US West Coast. You can look up your own time zone here. Everyone is welcome to attend and make contributions, though only staff need to say if they can or can't make it. The location is the #TLS IRC channel, which you can find here.

If nobody objects, I'll chair the first meeting. It might be better if one of the admins takes over for future meetings. Here's the agenda:

Meeting #1 - January 2013
Chair: Flintlock
Attending: Flintlock, Cthulhu, Shademp, Prince Lex, Alex Strife
Possibly attending: Rory Williams, Fangu, Danseru-kun, Tennyo
Not attending: Hawkeye, Dana Scully, X-SOLDIER, Thor
  1. Opening of the meeting
  2. Announcements
  3. Reminder of what happened at the previous meeting
  4. How TLS is doing
    - Site traffic?
    - Forum stats?
    - Social networks
  5. Events on TLS in the past month
    - TLS Awards
  6. Events that will happen in the next month
    - Dissidia Project?
  7. Any other business
    - Ideas for future events
    - Suggestions, complaints etc
  8. Next meeting
  9. Closing of the meeting

I'll invite Alex Strife and Danseru-kun in case either of them want to discuss the Dissidia Project or Tumblr respectively.

I hppe to see you all there!

I will be at work, so... Maybe I'll be able to show up, but I'm not certain. Brilliant idea though!!

I should be back home by 6pm, but an old classmate wants to meet up tomorrow and I have no idea how much time we'll be spending together, so I may not end up making it for the entire meeting after all. Just a heads-up.

I think this is 5pm for me. I'll try to be there, but in the middle of the day like that I'm just not sure.

I have a business meeting around that time. It would be cool if we can keep a log of the conversation, so those absent can read what was said later on.

Btw, high five to Flint for the idea and effort.

Work was really quiet today, so (knock on wood) I think I'll definitely be present for the whole thing : )

It might be a good idea to try to schedule a second meeting that can incorporate as many of the people who couldn't make the first one as possible.

The conversation log will be posted, along with a summary of what was discussed if the log is too long.

Hmm, not a bad idea. If you don't mind, I think I'll leave it up to one of you North Americans to organise that, because whatever time you come up with will be in the middle of the night for me and I won't be able to make it.

I've said this a few times before, but timezones really suck, don't they?
