    Alright, let's go for:


    Ok, last time we failed, but, we shall try again [​IMG].

    Last time, it may have been too short of a notice,

    Last time we did not get enough publicity for this

    Last time, we didn't do it, but this time, we will.

    We need to work on getting the word out, putting notices in signature lines, and starting a thread in the Random Ramblings Section

    Also, we may want to set this on a Sunday, and, maybe later.

    Please, share your thoughts, we can do this,

    When do you think it should be?

    How can we spread the word?

    First off, fix your sig for the next attempt. Also, you need to keep the dates and time right up front - I was confused as to what time it actually was supposed to be. I thought it was 9, but it was 8, or was it 8:30? [​IMG] I logged on at 8:40 and at that time there were 439 on board, but only 250 or so were members, the rest were guests! It went up as high a 469, I think, but still, way too many guests in that count.

    Make sure to make it clear what time zone you're setting the time on, that way the rest of us can adjust.

    Sunday at 9 on the east coast - hmmmm, I'll have to do it while watching Desperate Housewives, my bad TV show I watch faithfully [​IMG]

    Well, we're at 525 online right now without even trying, so you'll see that Sunday evenings are probably a good day / time to shoot for!
