    Ok, I don't know about you, but I have become kind of tired looking at all of the triple digit figures for most online at one time.

    I think we need at least 1,000.

    I think we should schedule a date and time sometime soonish like within the next couple of days, but with enough time to get the word out.

    When do you think it should be?

    OFFICIAL TIME AND DATE- 8:30 PM EST SATURDAY JANUARY 17

    Here is a Time Zone Map for all who might need it:

    [​IMG]

    8:30 Eastern
    7:30 Central
    6:30 Mountain
    5:30 Pacific

    Please help spread the word about this (Signature Lines Possibly)
    It won't work if people don't know about it.

    This would be the perfect time for all of you "lurkers" out there to actually join and be a part of this. [​IMG]

    This could be an amusing game! [​IMG]

    Just an FYI, we've set records for the most members ever the past two Sunday nights. Perhaps make it a Sunday night?

    Okay, but you guys take responsibility if you crash the servers! [​IMG]

    If you're gonna try it, do it on a weekend! [​IMG]

    Okay, who's in? I vote for next Saturday night so Nifty can fix the servers if we grind them to a halt...

    What time should we "meet" to attempt a new record?

    (We need to make sure the time is posted in Eastern, Central, etc., so that everyone comes at the same exact time!)

    Well, I usually get on BYC after I eat while my dinner digests.

    What about like 6-7:00pm? Of course that is AZ time, so it would be 7-8:eek:opm central, and 8-9:00pm eastern.

    Of course, If not these times, I will just have to stop what I am doing and log on. Got my priorities, you know. [​IMG]

    I think 6-7 mountain time (AZ) is a good idea. Then the East coasters can be on between 8-9 (after kidsd are in bed but before it's too late) and the Pacific coast people are on from 5-6- early, but not outrageously.

    The records seem to have always been broken around 6pm eastern time... so anytime around there would probably be best. Many users would be on anyways.
