Discussion[edit source]

What do you guys think about organizing a meetup for admins and other regular Vault members in our IRC channel this week, in order to discuss various issues regarding preparing for New Vegas and the new skin enrollment before the game's release? What day would work for you guys? Due to timezone difference, it would be best to start in the afternoon in the US/evening in Europe. Ausir(talk) 22:28, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

I tried to get it to work, but Mizzibit's server screwed up on me. Yay noobiness.
I'm all for a conference, though. Nitty Tok. 22:34, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Best to just get mIRC. Ausir(talk) 22:35, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
You're gonna have to explain this to me, man. :P Nitty Tok. 22:36, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
It's a good idea. We could discuss issues and ideas for improvement. Yes Nukey (talk) 22:40, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Would this Wednesday work for you guys? Ausir(talk) 22:38, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

I might be able to go for Wednesday, but Thursday or Friday would work better for me. Nitty Tok. 22:39, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
It would have to be after 2:45PM EST. Nukey (talk) 22:40, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Also, why not over Skype or something? Nukey (talk) 22:40, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Skype requires registration, while IRC doesn't. If you have trouble using a real IRC client, you can always use Wikia's web client, which is pretty easy to use. Ausir(talk) 22:45, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Can't be that easy to use, I couldn't figure it out. :P Nitty Tok. 22:46, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Ah, yeah, looks like Wikia's webgate is currently not working. Ausir(talk) 22:51, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
MSN, then? Nitty Tok. 22:53, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Can you try using this webgate? I think it's fairly straightforward. Just enter your nickname and #wikia-fallout channel. Ausir(talk) 22:54, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

I may be able to join, is this site right: [1], also any idea what time this occur in GMT? - RASICTalk 22:52, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

How about 8 PM GMT/3 PM EST? Ausir(talk) 22:54, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Is anyone available tomorrow? I conveniently dislocated my knee yesterday, and will not be going to school tomorrow. - Ghouly89 (Talk) 22:53, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
I can do 8PM, is the date tommorrow or wednesday? - RASICTalk 22:57, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Either day is good for me. --Anon talk 22:57, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Tomorrow is fine for me as well. Ausir(talk) 22:59, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Isn't that somewhere around 4:00 AM in Poland though? - Ghouly89 (Talk) 22:59, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
3 PM EST is 8 PM in the UK (GMT) and 9 PM in Poland (GMT+1). Ausir(talk) 23:02, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
I'll probably be available whenever (just not in the morning). 3:00 EST is good. Nukey (talk) 23:00, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Wait, GMT is General Mountain Time where I live, in Colorado (U.S.), which is 8 hours ahead of Poland time... so that's 1:00 PM for me. Alright, sounds good. - Ghouly89 (Talk) 23:05, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
I mean Greenwich Mean Time, also known as UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). Ausir(talk) 23:09, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
That's 2 Central time for me, so count me out for that. Still in school and all. Nitty Tok. 23:08, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
You can just join once you finish school. Ausir(talk) 23:09, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Well, it appears I just learned something, GMT stands for Greenwich Mean Time... We'll wait for ya, Nitty ;) But doesn't your school let out around 2 - 2:30ish? - Ghouly89 (Talk) 23:14, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
How about we move it to 4 EST/9 UTC then? Ausir(talk) 23:14, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
I'm okay with any time you propose, Ausir. The only question that stands is whether or not Wikia's "webgate" will be functional tomorrow... I can at least use that - Ghouly89 (Talk) 23:22, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Please use Freenode's webgate, which is functional. Or just get an IRC client. :) Ausir(talk) 23:30, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
I'll just use Freenode ;) Well, now I guess is a good time to see who will have Fallout:New Vegas at their disposal, for purposes of verifiying submitted information, and adding new information. I for one have it completely paid-for already, and will be playing on the 19th. - Ghouly89 (Talk) 23:34, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
no time works for me this week. Will it be possible to read the logs after the fact?

--Gothemasticator 23:38, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

I will copy them and e-mail them to you once the meeting is over. Nukey (talk) 23:43, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, Nukey!--Gothemasticator 23:54, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

How about we start doing weekly official Vault conferences every Tuesday? Ausir(talk) 23:53, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Regularly scheduled would be great.--Gothemasticator 23:54, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
Or, maybe someone with an extra, unused User-page (me :P) could copy these meetings regulary to his/her page, for others to see after-the-fact. I would be willing to do this from week to week. - Ghouly89 (Talk) 00:03, October 12, 2010 (UTC)
I'll try to be there if I can, but I work from 8AM to 4PM EDT (10 AM to 6 PM my time) so I can't guarantee that I'll be able to attend. --Kris User Hola.jpg 01:01, October 12, 2010 (UTC)

I don't know if I'll be able to join the conference 'cause I already have some plans. But 9 PM UTC is 11 PM for me so I'll try. veryblackravenTalk 06:18, October 12, 2010 (UTC)

So, can we come to a verdict on what day and what time we will hold these meetings? Nukey (talk) 18:40, October 12, 2010 (UTC)
