A couple of things I'm pondering.

First off, now that I have class on monday and thursday nights, I'm thinking about changing the posting day (at least for a couple of months, until the fall semester starts and I have a more complicated schedule.)

So, the options are this: Should I
A) Move posting day to wednesday until further notice
B) Keep posting day thursday unless it really becomes an issue with class
C) Move posting day to friday until further notice

Opinions, conflicts, comments anyone?

The other thing I'm pondering is making posting a twice-a-week thing. This week has shown that pretty much everyone can post within one day of the deadline... I don't know if any of you were writing that post over the course of the whole week, but, if not, twice a week shouldn't be too difficult. I don't mind a sacrifice to length and/or quality for a boost in speed...

This, as a change, wouldn't take place immediately. I probably wouldn't implement it until the next quest anyways. Question is, do you all think you can handle it if I made the change? Also, if I do change it, should it be a regular interval (i.e. every three days or every four days) or should it be fixed days (i.e. i post every monday and thursday)?

Comments, ideas, conflicts, etc?

I don't have a preference day of when you post, really. As long as you let us know if it changes from Thursday.

About the twice-a-week thing, however, I have some fairly weighty conflicts. I have to post for the EC as well, so that's more or less a twice-a-week thing for me right now. Two for Main would three-a-week on top of my work schedule (and going to school full time which I should be starting mid-way into the next quest). It's going to be really, really difficult to get done what I need to and what to worry about twice-a-week. If everyone else is fine with it, my opinion obviously won't matter, but that's how it is for me.

If we keep it one a week, I don't care which day the deadline is. Regardless of the last possible day, every day of the week will be available for posting.

I like the idea of doing it either twice a week, or every certain amount of days between GM posts. If an advancing post went up every 4 or 5 days even, it would get things moving. As it is, you post one day, and then can't do much of anything for a week.

An additional note: if I make posting twice a week, and a few people (like you, Zan) can't manage both every week, I won't count it as much against you. One post a week is the minimum, two a week would be recommended and a bonus.

What I mean is, if posting becomes twice a week and you miss one of the two for a week, it's not as bad a deal as it is if you miss a round at our current pace. Missing a full week, though, would be more detrimental.

I understand the pressures of a full time school schedule, and with work on top of it... I dunno if I'll even be able to handle it once school starts back up hardcore for me. I hope to have a job of my own by then too, so, we'll see how things go.

Other opinions?

My main opinion on that matter is that if we do move to two posts a week, they should be on set days, maybe Tuesday and Friday, or something to that effect. I don't much like every 4 or 5 days.

I don't go to college until late September, but when it does start up, I have no idea how active I can be. Then again, for all I know, I'll have even more time to post, but that seems unlikely.

Twice a week sounds all right, but as well as most everyone else has said, Full time worker + Full time student + other stuff=(for me) very limited time. I think I would be able to make the posts happen, but if I could not, then I could at least do one a week.

What if the next quest we did a trial run of twice a week(if more people say they can post that much a week). That way everyone can test how stressed their schedules will be.

As for me, I know i have class mon-thurs and I work tues, and fri-sun when school starts back. Monday is also my night class >.> so yeah xD...but I am pretty sure I could find the time the day before the deadlines haha.

I only work and do my volunteering stuff, so as long as I don't *have* to post up on a Tuesday or Wednesday I don't care when or how many times the deadlines are.
