Say, I'm GMT -4, so that would make the meetings at 4:30am! Are there any meetings during different hours?

Actually it will make it 4:30 p.m. I think it should be stated that the meetings start at either 8:30 p.m. or at 20:30 so there is no more ambiguity.


Also here are the time zones I have got so far. These all consider Daylight/ Summer Time.

The study group will meet [utc]Saturday 2007/06/16 20:30[/utc].

I don't think they are relevant so no need to put them. Unless you think they are relevant?

And thanks for all of that. Though we still need the other to answer to be able to set a good time for all.
To those who don't know, Xurma can't be present at the time of the meetings, so we are trying to change the time. Are there others in these situation so far?

Edit:

I agree with this. But not 20.30. Most people from USA (speacially younger people) don't understand this system. So i'll put 8.30 pm in the chatroom.

Coco-san said she didn't think they were needed either. So I shall not have them on the list.

Your list is good enough. Well organized! Very good job, Valatuda-san, Sei-san. :) Both of you are very helpful.

As you know, the OP of this thread haven't visited since 24th May.
I guess it might be better that Valatuda-san (or Sei-san) create a new thread. And then put the member list on the first post so that you can update the member list easily. ( makes sense?)

If it was not good idea to you, please ignore this.

I am not too certain if this person has joined or not.

Regarding this person, s/he said her/his time zone is 0.
I could not understand what it meant because we haven't got reply from her/him. ;)

meh, put timezone info, and use 24 hour/day format.... the U.S. people need to learn that 20:00 is 8:00 p.m.

and timezone 0 == GMT/UTC timezone... there are people who do live in same timezone as UTC, they are timezone +/- 0, or just timezone 0.

to the east of TimeZone 0 is TZ+1, to the west is TZ-1, but the people who are on the same longitude as Grenwich, England are TZ+0 or TZ-0 or just TZ0.

stick to 24-hr military time, 08:00PM == 20:00. and stick to giving time at UTC, ... it's the only way to give an actual specific time... and learning to understand UTC time is a great benefit to users. years later, they will be able to understand that 22:00 UTC is 10PM UTC and XXX Local Time.

you're learning a foreign language, learning a Universal Time Coordinate System is child's play compared to the difficulty of learning another language.

Wow it never occured to me that I could get recognition of my Japanese knowledge and take the JLPT test until this exact moment. Looks like I'll be taking the 四級 test in December as well^^ I will be attending these meetings to help, and learn a bit as well. I'm sorry I wasn't any help with gathering materials for tomorrow's meeting, but I will definitely help now that I know where this thread is (complete forum noob Σ(・ー・; ) ). I'll see you all tomorrow for some fun and 日本語^^ レッツ ゴー!!
