Hey guys!

Remember the AWESOME Live Twitter Q&A event from Community Love Week?! http://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/41491

I am in the process of planning a monthly Twitter event for everyone to interact with GameSalad staff directly and get their questions answered. The only question left is- What time is best for you?

    It will be hard to decide, to choose the right time for people from different time zones.

    I vote for 10 AM because in my time zone it's about mid afternoon. I can manage for 5/6 PM but not 1 PM because it's dinner time :)

    Last time we did it at 6pm- which seemed pretty good for people in the US to be out of their day jobs and available for tweet chit chatting with us.

    I am completely up to do whatever works best for you guys. So, if you want the chance to ask us direct questions- leave us your input on this poll and we will do our best to accomodate your preferences!

    I think 5pm or 6pm so that school and day jobs will be over when this goes on.

    I voted for 5pm but 6pm would be good too.

    That's a great point! Thanks for your input @LeonardDeveloper

    I agree with @leonardeveloper
    Although I have to say I am self employed and for someone in gmt with a regular job 2 hours later might be better.

    Agree - 4pm is great if you don't work, but sadly I haven't managed the dream of supporting myself solely on game development quite yet. 1pm cst = 7pm gmt so those UK folk with day jobs can join in too :)

    Regarding work - We're not really going to find one international time when the Europeans and the American's aren't working, So 10am is probably the most suited IMHO, With that you catch all of America & Ireland, Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Russia, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Northern Ireland, Much More
    And 1pm CST won't work; Because thats getting late for the majority of Europe thats GMT+3, GMT+4, Also 10am CST also includes some Countries in Asia such as;
    Shanghai, China at 11 (Bit Late)
    Sydney, Australia; 11:00 Am
    Japan, : 9:30 am

    You see after, A quick analysis 10:30 am is the time that is best suited internationally,

    @laurensalad Is this time for webinars as well?
    Cheers,
    Jack

    Or they could make an exception to THEIR working hours and make the event on a weekend. So everyone is happy. Well, maybe not everyone but at least we loyal customers are :D

    Over the next few months try 10am, 1pm and 6pm and see how it pans out numbers wise. Where I live most are middle of the night anyhow ;-)
