Date of meetup[edit]

The date shown in Meetup/Oxford/58 is provisional: the page was not created by myself, and the date chosen by 163.1.88.6 (talk · contribs) was probably picked because I had put it near the top of Meetup/Oxford/57. I had intended to wait before creating the page because I was not sure that the date was available for me. In fact, it turns out that the date might be difficult because I have been put on the rota from 10:00 until 20:00 (ten hours) on Sunday 18 February 2018, so I was going to ask around to see if another date would be convenient, and if one of them is favoured by a majority. These are the options:

  1. Saturday 17 February 2018 (third Saturday)
  2. Sunday 18 February 2018 (third Sunday, i.e. normal day)
  3. Sunday 25 February 2018 (fourth Sunday)
  4. none - skip February entirely and hope for third Sunday in March

If the decision is Sunday 18 February 2018 I will have to see what I can do about rearranging my work shift. --Redrose64 (talk; at English Wikipedia) 23:06, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi Redrose64, I am responsible for this - the people I wanted to invite are not available in the end, so please do change the date to any of the options above. Sorry again! − Pintoch (talk) 23:17, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
I am not able to do the 25th. Otherwise, any date's fine by me. Bellezzasolo (talk) 23:23, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
I have no strong preference. Mvolz (talk) 23:43, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
I will almost certainly be able to make the 25th, I'll likely be able to make either the 17th or 18th but can't be certain at this point. I have no strong preference though. Thryduulf (talk: meta · en.wp · wikidata) 00:30, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
I can probably manage any of those dates. On the Saturday the pub is likely to be crowded. Maproom (talk) 08:06, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
Hi all. I can do 25th. Fugitivedave (talk) 11:04, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, Oxford is difficult at foreseeable future. Will see all at London. Whispyhistory (talk) 13:25, 4 February 2018 (UTC)
  • OK, only two people that I messaged haven't replied yet, so taking into account Maproom's comment about Saturdays, and the fact that only one person (Bellezzasolo) can't manage the 25th, I think that Sunday 25 February will be best. We should decide on the day whether to hold the next one on 18 March or 25 March. Easter is 1 April, so it won't clash. --Redrose64 (talk; at English Wikipedia) 10:57, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
