  1. Hey guys, my shop on SMP7 is having its grand opening soon. I will be hosting an event(the details are a secret for now ;)) that will consist of friendly competition and prizes. I hope this will help boost sales and awareness of the shop as well as provide some good-hearted fun! I have asked this question in-game without much of a response, so I turn to you forum lurkers! What day do you think would be best for you to attend this event? Is there a certain time frame that is best for you(please put your timezone as well)?

    Thanks in advance! :)
  2. I'd probably say on the weekend since there's bound to be more people on. In terms of time, I'm not really sure. Just make sure it's available to as many time-zones as possible.

  3. Sunday, because most people either are free or have sympathy from their parents that they had to sit in church for 2hrs, so they get to play. In terms of time, make it like 2:30 California time, so it would be like 5:30 for East coast, and 8:30 for England. It makes it more widely available to the US players which make up the bulk of our servers.
  4. HEY! Whatever you do, just make it available to the UK too :)
  5. 8:30 is more than fair. We have 75% of the server over in the US, so if he wants more people, he should do it so that we get a good time.
  6. Is this 8:30 AM or PM we're talking about?
  7. Thanks MEINCRAVTA! However at 2:30PM Pacific time I believe it will be 11:30PM in England. Correct me if I'm wrong? If that's the case, what do you folks think about 1:00PM Pacific (10:eek:oPM England) on Sunday? That would be 3PM Eastern.

  8. Don't forget about Australia.
  9. But Australia lives so far in the future. :(
  10. I think Saturday in the afternoon or morning. people aren't at church, and are most likely free. If it is well advertised, I think whatever you're planning will be a hit. :)

  11. Thanks for the support! :) I was going to make it on Saturday but decided to put up this thread just in case. I'm glad I did because I'm surprised at how many people prefer Sunday. I'm gonna wait to see if anyone else gives any input and I'll make my decision tomorrow. I'll post a new thread about it in the Community Marketplace section. I hope you all can come! Besides, who doesn't want to earn some diamonds? ;)
  12. No problem. I was surprised at how many people chose Sunday, too. You'd think people would want to pick Saturday... Hope your event is a success! :)
  13. Saturday you can do it anytime (Cali time) from like 9AM-2PM because nobody is doing anything.
  14. This would also be a great time. :)
  15. I basically go on MC on the weekend (NZ time) cause of school
  16. That is why I live here. I know when the world ends before anyone else.

  17. That sounds like a pretty good time for everywhere.
  18. I actually chose Saturday at 1:00PM Pacific instead of Sunday. I hope that's still a good time for a lot of people! I've already made a thread in the Community Marketplace forum: Bizarre Bazaar - Grand Opening (Win Diamonds and More!)

    Hope most of you can make it! :)

  19. It's a good time for me. :)
  20. Don't do Sunday, because if it's Sunday in the US then it's already Monday in Australia. Just pointing that out. Just don't begin it before 10AM Pacific and you should be good, I tend to sleep more on weekends.
