    Please do let me know when you would prefer events to be held; I cannot promise to please everyone, but if there is a day which a considerable majority are against, I will try to avoid them. My own feelings are for Sunday and one Mid-Week day, but what do you all think?

    Also if you would care to list any events you players hold regularly, like the Auction and Chicken League, let me know here ;)

    Although you've already mentioned the auction I will post it here too. The Europa Auction is held every Wednesday at 7pm Uk time.

    And thanks for setting up the town criers to promote it this week :D

    I would like to make a suggestion concerning event invitations (even though it is not directly related to the question of date and time):

    Please consider posting invitations with clear indicators on what the event will contain. Such as in talking, fighting, special loot, etc. Yes, this means spoilers, but it might keep people that are not interested in one kind of event from ruining the fun of others out of boredom or disappointment.

    To add to this, I was thinking about the event this morning (last night GMT) while at work, and I really think a large, bolded "There will be no special items" post on a lot of these events might see some of the griefers not bothering to come.

    The day is not so much of an issue. The time is more important, well to me anyway!

    I'm going to leave it running, because as players leave and return the overall opinion may change; it's just to provide a rough guideline, and leave a space to keep me informed as to when really popular player events are being run... However global events may limit my choice; if there's an encounter like the return of Exodus say, which has to be run within a set time frame due to the global plot progressing, sacrifices will have to be made by us all ;)

    I will try and use the Royal Investigator system however to give you little adventures that run with longer limits to try and spread the content out for you all.

    As for time, weekends allow me to spread during the day, but I'm limited in real life by other working commitments. Mid-week is likely to always be GMT afternoon and evenings, except during holidays.

    And again; I can't please all of you sadly, but I will try and rally the community as best I can!
