LFP6: Alright, hey everyone! It's time for this week's Eternacon planning chat  [8:00 PM]

LFP6: I will need someone to help by posting the chat log once we're done  [8:02 PM]

LFP6: Johan, weren't expecting you tonight, but looks like you're in chat. Available to look at some stuff, or no?  [8:07 PM]

Zama: I'll say something just so you know chat is working- Hi!  [8:17 PM]

LFP6: Hey Zama  [8:19 PM]

Zama: How's it going?  [8:21 PM]

LFP6: Not bad  [8:29 PM]

LFP6: On vacation, so chilling out a bit :slightly_smiling_face:  [8:30 PM]

Zama: I hope not in Texas  [8:32 PM]

LFP6: No, gladly  [8:33 PM]

LFP6: Feel terrible for those there though  [8:33 PM]

Zama: for sure!  [8:34 PM]

cynwulf28: hello, just arrived [8:41 PM]

LFP6: Hey Cyn! [8:42 PM]

cynwulf28: I missed last week as I was driving around the country, but I'm back home for school (in full swing for myself) [8:42 PM]

cynwulf28: @lfp6, did you make any changes to the schedule/agenda since when you posted last week? [8:50 PM]

LFP6: No, I have ot [8:51 PM]

LFP6: *not [8:51 PM]

cynwulf28: alright. I know that in the Invitation there was a section for such a thing. I'll try to incoporate it. Also, is the registration form to be included with the invite, or is this only online? [8:52 PM]

LFP6: The schedule is still incomplete though  [8:53 PM]

cynwulf28: of course, a head start I thought :slightly_smiling_face:  [8:54 PM]

LFP6: Sure!  [8:54 PM]

cynwulf28: say, is the registration form ready to go, i.e., if i wanted to fill it out and submit it?  [8:54 PM]

LFP6: I'm planning on including the registration form n the news announcement that will be posted about the official time and place being set and such, which will also go out in an email to those who filled out the form  [8:54 PM]

cynwulf28: ok  [8:55 PM]

LFP6: The invite packet goes out after people have registered  [8:55 PM]

cynwulf28: makes sense  [8:55 PM]

elitekumquat: where can we attempt unsolved puzzles?  [8:55 PM]

LFP6: There's still a couple things to solidify before the form is sent out  [8:56 PM]

LFP6: elitekumquat: As in, puzzles you haven't solved yet?  [8:56 PM]

elitekumquat: are there any that nobody has solvedyet?  [8:56 PM]

LFP6: There are a few that are actually impossible to solve  [8:57 PM]

LFP6: For example, you used to be able to submit puzzles without solving them yourself, so that allowed some impossible ones  [8:58 PM]

elitekumquat: I see, thank you  [8:58 PM]

LFP6: Aside from that, you can go to player puzzles (or challenge puzzles, though more people have solved those) and sort by number of solves  [8:58 PM]

cynwulf28: If you want to solve the solvable puzzles which no one has solved, I will post a link  [8:58 PM]

cynwulf28: some impossible ones may also be included  [8:59 PM]

cynwulf28: [9:00 PM]

cynwulf28: you have to go down about 20 rows to get past the 1-solver only list, but then you hit the 0 solvers [9:00 PM]

cynwulf28: WARNING: They have 0 solvers for a reason...they are intimidating [9:01 PM]

cynwulf28: don't feel discouraged if you can't get any [9:01 PM]

cynwulf28: but regardless....Godd Luck !   :smile: [9:02 PM]

LFP6: If anyoone wants to discuss Eternacon stuff, let me know on Slack  [9:08 PM]

cynwulf28: alright [9:08 PM]

LFP6: I think we'l need to wait for Johan to get some time befor we can do some things anyhow : [9:09 PM]

LFP6: :slightly_smiling_face: [9:09 PM]

cynwulf28: I know he is busy  [9:10 PM]

cynwulf28: has his hands full likely [9:10 PM]

LFP6: Yes [9:11 PM]

LFP6:  mean, registration is the big thing  [9:11 PM]

LFP6: To happen  [9:11 PM]

cynwulf28: Also, I pasted the chat into a word Doc, not that there was much said  [9:11 PM]

LFP6: Atually, some quick updates ebfore that  [9:12 PM]

LFP6: *Actually  [9:12 PM]

LFP6: *before  [9:12 PM]

cynwulf28: gotcha  [9:12 PM]

LFP6: Johan and I did get some info on funding from Rhiju  [9:12 PM]

cynwulf28: good  [9:12 PM]

cynwulf28: I know there was some question about the specifics  [9:12 PM]

LFP6: It looks like we'll be in a pretty good position, and will be able to help out the people who need travel assistance without big problem  [9:13 PM]

LFP6: Rhiju really wants to see more people coming, so we may reach out to people who said they wanted to only come virtually, reinforcing that we are able to support travel [9:14 PM]

cynwulf28: indeed [9:14 PM]

cynwulf28: For the record I plan to attend [9:14 PM]

cynwulf28: I have set it as a goal for myself [9:14 PM]

LFP6: Ok, cool [9:14 PM]

cynwulf28: I met Astro in person last week as a test-run. it went well :smile: [9:15 PM]

LFP6: Also, we should probably get going a bit more on the schedule. I was thikning of waiting for registration before reaching out to confirm sessions, but I might want to start doing that sooner [9:15 PM]

LFP6: Ah, cool!! [9:15 PM]

LFP6: Ok, I think that's it [9:18 PM]
