Location and time?

Summer isn't over yet! Anyone still want to schedule a Wiknic? Please?Daqu (talk) 01:19, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

I would still be interested in doing this, and Sunday would work for me, but it doesn't seem like we're getting a critical mass for a proper picnic. Maybe we should have a low-key meetup at a coffee shop or bar. Tdslk (talk) 20:17, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Agreed. There has not been as much interest in a wiknic... a coffee shop meetup might be better, especially as the weather starts to turn. There is an edit-a-thon in SE PDX next weekend. Should we consider spacing things out a bit and maybe doing something around late-September? ----Another Believer (Talk) 22:25, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
That makes sense. I assume a Saturday or Sunday would be best for most people, although I am pretty free on weekdays until PSU starts. Sunday the 28th I am busy, but what about Saturday the 27th? I could also probably do either day the weekend before. Tdslk (talk) 16:28, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

  • I am interested. Sundays work best for me this month. Tdslk (talk) 17:51, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
  • I am definitely interested, but might need a ride to and from Beaverton (Tanasbourne area).Daqu (talk) 17:30, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
P.S. I have the use of a car this week (through next weekend, August 9-10. Does anyone want to schedule it then? (In the last several years there were about 12 attendees. What happened to everyone? Are all the local Wikipedians aware of this plan-in-progress?)Daqu (talk) 01:40, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
  • I'm interested too. Meng6

Why did my recent post to this page disappear? Please don't remove comments. ThanksDaqu (talk) 22:36, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
Apologies. I did not delete your comment, but I did move it up a section to separate discussion about the time and location from the list of interested participants. Feel free to continue discussing above. ----Another Believer (Talk) 14:42, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
FIrst, kindly do not move my posts anywhere. Please move it back to exactly where I posted it.
Second, how does anyone expect for us to get organized if we can't see the complete discussion on one page? A page that has very little on it, in fact.
Let's not be so obsessed with organization that we forget common sense.Daqu (talk) 15:42, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
