So I've been getting some good feedback from people and I've decided to try and take as much to heart as possible. If you check the Calendar I've added something new, "Casual Chat" night. On weeks where we don't have a chat about our group reading we will have a floating chat night. This will be an opportunity to hang out and talk about other books we are reading, comics, movie adaptations, share a poem you wrote or a chapter of a book you're working on (or even just like).
Of course this is welcome anytime but why not make a point of sharing our other projects and favorites?
If we can figure out how to sprinkle in a few streams and game nights there will never be a week without at least one fun thing to do, sound like a plan? It's your feedback and participation that will keep this thing going so please let me know what you like and don't like.
One more thing I'd like to change is the admins, meaning we need some. I'm looking for two people to promote to admin level. All you need to do as an admin is be able to participate in the group weekly chats. A big bonus is anything else you can bring to the table to help keep the group active. I would like to find (admin or otherwise) some members interested in doing a podcast and some streams. Not necessarily even with me, just someone from withing our ranks who has an interest we as a group can support.
Tomorrow kicks off the test of the Hunger Games minecraft map and our first "Casual Chat" will be occurring at the same time so if you can't join the game we can still all chat. As always we will start in the book club chat and migrate from there if needed. Also remember to go "watch" the News Echo forum thread so you get a notification every time there is a news post!
