    This may have been asked before, if so my apologies.

    Would it be possible to get some uniformity in the start times of the new WBAYDN threads? Like starting it at 8pm EST and running it untill 8pm EST the following day and then starting a new one? Right now they seem to end whenever and start whenever, like right now #99 is open and someone started #100 at like 6:30am EST.

    They usually end when we lock the current and begin when someone starts a new one. Seems to be working fine after 100 tries.

    What would be the importance of a specific end/start time?

    I dunno, right now they are started by someone coming off a night shift, you get some sporadic posting, several "I'm drinking coffee cause it it's only whatever AM here" posts, then down time and things usually start picking up around the time the old LNBA threads used to start, so I just figured having a uniformed start time would improve the flow of the thread but still give night shifters a chance to post, it would just be at the end instead of the beginning.

    I mean if I am the only one than cares then no biggie.

    Commet #3 makes a lot of sense.
