    I would like a discussion. Currently the DSG|EU is going to be using the last DSG theme. 2 users suggested this way since they didn't want users to be upset that they couldn't do the same topic as DSG did.

    But my suggestion is. That if I cannot set it(which ALOT of the times i can set the DSG|EU topic as well as the DSG), I could give a few users permission to access a command on my bot to launch a random topic from an DSGEUtheme.txt which would be seperate from the DSGtheme.txt
    The reason they would have to be seperate is because i would have to delete the used theme, and it wouldn't be fair for one group to use a theme and take it from another.

    So all in all both groups would have their own random themes. No one would be jipped because even if one theme was better than another some day, it's still in the groups theme thread.

    i hope all the makes sense. it seemed like a huge run on sentance when i wrote it..

    having the EU guys know the topic beforehand kinda robs them of the shock and horror of not knowing the topic until its time to start.

    Very true. Maybe the bot could be programmed to change the topic automatically? That would be neat... It could set the topic for SDG, then when the time's up it could erase it, and show it again when it's time for DSG|EU.

    Davi, can it be done?

    What signature?

    maybe we should keep the same topic but make the dsg|eu before the dsg.
    i mean :
    dsg (2am GMT) to dsg|eu (8pm GMT)= +18h
    dsg|eu (8pm GMT) to dsg (2am GMT the day after)= +6h
    so i think it would be better if the new topic appeared first at dsg|eu time.
    what u think ?

    yea and then someone from the regular DSG posts a topic when they're done and then we all post our picture. This way the topic stays hidden for everyone!

    I agree, the way to make it invisible for all is that we, the EU crew do the painting before, but post it after US guys...

    It lose a bit of magic having to wait for posting, but i can do if the topic remains as a surprise...

    it also kills the whole 90 minute speed painting concept, which seems like the best part

    the only solution that really works is separate themes for each group, and if I understand how things work here (and I'm not suggesting I do) that would only work if the two groups posted in separate threads . . . easy enough to do?

    No waiting for posting...this is stupid...as grey said, the 90 minutes AND not knowing the topic until the start are the best parts about this...

    So it would lose much attractiveness if people were posting hours after finishing the pieces...

    Sad, but it seems, that this different topic-thing is the best solution...

    If everyone wants the same theme, too bad you can't lock the DSG thread after everyone has posted and discussed the work for awhile and then unlock the thread again when the DSG|EU people are ready to post.

    killing.people, mountian i believe....

    I think i would like to set up 2 seperate themes, for DSG|EU and DSG. The problem is no one is joining for the dsg|eu at all... so... if you guys would join #sketch for the EU time zone and continue doing it the lame way it is for a bit, so i know people are doing it then i well set up it's own themes, so they aren't wasted.

    tell your friends or something


    [edit: davi]
    Ok ignore that. I set it up so DSG|EU has it's own seperate themes.

    DSG|EU would start at approx. 3 AM (if you're living in Beijing) or DSG would start at approx. 10 AM i think....

    regarding the daylight saving time:

    Could the DSG start an hour earlier? Its because most european countries already changed it...

    The USA DST will operate in 6th april i think. Further information: http://www.worldtimezone.com/daylight.htm

    btw. http://www.worldtimezone.com/index24.html is a good overview..

    Topics will never repeat again. DSG and DSG|EU will be using the same topic list now. So.. if dsg|eu gets a good topic, you can always do it late but it will never show up for DSG now, and vice versa. I'm going to try to add a few hundred new topics to the list. i need at least 600 for a full years worth.

    Personally I never did mind about having the same topics as the DSG some days before. In fact I often would have liked to get some of the topics as well ... I suppose it´s more of a problem to the non-Europeans in the DSG/EU.
