Chill/Hangout session - ForumIAS

Chill/Hangout session

Hey guys. So I was thinking to take a breather from all this, we could meet up virtually for a while. Nothing formal, just relax and talk basically, especially since there is such a huge shared experience. I think it'll just feel good to see forum friends/make new ones.

If it ends up being weird/awkward, I'll take the blame :P or you can pretend to lose your internet connection.

Any suggestions are very welcome. 

ABSOLUTELY OKAY TO JUST LURK WITHOUT TURNING ON AUDIO/VIDEO.

WEDNESDAY, 13th OCTOBER. 9 - 10 PM.

@whatonly My streak of not having to download and use Zoom ends here πŸ˜‚


Haha, I tried for so long not to. Had to attend a meeting some weeks ago & I installed it. Uninstalled it the second the meeting ended.

Sorry for the delay guys. Here are my findings:

Wednesday, 13th (tomorrow), 9-10

Day: clear winner 


Time: 9-10 PM seems to beat 11 AM-1 PM by a narrow margin. 13 people to 12. I know 11 AM - 1 PM would seem more comfortable to those of us at home, afternoons indeed are better to socialise (me too) :P But 9-10 seems to be best for working folks who won't be free during the day. So everyone who couldn't do 9-10 PM, please please try :) We will have more to talk about at the end of the day maybe!


Perfect.. afternoon me toh I would have been busy in office. 😁😁

😈

Google Meet ka main disadvantage is that you have to be signed in to join. Zoom has full anonymity.

@whatonly I think google meet is better with 100 participants and 60 min duration. Anyways either will suit me

I am so tempted to make another poll on whether people would be willing to give up anonymity or make fake google accounts :P

Thank u@Villanelle . Jahan bachpann ke doston ne saath chhod diya, wahan forum ke kuch mahinon ke doston ne yaad kiya...feels super nice and welcome. 

As regarding my joining the call, it will be next time for me. I am shattered. Not bcoz i might not pass pre this time. 2 qns here and there and i will pass. But even those qns that i did right, i cud have easily done wrong in exam! Do i sound crazy? Maybe the uncertainty is taking a toll on my mental peace. 

It's a pack up from my side. 

But hey, have a nice meet up! And see u the next time Wen it happens.
