What are the office hours?
From sunrise to sunset
Haha, no, I mean hours
I know it ... ... never mind
They're a UK company, so they work (or attempt to) EU business hours.
However, they're up at night as well as early in the mornings. They have forum moderators that work different time zones. It's simply an internet company, in my opinion, allowing one to be online when possible.
9am - 5pm gmt i'd imagine.
Don't forget we are on daylight saving (BST (British Summer Time)) at the moment which is an hour ahead of GMT, so business hours will be 8am - 4pm UTC
In some parts of the world daylight savings time ended a few days ago. Could you confirm that you will still be on dst next week? In the USA dst ends in November.
Perhaps dst ends in the UK on October 31st based on this?
Yep as you found out daylight saving ends here on October 31st.
Oh my word people. It's a 24 hour window, do we really need to get it down to the hour?
damn straight. who else will be hitting f5 repeatedly next tuesday so they can legitimately call First!
LOL quite a few people, I bet.
Don't care about first, care about get!
It's vB4 all over again.
Yes, but it is not going on sale at a specific hour...It is going on sale "at some point during normal business hours". It would be one thing if XF said that it would go on sale at precisely 11am, in which case, I would understand people trying to figure out timezones...but when you're talking about an 8-9 hour span...
Don't worry people, just check in around 8am GMT and keep coming back until it's available. I promise you won't miss the party
It's okay, I'll be up at 12:01am and refresh non-stop until it's launched.
I'm sure somebody's got time to re-write an auction-sniper tool to do the job for them
If you can't go to a site for 5 minutes in a period of 24 hours ..
Could people please think about the bandwidth issues Xenforo might have with constantly refreshing. Let's get Ashley's phone number and call him constantly from 12.00.01am, hey 5th Oct regardless of time zone. Sure Ashley and family wont mind
If you wait until 8pm GMT then you are bound to catch it, as that will be past any office hours, but well within the 24 hr period.
