Please come to Chat on Monday, May 7 at 10:00 pm EDT for a planning meeting for our Launch Party. You can register for the chat and get a doodad for your calendar here.


  • Plan a party to celebrate our launch out of beta and possibly also act as a tool for promoting the site to new users.


  • What elements will the party include?

    (Some ideas are here.)

  • Who will arrange each piece that needs arranging?

  • On what date and time will the party be scheduled?

  • How will we promote the party?

As we make decisions, an answer to this post will be edited to reflect them.

Sorry about the last-minute and US-centric scheduling; it's just the way this had to go this time. Hopefully, the party itself will be more deliberately planned.

Here's the meeting transcript.

Key decisions:

  • The party will be, B"H, on Sunday, June 3, 2012, at 9pm IDT / 2pm EDT / 11am PDT. (Register here.)

  • We will spend the next week (through Monday, May 14) trying to assemble panelists for a panel discussion.

    • Isaac will re-contact R' Torczyner and Joel Spolsky and will possibly also contact R's Student and Waxman.

    • Alex will contact Sara Esther Crispe.

  • One possible element will be a call-in game. Alex has game materials which he will provide to WAF, who can run the game.

  • Alex and Dave will prepare ~2-minute divrei Torah. Alex will read his, and msh210 will read Dave's.

  • Jin is willing to create an ad for the party, once we nail down the content.

  • We'll discuss a promotion plan after we nail down the content and ask for the ad.

    I've created tinyurl.com/yodeyachat & snurl.com/yodeya & snipurl.com/yodeya to redirect to the chat room, in case it is advantageous to announce the room's URL online. (I made more than one, as I wasn't sure which was best. Obviously, any further suggestion are welcome, or simply say "click 'chat', atop any page of the site".

  • @msh210, Thanks! We could also use Selected_Name.yodeya.com, chat.yodeya.com, chat.miyodeya.com, or any subdomain of one of those domains that we want.
