Until recently, I usually served as unofficial host for the Parashat Hashavua' Chat. Unfortunately, it seems that for the foreseeable future, I won't be able to attend. Would you be willing to take over this job, to help keep the Chat running smoothly?
No one's going to be able to do it every single week. We need someone who can do it some weeks, and who can take responsibility for finding someone to do it on others.
Here are the administrative tasks I would usually do:
- Welcome incoming chatters.
**Begin Parashat Hashavua' Chat #NN - PARASHANAME 57YY**at 17:30 UTC.
**End Parashat Hashavua' Chat #NN - PARASHANAME 57YY**when conversation lulls soon after 18:30 UTC.
When conversation really stops, bookmark
Parashat Hashavua' Chat #NN - PARASHANAME 57YYfrom the first stirrings of conversation to the last.
Update the "latest transcript" link on the Chat landing page.
In addition, whoever takes over as host would get to handle stuff like adjusting times for DST and canceling specific weeks' chats due to holidays.
