    Default 'Rolling herf'


    2 Not allowed!

    @geoffbot is organising a Zoom herf this evening (see Guildford Spring Meet Up or Teddington or Windsor ) around the aborted (real life) Guildford herf we 'Surrey herfers' had set-up for around now.

    I thought, if there idea of future ones of these appealed, it would be worth having a separate threat and the idea of a 'rolling herf', ie rolling through an evening. My suggestion is this:

    Because different times may suit different people (for example, 5.00 is a bit early for me), how about having a 'rolling herf' where someone organises the Zoom meeting number and passcode and then announces a start time (could be 5/6.00, say), but people can then drop in and out as its suits them. We could, by consensus, have a regular 'club evening' on a chosen day and/or ad hoc herfs or herfs on other days which could be organised under individual threads within the herf section of the forum to avoid confusion.

    We'd have to see how it works on numbers; I'm assuming there will come a point when there are too many pictures on the screen, but I may be wrong about that and would welcome more informed comment. Personally, I'd like to see it as a 'drop in thing', but if capacity is an issue, then we could have a list like for cigar of the month. In fact, not impossible to link one herf a month to cigar of the month, with us all tryng the stick at the same time?

    What do people think?

    We have been using zoom for around a week now since FB messenger only works up to 8 persons. Zoom works pretty good but we haven't exceeded 16 persons yet. I think that from 17 on it might get a little small.

    Zoom goes up to 100!

    As I don't ever really smoke under shelter, doubt I'll be able to get in on these but if all the stars align I'll jump in!

    Sure, but if you have 100 people on screen you won't be able to see much unless you have a huge screen.

    Sounds good to me, dropping in for smoke & then someone else taking over, when you have finished. Doubt we'd go over a dozen often, especially when everyone is back to normal working hours.

    Especially with the better weather from Sunday, I’ll likely be out most nights getting them in while I can.

    To someone who knows more about Zoom than I do:

    If we each get the App (although I know you can join a meeting via the Zoom website too), we will each then have our own sign-in address and password, but beyond that, ie setting-uo and joining a call, what's the best way/what's permitted?

    I've not set a cal up before, but I assume when you do you get a number for that specific meeting (rather than having a 'rolling number' and passcode that we could use each time y/n?) If so, perhpas we have a 'Tonight's herf' string like the 'What I'm smoking today' string where the person setting-up a call for that day (ie the first person on) posts the access details for others to get and join the call. Make sense?
