    I'd like to host a trial PSN Game night this week, and I think it would be cool to have a front page notice about it, even if it was just for that day. I've posted about it in the Big PSN ID List thread, but everyone would know about it and could join in if it was on the front page. I was thinking of doing this trial game day on Wednesday August 12th at 20:00 UTC (here's the link for the fixed time so you can figure out the time in your time zone. It's basically the afternoon in America and evening in Europe.) I figure we can also set up an IRC chat room if people don't have microphones, or want to decide on another game to play. We will be starting with Burnout Paradise since that is the most voted game in the topic, and go from there.

    So important information:
    PSN Game Night - Trial Run
    Wednesday August 12th
    20:00 UTC - check your time zone
    Starting game is Burnout Paradise, more to follow if wanted. Maybe some Fat Princess?

    Thanks!

    Not really.. I'm suggesting something be posted to the main site. p1ngy suggested it, so it must be true.

    If you write a nice news article in the proper format and post it in the User Submitted News forum then I could make it appear on the front page [​IMG]

    Dont listen to antonkan, he is trolling and is the last person to listen to about board conduct.

    There is no problem making a PSN game night approval request here, so if its approved it can be posted on the front page. This wouldn't be the main PSN night thread anyway, this is just a suggestion for it.

    Im all up for a PSN night, I dont have burnout, I dont like that game much, but Killzone 2 I am up for definitely.

    Why not just add people from the PSN ID thread? That's what it's there for. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yes I would be up for it. Evening Europe is good for me and I have Burnout.

    I'm afraid I can't think of any simple way to explain it. I can provide some examples though. Focus on writing the text and on providing a picture and then I could fix the rest of it.

    Examples:
    [​IMG] TF2 Night
    [​IMG] Xbox Live Night
    [​IMG] TF2 Night
    [​IMG] WiFi Night

    I think the people who are interested in the PSN on the day should post their ID's and what games they want to play in the thread, and they can also use the IRC chatroom too if you set it up. It would be easier then trawling through the the PSN ID list and adding everyone.

    I already have a almost full friends list with all my school mates so i can only afford to fit those who are actually up for it.

    I've always been using for the same effect, but normal users can't use html so your method is better. Although he shouldn't have to think about those, I can fix them later.

    Hmmmm bit of a FAIL there with time zones ......

    your post states 20:00 GMT .....but your link shows as 20:00 UTC time

    which do you mean GMT or UTC !?

    As for the time, the 'world clock' site listed gmt and utc as the same time zone, so i thought they were the same time. Anyways, you can just look at the list and find your city/time.

    i'll look through those posts and format mine better, but I don't have a graphic of the skills to make one, sorry.

    As far as adding usernames, I think that when a final thread is made for the event, everyone who wants to play can add their name there. I thought that's what the whole point of the main PSN ID thread was, as all the people who've signed up are in the first post, but if that's too many people to add, whatever.

    UTC = GMT+1, If it's GMT as you said in your first post it'll be 20:00 as you said, if we're following UTC it'll be 21:00 GMT and in that case, most likely i won't be able to play for as long as i'd like to, so which is it?
