Possible (read: very likely) Schedule Change

The current schedule was made in 2011 and we never got to test it but recently I noticed one glaring flaw, There is no whole month summer round. Why would that be a problem you ask? Well the last whole month summer round we had was the most epic thing ever (seriously, look at those scores) and not having one again would be a shame. So because of that I am going to make July a whole month round.

In order to balance things out in terms of rest times and what not, I would have to make may a half round, and move the September round to October. What do you guys think? Let me know here or in the irc channel (irc.rizon.net #ajatt).

    I think it’s a great idea. Summer rounds are always good.

    sounds great! apart from some timezone problems for me and other travelers…
    will the may round be in the first or second half of the month?

    also, when posting this month’s results, could you please somehow distinguish those who’ve reached their goals? like even if they’re not in the top10 or top30. you did that last year and it was really cool to see! even though i’m barely halfway through with my goal… :/

    will there be one more 2-week round after may? i was planning to devote a half-round entirely to German, but may is too soon….

    March and July were the only planned 2-week rounds. Even with the old schedule I couldn’t really add another one due to it falling in November, which is a very busy time for a lot of people.

    in case you want to spread the half-rounds more evenly, it could be june (full) – august (half) – october (full), for example.

      But then people don’t have much time to rest after the July round (which will more than likely be very draining. The newbies tend to burn out easily)

    it would be the same amount of rest as now. even longer, because july is longer than february 😀

      From Jan to the 2nd half of march theres a month and a half. From end of march to 2nd half of may theres a month and a half. From the end of may to July theres a month. From July to the 2nd half of august there is 2 weeks.

    from the end of march to june there’s two months. from the end of june to the 2nd half of august there’s a month and a half.
    ie i meant that if the summer round is in june, there’s no need for a may round and there’s time for a two-week round later.

    I like the idea of a May round~! 🙂 Leave it in, and I love the idea of a whole month in June
