Since people were calling for a revised poll (excluding the 12-2PM option), here you go!

[Poll #1731514]

(Eastern time is -4:00/5:00 GMT, depending on daylight savings.)

((Note that the 6-7 is AM, not PM. The 8-11 is PM, not AM.))

ETA: Additionally, how would you feel about keeping it at the usual 4PM Eastern on weekends? That's totally doable. Say what you think in comments maybe?

Whatever time is best for you, honestly.

Personal preference, I'd rather have it up in the morning, because I like being able to read F!S before work, (which was great, cause half the time I go in at 5 eastern), but I really don't *care* so long as it's up.

But given a say, I say early, but it's whatever works best for all y'all that put the posts together.

Whenever works best with *your* schedule. That is the whole point. As long as it can be a regular time, with notes if it changes, is okay by me. I'd like to see it keep happening.

The earlier the better, and try to keep the proper time at weekends please. At least the Non-American population would be be able to contribute two days out of seven, otherwise it's look but not participate.

Yeah, this. :(

Those who DEMAND a specific post time (looking at you, anon in today's post comments) can go screw themselves because they obviously don't know how hard it is to daily maintain a page this huge.
Techno, you shouldn't even be asking a question like this because with the amount of followers, there's no ultimate answer that would suit everyone. The posting time is completely up to you and no one has the right to demand anything from you considering how big of a job you're doing [:

Whatever works best of course, but as far as my personal preference goes, I do like being able to post in the comments while people are still replying, and 6-7 AM Eastern is 3-4 AM for me. :\ So that is why I voted the way that I did.

(Anonymous) 2011-04-19 06:17 pm (UTC)(link)
This.

If I have something to say about a secret, I don't want to post it five hours later, when nobody's going to look at it. That's just pointless. It's especially a problem when I'm the OP and want to clarify something...can't really do that if I'm not awake to see the questions before the askers stop paying attention to the thread.

I loathe the will of the people sometimes.

(Anonymous) 2011-04-19 01:40 am (UTC)(link)
I honestly can't understand why this is an issue.

Do it whenever it's good for you. Seriously. Screw the complainers. It's your life, it's your comm.

In Japan, the usual 4 PM was nice because I could read it on the way to work; 12-2 was a pain because I'd be soundly asleep, and 8-11 will be a bit harder because I'd be AT work. So I chose 6-7 AM, because I'd just be settling down for some free time after work.

That being said, none of these times are the end of the world, so while I voted for one of the times because I do have a preference if it's all the same, I say go with what you feel like :)

[identity profile] anruiukimi.livejournal.com 2011-04-19 02:18 am (UTC)(link)
I would prefer the usual, as I am reading from Japan. :) I get to look at them when I get up! But do whatever works best for you. <3

I'm pretty sure we all do, honey, but it's best to stop crying about things that can't be changed and get the deuce over it; Case is doing the best he can with what he's got. Jesus, what a bunch of whiners we have in this comm.

... though wow, I really shouldn't be surprised, these are FS anons.

[identity profile] ayeayes.livejournal.com 2011-04-19 02:57 am (UTC)(link)
Hmm, I kind of have mixed feelings.

On one hand, if it was in the morning, it would be kind of fun to be able to check FS first thing in the morning and have the whole day to be able to comment on the secrets before the comment threads become "old". But it seems a bit weird to have the day's post already over with so early.

On the other hand, if it were at night it would be cool to have "Fandom Secrets time" occur after a long day, and I know a lot of people like browsing the web at night. But then it would feel like more of a disappointment when there's nothing really interesting, since we had the whole day to build up to when the secrets are posted.

It seems both options have their pros and cons.

[identity profile] la-petite-singe.livejournal.com 2011-04-19 03:09 am (UTC)(link)
Eh, I guess I'm good with anything, although first thing in the morning sounds weird/amusing. ;)

[identity profile] haleysings.livejournal.com 2011-04-19 03:15 am (UTC)(link)
As long as it goes up around the same time every day so I can check it since the notifs aren't going out any more, I'm cool. ^^ I'd prefer later in the day to the morning but it's not essential.

66% still say it doesn't matter as long as it updates once a day

Yet people will still complain when it goes up at 8 Eastern

(Anonymous) 2011-04-19 05:33 pm (UTC)(link)
well 33% of 2000+ is still a lot.

[personal profile] convault 2011-04-19 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
hey case hey case i think you should track the times that i'm online and only update f!s then and when i'm not doing anything else or else it's inconvenient for me to participate.

i mean i know you have a job and a life and it takes a while to code and post comments and everything, but seriously, how fucking biased is it that you only post when you have the time to?

ok cool thanks.

Everyone who's whining should just shut the fuck up. The world and F!S do not revolve around you. HOW DARE TECHNO HAVE A JOB! DOESN'T HE CARE ABOUT YOU TROLLING EACH OTHER AND BITCHING? HOW SELFISH! Seriously, that's what you guys sound like.

It's a LiveJournal community. You won't die without your precious secret wank. It's not the end of the world that OMFG YOU CAN'T COMMENT!!! Guess what? Someone who beat you to it'll probably say the same damn thing you were going to. If not? Well, you'll just have to be late. Don't get butthurt about it. Why is being "late" such a big deal to some of you anyway? People never reply to me 90% the time unless I'm commenting on a wanky secret, and I'm sure your opinion on that hypothetical wanky secret isn't as special as you think it is.

I'd like it in the morning (Also EST here), but 8-11 PM's cool too. I'd love to have F!S at the regular time on the weekends. I'd definitely appreciate that, but if you end up getting busy or something, I won't freak out.

Good luck with your job, bro, it's awesome that you have one! *Jobless loser here, sob*

[identity profile] leafing.livejournal.com 2011-04-19 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
I like any time except the 8-11 EST one.

LOLLLLing at all the people who are b'awwing. The automatic response should be: whatever is convenient to the baller mod of fandom secrets.

Also, BEING IN TIME FOR THE WANK OF A SECRET IS NOT THAT BIG A DEAL. Get over it.

Am I really the only one who prefers to read the wank after it's all over? I usually have nothing to contribute anyway (everyone else usually has it covered), and it saves me from having to refresh the page. *shrug*

I think a time change will allow more people to participate. I hope that the people who will now look at it later can keep their level of comments up and lasting a little longer. It will also allow some of those who felt they were too late to comment on the secrets a chance to be "first". I hope this will extend the time where comments are relevant to the whole day not just the few hours after a post.

I never tracked when it updated before fffffff my schedule is so irregular that I normally just see huge-ass threads and read them and lol at the wank, and that's that. Whenever I actually catch it JUST POSTED, I waste so much time F5ing for comments to come in.

[identity profile] masquerain.livejournal.com 2011-04-19 05:19 pm (UTC)(link)
omg this. lol it literally makes no difference to me because of my schedule, but even if it did, I'd be happy for the mod to just do what's convenient.

[identity profile] badass-tiger.livejournal.com 2011-04-19 06:07 am (UTC)(link)
Neither of these times would allow me to participate ;______; So sad. It'd be nice for you to keep the 4pm on weekends though

(Anonymous) 2011-04-19 06:39 am (UTC)(link)
If you can, please keep it at the regular 4pm-5pm on the weekends?

During the weekdays I guess later at night would be better at least for me because I work during the day and I'd still be awake.

[identity profile] tigerlilydavis.livejournal.com 2011-04-19 07:32 am (UTC)(link)
I voted I don't care as long as it updates at least once a day, but I would like to stipulate that whatever the time is, I'd prefer to be consistent (i.e. the same time everyday, but I don't care what time...Or even one time during the week and a different time on weekends. So long as it's predictable).
