Meta Schedule

We've finalised the meta schedule. Included are both muskratjamboree and rat_jam exclusive panels. There's something for everyone from multi-fandom questions to character specific. Bolded titles means that essays or discussion questions have been submitted. For those panels where we have no specific meta, a post will be opened to allow free discussion on the topic. Please remember the rules of rat_jam and have a lot of thinky fun!

How it works: There will be posts posted at the times stated on the schedule. We will have a link in the sidebar to a 'collection point' where you can browse the topics to find what you want if you can't be there at the scheduled time. All posts will stay in place, but we cannot guarantee a timely mod response after the specified hour.

If you're suddenly struck by a last minute idea, never fear, just drop a line to thecatthatwalkedalone @ blueyonder dot co dot uk and we'll fit you into the schedule. The more the merrier.

Finally, mod help is still welcomed. It's a fairly easy job – the Track This button is your friend – so shouldn't interfere with your viewing/attempts to remember to eat, sleep, feed the cat... Just comment to this post and let us know what you're interested in.

Don't forget to check back to see what's new.

Thanks go to silverakira who did the hard html work for the muskratjamboree timetable which this is based on.



All times are Boston time, to co-ordinate with muskratjamboree, i.e. GMT -4
