We are planning to have banner printed for the Wikipedia X Bangalore event.
We need people with design interests to help with the banner. Also if any of
you have prior experience in banner creation, please ping me off list. The
banners created can be reused by all the cities with minimal changes. These
banners will also help in future outreach events.
Very interesting, so posting.

*Subject:* *Video Chats arrangements*
as I mentioned previously
some of us expressed our wishes to video chats with other parties around the
(even Jimbo express such wish :P)
so I think it is to have a list or sort of thing to cross check each other
so I started one the ten yo wiki http://ten.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_Chat
I have a little request for everyone to convert your party time to UTC
also, for an easier match.
and I have divided the list into two sections, as I believe 15th will be the
peak hour of events.
do feel free to suggest anything
and if you wanna chat with our HK beaux, do mail me off list :P
