Happy hours on Dragon [#505]
: Happy hours on Dragon

I want to propose if we can introduce so-called "happy hours" on DGS so that we get more fun playing and also make more moves.
What is happy hour? It is when a significant amount of Dragon players are sitting in front of their computer (possibly with a glass of beer) and play Go on DGS. During this hour the pending games will progress faster, and you will get, well, more fun :-)
If just 2 or 3 of your opponents will participate in a happy hour together with you, you will have the opportunity to make from 10 to 20 moves in each game, possibly a 100 of moves for the hour.
Why you don't just play a game on IGS? I'm a father, and I have no idea what will happen in 30 minutes. I had to surrender many games on IGS just because I can't play anymore. On DGS, I just terminate my happy hour, well, early.
Can we chat to see who's there? Yes, please propose the best chat mechanism to make a virtual community during the happy hour.
When happy hour will happen? We have many players from all around the globe, and they have different time preferences. I think 5 hours per week will be good enough, some of them in the morning, some in the evening. Let discuss that.
In short, the happy hour is: chat, beer and Go :-)

I would say firt thing that comes to my mind is chat rooms in KGS. We can just log-in to KGS to chat but play on Dragon.
