Welcome to the Monthly Meeting! There are some review that we will go over before we go into the new information... Is cure here?

Reply

First of all, in April( 7-12), I will be on a mini vacation and will have cure and Zest helping with the group as Admin..

Reply

Activity, I have checked the international time for India, and it is currently 19.36. In the UK the current time is 14.07, so it is too early for the meeting... The only time that is correct is your time of 10.07am I think!

Reply

Hold on...

Reply

It's 8:30 pm in India.

Reply

So where is everyone?

Reply

Not sure, but I sent a note to some of them. One is doing surgery.

Reply

I checked the times on the internet - they give international times. I know it's only 2.15pm in the UK now! Really - I think it's too early for the meeting to start...! lol :-)

Right, but the time change here is still 10 am for the meeting. How does it work in India?

Reply

That is 8pm, isn't it - so that means the people in India aren't anticipating this meeting to start for another 30 minutes. As you told them 8.30pm, and now it's only 8pm. It is 14.35 in UK now, which means any UK people won't be anticipating the start for another approx 30 minutes...

Welcome!

The next new information is dealing with the group and getting a Facebook page set up. Is anyone interested in having this being done? If so, I can set up the page and use the same name as what is on HU and add HU as a link for Facebook and do the same on HU for the other way around. Is alwaysoptimistic here?

If you aim for increased numbers of membership that would be a good idea. However, I do think improving the quality of the forum especially sensibly responding to each members inquiries.

Hello everyone,

I have been a member of Healthunlocked since January 2013, and have mainly contributed to the NHS weight loss site and then more recently to the Healthy Eating community, and I have been an Administrator in both communities, so have experience of that role.

I have known Activity2004 for some time, and she has asked me to help out with Admin whilst she is on holiday in April, and I am pleased to help - and will hope to support the existing Admins and Volunteers within the Diabetes India community, and I hope that I will be of help during that time.

Zest :-)

HU can take such decision one sided....

But it is great on part of our admin that she is taking poll and trying to understand the feelings of all members...

Further it is great initiative to interact with all active members of forum to understand feelings and problems faced by them... it is very important to understand discuss and communicate the suggestions made by active members to HU..

Such activity never happened in past....DI never had such active admin...

After understanding the motive of meeting....Hope next time you will also contribute..

My comments are made after seeing the agenda .Agenda2 created confusion.Suramo felt he is under attack and asked always optimistic if he wants to include his name.Anup put question mark on this agenda.If you still feel agenda spelt out the intention of meeting,hats off to you.

Thanks, anup! We're all trying!
