The Summer Weeklong ReadaThing!!

Date: Thursday July 26 - Thursday August 2, 2012

(loops around to make the full 7 days, 168 hours)

What is ReadaThing?

ReadaThing is NOT a read-a-thon!! You do not have to read for the entire week unless you want to! ReadaThing is a time when we gather to read & share what we read. The best analogy I can offer is that ReadaThing is like a relay race where a runner hands a baton off to the next runner. Some of the readers sign up for specific reading times & some don't, but there is always someone in the group reading somewhere in the world.

Need help?

If you cannot navigate this page or do not want to edit it for some reason or simply need any help, please drop a note to jjmcgaffey with where you want to see your name or what need to be fixed (or just to let them know that some cleanup is required) and it will be taken care of.

Signing up

Instructions

  • Before you start editing, look at the timeline (below) to find which time slot you'd like to fill in. Note the GMT time or the US/EDT(EST) time, as this will help you find the right line to edit.
  • Open up the page by clicking EDIT which is to the far right of the word "TIMELINE".
  • Each hour is a row in the table. The | (bar) marks define the columns.
  • Fill in the box with the text in bold below, making sure to then exchange the two spots it says USERNAME for your actual username:
    • [http://www.librarything.com/profile/USERNAME USERNAME]
  • Click SHOW PREVIEW to see what you've changed. This has not saved your work, but it does let you see if you need to fix something.
  • When you're done editing, click SAVE PAGE.

Example

If I want to read at 8am Eastern time, this is what I'll look for:

| 8:00 AM || NOON || MIDNIGHT ||
|-

Now, I'll add my name, and create a link to my profile. This is not done with HTML. Instead, you use brackets to associate a URL with the text you want to see. Put an opening bracket ([), then the link, then a space, then what text you'd like to actually show, then a closing bracket (]).

| 8:00 AM || NOON || MIDNIGHT || [http://www.librarything.com/profile/LT_name LT_name]
|-

If table is full (except that the table is never really full)

  • Choose your time slot.
  • As above, click Edit. Find your place, and put a comma and space after the user block that's already in there.
  • Enter the bold text and replace USERNAME with your username: [http://www.librarything.com/profile/USERNAME USERNAME]
  • Click SHOW PREVIEW to make sure it looks right, then click SAVE PAGE.

Example

Find a slot:

  | 8:00 AM || NOON || MIDNIGHT || [http://www.librarything.com/profile/USERNAME USERNAME]
|-

Now, add your name, and create a link to your profile. Put in a comma and space, then copy the link text and put in your user name.

  | 8:00 AM || NOON || MIDNIGHT || [http://www.librarything.com/profile/USERNAME USERNAME], [http://www.librarything.com/profile/LT_reader LT_reader]

  • USEDT is US Eastern Daylight Time (featuring Daylight Saving Time)
  • UTC/GMT is a reference time zone; it is not subject to daylight savings. Other time zones are expressed as positive or negative offsets from UTC/GMT. We're using Noon UTC/GMT as our reference start and stop time.
