Where’s my “Both on Monday” vote? D:<

:stuck_out_tongue: Since I was the only one who had voted in that poll I remade it for you, ya heathen >:p /s

Do you still want to post just one thread (but instead of one chapter this thread will cover two chapters)? Or do you plan on posting two threads per week (so this question is asking when to post the second thread)?

I was planning to post 2 threads a week to make for easier discussion.

Ah, I see. I didn’t catch that. I thought the last poll was just about asking if people want to speed up and read two chapters a week. But now readling more carefully, you were asking about whether to post one thread or two threads per week.

I actually prefer just one thread a week (covering 2 chapters), so I changed my vote from back then. Doesn’t change the outcome, though. :woman_shrugging:t2:

I see what you’re saying. I hadn’t considered that a possibility, but retrospectively I guess that’s what @tomwamt was going for with a both on Monday vote.

Which would you prefer?

  • 2 chapters 1 thread
  • 2 chapters 2 threads (same day)
  • 2 chapters 2 threads (different days)
  • 2 threads, no day preference

Anyone with better poll making abilities is welcome to make a better poll. I don’t have great foresight/insight into anything this week it seems.

Although, based on current results, I’ll post the next chapter thread tomorrow. If people change their votes between now and later, I don’t see any reason that we can’t move the day of the week, etc to better suit everyone at that point.

I didn’t think I cared about the threads, but it makes more sense to do it per chapter, in case someone only gets to one chapter first and still wants to participate in a discussion without spoilers.

I just found this thread and I recently bought the book, perfect timing! It might take me a week or two to catch up, but I am very excited to have assistance and community to work our way through the book.

The chapters are very short and thus we have a lot of chapters in volume 1. With just one thread a week, we wouldn’t “spam” the reading section too much. Also discussion might die down over time, we already don’t seem to have as many (active) participants. So later on, if we have one thread per week with like six replies instead of two threads with each three replies… one thread seems to be more appropriate kind of?

To avoid spoilers, we could always use the “hide details” or “blur spoiler” tool. That’s what we do in other book club threads as well.

@Sarabrina: Would you mind linking all chapter threads in the first post and make something like a reading schedule (e.g. Furuba home thread)?

What parts would we use the spoilers on? Just the 2 chapter of the week?

I think we would only need spoiler tags if we talk about major events. Just general talk about grammar or vocab is not necessarily spoilery.

Hey everyone!

I’m so sorry for my absence from the group, seeing as I started the book club in the first place.
I’ve realized that I won’t have time needed to be active in the group, especially not since I have an injured horse to care for (which has taken up most of my spare time after work lately), besides working full time and living on a farm (and caring for and exercising my other horse). I haven’t even had time to keep up with my WK reviews during the past few days. I hope you can all understand and I hope that you will continue the legacy of the Ojisama to neko book club, even without me. I will pop in when I have some spare time! My own reading of Ojisama to neko has also had to be put on hold for a while.

Good luck everyone! And thank you all for being so active in the group anyway! <3
