Past demogames have featured creating the game as a social event held in a chat, and I think it would be a good idea this time. One thing a well attended creation chat can do is help establish and strengthen the out of game culture and role play. Though it is almost never possible to meet the needs of every citizen, most times we seek citizen input on best and worst times to hold this momentus event. Please post your requests for dates and times to hold the creation chat. Obviously the requested dates/times will need to be filtered by the available times of the MC for the event. The President may decide to host this chat personally, or it may fall to the first DP. It should not count as an actual play session, since we only go through the creation menu, find out what civ we are playing (random won the poll) and get our first look at the starting position.
