Guidelines

  • You will need a Zoom account to participate. If you don’t already have one, sign up for a free Zoom account here.

  • Familiarize yourself with Zoom tools. Make sure you know how to mute/unmute yourself, how to turn your video on and off, how to “raise your hand”, etc. Many functions will be disabled to make it easier to manage the meeting, but you’ll need to know the essentials.

  • Test your audio & video in advance. Please make sure your audio and video are connected and working beforehand!

  • Arrive on time. For most meetings, Sid and I (Mel) have chosen to limit capacity to 100 people to maintain the level of intimacy he prefers and not overload my moderating abilities. As these chats are gaining popularity, we are reaching capacity faster and faster. However, if you try to login and cannot, please feel free to continue trying as not everyone stays for the entire meeting.

  • Use a pronounceable name. Your display name should be something we can pronounce and something appropriate. For example, if you generally go by +GeekGod1701+ online but your real name is Jake, please make your display name Jake. You can use the Rename feature in Zoom to change your screen name if necessary.
  • Respect each other’s time. A lot of people will want to speak with Sid, and he wants to chat with you about your lives and how you’re handling life during a pandemic. Pretend like you’re at a convention and wait your turn at the microphone.

  • Please mute yourself when not talking! Many people have trouble with auditory processing when there’s a lot of background noise. Also, nobody wants to hear you breathe/chew/chat with your partner. 

  • Use appropriate language. We assume there are children/youths participating in every meeting so let’s keep this PG-13 or below.

  • Avoid inappropriate requests. Our purpose is to hang out and socialize virtually. Please respect that intention.

  • Think about what you want to share. Sid truly does enjoy getting to know people from around the world, from all walks of life, with all sorts of interests. However, remember that whatever you share with Sid will be shared with everyone else in the Zoom meeting. Including what’s visible on your screen (maybe do a quick check behind you). Be safe!

  • Relax and enjoy. This will be fun, promise. Grab your favorite beverage, login, and get ready to chat!
