  1. @Vodnokon4e: Do you think we could do this together with my submission "Create one-day challenges in under one hour"? Gikü (talk) 15:55, 21 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
    @Gikü: yes, I do. In my opinion both presentations and discussions will have a lot in common. So we can use my timeslot (slightly bigger - 30 mins) - what do you think (or maybe request bigger slot ~ 40 mins together)? --Vodnokon4e (talk) 16:07, 21 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
    That's how I imagine it. Good! Let's do it. Should I redirect my submission to yours and extend details/time? Gikü (talk) 16:22, 21 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
    Let me check first with someone from the organizers - I hope it will not affect the programme. --Vodnokon4e (talk) 17:05, 21 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
