Hi Christoph, I understand your frustration, and we have been working really hard to finalize event details. Everyone in the organization team did it voluntarily, and we all have commitments outside of this event. I appreciate your understanding in advance!
No puzzle-related rounds would require you to participate at a specific time. All the main competitions will be available for the whole period. Each monothematic contest will be available for 24 hours of each workday. There will be time trials every 6 hours, and people are not expected to participate in all of them unless they really want to. We made it every 6 hours so that it would be relatively fair for everyone.
Here are the tentative schedules for all the non-competitive events. All the time will be listed in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), and you can use https://www.worldtimebuddy.com/ to convert to your timezone. The panel time varies due to the availability of the panelists. We will record all the events except the (Stuffed) Animal Chatroom for people who want to watch later at their convenience.
This is what I can provide on my end for now. I am hoping that the schedule for the main events and the registration form could be available tomorrow. Please let me know if you have any further questions! Once again, I appreciate your understanding and patience!
