        I don't mind, it's kinda cool to have the impetus to do DDs on the dates they're assigned in sync with my time zone.

        It'd be 10PM where I'm at. I could do the DDs then... but I think it wouldn't be too great for the sleep hygiene. Don't really have a problem either way (no big deal if I'm not landing on the first page nabbing these things anyways.)

          I am of the mentality of it will be released when it's ready.

          Asking skews results in my opinion.

          Nice of you to consider our feelings tho! Serious, it demonstrates the darebee spirit well

            Very wild suggestion:
            Can you tie the release time to the local browser/computer timezone? For instance via some sort of dynamic content i.e. pull local timezone -> display different version of main page/DD element? If no time zone is submitted/could not be pulled by the local browser release DD on 24.00 GMT. Could be technically challenging. And i dont know if at all possible (and/or without screwing up the fast load times and/or hosting server load).

            On another note: would the release times be adjusted for DST etc.?
            Otherwise (if nothing feasible and/or no consensus reached) i humbly suggest release on 24.00 GMT. Then everybody is scr**d .


            just my 2cents

              fabianlanco we thought about that but then we also release these across the web so it can get super confusing Some people will already have the workout of the day and others will still have the previous day's workout. We haven't ruled that out completely yet, though, this is just the initial thinking.

              P.S. ...And we actually had it at 12:00 GMT originally

                I like the release time better now. When it hit in the middle of
                the afternoon here, I added it into my evening workout, which was not
                a bad thing.
                Now, however, it is there in the morning and I
                have realized I love doing the Daily Dare to get my
                blood pumping in the morning, then I sit and enjoy my coffee.

                Beyond that, it doesn't really matter. I could still do
                it in the morning if it came out at 5, but I get excited and
                want to try it, so it is hard to save it til the next day.

                  Either way is good for me. I enjoyed the old release time because it hit fairly early in the morning for my time zone, which meant I could post sassy comments after completing the DD and more people would see them. So now I can either keep doing the DD in the morning, which reduces the number of people who get to access my dazzling wit, or change my workouts to the afternoon (you know, to keep my fans happy).

                      The old timing worked for me better, but only because the new timing lands the release exactly around my usual workout time, sometimes before, sometimes just after, meaning that I could skip one day's dare and then have the same dare still up on the website when I do next day. I know it's just a few extra clicks to go to yesterday's dare, it's really just convenience thing.
                      Perhaps a quick link to yesterday's dare in each DD post?

                      PS Oh hey, first post. Hi.

                            For me the previous release time worked better. It's already 12:40 here, lunchtime. And the site still lives in yesterday for me. Not too handy, as I have some time for translating workout descriptions (for a VK group) only in morning hours or at home late in evening. I guess I'll just have to pass 'workout of the day' part to my colleagues and go for releases then.

                            UPD: Why the heck did I vote for the new time in the poll then? I have to take a rest, definitely.

                              I personally hate the new release time too, but voted for it too.
