>A GUIDE TO /hlgg/ POSTING HOURS (PST/UTC)
>OVERALL MOST CONSISTENT
>3pm-9pm (22:00-04:00 UTC)
NA primetime. The common timeslot of Gura/Ame. Obviously the most popular vtuber and /hlgg/s personal favorite would draw a large amount of posters, which makes bait harder to stick for long. Even if there is a shitpost that gets a lot of (You)s, the raw post speed usually washes it away pretty quick. Ina and Mori are also occasionaly seen at this time. Mumei/Kronii from council have been seen at this hour and random other members, causing massive overlap at times, which /hlgg/ is still learning to deal with.
>RISKY BUT USUALLY OKAY
>9pm-1am (04:00-08:00 UTC)
Late night NA hours, SEA begins to wake up. Commonly seen by IRyS, Bae, and whoever streams later than usual. Ame randomly has late-night streams here that usually help the thread out. Sometimes these can be the best times to browse /hlgg/ with great comfy vibes, other times there is abhorrent shitposting - by far the biggest coinflip for browsing. Usually attracts the most meta-posting of any timeslot.
>1am-5am (08:00-12:00 UTC)
Dead hours. threads move very slow and can die at very low postcounts, especially if bumpschizo is around. Threads tend to mostly be strange /hlg/ immigrants trying to talk about any random JP is on, with very few people replying to them. Usually some guy is also spamming about Rushia. Holostar posters tend to sneak in at this time as well. People post bait here but usually only a few people respond due to not a lot of people being around. Thread can occasionally be funny if a good topic comes up, but is usually rather dull unless a huge JP event is happening like a concert. Off-topic stuff sneaks in the most at this time as well
>WARNING: TOXIC HAZARD, RUN
>6am-11am (13:00-18:00 UTC)
By far without any real contest the worst timeslot in /hlgg/, EU primetime. Some blame EU, others blame SEA, but regardless the posts in this time are absolutely abhorrent. It is no surprise that this timeslot is monopolized by Kiara and sometimes Mori, who usually have great streams, but it's no secret that they attract some absolute fucking schizos. Bait is fucking EVERYWHERE, people who take their shitposting very seriously reside here, who usually ban-evade so begging mods for help can only do so much. Gigantic increase of /pol/ memes, /v/ lingo, and off-topic stuff in general on top of all of the shizo ramblings about how much someone hates kiara/ame/mori/santa/etc
>11am-3pm (18:00-22:00 UTC)
Ironically, Kiara is usually still streaming at this time due to her long-ass streams, but this is where the threads usually slowly recover from the previous awful timeslot. You can visibly see all of the shitposting get washed away in a tidal wave of WAHs as Ina comes on. Despite this being Ina's exclusive timeslot, there is still definitely some shitposting, although MUCH more gentle than the previous timeslot. Shitposting in this timeslot seems to always be tribalism-related, trying to pit fanbases against each other, easy to spot if you browse here a lot. Despite that, threads are usually pretty comfy around this time and anons will reply to you if you're talking about streams. Fauna also seems to be in this timeslot a lot.
