What would you consider drastically?
I am in The Netherlands you knew that ;-) and with NY the time
difference is 6 hours, with LA is 9 hours ...

Ok, a few questions.
When is a post on-topic? Is it just the "10-year" rule, or ...?
Do you have some minimalist guide lines?

I can not promise that I can do this every evening (or at work
over the day perhaps a few times), but I am indeed most of my
evenings at home, seldom on holiday, etc.

I can do that, *if*
- nobody gets angry when I move a post to the wrong list
(misunderstood contents, "guideline" interpreted different)
- I am allowed to miss out 2 or 3 times per month (not expecting
that, but you never know what can happen)
- get clear instructions what I must do, how, etc.
