Shorah liebe Gemeinde,
wegen der aktuellen ereignis (MOUL Server down), haben wir zu folgt entschieden:
Wenn der Server vor 18 Uhr wieder läuft, werden wir wie vorgesehen fortfahren.
Falls der Server nach 18 Uhr bis max. 20:30 Uhr wieder läuft, werden wir das Rätsel auf 21 Uhr verschieben.
Wird keines von diesen besagten Uhrzeiten eintreffen, werden wir es auf Sonntag verschieben.
Die genaue Uhrzeit werdet ihr am Sonntag auf den Imager in der Gemeinde "NULP" lesen können.
and the Babelfish translation:
Shorah dear municipality,
because of the current event (MOUL server down), we have too follow decided:
If the server runs before 18 o'clock again, we as intended to continue.
If the server runs after 18 o'clock upto max. 20:30 clock again, we will shift the mystery on 21 o'clock.
None of these mentioned clock times will arrive, we will shift it on Sunday.
_ the exact time will it to Sunday on the Imager in the municipality “NULP” read can.
As you can see, Babelfish is not very good with grammar. So, my interpretation:
I had a quick calculation of these times considering 18:00 means cavern time. This seems unlikely since 18:00 cavern time is 2:00am in Germany. This would still be the most likely, though, IMHO, since it is even less likely to be German time since the originally scheduled 12:00 cavern time is 20:00 in Germany which is beyond the stated 18:00. So, I am at a loss to interpret the times in this message. Is it possible to have times posted in the forum converted automatically to the local time of each individual reader as per their profiles? In the middle of all this, most of Europe, including Germany, is switching to Daylight/Summer time overnight tonight. That makes the 2:00am Germany time actually 3:00am Germany. Sigh. In short, your interpretation of the timings is as good as any and perhaps moot since the servers are still down. Yeah, yeah, I've reread this several times and it doesn't make any sense to me either so I'm leaving it the way it is.
