Can I suggest an alternative data gathering method, I've put each hour
in a week in a poll, for each slot you have 3 options

Yes, If needs be and no

if we all were to fill in this poll with what suits each of us we should
easily see the overlaps,

I just picked a week, ignore the dates, Assume times are UTC. Any
thoughts on this? I think it would allow us to explore all options
