*cough cough*

EDIT:
Point being, we need some one to be uncon lead. Either Zammm or Rush likely has the most relevant experience so one, if not both should be heading it.

I don't want anyone to feel obligated to run UnCon. I want it to be a volunteer effort jointly between staff and the community.

So where do we sign up for running events? What do we need to get approval, and when do you want this to happen?

The sooner the better imo.

Over the next week or so I wanna get everything worked out. If wants to share anything, this thread is as good a place as any.

We need:

1. Prizes (any kind of custom art and any kind of gaming products are especially welcome)
2. Contests (pbp games of any kind, or any ideas for other types on contests. we will likely have lots of trivia, but anything is welcome)
3. Guests Judges (either to run contests, or to help judge contests that need multiple judges)
4. Special Guests (if you know of any writers, artists, designers, or other personalities who might be interested in Q&A, that would be sweet!)
4. Ideas (if you have any suggestions that aren't included above, feel free to mention them)
5. PEP

I was never told if everyone got their prizes from the last UnCon. Organizing that was such a mess: Mike wanted me to create a list of what I thought everyone should get, then told me that my list was ill-informed without really ever giving me parameters other than "We got a lot of Hasbro product laying around". Then he got tossed and Solace made it way easier, but I still don't know if all the winners got their prizes. Such a shame. I sometimes feel like the problem with prizes specific to that running of UnCon was what killed it. Probably taking too much credit for myself.

Was that the UnCon after the last forum port? If so, I thought that never actually ended up happening.

Of all the things to run into, UnCon is probably not on the list. Take it slow.

The forums work fine.

All the moderation/admin staff need to do is approve or okay individuals requests.

And lets not act like even if they were to participate this is a thing that would require hours of intense focus.


The sooner the better. Need to keep moving traffic in until the blogs wiki etc. are up.

Uhhh, this will require a lot of hours to get organized lol. :teach:

I don't want to lose steam, but I also don't want to rush into disaster, either. I think a weekish is a good timeline for us to get stuff set up, and we can adjust that as needed.

"who wants to run contests"
"i do"
"what do you want to do"
"blah blah blah"
"okay go"

the end

HOURS OF WORK AND FOCUS

You know you're grossly oversimplifying it. It is going to be organized.

The last UnCon (the one that didn't happen due to prize issues) took literally months to plan. We're trying to make an UnCon on a fresh forum with only two survivors (Rush+zammm) of the initial planning core.

This will take time, and it will be well worth every second.

Yeah, I also didn't mean we are doing it in a week, just we will see what kind of timeline we are looking at in the next week.

And so people say to me, "How do I know if a word is real?" You know, anyone who's read a children's book knows that love makes things real. If you love a word, use it! That makes it real. Being in the dictionary is an artificial distinction; it doesn't make the word any more real than any other word. If you love a word, it becomes real.
