When is signups?

february, its in the other thread.

E:

tbd; will fill out once a solid schedule begins to develop, but the general idea is:

February = AC Sign-Ups

March - June = Weekly AC Meetings

Mid-June = Polls Open; Tournaments begin

EarlyJuly = Presentation Sign-Ups

Mid-July = Polls Close

Early August = Presentations Due

Mid-August = Awards Ceremony

Late-August = Tournaments wrap up; Prize distribution begins

The Anniversary page is now up, and as such so are the Awards Committee sign-ups!

there's no official form or anything; you send a message to Anton asking if you can sign up, that's all

Also send it to Edo according to the page on the wiki.

But what about SonicMario? He just added himself. Did they let him on?

I... don't believe so. If he didn't, then his name is going to be taken off the list unless he applies properly. You'd have to ask Anton, Edo, or 22 to be sure, though.

Either way, just adding yourself to the committee won't do anything, anyway. You need to contact the Awards Staff in order to be added to the group and the hidden board.

All he said was this:

Joining the Committee this year ^^

Those were the exact words from the edit summary.

I'll join this year. I had plans to last year, but I decided to wait until 2016, now that I experienced on presenting awards (S6, A26).

I... I sent in a full application. I decided it would be better to be safe than sorry and send that in. If it was too much work for you I'm really sorry and I'll refrain from doing that.

Sorry about that Blocky. I PMed Anton and Edo about it cause I realized too late that I was supposed to apply first. It's been a while since I last joined the committee and simply signing up was how it worked before.

I read on the wiki page that all you needed to do was tell Anton and Edo that you were signing up, but just to be safe I sent a full-ish application.

I wish I could sign up, but even checking the private board wouldn't help the fact that the meetings are at 1AM in my time zone.

Yeah sending a full application is fine but it's honestly a bit of a lax process.  Don't worry either way if you sent us a complete resumé or just said "hey i wanna join".

I wish I could sign up, but even checking the private board wouldn't help the fact that the meetings are at 1AM in my time zone.

The meetings are set at a time where the bulk of users would be able to attend, but yeah it's a recurring problem that non-North American users have some issues with attendance as a result.  While attending meetings is important, it's not critical.  Meeting logs are posted after each one and decisions that have been made can be brought up and reversed in a later meeting.  Discussions also take place in the Awards Staff underground board.



In addition, we'll be going through applications shortly.  Some of them might not have been sent a message to acknowledge that we've received it but that's likely because I just got back from work and Edo and 22 are away right now, but I promise that tonight we will filter through what we've got and send out results.

Heya, a heads up to a change in policy.  We will be stopping AC sign-ups after we process these last few that have been sent in.  This is the largest committee we've ever had and I'm quite surprised at how eager everyone's been!  Even if you missed the cut you are still welcome to hang out in the awards channel on irc or make posts within this public board here.  Thanks to everyone who signed up !!

Are non members allowed to brainstorm ideas to the AC in chat?
