7832It's Almost Time!
- May 22, 2007Hey guys,
I've been working the last few weeks with Anthony, Aranel Took, and
Tanaqui to get our website ready for the 2007 awards. Thank you for
your patience as we got ready! We will start accepting nominations on
June 1, and they'll remain open until July 15. I am as excited to get
started as you are, and I just want to make sure everything is running
as smoothly as possible so no one gets frustrated when we start the
Before that happens, though, I need your help testing the new website.
You'll need to be a member of the Yahoo group mefa-discussion
(http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mefa-discussion/) to help with testing,
so if you're not a member please join up. If you have some extra time
we'd love your help.
I'll post more about what exactly testers should do at that group. And
I'll remind you guys when nominations are open.
While I'm thinking about it, it's worth reminding everyone: MEFA dates
start at Greenwich Mean Time. You can find the current "official" time
by going to any page on our website (or hitting reload) and looking in
the bottom-left corner. It's the line starting with "Page Served at:
". GMT is not necessarily the same as your local time!
So when I say voting starts on June 1, that means it will start on
12:00:01 AM, June 1, GMT. Here on the U.S. East coast where I live,
that will actually be at about 8 PM on May 31. Similarly, nominations
will close at 11:59:59 PM, July 15, GMT -- which for me works out to
be around 8 PM on July 15. It will be a different time depending on
where you live, so watch that time on our web page.
Bye for now!
