>My thoughts are we'll need many more volunteers. ^__^
We will, and I'll probably put the call out in March. I won't draft the
2004 volunteers into 2005. Everyone will have to sign up again. Thus, I'll
be clearing out the Staff group. Doesn't mean you can't volunteer again.
In fact, I'd love it if you would! I just want to keep it down to just
staff and I get confused easily. Have no worries, nothing goes on over
there that can't be said over here. The archive is public. Anyone can read
the messages. It just keeps this list a lot cleaner of all the boring
staffy things. Like this Post Mortem. Some of you may be getting tired of
it. Some may not. Well, this is the prper place for the Post Mortem, but
once everything is decided, you don't need to sit through all the posts
about category viability and which authors have been contacted and what not.
We can do that admin-y stuff over at the Staff Group and spare everyone else
So, that becaem quite a tangent, huh? Anyway, I'll put out a call for
volunteers, much like we had last year in March. To get you thinking about
it, this is what we'll need: *Author Contacters (remember you can get an
author's permission when you nominate, if you'd like. I'll provide a form
for them in the Files section that you can copy into an e-mail. Otherwise,
staff will contact authors.)
*Categorizers (these people gather nominations by the 1st choice category
and collect them so at the end of Nomination Season we can see what's viable
and what's not. This basically takes the place of the Status-of-Stories
Maintainers at ASC.)
We won't worry about Vote Counters until Voting Season is closer. And heck,
we may not need them except as a backup, if we get the electronic stuff to
do all we think it can do.
>Actually, I think it'll be more than worth the extra effort. Even though I
generally don't like movieverse, having its own category will be nice. I
love the idea of having storieds sorted through the time period.
I think some of these suggestions are ready for polls.
