The date for the Get-Together is yet to be decided, but will run for four days. Full list is up, so go go go!

So down to the events! I've compiled the events list for this year's Get-Together! Like last year, I'm opening event leader positions on a first-come, first-serve basis. These are the events running this year! (You will notice that I've omitted almost none of the suggestions, and in fact, I'm still listing them, so here's the preliminary list.) You have until August 6 to pick an event to host.

To be the organizer of an event, simply post with the event(s) you'd like to take. If you suggested the event, you will have the highest priority over hosting an event. Please note that all events at least one staff member hosting or supervising the event (as a backup) and one host (yourself), though you may have up to two other hosts, all of whom you are free to pick (though the moderator may turn you down). If your event is a competition and requires judges, once you have been accepted as an event organizer you may elect them (in cooperation with the other organisers supervising your event).

We require if you host events:
- That you will be able to manage it for four days. (With sleep, of course.)
- That you know how to plan.
- For you to manage time and get events up in a timely manner.
- Knowledge of what you're actually hosting. We recommend that it's your field.

Did you know that your event can have prizes? You could request Rukario's permission to allow a Supporter gift prize if you want, but for your contest or whatever, you can offer an emblem to your design! More info will be available once I start approving people.

For organising an event, you get a pretty badge from now until the event ends.

You also get special access to a forum where you can organise your events. You'll find more information about hosting an event in there.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them too.

Get-Together 2010 events

Please note that an event without any hosts will be dropped from this list. Events colored in green do not require any more hosts. If you're the event organizer and you need me to list that an event needs more hosts or judges, PM me. Some events have fancy names, some don't. PM me if you want to change their names or descriptions.

Obligatory cut-and-paste

The PokéCommunity Get-Together is a member-managed event where we try to make sure we can bring as many PC members as we can to the community (by mass email). For the last time and a few times before that where we've had a Get-Together, it's been about events. The main event - we have one giant chat to talk our heads off (and this all the Get-Together was about for the first three times we've had it).

(Oh, and it's not a real-life event. It's all held on PC.)

As I volunteered to host the Wi-Fi Battle Tourney in the previous thread, I'll go ahead and do the same thing here.

I guess I wasn't the one who initially suggested it, but I did suggest to make a massive round robin as opposed to a mini four-day tourney, which in my opinion wouldn't work.

Here's hoping this year's get-together will be one to remember!

And Franceschi will be the staff member for it. If noone else wants to host too then I'll find someone. XD;

I can offer my services for the Map-off, or the small writing contest, whichever one takes me. Preferably the former. Both I would probably need help with.

I'll just put my hand up for hosting the Photography and Graphics contests with the option of having a co-host for either, so anyone else is free to claim another spot as far as I'm concerned. Maybe it was a given that I had to host these but eh, better safe than sorry right?

I also wouldn't mind having an input in the skype manifesto since the program is more or less always open on my laptop, so if it needs a staff member, I'll gladly help out there.

Depending on the time period (NOT LATE AUGUST, NO...), I can hold the Map-off contest if no one's available.
Even tho' my timezone is screwy (GMT +2 : Bucharest Athens Istanbul) and I might most probably update while you guys are sleeping ... :O
Well, okay. I'm here just to chat with people. Don't really care about signatures and stuff.

@manipulation. As you can see on the thread name, i don't think it's enough to call it in the previous thread as this is the thread where you tell what you wanna be in. I have also written my self on the isketch competetion and if i dont get to do it for the sole reason that you called it on the last thread, them im gonna be really annoyed.

I can do the WarioWare DIY contest if my Flipnote Contest (I want to use the Ugomemo tags, and I have a helper all lined up) doesn't get accepted, and I can only do it if this will be hosted between the days of August 3-14, and 22-31. Those are the days I will be free.

Do the best with whatever you can today.
Then tomorrow, you will have surely progressed.

Just a heads up on that one, myself and Luke will be hosting the Pokemon & Trainer deisgns as the staff members to look over them, you're still going to be hosting it of course, just letting you know that that's what we agreed :]
