Event Volunteering


Excited yet? The party is only a few weeks away (September 24 - September 30) and now the events are decided! We're all ready to go, right? Nope! We need hosts now, and that's where you guys come in. For those who don't know, the Get-Together is when the community comes together and participates in different events to have fun with other members. All of the descriptions describe what the event is about, but as for how they're actually run is up to the hosts! If you'd like to host an event just post what you're interested in volunteering for.

Volunteers are required:
  • To manage events for a minimum of three days. Events may run for up to seven or run on staggered days. A public calendar will be used to mark the dates and times your event is running.
  • To know the kind of event they're taking. For example, if you have little experience in ROM hacking, you shouldn't take a ROM hacking event.
  • To have good time management. Things must be timely - event posts and planning, for example. You must also be ready to post threads at specific times - these are times that you specify, or the default event starting time.

Anything in orange has a host, or a co-host already and doesn't need anyone else volunteering for those events. We will add more hosts if they are required.

You can also volunteer to host as much as you want, but you won't be guaranteed to get everything you asked for. As soon as you're accepted you'll be given an event organisers badge and access to the planning forum where you can plan your event. More specific details will be given to those who are accepted as event organisers.

Event organisers are also encouraged to make their event names fit the anniversary theme.

There's still other events you can volunteer for, iSketch, etc! Buuut... for specific events like that we need to actually see skill levels and I couldn't find a photography gallery of yours anywhere on here, iirc.

I'll volunteer for the 10 year banner collab.
Is that like a Graphics thing?

Here are some samples:
Photobucket 1 (everything INSIDE of albums is a bit older)
Photobucket 2

If you need more samples let me know.

Edit: Or if it's not a graphics thing I can volunteer for Caption contest or Pokecommunity Highs.

Now that I think about it, the slogan thing would be fun to host, since I'm not doing the make a Pokemon thing, sadly. At least I'll still get to participate.

I'd be happy to volunteer for The PokéCommunity highs, it's something relevant to what I suggested a couple of weeks ago. Oh and I'd really enjoy doing it.. ^^

From what it seems, they don't need another host anymore.

Unless one of them backs out last minute, they're not going to accept another host for that event.

Just a little info for anyone who wants to help with the gaming events, I have PS3 games covered already. So if you own an Xbox 360, have gold membership, and own many online games, feel free to volunteer to host games for that console. Otherwise, PC games are still open for hosts. Also, I don't mind co-hosters who want to help me with gaming events on the PS3.

Thank you for the skype host consideration. Considering I have enough bandwidth to host 25 people, it should be fun.

I could co-host on the PS3. :) I can also host during other times on the PS3 if people can't make it for the first round.

I made a Chat Room for the PCB-Day. I've been researching what would be a nice public chat and i think this is good... If you guys wanna keep this thats cool. Make me a event person if you wanna. it can be used mobile too so if people wanna participate they can participate away from the computer at least with the chat. BirthdayChat

We'll be using #thepokecommunity for that, which can be accessed on mobiles too. Plus that other link is off-site and we'd rather keep things on-site where we can, minus a few things.

No, these events will not be Pokemon events, but rather actual forum events - read the descriptions. :3 But overall we're not really accepting ideas but you can still suggest however chances of it going through is very low.
