PokéCommunity Get-Together 2012
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.
