12c Post-mortem


This is an excellent result in only 12 hours, thank you all! As you can see, there are areas where we still need a lot of help, so help our Awards Pomotions team to spread the word and get more people to come and volunteer in our poll.



So, what nappens next?

Check who else is with you in the choices you made, wave to them, and and roll up your sleeves!

Each group can "get together" by posting an initial journal entry to tackle their topic(s) -- please don't go ahead and post a new entry before checking if one already exists for your task, perhaps created by a fellow team member (or... sorry, but I've created one for task 10, because it's urgent).

Once you've touched base with your teams, and maybe you decide you need other, more specific threads, fine, post new entries and make sure you tag them as per our tagging instructions. This is important, to make sorting and filtering of entries more manageable.

A lot of ideas have floated about, and many are recorded in Pandë's "MEFA Rebooted: Next Steps" post here. Go there to  find what others have already said on a particular matter, or ask the community at large for more ideas about your specific topics.

Anyone else who hasn't volunteered for a task is welcome to contribute to every thread, but please respect those who are leading on that topic.

Anyone who's stuck for ideas, is confused (I am!), needs input from other areas or from the Dark Tower, please post a thread with a title that clearly shows you're expecting us all to come and help, vote, or whatever is needed.

Good luck!

As my name isn't on the list for what I volunteered for does this mean I am not needed at the moment? (Trying not to be paranoid and presume you all hate me and don't want me...)

Nooooooooo! It just means an oversight! Don't doubt that you're needed!

What was your task? I can likely made the edit.

I volunteered for

1)

4)

and 12a)

Although 4 has many volunteers, I know, and I doubt I am necessary.

I offered after Russa had gone to work, I think so I am not on yet.


You're on the list now. That's what lunchtimes are there for...

As of 1:30 pm UK time I think I've got everyone, please shout otherwise!

Believe you missed me under #8-- Volunteer Resources w/ Binka, Oshun, and Pande.

You're listed under 8 now. I have you under four categories, unless I'm confusing myself: 4, 6, 8, 10. Is that ok, do you want to drop one?

Those are my numbers - *waves*

Probably won't be able to check in at all until either really late tonight, US Central time, or sometime tomorrow, but *waves*

Dwim

Wow, um… I'm actually listed here under none of the categories I volunteered for. Copy/pasting from the poll: 4. Ratings and eligibility policy, including content filtering, 5. Overall Awards policies and process, 9. Proposed Awards Calendar and Timings

I'd really like to stick with 9 (I already have ideas!), but if I'm not needed in 5 (Award Policies), feel free to put me elsewhere.

Sorry! Spreadsheet trouble, probably. I'll run away and fix it.

I kind of fancied categorization, but so did a whole lot of other people, so I signed up for #7, voting and scoring, instead. If you think I could be more use elsewhere, let me know.

And I know it'll settle down soon, but I got a headache working my way through all this, lol.

I'm sure that's fine to start with. At the moment it's more about everyone getting started, and then time will tell if the task is too big or too small.

Thank you!

I assume that the MEFA Yahoo group will close soon.

I think we should set up a new Yahoo group for the new awards, and ask the admins of the old Yahoo group for permission to invite all interested members to join the new group.

I'd be glad to liaise with the old MEFA group. Let me know if you want me to, and I will work up a message.

I just volunteered today. Is it too late? :(

It's never too late! I'm not sure if anyone has responded to you, so please feel free to browse the discussions, and if there are Task Forces you would like to join, jump into the conversation. The posts are tagged, so you should be able to see what has already been done, and what is presently happening.

Welcome!

Russa, in the poll thread I asked if I could be added to 3b... they might now thing I attempted a coup given the summarizing I have done so far LOL Can you add me to that team above? Please?

I have, but I'll also e-mail willtherebetime, as she's got the master spreadsheet with all volunteers.

I volunteered for 10. Awards promotion

Excellent! Has willtherebetime contacted you to include you in her list?

I'm in catch up mode tonight...

The New Tolkien Fanfiction Awards - help needed

User elfscribe5 referenced to your post from The New Tolkien Fanfiction Awards - help needed saying: [...] and then stop by the Volunteer Roles thread at http://tome-awards.livejournal.com/3611.html [...]

I volunteered for taskforce 10 Promoters. I'm not sure if I'm already on the list or not.

Chris

Hi, obsidianj, don't worry, we're not maintaining the initial list. I've sent your post to willtherbetime, who is our volunteer organiser, and she'll contact you. If she hasn't drop me another reply here and I'll chase her.


*waves* I saw the announcement on the LJ SWG comm today; I'm happy to help out with anything, except for fundraising, that doesn't need coding or graphics.

Hello, with_rainfall, welcome! I've forwarded your reply here to willtherebetime, who looks after all of us volunteers, and she'll contact tou. If she doesn't drop me a note here or as a PM. Start thinking what you'd fancy doing by browsing around all the discussions in this community.!
