Quick Arisia note!

Dearest Arisia program participants: You'll have gotten an e-mail last night letting you know that you have but 24 hours left to bid for panels. I want to highlight one line in particular: "Please note that we will not consider you for a program item if you do not rate it as well as include a few sentences as to why you would be a good fit for the panel."

As of last year, we track managers were specifically instructed to not put anyone on a panel for which they had not done this. I'm seeing a lot of blank spaces in our system, which can = a lot of disappointed people who don't get to be on panels. So please take some time today to tell us why you should be on that panel you really want!

Dear friendly neighborhood Literature Track Manager,

I did not get an e-mail last night letting me know that I had but twenty-four hours left to bid for panels, but I made my final decisions—complete with exhaustive writeup for each selection—on Saturday night; am I good?

You are! Your writeups are wonderfully comprehensive. :)

Great! Thank you! I spent most of Saturday on them . . .

Seriously -- I'm now desperately hoping I can get the Gravity Falls panel to run because of your writeup.

w00t! That would be wonderful.

I did my selections early on, and had been meaning to go back and fill in the blanks but had forgotten it.

Finally done! I got my session expired a couple of times, so I am somewhat laconic.

I will come back with more to say later today.

I write all my Arisia comments in a text file and then copy-paste them, saving paranoiacally every time, because otherwise Zambia boots me whenever I think about something.

I did my selections the other day, though I generally tried not to be *too* verbose in the panelist's statements. I'll do a quick pass over them again.
