    So FanForce/Jedi Council has been approved to have a table in the fanhall. We have great plans for the banners and other things, but we can't do anything without volunteers manning the table. This is where all of you come in.

    How do I sign up?
    Go to this spreadsheet and edit your username and real name into an empty cell.

    The shifts are one hour long, but I really encourage everyone to sign up for 2 hours at the time, one hour is really short.

    Is it difficult?
    No! Basically you sit at the table and when people come you tell them how fun it is to be a member either of your local FF or at the forums. You don't need to know the contact info for every FF chapter around the globe, rather it's important to just show what FanForce/Jedi Council is about.

    Do I get anything for volunteering?
    You will get a great time. I'm one of those people who spend almost more time at the table than anywhere else. Most of the time people show up and present who they are on the boards and you get to talk to a lot of people you have only met online before.

    All volunteers will also get VIP-ship on the boards.

    Also I understand that people might want to wait for signing up until they know the rest of the Celebration Schedule, but please sign up as soon as possible.

    If both spots are already filled on a time when you want to sit you can sign up as a back-up and come to the table anyway to see if any help is needed./>

    I'll volunteer for the table, if I'm able to go. :p

    But yeah, I'd probably have fewer panels and guests I'd be dying to see than most people.

    Weird. I was able to open it up earlier today, but now it says:

    "We're sorry.

    We're sorry, an unknown error has occurred loading your spreadsheet."

    Hmm, strange. For me if it doesn't work the first time I click it works if I open it in a new tab or window.

    I plan to spend 99% of my free time at the table, like always! I don't know my volunteer schedule yet so I can't sign up for specific times. Thanks for organizing this Obi Anne :D :D

    Hi there! This isn't me volunteering, but I was wondering if any of you minded if I came around the table at different points and asked some interview questions? I volunteer at a local college radio station here in Alaska, and will be interviewing random fans about Star Wars and such. Don't know the exact questions yet, but figured I'd see how you all felt about it before I just suddenly appeared at the table. [face_peace]

    I'll volunteer time, but it does say that I'm not allowed to access that spreadsheet.

    That probably wouldn't be a problem. There should be a ton of people hanging out there at various points.

    I signed up for some shifts. The first time I went to the spreadsheet page it gave me that error, but refreshing the screen got past it.

    I would like to volunteer some of my time, but I want to know what the schedule is like first..especially since I'm volunteering with Anne at Official Pix (if she pick me, which I REALLY hope she does) so I'm going to wait for that schedule so that I don't have any conflicts. :)

    I'd be happy to volunteer for a couple of shifts. Will wait for a general schedule like most others. I'm sure we'll find people to fill the time slots.

    Worked by doing that. As it's looking sparse now, I'll be back to put down for some hours once there's a proper schedule out. Expect something between 4-6 hours from me, give or take.

    I signed up for 3-5 on Friday as well. I may only be able to do an hour, but we shall see.

    Just signed up for a couple shifts. :D

    Some questions, though: I have no experience/knowledge of FanForce, but I do have quite a bit of familiarity with various parts of the Jedi Council Forums. Will that be alright? Also, will I be able to change my schedule if it turns out something comes up during the times that I signed up for my shift(s)?

    Thanks! And this should be fun. [face_mischief]

    If history is any indication, Fan Force groups will have fliers and the like, so that helps quite a bit.
