    I put in for a few times, I'll probably put in a few more after I finalize what I want to do/see.

    Do we just show up to the table for the times we signed up for or do we need to do we need to check in or something before that?

    As long as you're there a few minutes before your time starts, that's fine. If for some reason you can't be there on time or can't be there at all, that's when we'd like to know as far ahead of time as possible so we can plan accordingly. Contact info for the JC/FF staff will be available at the table in case you need to call/text rather than stop by the table.

    Weird, I've never seen that error. You can always just post or PM your times and we can add them for you.

    Dang, still no one's signed up with me.

    Someone sign up to volunteer with me! I'd really rather not do this alone. :p

    Awesome!

    Rew, I wouldn't worry too much about being at the table by yourself. If past Celebrations are any indication, there is hardly ever only one person sitting at the table. What always ends up happenning is we'll have the one or two people who are "officially" scheduled at the table, and anywhere from 1-10 other people just hanging out there waiting for their next panel, waiting for friends who are meeting them there, etc. The table essentially becomes a hub for JCers. A very popular hub.

    I don't think I'll be able to volunteer for a shift, but I intend to stop by often to meet people. :)

    I removed myself from the list because, alas, unforeseen circumstances have arisen, and I won't be able to attend CV this year. :(

    (And drat, I was looking forward to talking Zelda with 2ndQuest. :p)

    Probably for the best- it'll probably take me until C6 to finish Twilight Princess, let alone Skyward Sword and the DS games ;)

    I put in for a couple of hours at the table, though it's not much; I'll put more in as I know more of what my schedule will be like. I was planning on Saturday, but I ended up volunteering for Offical Pix and extra shift on Saturday since they were short for the morning.

    I'm sure that I'll get time in, and I'll probably plan on being at the table at about 5:30 on Saturday until the end of the night when I get ready to go to Endor. :p

    Hey people!

    Please stop adding yourself to shifts already filled and instead fill the EMPTY shifts! :p

    Yes, please fill in the empty slots people. We really shouldn't have 5 people signing up for the same time slot. We probably won't even have that many chairs.

    EVERYONE PLEASE READ

    In the vein of what the guys have posted above, just a bit of clarification.

    We think people have mis-interpreted how we intended to set up the sign-up. It's only 2 names we want/need on the actual schedule.

    We don't mind if more people hang around if it isn't negatively impacting on why we have the table in the first place (which is to show off FF/JC/TFN) and anyone that comes up to the table is dealt with politely and in a way that positively reflects on our organisation. But we also need all the slots filled as much as possible.

    So what we are going to do is go through the spreadsheet and remove any entry after the second person's name from the listing (with the exception of the special instance of Joe's time at the table) as to be fair we should deal with it on a first come - first served basis. Anyone that has their name removed doesn't mean we don't want or need your help, but we need it directed to the overall effort across the weekend and such if you wish to sign up for one of the two specific slots then you will have to do so in an empty one that suits their schedules.

    I'm going to be going through the spreadsheet in around 12 hours from this post before I head off to fly out. Between then and now if anyone wants to they can make arrangements with the other people in that time slot to shuffle things around if they really need to be at the table at that time.


    Please let me re-iterate: none of this means that we don't want your help at the table, nor that you can't be at the table at that time. What it comes down to is that we need specific people to be responsible for the table and what is both on and under the table. As long as it doesn't become detrimental to what we are doing with having the table there, more people can be there with their friends between events. But the two people who have their names down are going to be the ones responsible that: everyone that comes up to the table gets to talk to someone about FF/JC/TFN; people don't just keep taking multiples of the freebies on offer; and that the equipment on and under the table is looked after (especially important to me as most of it will be mine). This is nothing more than an organisational issue.

    Thanks everyone, and feel free to ask any questions that you have about it.

    I've signed up for an hour Friday afternoon... probably will be there longer than the hour but that's all I can be relatively sure of right now.

    I've made the alteration to the spreadsheet. Again, it doesn't mean that you cannot be at the table, but we would like you guys to try and fill existing times so we have some known coverage.
