Revision as of 03:46, 21 March 2016

This pages explains and describes the timeline for determining who will put on future alt.gothic Convergences℠ and where they will be.

Contents

What Is alt.gothic Convergence℠?

Convergence℠ is explained on it's own page, but we feel it's worth reiterating the core purpose here. alt.gothic Convergence℠ is the annual party put on by the denizens of alt.gothic for the denizens of alt.gothic and ALL their friends that squishes together hundreds of net.goths from around the globe and their friends into a single city for a weekend of socializing, booze, musical events and sweet debauchery.

Bid Selection Process

There are 4 steps to getting a bid chosen to be a Convergence:

  1. Bids are entered.
  2. The C*B*L vet the bids to ensure they are within the bounds of reason[1] and fulfill the requirements.
  3. alt.gothic ratifies the bids.
  4. The voters vote for the bid they want to go to.

The events occur on the dates laid out in the timeline

Disclaimer

This is the official timeline. It is not necessarily how things WILL work, but how they SHOULD. Keep an eye on alt.gothic, alt.gothic.convergence and this website for updates to this information. We are not getting paid to do this and we do have day jobs so sometimes shit happens.

Convergence 23 Timetable

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!

Now for the message you've all been waiting for! It's time, once again, to start submitting any proposal you may have for Convergence number 23! Anyway, any of you spooksters interested in bidding, get your proposals gussied up and contact us right away!

Email carriemonster@gmail.com or shoot Carrie Gough a facebook message and we can help you get on the way to a glorious party.

The timeline for C23 bid proposal and voting goes like this

Wednesday June 29 2016

Submission deadline.

By this date, Bidding Committees must have submitted their Bid Proposals and preliminary event budgets for inclusion on the ballot. They will have a web account set up on altgothic.com to host their proposal web sites and site credentials will be sent to bid committees.

See the Bids page for information on how to create and submit a Convergence proposal.

Note that the person that submits the bid will be the point of contact with The C*B*L. Any references to a Committee Chair in the process refer to that person.

Sunday July 3 2016

Bids go live.

Bidding Committees *must* post their Bid Proposals to the alt.gothic.* news groups and they may open their web sites to the public. Posting to regional mailing lists, web communities, blogs, social media etc. is acceptable but not essential. If you don't have a newsfeed that can access alt.gothic, Google can help you out. (It would be in the bid's BEST INTERESTS to post everywhere! Convergence FB group, altgothic FB group, LJ, Tumblr, Twitter, anywhere and everywhere you can think of!)

Discussion BEGINS. Bids are *locked* during the discussion period: the Bidding Committees may no longer make any changes to their bids. The proposal websites are frozen. The denizens of alt.gothic discuss their ideals and reservations regarding the bids. Committees answer questions. Bids may be rejected by consensus if they do not please the people, although they are no longer required to be specifically ratified.

Saturday July 9 2016

Discussion Period ENDS

Speak now or forever shut it! The voting system is announced on alt.gothic.

Bid Clarification Period BEGINS

The Bidding Committees may modify their bid websites to incorporate clarifications of the bid that came up during discussion.

Sunday July 17 2016

Bid Clarification Period ENDS

C*B*L Bid Review BEGINS

Give us a couple of days - we all have day jobs after all. The Bidding Committees may no longer make any changes to their bids. The proposal websites are frozen. The C*B*L will review the bids to ensure the changes are appropriate.

Wednesday July 20 2016

Voting Period BEGINS

Rock the vote and have a ball, that's what this is about after all!! Once Peter Coffin (aka:Hellsop) fires up the ballot machine: The people decide.

Want to vote but can't remember the URL? Here it is: http://www.altgothic.com/voter/

Friday July 29 2016

Voting Period ENDS

When we figure everyone who's going to vote has got around to it (or we're tired of waiting), voting is closed and results will be reviewed and tallied.

Saturday July 30 2016

Committees notified of Results

Flying Monkeys only move so fast. The C*B*L notifies the Chairs of the bids of the results.

Sunday July 31 2016

EVERYONE KNOWS!

So now let's get to work! Throw your mittens around your kittens and away we go!!

Looking forward to an excellent bidding season!

The Selected Bid

The selected bid will be announced following the closing of voting and verification of the counted votes. At that time, an announcement will be posted to the alt.gothic.* news groups and [altgothic.com]. The authority to planning and execute one Convergence in accordance with the published proposal along with permission to use the Convergence service mark subject to The C*B*L's ongoing approval will then be transferred to the selected committee.
