Theme Camp applications are still open. I would not expect to hear anything until weeks (or a couple of months) after the application deadline of April 29.
Those who think they can and those who think they can't are both right.

placement

Post by zifra » Thu Apr 22, 2010 11:31 pm

the placement team are volunteers. The task of processing the huge number of applications and then fitting them into the available space must keep them up for many nights.

I know they do appreciate swag and treats, and lord knows they deserve them, in the end their responsibility is to give priority to those who will be the most interactive. For in a large part it is the it is that makes the festival what it is.

I would not count on an answer until mid July, if it is before that, it is a bonus!

If you planned a nicely interactive group, you will get in.
At least that has been my experience.

All Hail the Placement Volunteers!

All indications are that we won't know until July I just wish they'd give a nod to acceptance before placement if at all possible. We're bringing a large theme camp to the playa for the first time this year and of course we've already started building. If we find out in July that we're not going to get EAT's, it's going to be sad times for our crew. We'll be building well into Wednesday of the event if that happens. Also, my squeeze is taking off school and work and flying in from Sydney a week early [i]for[/i] build week. I can't imagine how we'd pass the time being at home that week.

Also, anyone know if my not having my ticket yet is going to jeopardize the application? All of the other camp planners listed in the app have them; I'm just a slacker. Man, I hope that doesn't bump us. Our camp is going to be amazingly interactive.

I really don't think that they look at ticket status of all those in the camp, because it would be a real pain in the ass to cross reference those sets of infomation, especially as names don't go into the questionare, except for the contact.

Theme camp leads who have purchased a ticket are taken slightly more seriously than those who have not.

re: Placement announcement. "mid-July"?, "July 1st"? I personally like the flexibility in "early July"

and

They made an error not turning off the unsubscribed messaging when they just purged the list of 2009 subscribers to make way for 2010. 2010 camp leads will be subscribed to Placement-Announce very soon!

Dude. You just MADE my fucking day. I just got an unsubscribe message, and promptly -freaked- out, going "Oh, maybe this is the early list of people that aren't getting placed, what did I do wrong, omg omg omg". I love you just a little bit.

moose, you seem to have some inside info. So what did that exchange with Nyx mean? They send you an unsubscribe if you're not going to be placed, and don't tell you anything if your camp is still in the running?

It meant he was kidding. He doesn't have inside information. (Sorry moose)

No. Camp approval and Placement will be announced in early July. You will be receiving Placement-Announce emails soon, and throughout the months leading up to the event.

The question I have, and I did not believe this warrented a new thread, is when will they begin to list the various theme camps under 2010 Theme Camps on the main BM site? They're still stuck on 2009. You don't need to be placed to be listed. You don't even need to have requested a spot to be listed (though admittedly it helps). It seems to me that by this time in previous years we could begin scouring the theme camps just to see who's new, who's returning, who looks like they might be vaguely interesting. This way people looking for theme camps would have a clue as to who to contact and what might be expected from them

Oh I get the fact that The Hatted One would rather use the resources of the BMOrg perhaps differently, and that hiring a bunch of stoned useless hippies to implement the data would be a maddening ordeal, but still I should think that by now those camps who sent their information in early should begin showing up under 2010.

What say you?

Dr Pyro:

been having similar puzzlements...maybe with last year having a bunch like ~130 camps not being 'approved' that the org/llc wants to review all the applications before they start listing them.

have even tried taking the link to previous year's camps and then modiying it to what the link to 2010 might look like...nope 404 error...
