PSR Marathon 2016 Committee Applications Thread

Post by Keizaron » Sun Apr 03, 2016 4:17 am

We are currently accepting applications to take part in the committee team. The idea is to have around 10 people who are heavily involved in this process. We are currently looking for people who specialize in at least one of the following: creation of stream layouts, PR team, schedule creation, tech

For transparency, the committee will be selected by the three admins: Dabomstew, werster and myself.

Applications close on Friday, April 15th.

If you would like to be part of the PSR Marathon 2016 Committee, please leave a post using the guideline below:

Twitch name -
Best form of contact outside of Discord -
Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset -
Why you want to be part of the committee -

So for example...

Twitch name - Keizaron
Best form of contact outside of Discord - Twitter (@Keizaron)
Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset - Scheduling, PR team, stream layouts
Why you want to be part of the committee - Last year's marathon was a ton of fun, and I feel like we can improve it further and make this year's marathon even better!

Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset - scheduling and PR with the hispanic community and I could be a link between the PSR committee and a possible spanish re-stream as I'm a staff member of Speedruns Español (we handle the GDQs spanish re-streams).
Why you want to be part of the committee - last year was a fun marathon and I got to show my speedgame, now I want to help others showcase their games

Why you want to be part of the committee - I mucked up last year's so badly, I could see why you wouldn't want me back. However, the time frame for this year has me settled into my apartment the week before the marathon :D
I just like to see the community grow.

Best form of contact outside of Discord - Skype, Twitter, etc (all still RXFADEZ)

Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset - I could probably complete a large percentage of the tech aspect as I am aware what I'm doing after doing part of it for last year's marathon. I'd say I also did the majority of the scheduling for last year's marathon too so I'm up for that. If necessary I can also throw together some layouts; I'd rather not be on that duty, but could assist people if required (don't need another one of them long nights fixing my layouts hey Keiz). I'd also probably do a large percentage of the European hosting, as I did last year, as long as I'm still available come marathon date.

Why you want to be part of the committee - It's safe to say I took my fair share of work in last year's marathon, but nothing was more satisfying than seeing it go well. One thing this does mean I bring is excellent hindsight. As I was working behind the scenes with a great committee for the last marathon, I know exactly where we went wrong and exactly where we went right and can bring this knowledge into this marathon's planning.

Sidenote: For those submitting future applications, try to make the titles for the separate segments bold, so they can be distinguished and easy to read.

Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset -Organising chat, feedback/PR, layouts, helping/preparing runners.

Why you want to be part of the committee - Whilst last year was a huge success, there were a number of issues raised that I would love to be around to help improve upon for this years marathon. I feel one of the biggest issues last time around was the lack of any organisation of the chat moderation which put some people off, I think putting together a group of mods and setting some ground rules to sanitize the chat a bit could be useful.
The other thing I want to be able to see done well is to make sure the runners are properly ready for their runs, last time around some of the runners showed up at the last minute and were thrown on stream unprepared often with poor stream lag/ audio setup, discord will make this easier but there definitely needs to be some amount of organisation dedicated to ensuring runners are ready and prepared before they begin their runs. I did write a longer list of insights I made on how the previous marathon went and some of that would be useful in organising this one.
On top of all that I'd just love to be a part of the committee as a way to get even closer to the community and get to chat with all you like minded people even more and have a great time doing so. KevinTurtle

Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset - Scheduling, preparaing or relaxing runners/commentating
Why you want to be part of the committee - Over the past year, I have not had many huge blocks of time to devote to Pokémon speedruns, so I am unsure whether I'll be doing any runs in the marathon. However, I have a lot of smaller pockets of time before the marathon, and my schedule will be totally freed up around June, so I would love to to help out with the marathon in whatever capacity is required. I loved the marathon last year, and I would love to make it even better this year by erasing all memes on sight!
I speedrun Pokémon Pearl, White 2 and X!

I'm interested in who's deciding who gets to be part of the committee. Is there an already formed committee committee?

Scheduling, PR, and I could do layouts but there would be better people than me suited to that job.
Why you want to be part of the committee
I missed my opportunity to help out with the last marathon (barring chat moderation, which is something that needs adressing earlier on this time around~), something that I regret greatly. I'm hoping to rectify that with some useful contributions this time around.
Also it all looks damn fun.

Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset - Being host for some of the time, and organizing an effective schedule that suits everyones needs.
Why you want to be part of the committee - I had a blast helping to host the first PSR marathon, and i would love to help again. I also believe that as someone who mostly watched pokemon speedruns, I can provide insight as to what a new viewer might want to watch.

Why you want to be part of the committee - Since I'm not in a position to contribute to the marathon by performing / submitting a run this time round, I'd like to be able to help out behind the scenes in some way. If not I'll just watch as usual :D

Why you want to be part of the committee - I loved how last year's marathon went out and I feel really grateful for all the help the community keeps putting out for me when I need to know anything about the runs, so this time I want to give something back. I can help a lot on the tech side of things (programming, setting up servers to make the streaming process easier) if you are shorthanded; I have some ideas about drawing attention to the marathon (maybe it's possible to contact someone from Twitch's PR and ask them to showcase the marathon on the weekly/monthly newsletter for example) and I would love to help with whatever's left of PR stuff to be done.

The final committee has been established and the members are as follows:
  • Dabomstew
  • Keizaron
  • werster
  • LBlueEagle
  • GarfieldTheLightning
  • JTMagicMan
  • eddaket
  • RXFADEZ
  • WasabiKnight
  • Sinstar
  • MKDasher
  • Amoeba
Again, thanks for all your applications. If you didn't make it on, then our apologies, but there were too many candidates this year to simply let everyone on like last year. We believe this group should be able to put together a great marathon this year.

Applications for other roles such as hosting shifts will be opening up in the not too distant future, so keep your eyes open if you still want to get involved with the marathon in a way other than doing a run at the marathon. If you do want to run games, then check out the Game Submissions Thread!
