PSR Marathon 2017 Committee Applications Thread

Post by Dabomstew » Sun Apr 02, 2017 8:36 pm

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. Your roles will be even more important given that the admins are going to be very busy in general over the months to come, so if you aren't up to pulling your weight please refrain from applying.

We are currently looking for people who specialize in at least one of the following:
  • Creation of stream layouts and other visual media
  • PR team (advertising and contacting related parties, handling the marathon announcements on the PSR Twitter)
  • Schedule creation (cuts, contacting runners regarding availability, actually putting together the schedule, adjustments in case of drops)
  • Tech (setting up the streaming environment, controlling it come marathon time, working with runners on any runs with special tech requirements)
For transparency, the committee will be selected by the current admin team on Discord. You must be a member of the PSR Discord to apply.

Applications close on Sunday, April 9th at 23:59 PDT.

If you would like to be part of the PSR Marathon 2017 Committee, please leave a post using the guideline below:

Discord name (including the #bit after) -
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...

Discord name - Dabomstew#5302
Best form of contact outside of Discord - Twitter (@Dabomstew)
Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset - Tech
Why you want to be part of the committee - This year's marathon should hopefully be the best yet and I want to be a part of making it so.

Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset - I did a large amount of tech management for last year's marathon and a the majority of scheduling for the first marathon - so either of them will suit me. I can cover a high percentage or European hosting shifts and can be on-call for tech support at any moment.

Why you want to be part of the committee - I'm going to largely echo what I said in my application last year, but there is almost nothing more rewarding than seeing this marathon go well. People I've known for almost three years and people I don't know whatsoever coming together for a celebration of our community is really enjoyable - and being a part of that special event is amazing. I also bring two marathons of experience with me which I could hopefully use to help it's marathon reach it's potential. Although I often laugh and joke with the community and mess around - the PSR marathon feels like the event each year where I can put in some help to try and give back to the community for the fun and support I've always enjoyed by being a part of it.

Best form of contact outside of Discord - Twitter/twitch, bafflingamoeba

Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset - PR, Schedule creation, minor Tech (hosting, setting up layouts etc)

Why you want to be part of the committee - I helped last year, it was a blast (though not without its difficulties, but that's half the fun) and I want to see it succeed further this year (and the years to come, hopefully).
Pros of having me: Previous experience, familiarity with the community for a number of years, mad twitter skills.
Cons of having me: I haven't been as active in the community recently, "somewhat" argumentative.

Edited to remove a double dash.

Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset - Stream Layouts, Schedule Creation.
Why you want to be part of the committee - I have crap all else to do this summer for one thing, plus I am only slowly getting back into running now after my 'injury' but would love to be involved again on the organisation side of things since once again I probably won't feel comfortable submitting much/anything. I am also able to and interested in hosting this year.

Best form of contact outside of Discord - Twitter @ryuveiyz , Twitter DM, or text
Job duty/duties that best fits your skillset - PR & Schedule Creation
Why you want to be part of the committee - I actually started to really get into Pokemon speedrunning thanks to PSR Marathon 2016! While I may come off as obnoxious and maybe at times abrasive or over the top, I know how to get people's attention be it for their cooperation or to actually get them engaged and focused on the end goal which would be PSR 2017. I can also act professional (believe it or not) and know when it's appropriate to joke around and be serious. I'd love to be able to spread the word about how amazing Pokemon speedruns are and how talented our runners are.

Why you want to be part of the committee - I already helped last year and I think I can help again this year, taking into account what we did and the feedback we received. I haven't been very active lately in the community so PSRM could be a good opportunity to get involved again.
