I'm looking for volunteers to help with this year's Deskthority Awards, running somewhere between the end of November and the beginning of December. Doing the whole thing is a lot of work, but if I get some help all tasks should be very manageable. I'll be there to assist and help of course, and matt3o will also be there with the idea that next year the club master will be responsible for the Awards.
There are the following tasks:
Finding sponsors, communicating with sponsors/prize winners and make sure the prizes are shipped.
Make a graphical style and create the banners and other graphics for this year's edition. Any artists here?
Round 1: Handle one or more categories by starting round 1 topic and listing the nominees in the OP.
Round 2: Handle one or more categories by starting round 2 topics based on the nominees from round 1.
Round 3: Handle one or more categories by writing texts about the nominees and starting round 3 topics.
Winners: Announce the winners from one or more categories.
Wignuts: Collect addresses and ship the Wingnuts, ideally nicely presented.
Management of all of the above: For the really ambitious. I'll do it if no one wants that job.
You can pick one small task or multiple tasks, whatever suits you and your spare time.
If you are interested please send me a PM!
