Well, seeing that's 900 years from now, you have plenty of time. Lol Joking aside....

No offense dude, but if you are trying to be added on (volunteer work, or a job) to somewhere, you might want to put a little more effort into spelling and grammar. (Not to mention, stating you only really want to apply just because of the badges...)

You may be a bit late to apply for staff- you need to put in an application and they will contact you if they have room. Volunteers need to have a badge already, as Zeth already told you on the volunteer thread. Also, in the past as staff you get your badge + 1 friend badge- the other 2 are for family only. I do not think this has changed. If it hasnt you would only be able to provide 1 badge for a friend, and only if comp'd badge applications are still open, they may or may not be.

Basically, be patient and understand they may not be able to take you this year, but you may be able to get in for next years convention. Hopefully this answered all your questions, I had a bit of trouble understanding what you were trying to ask.

Yes, it is a bit too late. The last staff picks are gonna be chosen by Monday. Tips for next year, try to do it with time. Because applying is more than an application, it takes time.

I was a bit confused if you wanted to volunteer or be staff. Some people dont know the difference.

My advice wasn't really meant for the now...but just stuff in life. I Don't care bout your reasons and if you get it or not. I was just passing helpful advice. You'll be taken a lot more seriously that way. Take it for what you will. Listen or ignore...doesn't really matter to me.

Then why did you comment back XenoBlade. Any who I will do neither since I made a mistake. My grammar and spelling, is well enough and most likely higher than yours. So please keep your comments to yourself because it not needed nor wanted. Thank You

Just gonna make a point here, ravenfinch, and say that Xeno's grammar is better. Also, the proper response to well-meaning advice like his (which I fully agree with, by the way) is: "Thank you."

Please don't be rude, Xeno has a point.
With bad grammar you come across as something you probably are not.
It's helpful advice to avoid misunderstandings.

Speaking as a manager, this is a point that I feel many people can benefit from.

When you communicate by writing, that represents you. How you do things, and the amount of care and intelligence you put into the things you do. That is the recipient's first and only impression of you, be it a forum post, a job application or even just tweeting.

If what you send looks rushed, sloppy and full of mistakes, that's how you're saying you're going to do the job you're applying for. Of course, stating an ulterior motive doesn't help your case much either.

If you put some serious effort into it, pay attention to spelling and grammar, remember capitalization and punctuation and double check for typos before you send it, then you're telling people that you're an intelligent and organized hard worker that pays attention to what you're doing.

Show people that you're worth taking a risk on, and they usually will.

I just want to clarify that this isn't necessarily the reason ravenfinch hasn't heard back on his or her application yet. Out Staffing people get a lot of applications to slog through, plus about 20 deadlines are coming due Monday. They have to handle all that while leading their own lives outside the convention. They all volunteer their own time for this duty, which pretty much puts it under the definition of a hobby. Paying the rent and feeding the family always has to come first. Be patient. If there's a job for you, you'll hear back.

Your right well i will apologize to XenoBlade that my grammar should have been correct the first time.Atlas he was still rude in the way he told me if he wanted to tell me something like that to help or whatever he should have told me in a private message..Also Thank You very much Smokey that was very helpful.
