How many of those who signed up will actually show up???
This is a god damn tough question. After all the talk about establishing the framework for the game fest this one scares the hell out of me.
Well, I've sent a second mail already which invited people who already registered to provide feedback on threads related to establishing the rules.. and just how many actually responded? Barely any. We have responses from already active members + maybe one or two.
When we start scheduling matches it will be absolutely essential for everyone to show up to confirm that they are ok with the schedules and that they will come at those times (to basically set an appointment). What if not everyone shows up for this? Heck, what if barely half shows up or even less?
Suffice it to say that if this happens this game festival will be dead before it started. And after a few mailings that left barely responded by the registered players I am not feeling very assured. Wtf are you waiting people? If you signed up to a thread which says that you sign up only if you are serious about participating then yes we expect you to show up when we ask you to or resign in a way that we can see so that we know where we stand!
