- LANified! 25: Colossal - Rescheduled
BloodyIron on Sat, February 27th, 2016 @ 3:10 am.
LANified! 25: Colossal is being rescheduled to November 25-27 2016
If you prepaid, you should see an email from us sent to the mailbox tied to your account on our website. If you do not see the email, please email us at bloodyiron _/at/ lanified \dot)_ com.
So what is changing?
- dates of event
- dates of when earlybird/late prepay ends
So why did this happen?
Based on how many prepays we have seen in the last few weeks, we do not believe enough people will prepay in time, for the March dates, for us to be able to cover the costs of operations. As such we see the reschedule as absolutely necessary.
So what can I do about this?
Despite us having to reschedule, we have seen a massive growth in interest in this event design. But, we still need your help.
- Tell other people about the event
- Convince people interested to prepay
- DO NOT WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE TO PREPAY. If you're wanting to come, THEN PREPAY, please! You prepaying means others will want to prepay too. We want to fill the house, and everyone waiting till the last minute to prepay works against this goal.
The event otherwise is continuing. To find out further information about the coming event, head to : http://www.lanified.com/events/go/22/22

LANified! Bootcamp Program - Phase 2
In Phase 2 we are expanding the services, and reeling back on others:
- We are halting broadcasting for the time being, this is likely to return later.
- The program now includes DotA 2, there are appropriate channels on our Mumble server now for DotA 2 players, generally this will follow similar methods as the CS:GO stuff
- We are adding another Tournament Administrator "Power-Fusion" to the services, in addition to Ishamael and Xiphos

- LANified! seeking
BloodyIron on Tue, January 19th, 2016 @ 11:17 pm.
LANified! can't operate without staff. Since we're growing, we need more help. Here is the kind of help we're looking for:
We gotta keep people safe, and their stuff safe too. Not much to it, keep the peace, keep the gaming going. No headphones. For those working over-night your job expands into keeping the party pumping, engaging those who are awake, and stuff like that.
With how many people we are going to handle we need help checking them in in a timely fashion. Make sure people fill out the waiver, only grant access to those authorized, straight-forward.
Setup AND teardown:
With how much equipment we deal with, we need help setting it up and tearing it down. Generally all staff help with setup and teardown.
All sorts of things happen at the LAN, even small questions, or fixing computers.
We're looking for people prepared to perform several of these tasks per LAN, being staff isn't just one of these. Also, we're looking for long-term staff who will help with multiple events per year. All of our staff positions are volunteer only, we cannot pay you. However we can provide you valuable experience that you can put on your resume, and exceptional staff sometimes get references. We deal with many interesting things, and we want to do great things in this world. If you want to be a part of great gaming, be sure to email us and tell us what you want to do and why you think you're a good fit. Be sure to tell us any relevant experience too : bloodyiron _)at)_ lanified ->dot>- com
