:: : Does that mean there'll be teams of 7?


I was wondering the same thing, seems pretty big for a jam

It all depends on the number of people signed up in each category. It could be that there are very few more in select categories. For instance, Wildcards are much fewer now that Musicians have their own category. Of course, that still brings it up to a potential of 6, but even then I don't expect it.

After that, you've got to factor in flakers, and in the end you probably have an even 4 or 5 per team. It's a decent number for sure, but it's too terribly high.

I'm not worried.


I voice act because I'm insecure about my weight.

Yeah, sorry for the delay guys. I hit the button right at midnight, but the BBS kept giving me an error regarding the html. So I just put that fat list on my newspost and got it through.

Here is the link to the team pickin' thread by the way.

Good luck to everyone in the jam!
Here's a tip for everyone that I intend to use:

I am taking psychology 101 (required for my programming major) and this week's topic was on sleep and dreams (what luck!)
If you can take 10-to-15-minute naps over the 72-hour competition, you can get more work done and keep the same level of alertness and awareness throughout the competition that you would not have if you attempted to stay awake the entire time. There's various psychological reasons, etc, but it works.

There's my tip of the day. Good luck, and have fun!
