Please don't re-post press releases that we've posted on our site (and therefore already posted in the forums.)

Hi Patrick,

Sorry about that, this is my first year as a member of the PR Staff, and am still learning the right processes for posting on the various forums. I have removed the text for the two press releases above. Feel free to delete the now-empty posts if you like.

Thanks for letting me know!

No big deal.

I just don't want to have press releases in this forum when they've already been posted in the news forum...or else every con will be doing that and it'll be entirely redundant.

Did you check out the podcast? Zenkaikon got a plug!

Zenkaikon Panel Applications Now Open!

We are pleased to announce that Zenkaikon is now accepting panel applications for 2009.

Please note that our scheduling is limited, so panels will be chosen on a variety of criteria. If your panel is not selected, please do not take it personally; it is just an issue of time management.

Please send the following information to zenkaikonpanels@gmail.com to apply for a panel. Please include information for each of the items below or your panel will not be considered.

- Your Name

- Name of Your Panel

- How many people will be on the panel? (Please include any other names, if applicable)

- What time(s) of day suit your panel best?

- A short description of the panel (Please include information on tone. Is it a humorous panel or a serious academic one?)

- Have you run panels before at other conventions? If so, please list some or all of those conventions.

- Will your panel have any special needs? (i.e., Do you require a projector, a microphone, a DVD player?)

If we receive more panel applications than we have time, we will select one or two panels to be placed in reserve in case of sudden cancellations.

If you have any questions regarding panels, please direct them to zenkaikonpanels@gmail.com.
