Hi Party People!

IT'S VID PARTY TIME.

We are considering some changes in response to feedback we have received over these past few years. If you are attending Wiscon Vid Party this year or did so last year, please fill out our brief poll below about the length of programming, the timing of intermissions, and other programming related questions. PLEASE SHARE THIS POST WITH FOLKS WHO MAY BE ATTENDING.

The poll will be open until Monday, April 1st at 12noon CST. At that time, we will be able to better assess how programming may be adapted to accommodate a shorter program.

Here are some potential outcomes of shortening the show: 1) shorter tighter playlists; 2) more collaborative playlists and fewer single-veejay playlists; 3) a single sing-along; 4) a bonus “after-party” of danceable vids or vids from past programming, tbd, if there is a dramatic split between “we want a 2 hours show” and “we want 4 ½ hour show;” 5) other options you are welcome to suggest in the poll.

Once we have results of the poll, we will let everyone know on Monday, April 1st, with playlist sign-ups opening the following day on Tuesday, April 2nd, at 12pm noon CST.

Further updates on Premieres (deadline Monday, May 12th) and admin will be posted tonight/early tomorrow morning.

Thank you for your feedback!

Hello Vid Fans!

In past years, Sing Along has been a playlist arranged by the Vid Party organizers. As you know, singing along to particular vids has become an expected and cherished tradition. And while we are still planning to mix things up a bit with new-to-Sing-Along vids, we don't want to miss out on your faves!

Vote for your favorite Vid Party Sing Along Classics! Suggest vids new to Sing Along!

Additionally, some folks have expressed an interest in a Sing Along playlist that occurs earlier in the evening, because: 1. early panels the next day, and 2. adulting often includes bedtimes. At the same time, some folks have requested multiple Sing Alongs!

Because Sing Along is so beloved, we wanted you to have the option to help shape this year's show. If all of these choices seem daunting or you'd rather be completely surprised, don't worry: we got this.

... now go vote!

P.S. subtitle volunteers needed!
