Basic Guidelines

If you'd like to host a Season, choose a week during which you'll have the time and energy to be a good host.
Mark your Season week on your personal calendar so you can prepare as the week nears.
Sign up for only two weeks per year unless unclaimed weeks remain unclaimed, then go ahead and volunteer for another.
If things change and you're unable host, please contact me (a private message is best) ASAP so a substitute can be found.
The only week with a theme in advance is the last full Season before Christmas. (The Holiday Songs week was like a holiday party, with many warm greetings and cheer, so we'll be continuing the tradition.)

Good ideas for hosts
During your Season, we're in "your house", so you can set things up your way, but there are a few expectations:

Hosts must have posted at least one video for a Seasons challenge---more is much better---the more you've participated, the better you'll be at hosting a great Season.
Please comment in your Season thread on the entries or post a response video giving feedback to all the participants. Or, even better, do both.

Important details

Each Season should begin no sooner than late Saturday evening mainland USA time (try to be sure it's after whatever you consider dinner time). At that time, the host posts the theme, the rules, and the prizes for the week. The host should emphasize that no videos should be posted before 12:00 AM Sunday mainland USA time.
Each Season ends eight days later on Sunday at 11:59:59 PM Hawaii time (a quirky tradition begun by chrimess which reminds us each week of the origin of all this ukulele music). So consecutive Seasons overlap on Sunday, with one Season closing and one Season opening. (Seasonistas who live outside mainland USA/Canada time zones have the same length of time to participate, but their start and end times are calculated in their own time zones.)

Hosts

Choose theme and set parameters. (Bonus songs allowed? Multi-tracking? etc.)
Post theme Saturday night (USA mainland time); don't allow videos posted until Sunday.
Season ends at 11:59:59 PM Hawaii time the next Sunday.
Select winners (using a method of your choice) and announce them soon after then end of your Season.
Offer prizes for the winners. Prizes need not be expensive. (Certificates are fine; joke prizes are fine; but ukuleles are the best prizes ;) )
It's great if the host posts a video during the week, whether it's an intro video, a response video, a performance, or one (or more) of each.


Participants

The more the merrier---encourage new people to join us.
Follow the host's specifications for that week. (Read the host's challenge thread carefully and/or watch the challenge video.)
Comment on others' videos, and not just your top favorites! Everyone likes encouragement. Your comment might help someone enormously. Each comment contributes the positive vibe of the Seasons, and strengthens the aloha spirit of the challenges. (In the past, some people posted lists of the entries, with comments for each one. Now, more participants comment on YouTube. Participants like to be noticed, and posting in the thread---without duplicating the video or lots of text---is welcome.)

A quote from former Seasons volunteer coordinator and ukulele hero, ukuloonie:

I think that we have a good group here who participate each week. I was thinking if you don’t see somebody for a while on the Seasons, it might make somebody’s day if they were just contacted to see how they were doing, not to find out why that they are not participating, just to say hello, thinking of you and hope all is well.

First, HUGE props to Drew (aka Ukuloonie) for his amazing hard work.

Then, HUGE props to Ralf (aka The Only Uke That Matters) for taking up the reins!

Finally, HUGE props to all Seasonista hosts, past and future. For you Seasonistas who haven't hosted yet, I hope you'll consider it; it is really amazing!

Anyway, I can do week 92, and would be happy to be a reservist, as well.

If anyone hosting one of those weeks can help austin1 out---she's in grad school, so making time to host a Season is quite a challenge---you can "trade" for any open week that works for you. Just let me know in the thread or via private message.

I'll make a birthday exception for advanced planning. Early happy birthday, Myrna! (And big props for Canada week---great idea!!)

Generally, upcoming scheduling is limited to the available weeks in post #1. (That way, once all those Seasons are assigned, I can focus on weekly volunteer coordinator duties.) The Seasons 102-125 will be available for sign-up around Season 94 (eight or so weeks ahead of time).

This has nothing to do with anything, but last night I had a dream the Seasonistas were extras in a Johnny Depp film starring Johnny Depp with a cat on his head. We were all on set enjoying the food table, which for whatever reason only had Oreos on it. I ate some Oreos and then brushed my teeth because that's what I always do. Then Johnny Depp came in and announced that they had too many extras so they were going to kill the ones they didn't need, and a crazy dentist would intiate the process by selecting victims based on their dental hygiene. And the crazy dentist turned out to be Ralf? I was good because I brushed my teeth after the Oreos, but the lot of you were in big trouble. And then I woke up.

Moral of the story: Johnny Depp is sort of a douche. And also looks ridiculous with a cat on his head.

This has nothing to do with anything, but last night I had a dream the Seasonistas were extras in a Johnny Depp film starring Johnny Depp with a cat on his head.

Hi Seasonistas!

I've opened up the next cycle of Seasons (102 through 125) on the sign up sheet. Please post your choice of available Seasons to host in this thread. I'll do my best to keep the list updated, but please check this thread as well as the list to double check that your chosen Season is available.

As you're making your choice, remember that hosting a Season is great fun, but that it takes considerable time and energy to maintain the playlist(s), comment on videos, and judge. Host a week during which you'll be able to spend an hour or two each day enjoying and participating in your Season.

(I let Seasonistas on the reserve host list sign up over the past week to thank them for volunteering, so a few weeks are already assigned.)

We have only the 119th and 121st Seasons available, both pootsie and lelouden have volunteered to host the 121st. Would the 119th work for either of you? I'll hold both weeks til we're sure what works.

One million thanks to each Seasonista who has signed up to host a future Season. One billion thanks to everyone (participants, hosts, and their patient, ukulele-loving spouses and roommates) that has helped keep this amazing project going week after week.

Would everyone whose signed up to host be sure to check your UU private message box regularly, and make sure your mailbox has space as your Season nears? I'll contact each of you via private message a week or so before your Season to double check that you're ready to go. If anyone else would like to be a reserve host (possibly ready to host in case someone must cancel) let me know.

Viva las Seasonistas.

June 1st looks like the best day to start scheduling Seasons 125 through 150 (!), so check this thread on June 1st for available Seasons. If anyone would like to be a reserve host, let me know anytime.

Hi all,

Post #1 of this thread has the list of upcoming Seasons. Available Seasons are marked with "?". If you’d like to host an upcoming Season—remember that doing so requires a significant commitment of time and energy—just reply to this thread, letting me know which Season works for you. If you’ve hosted a Season recently, that’s within the last six months or so, please give those Seasonistas that haven’t had a chance to host recently a day or two to find Seasons that will work for them before you sign up to host your next Season.

Remember to choose a week during which you will have lots of free time—hosting a Season is wildly fun, but managing the playlist(s), commenting on videos, judging entries and announcing winners requires a great deal of time and energy. Be sure you’ll have plenty of both during the week of your Season and also during the following week.

Don’t forget that Post #5 of this thread has some basic guidelines to consider along with a list of past Seasons' themes.

Looking forward to twenty-five or so more weeks of ukulele fun with y’all.

Your Volunteer Seasons Coordinator Jr.,
Ralf

Please sign me up for the next available. I thought I had been substituted for Mythinformed's upcoming week, but now I do not see his name anymore.

Sorry for any confusion---now you're the host of the 128th Season, starting July 27th. Gracias.

Glad to hear you're ready for another go-round. We're all booked through December. But if anything opens up, I'll let you know.

I will start taking more host reservations (for 25 or so more Seasons) in mid-November. Everyone that's exited to host should start thinking about their schedules in early 2015.

Ralf ... it's time, maybe? As of today, there are only two more weeks currently accounted for.

(As the host of the final Season on this current roster, I can't help noticing.) If you need help, of course let us know! And thanks so much for being our quiet rock behind the scenes, and all that you do to ensure the Seasons continue to run smoothly, week after week. Amazing, really. I'm excited for my opportunity to host next week! (I'm sure I'd love to keep Season 150 going forever, but my fellow Seasonistas might get a bit tired of my theme after, oh, I don't ... by Friday. :))

Hi all, Here at the Seasons Sign-up thread, I'm ready to welcome another round of awesome volunteers. Please check available weeks along with tips and guidelines (in Post #1 of this thread), then check recent posts in this thread to see which Seasons may have been claimed, I'll do my best to honor requests in the order they arrive. Confusion may arise, but we'll get through it together.

Hosting a Season is a rewarding experience. Looking forward to a mix of new and experienced Seasons hosts to keep us strumming into the summer.

Yay, Ralf's back! I'm about to do my first hosting next week, so not sure what to do about this ... I would like to wait till I've done one to get a sense of what's reasonable. I know I will not want to host once the weather's warm ... too much being tied to a computer indoors ... but I'm also pretty sure I won't want to wait all the way till next winter to do it again!

First of all, add me to the reserve list.

Secondly, here's what I'd like to do if it's okay: I'd like to grab 159, the first week in March. It's hopefully far enough away to not kill me (two months after my upcoming Season), early enough to hopefully still be winter (much past that, there's bound to be warm days that I will want to take maximum outdoor advantage of).

If that's too soon to be feasible, I should know it within the next two weeks, while hopefully this signup period is still active, and someone else will be eager to grab that week.

Does that work, do you think, Ralf? If not, no worries ... feel free to tell me I'm crazy and/or overrule.

I would like to signup to EmCee In April 2015 Season 163 for preference. 164, 165 or 166 would be fine as well. I would happy to be on the reserve list, if that is what you mean by standby or emergency EmCees. I am not much available from the end of April until after Halloween. I guess somebody will contact me to select a topic. I know what I want to do.

Yeah, what Lynda said. You just make sure you have it in your calendar so you remember when you are hosting ... and then some time on Saturday, you start a thread entitled "Season 163 - Name of Your Fabulous Theme", let folks know your theme and rules in your opening post ... and then they all just show up! It's amazing really.

But yeah, there are no reminders and no oversight. If you're new, it's best to observe a number of Seasons first so you get how they work ... or just go read a few recent ones.

We do try not to duplicate past themes (which is getting harder and harder ... both to do, and just to even know what's already been done). Post #5 in this thread (http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?82618-Sign-up-for-future-Seasons-II&p=1311474#post1311474) lists all the past themes, but I don't always know what some of those titles mean - and, at 150 Seasons, that list is getting too long to even read. So we just do the best we can.

Ralf, this is ukuleledaveey's idea for Ukey Dave, who passed away on Dec. 20.

How about making Season 152 be an unhosted tribute to him?
Do any song he played for any Season, or any song he made you want to learn. If you merely launch it and close it, it can be a rollicking, happy wake for Dave, with lots of conversation—stories and toasts—and an open mic. I think he'd really like that.
Some clever person might try copying his funny video-entry graphic.

Hey Ralf,

Since moving to Myanmar, I've been unable to host a week even though I have very much wanted to. It's the internet here. It's gotten better, but if I get 1 MBps DL speeds, I'm happy with that. Makes it tough (and expensive, as they charge for connectivity per MB).

From April 12th to May 20th, I'm going to be Chiang Mai, Thailand's second largest city. The first week will be vacation, and then doing some professional development training the next four. I expect blazing fast internet (as compared to here anyways).

So, any weeks still open during that time? I don't recall an Asian-hosted week in a long time.

Go ahead and jump on it Kid.
I was going to have to scramble a little to make the time anyway.
Peace.

Thanks, Alan and Jon, for volunteering. That'll be your Season, Jon. Looking forward to another challenge from the Seasonist of the Ukulele.

Hey Ralf -
I'd like to host again. I've got a crackerjack theme (no it's not "crackerjacks") - but it's got to be for the week of Aug 16-23 (as it correlates with a certain historical event that happened at that time of year). I'd like to reserve that Season if possible.

-thx

Ooh! What can that historical event be? Well, Aug 16 1953 welcomed Kathy Lee Gifford into the world. Aug 17 1953 saw the first meeting of Narcotics Anonymous. Aug 18 1920 gave us Shelley Winters' first appearance. The first All-American Soap Box Derby took place on August 19 1934. Aug 20 1775 sees the the Spanish founding Tucson, AZ. Nothing ukulele-related happened on Aug 21, ever. But on Aug 22 565, St Columba makes the first-ever recorded sighting of the Loch Ness Monster!

Now, if that crackerjack theme of UkeFootes's not amongst one of those historical events, then I'll be very surprised.

Hi all,

It's that time again---the Sign-Up sheet in post #1 of this thread (http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?82618-Sign-up-for-future-Seasons-II) has been updated to include many more Seasons---nearly all of which need amazing, creative hosts to keep the Seasons rolling forward.

Basic guidelines for hosts are also in post #1; previous Seasons' themes are in post #5 of this thread.

Check your calendar for a week during which you'll have time to enjoy all your fellow Seasonistas' work, then let me know which Season you'd like to host. I'll do my best to assign hosts to Seasons in the order I receive your requests.

Well its public. Don't know about it being a holiday but we could vote for that here in the seasons and make it one :D

Na! I don't think it would make a difference. All we do is sit around and Uke anyway!

Howsabout Labour Day Week 186 for olde Decaturcomp?
In the interest of a day off for labor day, I may really relax the host's responsibilities.
Is this a potential hint?
Who knows?

I'm sure it will be a labor of love, Alan. The 186th Season is yours, my friend. Thanks for volunteering!

Don't forget, Seasonistas, if you'd like to host a Season, we need volunteer hosts for many upcoming Seasons.

Check which Seasons/weeks are available in post #1 of this thread (http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?82618-Sign-up-for-future-Seasons-II), and let me know in the thread or with a private message which Season you'd like to host.

Hosting guidelines are also in post #1; previous themes are in post #5. Feel free to contact me (or any previous Seasons host) if you have any questions.

Thanks for volunteering, Geoff! I'll leave 184 listed as TBA for a couple more weeks in case anyone else is interested.

Remember, Seasonistas, that without volunteer hosts, there would be no Seasons of the Ukulele.

Please check out the list of Seasons needing hosts (marked TBA in post #1 of this thread), and please volunteer to host an upcoming Season.

Let me know which Season will work for you either in this thread or via private message.

Thank you once again to everyone who's signed up to host an upcoming Season---it's truly the hosts that make the Seasons go round. Woohoo, Seasons hosts!!!

If you'd like to volunteer to host a Season, there are still many Seasons available.

I've never hosted before, but I have an idea for a Season that I'm tinkering with and work is already slowing down for the winter...

I haven't been keeping track of what Seasons are already spoken for, but I'm guessing someone has been. I will happily take the next available Season.
