Hey if you cruised over here from facebook, chime in!
Not to get off the art topic but if you ever felt like "I'd like to get more involved in PDF but don't feel welcome to" that might be because FB is NOT where most of the work gets done. It gets done here on the PONY and Dept. emails, and PC calls and the PC agenda thread before the calls.
Sometimes FB threads get ugly and many hard working volunteers run away from that ugly not because they are aloof, or scared, but because ugly sucks. If you post ugly stuff on the PONY and people continue to ignore you, maybe the problem isn't everybody else.
For a long time I was a confused noob with a million bazillion questions. Years, arts grants, WWWs, theme camps, and a GÜD later, I've found there are no Elder Scrolls or zealous guardians hoarding and limiting access to info. There are just more questions and more work than there are hands to do the work. Grumping and bullshitting we got covered, work we need more help with.
