You will be up early and to bed late, sometimes you may not sleep or eat for long periods of time. But the rewards of seeing all those con goers having a great time is what we are all about. so please PM me the following information and I will add your information to the roster. Questions Welcome.

Kylite is correct.  The job is grueling, it can drain you of all physical and mental capabilities, but it's worth it to see the smile on people's faces when an even goes really well or we're able to help someone find that lost item they've been looking for.  Since we were just shy of 4500 attendees, I'd like to see a minimum of 40 people on the squad this year.  If you have any questions feel free to contact kylite or myself.

Should I sign up? Or do I have other things to be doing?

I am giving serious thought to this. I talked with a few yojimbo, mostly while I was a little sloshed. They seemed like they liked what they did, but that they missed out on a lot of things because they were spread too thin. Ill give it more thought as we get closer to the next con.

Do you get to keep the nifty red jacket? I know I wouldn't mind being a yojimbo, you guys were so helpful this year! ^^ I got both of my lost items back super fast, when I had given them up for lost.

Oh, I think I might be too young, though...
Title: Re: Yojimbo (Security) 2009 Signup
Post by: kylite on September 03, 2008, 08:13:02 pm
nope, the red nifty jackets are under the ownership of the convention.
You are always welcome to make your own tho :) It is called a Haori

as to the age. at the time I believe it is 16+. It MAY go back up to 18+ but we will have to see

this year was great for me, i made a lot of friends on the yojimbo staff and had a blast with all of them. cant wait to get started. hopefuly the roaming pack of people lead by the horse head will keep away though... that was just creepy >.>

also if i were to cosplay as Commander william T. Riker with the red top would i still have to wear the haori?

This year was my first on staff and I was a yojimbo.  It was really fun, you got to run around with a radio and help people find stuff and feed the starving staff members and sometimes you got to get into events that would normally be full or cost money because you were helping run stuff.  Like I've never bothered with the cosplay contest before because the line's always ridiculously long, but I had a shift manning the doors and seating people at the end of it and I got to see some of the skits and find out that it was actually pretty cool. :D Dooo it.

Yojimbo 1 is pretty much ops director appointed.

As for me I am not sure yet if I am in, I want to give it some thought (this year killed me.. o.o) before I say yes or no either way.

Vallie appointed me to it Monday night, so I think Jaz is moving elsewhere in the hierarchy.

nothing is set in stone yet guys. Remember all positions will be decided at the elections in octoboer.

The director of OPS will be the one setting these positions up

Vallie appointed me to it Monday night, so I think Jaz is moving elsewhere in the hierarchy.

Jaz has indicated that she doesn't want to be volunteer coordinator again in 09 as she is getting married during this year and wants to do something with a little bit less responsibility.  I asked Tanis if he's interested as I recognized he did a really good job of recruiting this year, and he said yes.  Of course, he still has to go through the whole process of signing up and confirming the position with whomever wins ops director, so it's not official, but Tanis has interest and I will recommend him.

And because I'm already getting PM's on the issue, I know I can't officially appoint anyone to anything.  Please calm down, there was a misunderstanding.

/end of off topic discussion that really has nothing to do with Yoji signup.

If you sign up for Yojimbo we will be putting you on the schedule for hours during the con.
We would love to have you but not if it means your having to be pulled to your other positions.

I'll have to keep this noted.
I'll be 16 by the time of the con but things might get in the way and problems might occur.
I am interested though no matter how tough the job may be.

You should give it a lot of thought.
It is a lot of really hard work. But you are certainly welcome if they leave it at 16+. ^---^
It has it's fun things as well....lol but don't forget a lot of work as well.


For anyone that's going to be 16+, or under 18, think about it a lot.
Questions? Just ask anyone that was Yojimbo before would gladly help you with anything you might need answer.

But I do have a more powerful position already: the Volunteer Manager. Wanna be my assistant?)

I belive I still have volunteer manager position until the fall election, and while the past year's manager aka me, can recomend people for it, its ultimatly the directors decision

more powerful position already: the Volunteer Manager

What are you smoking that you think volunteer manager is a powerful position, as I  have always said at times its a thankless thankless job (by the masses but the few who do thank you makes the job worthwile), full of stess LIKE EVERY STAFF POSITION AT TIMES!,  some of my closest friends are yojimbo, Most respect to them
In no way is volunteer manager any more powerful then a Yojimbo!
Bottom line we are all con support, during con info desk (which is under volunteer manager position) works with the yojimbo at con as issues arise we need them at times and at others they need us.  So many volunteers eventualy turn into yojimbo down the line as well

Isn't this superjaz's position?
Thank you ;D

Fair enough. Not staff yet. But hopefully soon.
well see, wait till I'm done with my chair before you try sitting in it

Jaz has indicated that she doesn't want to be volunteer coordinator again in 09 as she is getting married during this year and wants to do something with a little bit less responsibility
yup as most you know I am getting hitched to kendo boyfriend aka chris and I also have a job where i work saterdays, so making it to meetings and volunteer events would be very difficult as it has been the last month before con. I could not have made it with out Vallie as my second, she rocks so hard.
 Jaz (back to the much needed yojimbo sign up I just had to put in my 3 cents)

I'm sorry. But Volunteer Manager does outrank yojimbo by one rank, and is equal to Yojimbo One.

I'm sorry.

The confusion has been cleared up and apologized for.  I think that making any changed to this thread would jsut be confusing.  Discussion like this helps out newbies learn how the con works. 

So, let's consider this finished and get back on topic ;)

If everyone that was Yojimbo this year brings 1 or 2 friends with them to 09 then people will have more time off to do to panels/events and whatnot oh yeah and sleep! So please start hounding your friends/relatives/coworkers/strangers and try to get them in as yojimbos.

First we wait until elections are over so we know who will be running things next year.  I am sure the new Ops Director will jump on planning things and appointing managers ... as soon as we have one ;)

Keep an eye on the elections section for more info.  We will start having threads for each position at some point so you can ask questions of our lovely candidates.

Hmm... I want to be either Yojimbo or regualr staff this year... there is only a few problems.
First and foremost; my planned cosplay for that con is Yuna in her wedding dress. If you've seen that scene in FFX, you know what I mean. BIG.
Second, I am only sixteen year old, so can't be out after curfew.
Third, I want to enter Yuna in the Cosplay Contest; need to be there for that.
Fourth, I also really, really, really want to attend the Random Panel and Anime Huner's panel *if there is one*
The rest are just things I want to do, but can part with easily. Cosplay Chess (If Yuna proves too large, then I won't even enter. XD Garnet had a long train last year; Yuna's is twice that and wider, wings, etc. @.@) and AMV Contest (I always have an AMV submitted... this one if only if one of them makes it in.)

to clarify being a normal staff is the same as being a yojimbo only not.

A normal staffer is on duty all year busting their butts for the con.

The yojimbo are relatively inactive all year other then attending mini events or helping out when or if they can but during the con we basically don't sleep (well we do but not often). its kind of an endurance trial being a yojimbo. But as always there are perks. :)

Either way no position is any greater then any other.

Just a kind explanation, not a rant or yelling at anyone :)

I can easily go through 3 days without sleep even if I'm working and I love helping out that's why I signed up to be Yojimbo ^_^

Hmm... I'll think on it a little more, then. Cheaper hotel room would be sweet... since I am poor. Very poor. XD
I'll probably go to the next meeting with Sugarlat or something and have my answer by then.

sadly yojimbo is staff only.
no $10, no entrance to the squad.

But that does not mean you cannot help out in other places :)

Dark, the $10 is what we pay to register for the con itself, it's not on top of the actual con price. So if you are going to the con, it is cheaper to be on staff..but at the same time you don't really get to experience the con, either ;)

And you just *know* that I'll be there.

Night Shift Rocks.

Of course...if I get my panda suit finished in time....

I plan to sit at the Cosplay Door, wearing the Genma Panda Suit with a big blow-up hammer and a signpost.

Itzel, we love people like you.  *hugs*  She's got a point though.  We may not get to see some of the at-the scenes kinda stuff, but the behind-the-scenes stuff makes it worth it sometimes guys.

pleasure to meet you. Please make sure to PM me with the info at the start of this thread so I can add your information to the roster. After that, we just need to get you to one of the general meetings to sign up and pay your staff registration.

I was kinda wondering how are we supposed to register for the con if we've signed up for Yojimbo?
Title: Re: Yojimbo (Security) 2009 Signup
Post by: Trumby on March 27, 2009, 11:10:38 pm
Usually at a general meeting, you'll fill out a staff form and have your department head (Robert in the case of Ops) sign it, then pay your $10 and you're registered.

Oh XD I'll definetly go to the next meeting then!
When's Yojimbo training?
Title: Re: Yojimbo (Security) 2009 Signup
Post by: Trumby on March 28, 2009, 12:51:14 am
Nothing's been set up yet as far as I know. Though there's always plenty of training sessions either at meetings or just by themselves.
Title: Re: Yojimbo (Security) 2009 Signup
Post by: kylite on March 28, 2009, 02:00:30 am
I haven't gotten all the training material set yet but I run a training at each general meeting if there are sufficient people to attend. if not one on one training is done. either way I will make sure each registered yojimbo receives training

I hope to see alot of you pending people at the next few meetings
