#MTOS HOSTING SPOTS - SEPTEMBER TO DECEMBER


Hello and welcome to another round of #MTOS Hosting for the months of SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, and DECEMBER - 2013.

By now most of the people who will be applying for the host positions know how to go about it, so we shall keep it short and sweet;

As a host you will be required to;

1. HAVE TO HAVE WATCHED THE COMPLETE TWILIGHT SAGA AND MUST HAVE INTRICATE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT IT.

2. You will be required to disregard us whenever we ask you to do something you don't really want to do because it can be considered mentally disturbing (See point 1). 

3. You will however, be required to decide on a topic to hold the #MTOS Chat which takes place on every Sunday at 20:00 UK Time. 

4. You shall then come up with 10 Questions for the chosen topic and have them out on your blog (or you can use our blog if you don't have one of your own) on the Tuesday before the Sunday of your particular chat

5. Once you have the questions ready and posted on a blog, we along with you will promote the same.

6. On the Sunday that you have chosen to host #MTOS, you will be required to post one question at an interval of every 10 minutes starting at sharp 20:00 UK Time

7. As always, please make sure all the questions have a Question Number and that you tweet the questions and your replies with the hashtag #MTOS

Now, getting down to business, we have had tremendous interest for the hosting duties of #MTOS. To make things a little simpler this is how you can sign-up for being a host from the start of SEPTEMBER till the end of DECEMBER;

The good news is that we are going to start repeating topics and hosts, so if you want to host a topic we might have had before or you have hosted before, GO FOR IT! (Although if you do have a new theme, we would appreciate that)

Below, I have mentioned all the dates that are available for hosting in the months of SEPTEMBER-DECEMBER 2013. Please remember that all dates lie on a Sunday and #MTOS begins at 20:00 UK TIME

All you have to do in order to host is comment below with your preferential date, your theme/topic, and your twitter handle. There are a total of 18 spots that are available.

IMPORTANT: Please read the following points carefully before commenting below;


Please, before commenting, read all the comments to make sure you are not duplicating a date that has already been taken. If you do duplicate, we cannot guarantee you a spot at a later date.

Kindly select only one date. If you are unsure, select a later or earlier date. If you mention two dates in your post, once again we will be unable to guarantee you a spot on either of the dates.

Also, please try and make sure that your theme/topic has not been taken before. If you do select a theme and want to change it later, you may do so. If you are unsure, simply state the Theme as "To Be Decided" for now.

Lastly, please make sure that your comment is showing in the comment box, by refreshing the page.

All this might seem a tad complicated, but we felt it would be the fairest way to go about selecting the hosts.

The way #MTOS is going, I am sure we will continue to have the event for a long time, so please if you do not get a spot this time, you will surely have a better chance in the next round of bookings that we plan to open in August. Also you can always place yourself on standby for cancellations by letting @askimrach know.

  23. Hi, @PaulCinephile here, I've got the 22nd December slot. Just thought I'd say that my chosen topic is to be the seasonally appropriate Disaster Movies.
