I’m getting very close to being to reopen the applications system for our Naked Experiences. These will include Experiments and Games (as before) but some new ideas too. The application form has been largely redesigned and (hopefully) improved but by far the largest change is that applications are only available to Community Supporters. This should have two important effects. Firstly, it will remove spam applications, which made up 90+% of all applications, saving a lot of wasted admin work for me. Secondly, it will weed out most of the time-wasters who fill in an application but have no intention of actually take part. Also, it may encourage more people to become supporters.
I realise this is a bit of a risk, and I may well change the policy in future, but it has the potential to solve so many problems in one more, it’s got to be worth a try.
