A gopher is a volunteer who will help us out during the convention by lending a hand or performing the different tasks assigned to them. Other than that a gopher must always be considerate and friendly to our visitors while being able to answer their questions at all times.
We are sorry to inform you that there is no guarantee for that. The first step after you registered as a gopher is filling in the gopher form that will be provided to you by our gopher manager. By assessing the submitted form it we will decide if you are qualify to be a gopher or not. Because there is a limit on the amount of gophers we can use on the convention we are incapable of accepting all applications. You are not guaranteed the ‘job’ by simply registering so please do not get angry at us when you are not accepted and you do not receive a refund after the convention.
After you have registered yourself as a gopher you will receive an e-mail from our gopher manager in which you will find an appendix that contains the gopher form. We expect you to completely and truthfully fill in the form before returning it to the gopher manager. By assessing all the handed in forms received, the gopher manager will then determine who will be accepted as a gopher and who will not. After these decisions have been made you will receive an e-mail from the manager that states if you are either approved or not. If you haven’t handed in your gopher form on time your application won’t be processed and will be rejected by default.
The minimum age to apply for helping out as a gopher is 16 years old. This is required from us by our insurance and is not open to debate. Everybody who applies as a gopher will be treated as an equal regardless of his or her age.
Yes, you will have to register and pay beforehand. This is to prevent gophers from gaining access to our convention without payment and then neglecting to do their tasks and jobs.
Breaking the rules as stated in the gopher manual or any other misconduct means we have the right to reject the refund you would normally receive after the convention is over. Don’t worry though, this rarely happens. What is most important to us is that you enjoy your time as a gopher and give it the best you can.
There will be one gopher meeting which will take place on Friday morning before the first shifts of Abunai! starts. The exact time and place will be provided to you at least a week in advance.
It’s okay if you can’t make to the gopher meeting, but we ask you to read the gopher manual thoroughly. It has all the important information that you are required to know as a gopher. If you have any questions, you can always mail the gopher management: email@example.com
Basically, gophers have the same choices as visitors have. You can find them on the accommodations page.
Maybe you can find the answer on the general gopher info page, or the FAQ on the forums. If not please send us your questions using our contact form, or ask around in the appropriate forum. You are sure to get an answer as soon as possible! We always try to answer our mails within the next five working days.
