General Discussion / EC Candidates in 2013
« on: January 16, 2013, 03:17:09 PM »
Just a note to remind you all what EC members are currently coming up on their end of term/re-elections

Henry Sampson - President (expires in 2013)
Suzi Q Smith - Vice-President (expires in 2014)
Jesse Parent - Secretary (expires in 2014)
Inkera Oshun - Treasurer (expires in 2013)
Sam Castello - Trustee (expires in 2014)
Karen G - Trustee (expires in 2013)
LoGic - Trustee (expires in 2013)

It is valuable to know who will seek re-election as well as who would be interested in running for the EC this year. Last year had a record number of candidates and it would be wonderful to see that level of interest, again.


General Discussion / PSi Going Dark for NPS 2012
« on: August 06, 2012, 08:11:47 AM »

You should consider the offices, emails and phones of PSi closed until after NPS 2012.
You can of course reach all of us on site at NPS at will, but we are now on the road, in the wind and catching planes.

See you soon! 


General Discussion / Golden State Slam status
« on: March 01, 2012, 12:55:09 PM »
Referring back to this comment in the forum access thread in reference to Golden State Slam's request to access the SlamMaster forum:

Shawn, You're not certified or registered for 2012. You'll need to take care of that online in the PSi store.

Golden State Slam is listed on line 12 of the excel document that Abbey posted listing Certified/Registered venues. Their status is NEW CERTIFICATION:

To de-clutter the forum access thread and give this issue higher visibility, I am creating this thread to track communication on this issue. Scott Woods also communicated that this was forwarded to the Executive Director in this thread:


General Discussion / Boost Tara's Platelets
« on: January 26, 2012, 07:02:48 PM »
This is making the rounds on facebook, but I wanted to put this into the community forum as well.

Tara Hardy is in need of your help. Some amazing people have started a fundraising site that communicates her needs and can help to collect money to help Tara get the necessary health insurance, testing, and treatment she needs. Please take a moment to go there, learn about what is happening, and give if you can.

Thank you

General Discussion / Abbey Evacuated... AGAIN!
« on: June 22, 2011, 04:53:16 PM »
If you haven't been following the news, Minot, ND is in danger of flooding, again, and that means Abbey and her family have been evacuated.

Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers and be patient about NPS and membership related issues.


General Discussion / NPS 2010 Beard Growing Contest
« on: May 11, 2010, 01:04:09 AM »
I want to try something silly at NPS and hold a beard contest. If you are a fan of Cheers, this should be familiar to you. Who'd be interested? You would have to start from scratch this month.

Details to come after discerning interest.


General Discussion / Error in Store
« on: March 03, 2009, 10:31:49 PM »
I received an email notification that my membership was expired.  It actually expires later this month, but I appreciated the heads up.

However, I am unable to purchase a membership renewal.  Firefox Error Console is showing this message:

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Access to restricted URI denied"  code: "1012" nsresult: "0x805303f4 (NS_ERROR_DOM_BAD_URI)"  location: " Line: 194"]

While there is nothing technically explicit that I can find in the bylaws or Web site that prevents non-members of PSi from voting at SlamMasters, I'd still like to have it renewed as soon as I can.



General Discussion / Looking for Christopher Lee
« on: September 17, 2008, 05:29:59 PM »
Saw this on Karen G's livejournal, so I thought I would post here in case anyone in the family might have seen him recently:

There's already been some chatter about this, but Christopher Lee has gone
missing for some days now. Last anyone heard from him, he had gone to Dallas.

Without going too deeply into it, a Missing Persons report has been filed.

If anyone has heard from our boy, or has info / ideas, please respond.
Also please spread the word far and wide to anyone who knows Chris.

The message below is from Chris' mother, Carol.

Thanks y'all,

Mike Henry


"I am Chris's mother, Carol. I'm sure you've heard that he is missing.
This morning I talked to the Missing Persons Detective at the Dallas Police
Department, Det. T.D. Smith, and he asked that we let all of Chris's friends
know that he is missing. The direct line to Det. Smith is 214-671-4245, if
anyone has information.

Chris will be put on the national missing person list

Carol Spaulding"

General Discussion / It's a boy!
« on: September 06, 2008, 07:24:25 PM »
Scott Woods Parent was born at 5:30PM MST.  We were concerned that he wasn't crying, but as soon as we handed him a piece of paper with "Waaah!" written on it, he piped right up.  True to his namesake!

Just kidding.  Jonah Kai Parent is 8lbs 8 oz and 21.5 inches.  We had a home birth and mom and baby are just doing great.

Expect more fatherhood poems.


General Discussion / NPS Solo Slam Press
« on: August 13, 2008, 11:13:42 PM »
Here's a interesting article done by someone attending the solo slams on Wednesday evening.

Nice to see some press about some of the side events.  There's a lovely picture of a very smooth Jive Poetic getting his hand shaken by someone who is either me or his crazy uncle.

Honestly... that's the best picture they had of me.... ;)


General Discussion / Cookie issues in Firefox
« on: February 13, 2008, 03:30:39 PM »
So, after having some issues with Internet Explorer at work, I have switched to using Firefox.  The problem has become that I am used to entering in as my way to find this site.  However, whenever I do I am asked to log in again.

But... when I enter as my URL/URI it works fine and dandy.  Obviously, there's an issue with the scope of the cookie that keeps the handy dandy session information stored.  How hard would it be to a) change the cookie's scope to include all subdomains or b) force a redirect to when accessing ?

Reposting from the MySpace:

To all poets in the greater areas of Gainesville, Ocala, and Orlando, Florida:

We are going to Hot Toddy Cafe in Waycross, Georgia, this Saturday (12/1) for their monthly reading. This is an around-the-room-until-dry style reading. Starts at 8, ends when done (perhaps midnight, perhaps much later). We will leave Gainesville at 4:15 or so. That will give us time to travel, stop along the way, grab a bite to eat before a robust evening of poetry, and settle into the room before the reading starts.

Please let me know if you want to participate. We will carpool and convoy both ways. Those of you who would have to leave from Waycross at a certain time (say, by 11), please let me know and I will help you coordinate carmates according to your schedules, etc.

FYI: Content should lean toward family-friendly, at least for the first part of the evening. We may be able to dip deeper into our repertoire depending on how the late-night crowd develops.

If you are from other areas of north or central Florida (such as Tampa, St. Petersburg, Daytona, Palatka, Port Richey, Lake City, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, etc.) you are welcome to join us too. Please message me for instructions, etc.

ALSO listeners and fans are welcome to come! Please don't feel left out just because you don't have anything of your own to share.

Slam Selection Processes / Salt City Slam - Salt Lake City, UT
« on: September 17, 2007, 04:02:07 PM »
Salt City Slam
4th Saturday of every month
Cup of Joe
353 West 200 South
Salt Lake City, UT

We have a point system for participation in open mics and placing in slams. A poet get a point each time they read at an open mic at either the Cup of Joe open mic or the Cafe Marmalade (361 North 300 West, Salt Lake City) open mic, starting September 1 of every year. At poetry slams, held once a month at Cup of Joe on the fourth week of the month, 8 people will be allowed to participate. 27 points will be awarded for winning a slam, 14 for second, 9 for 3rd, 5 for 4th and 2 points are awarded for those finishing 5-8th.

These points will determine the top contenders for our finals in Feb/March that will vie for our team slots and the opportunity to participate in the National Poetry Slam.  If one of the qualifiers after this selection is completed cannot attend NPS, we will select a replacement based on where individuals finished in finals.

There is currently no established process for WOW or IWPS.


General Discussion / Famecast Videos from NPS
« on: August 28, 2007, 06:10:16 PM »
Has anyone who had themselves recorded at NPS for Famecast been contacted yet?  I am wondering what their timeline is regarding finishing the videos and contacting poets.
