General Discussion / Are you interested in hosting iWPS 2016?
« Last post by inkera on August 12, 2014, 02:05:32 PM »
***This is cross-posted in the SlamMasters Forum***

Peace and Balance_

I'm Inkera Oshun, Event Coordinator for the Individual World Poetry Slam.

This is an official call to host iWPS 2016 in your city!

If there are any interested parties who want to host iWPS 2016, please make your intention known here or via email to myself by Monday, 25 August.  My email address is:

Subject line should be: “ iWPS 2016 Host”

At that point, all interested parties will receive a vetting packet of questions and considerations regarding your potential to host the event. The turn around time for completion of the vetting packet will need to happen fairly quickly, so that the Executive Council can work to secure a host city.

Please understand that this is not a request for “I’ll do it if you need me to” bids. This is a call for cities who WANT to host 2016.  Also, you need not have the bid completed to state interest.  That’s what the vetting packet you’ll receive is for.

Anyone can bid for iWPS.  It need not be a SlamMaster or even a member of PSi.

I would love to work with you to bring iWPS 2016 to your city. I look forward to hearing from you.

is there a place to see scores for Finals stage and how the Finals shaped up from the inception of NPS to now?

As far as historical data, they live on as legend in our hearts and minds.

As for the most recent NPS Finals, they can be found here - thank you, Tova Charles:

General Discussion / Registration Issue When Registering New Slam
« Last post by HoustonRH7 on July 29, 2014, 10:00:22 AM »
So, I've been trying to register a new slam through the page, and every time I do I get an error message of some kind of error page. Usually it's the "ERROR 500 - INTERNAL SERVER ERROR" page, though occasionally it will just pop up with a single line of text about an invalid time-out or something like that. I've tried this about 4 times so far, and I'm a bit worried to keep trying in case the site decides to charge my card every time I submit the form.

Is there a way to check and see if the page has charged my card already, and the info went through? I'm assuming it didn't, since I didn't get a confirmation e-mail, but again, I'd rather not suddenly see 4 charges for registration on my card... is there a way I could do this over the phone?

The registration, by the way, was under the name "Fayetteville Word Wars".
