Please take our follow-up survey:

While your memories of the event (hopefully all good) are fresh in your
mind, please take a few minutes to give us some very valuable evaluation
and feedback on this year's event.

This year's survey is briefer than those in past years. The section
where each activity is rated for "comfort" has been retired and replaced
with an optional fill-in block for comments on comfort at our
activities, or lack of same.

Please visit this url:


We truly appreciate everyone's attendance, participation, and feedback
on the event as a whole and the individual activities.

The survey should take about five minutes to complete.

Please take the survey only once, but with one exception. If you wish to
add (additional) textual comments in any of the comment spaces, please
re-visit the above URL, skip all of the checkboxes, and enter your new
additional comments, suggestions, etc.

If you attended as a couple or group, please have each person fill out
the survey individually.

If there are any questions or concerns about the survey, please let us

The survey will remain on line through Friday, May 25.

Stand up and be counted:

Thanks to all who have responded to the notices to confirm attendance.
With the structure of our event, it's nearly impossible to get everyone
officially counted, and we want to be sure that everyone who attended is
indeed marked as present.

If you receive one of those "Please confirm your attendance" emails,
please respond so we can keep our records accurate. Just do a quick
reply with "Yes" or "No" and we won't bother you any more with it.

If you missed the event, you don't have to give us a reason, just please
confirm if you were or were not present.

Your cooperation is appreciated.

Call For Photographs:

We are fortunate to have the largest and most complete collection of
photos of any of the major TG events, reflecting all of our past 21

Of course, we wish to continue the tradition for our 2018 event.

We're asking those who attended and took photos to please submit them
for our collection. The Call For Photos is open now and will remain open
through the month of May.

Here are several ways you can submit the photos:

1. Re-visit your Attendee Information Portal. You will now see the
"Upload Photos" option. Click on the button and select the photos on
your computer to upload. With most browsers you can upload multiple
photos in one action.

2. E-mail. Simply attach your photos (any reasonable number to one or
more messages) and e-mail to: dlv@divalas.vegas

You can use a .zip, .tar, etc. file if you like, but it's not necessary.

3. FTP. If you wish to use this method, write in and we'll give you the
login credentials.

4. Snailmail. You can send prints, a CD/DVD, a USB stick, or whatever.
If you want to do this, write in, we'll send you the snailmail address.

As for size of the photos, the bigger the better, of course :) but the
default size coming out of most digital cameras is fine. To be of
meaningful size, they should be 500 pixels on the longer side at

If you don't know anything about pixels and .tar and .zip, don't worry,
just send them in! :)

Photos taken with a phone are fine as long as they are clear and crisp
and of the minimum size above.

As for quality and adjustments, we have automated batches that normalize
size, brightness, and contrast.

Most photos taken with a reasonable quality digital or film camera or
smart phone present very well. If sending in prints, plain ordinary drug
store mini-lab prints scan and present quite well.
. . . . .

Please read this section very carefully:

Prior to placing the photos on line for the public to see, we allow
those who attended to review them. Everyone who attended has a
reasonable number of no-questions-asked "NO WAY" deletions for any
photographs in which they appear.

Those who attended will also be able to recommend photos they like with
a "Like" button, which indicates that they find the photo to be
appealing and recommend it for the final DLV 2018 follow-up pages.

Here's the way all of this works.

As soon as we get the attendance reconciled, everyone who attended will
receive a link to the photo staging area. Those who attended will be
able to review the photos as they come in and, as noted above, mark them
for deletion or recommend them for the final DLV 2018 pages.
. . . . .

Now, as to when the photos will be on line for all to see ...

Here's the planned timing.

We'll keep the Call For Photos open through June 15. We will keep the
staging area open for review until July 1, after which we will start
composing the final DLV 2018 follow-up pages. Target date for roll-out
of the pages will be in August of 2018, slightly earlier than in most
previous years.

Everyone can help move things along by following up on attendance
confirmations promptly and getting the photos in ASAP.

If there are any questions or concerns on photos, please let us know.

Big Sister Thanks:

Delaney (Big Sister Coordinator) writes:

My sincerest thanks to all who participated in this years' Big/Little
Sister program.

During the course of DLV, I spoke to many of you individually, and was
passed on more than one success story of a new person who otherwise was
unwilling to go out in public, and had a wonderful experience.

My special thinks to all the Big Sisters, without you the program could
not function !!
