Call For Volunteers:

First of all, we wish to thank all who worked on DLV 2018 for their
efforts in producing a very successful and highly-enjoyed event! Without
our many dedicated volunteers, Diva Las Vegas could not happen!
. . . . .

All of those great times you just had were made possible because
somebody stepped forward and made those activities happen!

Planning and organization of DLV is done mostly on line via e-mail. It's
interactive and participatory. Volunteers form what we call the DLVORG
group.

We will be starting up the 2018-2019 volunteer group shortly.

The DLVORG group is not at all closed or exclusive. With very rare
exception, it's open to anybody who expresses interest in helping out
with DLV.

DLVORG people participate at the decision-making level, the organizing
and planning level, and at the nuts-and-bolts level.

All of the activities that happened at DLV 2018 were "adopted" by one or
more of our volunteers, who took the necessary steps to make them
happen.

If you want to do your part to make a great thing even better, to give
back what DLV has given to you, and help to run an event that has
literally changed lives, please step forward!

(Those of you who filled out the volunteer form as part of the DLV
follow-up survey do not need to take any more action.)

To volunteer, please do one of the following:

Visit the URL:

http://divalas.vegas/dlvvol1.html

Fill out the screen and check a few things, click SUBMIT, and you're on
your way!

Alternatively, simply send a brief e-mail message to dlvorg@divalas.vegas
and state you wish to volunteer. (Or, just reply to this mailing and
state that you wish to volunteer.)

Please include a sentence or two stating how you are most interested in
helping out. Anything general or specific is perfectly fine. Anything
from one sentence to a book length manuscript will be ok. :)

We're not asking for any kind of a major time or effort commitment on
your part. All we ask is that each volunteer organize, or assist with
one activity. That's it.

If you're a bit shy, that's fine. We'll find something for you where you
don't have to go cold-calling vendors or anything like that.

And yes, out-of-the-box thinking is encouraged! As you know, we're not
limited to the things that traditionally happen at TG events, and we're
certainly not limited to those which have already happened at DLV.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Please rate our vendors:

While your experiences are fresh in mind, please take a few minutes to
rate the various facilities we used for DLV, including your hotel and
the places you may have visited on your own time.

Please take a few minutes to visit our "BIG LIST" here"

http://divalas.vegas/vendors/

All of the new venues we used for DLV 2018 should now appear on the
list. If you wish to add any additional vendors, please use the
appropriate link at the above URL.

Also, if you notice any errors on the Big List, such as a facility which
has closed, moved, or has been renamed, please call it to our attention
by leaving a comment under that particular vendor.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Survey reminder:

If you have not yet taken this year's follow-up survey (it's briefer
than last year's) please take a few minutes and do so.

Please visit this url:

http://divalas.vegas/2018survey.html

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.

We truly appreciate everyone's feedback!

The survey will remain on line through Friday, May 25.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Photo status and updates:

Big thanks to all who have already submitted photos!

We place our received photos in a special "staging" area on the web, to
allow those who attended to preview the photos and mark any which they
do not like for deletion, before they are placed on the current DLV 2018
follow-up pages.

Here's the way this works ...

Everyone who attended (and marked as present on the roster) will receive
a link to the photo staging area, most likely during the coming week.

This will allow you to view the photos and to mark any in which you
appear for deletion, if you do not like them. Any reason you have,
including "I just don't like the way I look in that photo" are valid
reasons for deletion.

Also. you will be able to "like" the photos you enjoy, to recommend that
they be placed on the final DLV 2018 follow-up pages.

Please be watching your inboxes for the staging area links. If you
attended DLV 2018 and do not receive this by next Thursday at the very
latest, please let us know (email dlv@divalas.vegas) and we'll get
things straightened out.
. . . . .

Our Call For Photos continues and will remain open through June 15.

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.

1a. The same upload link has been added to the photo staging area this
year.

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
minimum.

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.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
You do not have to wait a full year:

One "complaint" which we always hear at DLV was along the line of why do
you only have this once per year!

For those who enjoyed DLV and want to do a similar event this fall,
you're in luck!

Pinkfest, our sister event, another "vacation, not a convention" is will
happen in Chicago from Tuesday September 25 through Sunday September 30.

Like DLV, Pinkfest activities occur all over the Chicago area, using a
mixture of "mainstream" and "alternative" venues. If you've attended
DLV, you are bound to see some familiar faces at Pinkfest.

Please consider joining us for our 18th. annual Pinkfest. Further
information appears on line at:

https://pinkfest.lgbt/ (No "www", no ".com", just pinkfest.lgbt)

We also have the Pinkfest Discussion Forum on line at:

http://www.geekbabe.com/dlv/mydlv/mainforum/viewforum.php?f=13

You can join the Pinkfest mailing list for the latest news. Just e-mail
pinkfest@pinkfest.lgbt and say that you want to join the Pinkfest mailing
list.

Any questions about Pinkfest, just yell! :)

Hope to see you in Chicago this September!
