Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

Although, now I have to ask, when does the 18 month clock start--at the time of the test or the time of an audition? Time of audition would make more sense, but I'm not sure anyone ever said they were told specifically. They told us starting from the day of the audition. My audition was in July, so...

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

I just missed promotion to Continental A last season, but ultimately didn't make it. Now I find myself bumped up to Taiga A, which is weird One of my other referrals asked if we could move to Taiga, so I asked Thorsten if my branch (I have my own branch! That's so weird) could move there. Welcome t...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I was looking through my emails and very sadly saw that I got an invitation to audition in L.A. last fall. :cry: Obviously I missed the window to respond. I don't know exactly what happened - whether it got caught on my spam filter or whether I just overlooked it. I also don't know whether this mea...

Re: TD 367 - 30 - FINAL STANDINGS

Thanks for hosting! I know how much blood sweat and tears go into writing and scoring TDs

Would've finished in the Top 3 if I had gone with Modern Family over Transparent!! Them's the brakes

Incidentally, whatever happened to TD 368 Games?

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Got the call last month, mid-January 2018. Tape this week, February 14th, 2018. I was right up against my 18-month window and had written off my chances of getting on the show, so don't despair if you're nearing the end of your time in the eligibility pool! Valentine’s Day! How fun! I was really ho...

Through December 2012, I had been selected to audition for J! four out of the five times I was eligible.
