A Quick Tip About The Events System

Hello all,

Recently the events system was updated, bringing a change that is not entirely obvious. On some events, you may not see the option to RSVP for UNIV-101 credit. If this is the case, it means that all UNIV-101 RSVPs for the event/meeting are full. Please try another meeting.

Also, we are aware that RSVPing for an event and loading the site in general have been slow lately. We are currently looking into the issue. If you cannot get your RSVP to submit at all, please contact a TechServ Officer and we can force an RSVP for you in the system.

If you run into any problems with the system in general, please let us know.

For All UNIV-101 Students

Recently, we discovered the RSVP system, in particular for UNIV-101 bookings, was being abused with a single person booking more than one “ticket”. You may not, under any circumstances, RSVP more than once for a meeting, nor may you RSVP on someone’s behalf. We have now edited the system again so that UNIV-101 RSVPs should now cap out at 1 per person. General members, your “ticket” has not been changed. However, in order to clear out the abuse, we have been forced to once again reset all bookings. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, but you must once again redo all bookings you have made for meetings.

In the future, if we discover further abuse of the system, it will be grounds for termination of your membership for repeat offenders.

New RSVP System Is Now Live

Thank you for your patience while we gave our event RSVP system a much needed upgrade. It should be less broken now. However, as this is a new system, please be aware that the method to RSVP has changed. Our newly upgraded system uses “tickets” to record RSVPs to events. Two options are now listed. Please read the descriptions carefully to ensure you select the proper ticket.

All University 101 Students: In order to receive credit, you must select the option labeled UNI101 RSVP prior to the night’s meeting. RSVP will automatically close at 6pm.

All other TechServ members: As always, if you are a general TechServ member, you do not need to RSVP for meetings. However, there is now an option to do so. Again, while not required, you are more than welcome to RSVP so we can get a head count for each meeting.

If you had RSVP’d for a meeting after 2/21/12, you need to Re-RSVP as we have lost all useful records of RSVPs. 

Some revised instructions have been posted on our UNIV-101 page.

If you have any issues using the new system, please let an Officer know so we can address it.

Previously on TechServ: LAN Party

Thank you for your interest in the TechServ and DragonLAN LAN Party. However, due to the nature of the event, the event was only livestreamed and no recording is available. We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who participated and hope you had fun despite the breaker popping.
