View Full Version : Feeling confused & disappointed regarding the judge application of World

10-20-2012, 12:51 AM
I am a judge in HK. I mainly serve the Mainland China and Hong Kong. I have joined the World before & HJ 3 APCC & >5 DMF for serveral times.

When i was in DMF Chengdu in Feb 2012, i showed my interest in judging World this year. And i told the distributor and the cze staff regarding my willing to serve world. The email was also sent to the staff afterward. While i was in APCC 2012, i told my willing again. And again, was reponsed that "plz wait" & "the application was under processing"

I have tried to track my application before and the email was received with postivie response that the applicaiton was under processing. The latest email was received at July 31st, 2012 : "As soon as I hear reply from our OP team on your Judge application for WC 2012, I will let you know."

I do beleive my application was processing!

However, this is wrong. I have heard another reply from the local distributor. He simply forward wt CZE told him to me. Plz find it below:

It's too late for Alex to join us. We already closed applications for judging and already selected the staff. I believe we are bringing out a judge that speaks Chinese from Philippines. In the future, please let Alex know to watch this forum: http://forums.cryptozoic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=51. It contains all judge applications for all our major events. Here is the one from Worlds (applications ended in August): http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=19533.

WOW. what a shock! If application in Feb means "too late", I DO want to know what is the "just on time" application or "early" applicaiton would be.

I felt upset not only becoz the failure of the application but the way CZE dealt with my application.

I'm not certain on the specifics for Mainland China and Hong Kong, but for Staffing, Staff Calls are made, in which Volunteers and others can apply to get into the mix and have some sort of sponsorship when needed.

This are usually opened up during specific dates, I'm sorry if you feel left out or ignored, but there is a process to this, you didn't know about it, it seems, now you know.

Please do consider it and perhaps in the future you can join the team.

If you were willing to pay your own flight and hotel they might still take you.

As Yagami mentioned, there is definitely a process that goes on. An example of that and how it works can be found here (http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=20649) for the upcoming DMF in Florida in Feb 2013. This sign up for Worlds this year was found here (http://forums.cryptozoic.com/showthread.php?t=19533) and were only open 8-22 Aug. Unfortunately it seems like the people that you were talking to didn't know the way that this happens, at the point you are talking about there wouldn't have been an "application" for anyone to even have looked at, it's unfortunate that you got bad information in this regard. I hope this won't sour you for trying to get out and do events on the rest of the world stage in the future, CZE is always looking for qualified and enthusiastic judges/staff for events.

dear all

Thank u for all ur reply.

Actually I guess this disaster is all becoz of the miscommunication, misunderstanding and culture different.

It is a good lesson for me. And hope could join the world next yr.
