Since there seems to have been some confusion about how this works, let me clarify.
#1 You must be 18 or older to listen or participate to the show therefore we assume that you are 18 if you are listening to the show, participating in contests, signing up for the show, etc etc. You must be willing to state that you are 18 for recording if asked. Anime Round Table and Review and FanOff are not responsible for verifying your age - you are.
#2 Don't be an ass. Simple rule right? You'd think. Not so much for some people. We're the hosts so we can pretty much do what we want so don't even start with that argument. It's our job to be asses and kick people out or yell at them if we have to. We don't like having to do it but we have to. As a guest, your job is to participate in the discussion without us pulling your teeth out and to not be rude, insulting or annoying or we won't pick you to be back on again. As a matter of fact, be too bad and we will drop you mid show.
#3 Make sure your equipment works before you sign up for the shows. If you need help testing it, you can contact us and ask for help testing it but we don't want to settle on a guest only to find that said guest doesn't have working equipment.
#4 Don't email, IM, or PM us asking if you were chosen to be on the show. We will let you know if you are picked. If you constantly pester us, you will get blacklisted.
#5 Watch the anime of the week. If you have not watched it, do not have it, and have no intention of getting it or watching it before the episode airs you will not be on the episode. This show is all about discussing what happens on the anime. If you haven't watched the anime you will have nothing to contribute. We don't care if you read the manga, read the wiki article, think you are the world's expert on everything. If you haven't seen what we are discussing, you will not be allowed to be that week's guest. Period. No exceptions. And in case no one noticed, we will mock you unmercifully for trying to do this.
I think that's about it. If we think of more, we will add them later. But the general idea is, we post the thread for you to sign up, we pick who will be on the show the Thursday before that show airs and the emails should go out between that Thursday and Saturday. So if you are hoping to be on that show, just make sure you watch the anime sometime that week to refresh your memory. It's not going to hurt anyone to watch it and refresh their memories because even if you don't get on live, you can still make points in chat that can get brought up on air. Any questions?
