I also am looking for my marathon to be approved

@warm_hamwarm_ham Some core information seems to be missing in your request. I'd like to point you to the information in the initial post in this thread:

• You must provide as much information about the marathon as possible : onsite or online, purpose of the marathon, eventual supported charity, estimation of dates and duration, stream channel, list of mods... (these are examples).

Kindly provide more information about the marathon so that we can proceed with reviewing your request.

Thanks Daravae. In addition to the information I submitted on the previous page:

Purpose: mini-marathon to showcase speedruns/longplays of experimental and avant-garde games
Charity: none

With all due respect - and I don't know if this has been proposed in the past - it'd be nice if a role could be assigned to users who coordinate marathons so that we can set marathon pages up ourselves. I've gone through this forum for three ART TA marathons now and this is the second time I've had to significantly delay opening submissions while waiting for a moderator to either approve the request or follow-up asking for more info. Can this be streamlined in some way?

@warm_hamwarm_ham I'm going to butt in here and say we're going to reject the request.

The first marathon hardly had much to it to even warrant a page, the second marathon looks like cesspool with some spam posts within the marathon's forum, you also had a handful of people submitting trailers and other non-relevant submissions. Not only that, but that marathon also couldn't maintain a 24 hour cause.

Thank you for your response to my inquiry

I have had a good time assembling a community of people who enjoy experimental games through coordinating these marathons. I'll just post signups somewhere else. Take care

If you've had a marathon approved you can always just rename it for future events. You don't have to keep requesting new ones. That's what I've done with Fleet Fest.

That's what we did too, but 2 years ago this stopped from working. Got 15 marathons out of that single page :')

I am wanting to edit my marathon page to setup for our next event. Now it is saying that I need to submit for a new event page? Can I not simply reuse the existing page?

If so, can someone wipe out the schedule for me so that I can start fresh? Thank you!

About how many days will I need to wait? We are going to be announcing the marathon today and would love to have the site already.
