No, you're there. I just listed the first three. The list is made in no particular order, and it's not too long, but long enough. Other such random details about irrelevant shtuff.
Apparently, slightly less weird than most of you.

So lemme get this straight: We're keeping this forum, and after the post-mortem we're free to design it whichever way we want? How much freedom will we actually have in repurposing this forum?

The post-mortem and game threads will need to stay locked, prominent, and organized. I don't really care what you do in off-topic. Dana can give you more details.

We need to greatly expand off-topic or start a new forum if we want to keep this community alive though. What are the possibilities for that?

I theorize that by the end of the postmortem, there will be at least one additional item on that list.

Lots of us are really interested in this :D Is there anything in particular you're looking for in the next season that you can tell us without revealing spoilers? Have you planned that far or is it all up in the air right now while you recover from six months worth of sleep deprivation? Can we just submit what we believe are good scripts/premises?
They sometimes say, "the place where I am right now was circled on a map for me"... Unfortunately, I kind of suck at orienteering.

Like echo chamber on Facebook and you will be immediately informed as soon as submissions are made open. We don't have an outline yet that is publicly viewable because we're still working on the one for us and because we also still have to crowd source the funding. Once were funded, People following the page will be informed about the process for submissions. Thanks!
