Interest polls -- please take!

Hello everyone! While Tara and I had every intention of doing a general interest poll to get an early estimation on numbers, people seem to be particularly anxious, so better to do it earlier rather than later. To give you and us a better sense of numbers, here are two polls -- please fill them out! Once we see the projected numbers we can do a thorough FAQ on how things will run. We think there will be more lottery spots than people fear :D

EDIT: guys, please take the right poll. There is one for reserved ONLY and one for lottery ONLY. If you don't click the "yes" box in the first poll, you shouldn't be filling it out. Yes, I'm making color-coded spreadsheets, but you're confusing my numbers :( I may have to void the first poll if people keep taking the wrong one...

Only a little over 50 people are eligible to take reserve spots, and we do NOT expect all of those to take them. Included in this list is those who have done the fest more than once (in good standing), as well as those who were pinch hitters in the last round. Below is that list, for easy reference.

If you are not on the list but swear you are eligible, it could be because a) we didn't have complete records from round one (which we didn't mod) and it was an oversight or b) it's another kind of oversight (spreadsheet fail?). We put together the list quickly in order to alleviate people's fears, and may have slipped up somewhere. Please email us with questions! There are only a small handful of multi-time participants not eligible for reservation -- I can count the number on one hand!

Now onto the polls! Please fill out the correct poll. One is for reserved spots, the other for lottery spots. This is to give us the best sense of how many people are interested so we can choose our participant caps and figure out the best system for running the lottery.
