That looks pretty comprehensive!

Just a suggestion _ for those who complain that the results of these comps are more driven by campaigning and personalities than the bids themselves, and those that like to put in lots of work with their graphics, why not hold a few sub-votes in the campaigning week (between the short list announcement and the final votes)?

These could be polls for, eg, best logo, best bidbook, best technical bid etc.

Actually, for the last one, maybe the old "technical evaluation" used in the GBOC's original 2022 short list stage could be used (and filled out by those who have an interest in doing so). I think Ryan and Mo are the ones with the formula for that.

If they PM you are I it, then I would consider using it. The only problem is that after a week of voting, people might be voted out for the real rounds.

Also, since this has been raised to me.

Since you can not official start a bid until October 1st, please PM your intention of bidding so that your work previous to October 1st is not wasted by someone else snaking your city. First come first serve bases, seamus don't bother, I already know your intention.

Roltel made a suggestion of having a pre-competition to select a session hosts. So basically a five page litte thing that describes, hotels, transportation, the city, and the convenction centre that is going to be used.

Is there any takers,

If others are willing to compete, I'm in with Boston.

Also these comp will run from Oct 1st to Oct. 7th.

I take it we can't announce our bids until October 1st. That means no public announcement of 2028 bid cities on the boards right?

I think it is ok to hint it on the 2028 thread (a lot already did so, so you wouldn't be breaking any rules)...I think they mean anything formal, like a formal thread, etc.

and by the way the rules/timeline looks great guys :D

I think he wants to keep it hush hush until that day. Then everyone can announce their formal bids but in the meantime everyone can start working on it.

Hmmm. I can't see any harm with announcing beforehand, after all, plenty of people already claimed various cities for 2028 in the months before the WC comp took place. In fact, if you're really keen on doing a bid and want a particular city, it might make sense to stake your claims early. I think the October 1-7 is more a time slot to confirm you're really going ahead to assist in managing the comp.

As Faster mentioned earlier, if you want to claim a city, PM him and let him know. First come first serve.

Well, we can't do years like, say, 2016, with real existing bid rounds.

And yes, 2020 and 2024 have already been decided and been entered into the GamesBids rollcall of imaginary events hosts. And doing things like quickly slipping in the 2026 contest was made so all our comps were in order and consecutive.

That said, if these things go on too long, we will reach a point where the dates become more science fiction than realistic bid exercises.

I'd like to do something... maybe Berlin, Chicago, or maybe somewhere in Asia. Aaron, if you'd be interested in a bid partner, I'm available and wouldn't want to do it solo if avopidable; the Hotmail account should still be functional if you want to leave a message.

Because of suggestions and rethinking

ix. A map of the city with highlighted areas for where the venues are located

- you still need maps in the bid book, but areas do not have to be highlighted

xvii. A plan for accommodations, note 80,000 rooms are required.

since some smaller cities are the preference, 50,000 is fine.
