As of this posting, if you emailed me, you are indeed in this OTTI round. Thank you kindly for your participation in OTTI 12!

Instead of confirmation emailing everyone tonight, I will email everyone tomorrow along with paypal payment info. So please keep an eye open for this. If you do not receive this email (I will post here after I sent all the emails), be sure to email me again.

Alrighty ... I believe there are just a few spaces left! :mrgreen: Please email me ASAP if you are interested in participating.

Everyone who has emailed me about participating should have receiced a confirmation email reply from me regarding payment information.

If you did not, then perhaps I did not receive your original email ... please resend it NOW. Thanks.

I have PMed a few members who PMed me and asked for an email from them. They are in, but they have not received an email from me as I await their emails. :mrgreen:

Please pardon me if I do not confirm payments ... my modem has decided to go on and off (it is well over 5 years old and living on borrowed time) ... it is working now and am crossing my fingers for tonight.

Still "room at the OTTI table!" I await 1 or 2 more participants.

All seats are taken for OTTI 12. If you are still interested, you can email your request to be on the waiting list. Sometimes a space either opens up or I added up participants incorrectly, etc.

Everyone who previously sent me an email to teachatmoderator@yahoo.com requesting to be in this OTTI 12, you should have received a confirmation and payment information. If you did NOT, please email me again NOW!

I still have to confirm payments, please be patient. Thanks!!! :mrgreen:

Although the addresses are seemingly reversed, a package arrived today ... 1 of 2 packages. Hopefully #2 will arrive tomorrow.

More photos to come ...
