After the first phase of registration yesterday DLSU have released the list of all teams who registered.
You can find it here.
They have highlighted a lot of duplicate entries (in grey) and suspect duplicates (in yellow). However instead of just deleting them they have sent out the whole list and asked for input. If you have registered you should check the list and make sure you are not mistakenly down as a duplicate.
Dear World Debating Community,
Thank you for participating in Phase 1 of the registration for De La Salle Worlds!
By as early as 1030AM Manila time, we have received more than a thousand team applications. Such a huge number of registration applications initially slowed down the server, but the team was ready for any eventuality and we are happy to tell you that the server never crashed as opposed to what may be perceived as such.
In the first 30 seconds of registration when there was a massive influx of individuals visiting the page, the traffic from the server became extremely busy, that as a preventive measure, the server slowed itself down a bit to be able to cope with the number of registrants in order for it not to completely crash.
This did not mean however, that certain information did not get through. The only trouble was loading the confirmation page which notifies the registrant that the form has been sent to the system. The information was sent on time, exactly when individuals clicked the submit button. Evidence for this is that the first registration form was sent within 22 seconds of the opening of registration, despite having trouble loading the confirmation page.
We would like to assure everyone that the data in the initial list of registrants are indeed the information you sent in particular time periods and that there is nothing to worry about.
At this point, we would like to ask you to review the list of registered institutions and determine the following:
1. if your institution has duplicate entries
2. if the person who registered for your institution is really your representative
3. if the name of your institution is completely spelled out
The Registration Team has done a preliminary review of the data and their comments are also seen on the file.
Please send an email to the Registration and Communications Director, Crystal Francisco (firstname.lastname@example.org ), to update your registration. Institutions have until April 4, 2011 to send a verification email. After the given time, the registration team will remove registrants with unverified data such as ACRONYMS for institution name and duplicate entries. We believe that everyone will cooperate so that we can have the Official list of registered institutions available on or before April 7.
Should you have any questions or clarifications about the list, please do not hesitate to send an email to email@example.com and we will get back to you at the soonest possible time.
We can’t wait to take you all to Manila!
The Registration Team
