Default Old school Season 3 preparation thread

After season 1 and 2 of the Old school is best school series were a full success Hwbot plans to make a third season to once again give retro hardware lovers and tweakers the chance to compete at highest level.

Because of this we search a competition manager for this task. After Antinomy and Lanbonden did tremendous jobs at designing the structure and stages of season 1 and 2, we now want you to do the job for season 3

These are the main tasks for old school is best school season 3

- come up with a theme (for artwork)
- come up with competition structure
- come up with competition stages

It does not have to be all done by one person alone necessarily. If there is structure people agree on or competition manager determines, prominent old-school participants of first two seasons might plan different competition stages to enter their know how and experience for example.

Feedback is welcome, volunteers of course as well - preferably we would want the Old school is best school participants to manage this in a way they enjoy the third season as much as possible

I think it will be enough time, the old school 3 will for sure not start before october, maybe later - so you have at least 4-5 weeks to get all you need to organize it

Nope. That's the difficulty factor for that round.

I sent Frank a PM, we need to make a few adjustments like limit age of quadros, there are modern M5000s iirc for 10k we all do not want to see, but he did an awesome job so far
