Raise hand is not on the Reactions button. It's at the bottom of the Participants window. But the Thumbs Up button on the Reactions button could be used for that just as well.

Deja Vu
Bill Hanke AD 63
01:19:14
I think I used to golf with those guys
Div. D Dir. Chuck Mencke
01:19:55
Just a suggestion from a very old retired 25+ year IT Network engineer. Around an hour before getting online for the contest, reboot your modem and router for a more stable connection. It'll help stabilize your connection and clear out any latency.
Sam I Am
01:20:33
Good point Chuck!
Jenn Dodd
01:20:44
đź‘Ť
Sam I Am
01:21:22
I am!
District Director - Jamie Pickering
01:21:30
Unless you are very good at troubleshooting - please don't do what Chuck is suggesting
District Director - Jamie Pickering
01:21:39
OR
Sam I Am
01:21:52
It's amazing what he has done...
District Director - Jamie Pickering
01:21:52
You will not hold D25 responsible for anything that may happen
Mark Novak
01:22:00
Aplause machine
Division A Director Ninfa Flewitt
01:22:55
probably..
The chair
01:22:58
Everyone should pay attention to height of camera to give the most flatering camera angle.
Shelia
01:23:10
What happens if a computer/connection glitch occurs during a speech? Are there do-overs?
District Director - Jamie Pickering
01:23:23
no do-overs
Mark Novak
01:23:25
Speakers are going to need to reall plan
hstudmire
01:25:25
talking head!
Sam I Am
01:25:59
isn't that a name of an 80's band?
Div. D Dir. Chuck Mencke
01:27:25
Without a green screen, you have to have at least a P7 processor in your computer.
Penny vieau
01:27:39
Didn’t we see this one already? haha
tammy k
01:27:43
When I the listener hear slurring, is that my connection or the other person's connection.
District Director - Jamie Pickering
01:28:10
@tammy - that is Chris' mic
Area 51 Contest Chair - Thomas Checketts
01:28:11
It might be both
Donna Young
01:28:22
Interestingly some folks 'videos' move all the time and some do not... example Sam Hartman and Jamie's moves but mine (Donna Young) doesn't.... any thoughts or experiences that explain it?
Sanya Gupta
01:28:33
Where is the Raise Hand option?
Shelia
01:28:58
Are the judging items the same as if it's live?
Division A Director Ninfa Flewitt
01:28:59

District Director - Jamie Pickering
01:29:11

Toni
01:29:35
Reactions
Dennis Regan
01:29:39
do not see a reactions tab
Jim Jameson
01:29:40
How about saying any reaction will suffice - raised hand, thumbs up, or applause.
Nora Loyd
01:29:58
Where you find raise had depends on your device, phone/tablet vs PC
Sam I Am
01:30:03
reaction tab is the last tab on the right
Dennis Regan
01:30:17
that's record
Jim Jameson
01:30:27
yes depends on device - that's why i say any should do the trick
Sam I Am
01:30:38
reaction is after the record one
sandy swan
01:30:40
Device type definitely changes where things are
Sam I Am
01:30:52
it may be a setting issue
Bob Beideck
01:31:11
reaction doesn’t always stay on very long, that’s why raise hand
Dennis Regan
01:31:12
ok but not on my screen
hstudmire
01:33:04
virtual hndshke...soo timely lol
Emily the Great

Division A Director Ninfa Flewitt
01:33:47
ask away Penny
Chief Judge - Elizabeth Gray
01:34:13
Emily, only the timer's time is officla
The chair
01:34:13
There are a lot of good timing apps that will change the screen color.
Penny vieau
01:34:21
ok so I was scrolling and tried to put someone in my view and I am not understanding how to do this.
The chair
01:34:23
On your phone
Emily the Great
01:34:30
Elizabeth- being a smart alec ;)
Penny vieau
01:34:37
It only says pin video or chat
Elicia Cook
01:35:10
no grand bow bowing or curtseying to return control to the toastmaster?
District Director - Jamie Pickering
01:35:28
@penny - you scroll the top bar until the timer is there then leave it
Div. D Dir. Chuck Mencke
01:35:30
Emily the Great is always a smartie! (Being nice!)
District Director - Jamie Pickering
01:35:34
no other action needed
Charlie Bowles
01:35:35
Pin video is for each person to set the active speaker they want to see. Spotlight is ONLY for the Host (Chis) to designate who everuone will see.
Area 51 Contest Chair - Thomas Checketts
01:35:41
Photoshop in the trophy

Area 51 Contest Chair - Thomas Checketts
01:40:29
There is a Toasmaster Timer App you can get for your phone that will change color according to the time.
Mickey Barker
01:41:16

Galaxy J7 Prime
01:44:01

District Director - Jamie Pickering
01:44:34

Joyce
01:44:40
Priceless!
Bob Beideck

Bill Hanke AD 63
01:46:40
On a MAC you can get use Shift/Command/4 and draw a square around what you are trying to capture. It will show up on your desktop
Division A Director Ninfa Flewitt
01:46:45
Tech joke
Bill Hanke AD 63
01:47:02
Of Course
Sam I Am
01:49:45
snipping tool is awesome
Jeannie Turley
01:50:20
Can we use a snap shot from phone and send it to them.
District Director - Jamie Pickering
01:50:43
as a last resort
James Zhang
01:51:37
Is messaging the file in a private message to the chief judge ok?
District Director - Jamie Pickering
01:52:09
@james - we prefer email, but it's ultimately up to the Chief Judge.
James Zhang
01:52:43
Some of the mail servers have long delay, as much as 15 minutes
James Zhang
01:52:49
Private message in Zoom is instant
Tahseen Mohammad
01:52:59
Thank you, Chris. For the benefit of the absentees or the later comers, will you provide the recording of this session by email or on D25 FB page?
District Director - Jamie Pickering

Tahseen Mohammad
01:53:38
Thank you, Jamie
Bill Hanke AD 63
01:53:57
Thank you Chris for all this information
marcy trejo
01:54:04
Thank you
DaveP
01:54:33
so ballot counter needs to count ballots for all contests (2 or 3) in their block?
Toni
01:54:37
Great overview!
DaveP
01:55:09
thank you jamie!
Sara Seese
01:55:26
how long do y'all think the combined contests block will run total time
Diana
01:55:29
Is someone ensuring that helpers have this training?
Timer - Clark Pfarner
01:55:33
So what time commitment is this looking like for 2 or 3 blocks?
Sara Seese
01:55:53
and who is delivering the chocolate to the Helpers?
Div. D Dir. Chuck Mencke
01:56:06
Thank you Chris, Jamie, Elizabeth, and Diana for all the time you've invested in perfecting the process.
Chief Judge - Elizabeth Gray
01:56:18
The time commitment is roughly the same as an inperson contest
Bill Hanke AD 63
01:56:36
I am looking at the D25 website and I don’t see the scripts that you were saying was up there
Bill Hanke AD 63
01:56:46
Could you show us
Chief Judge - Elizabeth Gray
01:56:53
Bill, are you looking in the Contest Resources?
edbee
01:57:15
Speakers can be penalized for mic drop off? Like Chris'?
Shelia
01:57:53
good question edbee
thomas.checketts
01:57:57
Yes. That is why internet connection is crucial
Carla Fink
01:58:43
Not sure how to get my internet connection any more stable...
Bill Hanke AD 63
01:58:54
Yes
Sanya Gupta
01:59:01
Can the contestant be informed if there an audio issue during the speech?
hstudmire
01:59:05
have dates changed?
Chief Judge - Elizabeth Gray
01:59:35
@hstudmire - for some contests, yes.
hstudmire
02:00:06
thnx I"ll ck site
Diana
02:00:15
I think VIRTUAL word is on documents changed
Bill Hanke AD 63
02:00:20
Thank you
Sara Seese
02:01:33
are these zoom meetings private or locked In any way.
District Director - Jamie Pickering
02:02:21
the zooms are not lockedyou have to have the link to get in
Sam I Am
02:02:27
Can I invite guests to the contest?
District Director - Jamie Pickering
02:02:32
yes
The chair
02:02:32
It's Toastmasters. Of coarse its essential.
Div. D Dir. Chuck Mencke
02:02:49
Charlie depends on the speed of the NIC! If the laptop doesn't have a 1GB NIC and only a 100MB, 5G Wireless will be faster.
Sara Seese
02:03:25
I think it tells the HOST if the bandwidth or connection is faltering
Bill Hanke AD 63
02:03:34
It may a good idea to drop in on up coming contests that is coming up so you can get a feel of how things go
Carla Fink
02:03:57
We'll just do our best :)
The chair
02:04:04
It's too bad that people don't give a message to tell us when they are unstable.
The chair
02:04:27
Les
Sam I Am
02:04:48
lol
Sara Seese
02:04:48
limiting the audience to audio only may help preserve bandwidth fr the speakers
edbee
02:04:54
I resemble that comment
DD C Jen
02:05:51
Friendly reminder, being a helper at the contest can count towards Your Journey Awards :)
elena
02:05:58
I am on chrome too
Bill Hanke AD 63
02:06:10
MACs have a Zoom App
DD C Jen
02:06:17
And we start sounding like Chris's golfing buddies
Bill Hanke AD 63
02:06:18
Get a MAC lol
Division A Director Ninfa Flewitt
02:06:36
