    Default 2010 Upgrades

    **MODERATOR'S NOTE**: For those of you not already on this list, I'm not going to be adding anyone new. The people (cowards) who were lurking and didn't post until they'd been upgraded are horribly skewing the results of the upgrades:total alternates ratio and that's not fair for the other alternates. If you got in, congrats, welcome, and feel free to post here, but I'm not going to be adding any new names. If you're already on the list and get upgraded though, please do be sure to update us in the thread here.
    ---

    Thought we'd start a new post for alternates and the upgrades to follow. I added everyone from the Official Applicant Thread, but if I missed you, let me know (and use the same format as in the other thread)!

    Thanks for taking the initiative on this thread. I can't wait to see how it plays out.

    If it's anything like 2008/2009 upgrade threads (which I read in their entirety out of boredom this morning), we should start hearing about the very first upgrades in about a week.

    Dunno if you wanna import names from the official forum, but d'Artagnan and Bassbone over there are fellow DC alternates.

    Wow - thanks for setting this up! So... maybe we should start a vote on when the first upgrade happens.... I'm calling May 4th.

    Yeah, I just counted how many alternates there were on the list last year - 112!!! We're not even to 20 yet on this list. Granted, I think there are fewer people lurking/posting in ITIL overall, but it's still quite a marked difference. And thus, a better chance of upgrades.

    And I'll just let people post here if they want to be added.

    Reading the Brit threat and the Official thread had got me thinking there were loads more UK alts (probably counting everyone twice...). This is very reassuring.

    Thanks, Maudlin.


    ( Edit: I've read a lot of the 2009 thread, but it's very cluttered... Maybe really just keep this for updates and news of people dropping out and upgrades from other forums? It'll be nice if next year's people can just read this and find out when things were happening, and we already have Alternates Anonymous. )

    Village Drunk, I thought the same! I think there's 5 or 6 more on the official forums but it's not as bad as I first thought.

    (I'm going against my own advice already, but....)

    Yes, definately JJ. I've also had second thoughts about having to pay for the police reply slip straight away - am I right in saying this is the first time UK alts have had to do this? - maybe that will put a few people off!

    I know there's going to be a lot of posts about the police reply, but I've just got a query.
    I've lived in London my whole life, so I only have to deal with the Met.
    I've downloaded the Reply form 3019 from the Met website, but it says that it's not for employment vetting. And also, which do we choose, Police National Computer information or MPS specific information?

    At least one alternate in Canada/Toronto will get bumped since I will be turning down my acceptance. Best of luck to alternates. And to those that didn't, JET is a minor aspect in the grander scheme of life with all its dynamics and opportunities. Have a great time to those that got in! But try not to let it get to your head ... like you've just become the greatest thing on earth.
