Audition Update is moving. Click here to learn more.

Hello Everyone,

You’ve heard us talking about it all summer, and we’re finally ready to show you what we’ve been working on. I’m proud to announce that is moving to its new home on the Backstage Community.

What are the benefits of this new location? It’s anonymous, it's mobile-friendly, it’s easier to police spam content and fake accounts, and best of all, it has collapsed threads! In addition, our developer team will be able to make changes, fix bugs, and implement new features much faster and easier on this new platform.

You’ll notice there’s a banner across the top of the screen here advertising the new location. If you click through that link, it will bring you to the registration screen where you can create your account and automatically receive the “Veteran” flair for being an Audition Update user. Even if you already have a Backstage account, clicking through the link will grant you the flair automatically so everyone will know you’ve been here a while and know what you’re talking about.

We’ll be decommissioning this forum slowly over the coming weeks, so you should save any threads or details that you want to reference later at your earliest convenience.

We know this will really help to improve things here at Audition Update, and we want to thank you - the community - for being here with us through the whole process.

– The Backstage Community Team

    What are we thinking the odds are for non-eq tomorrow?


    Nobody can answer this for you. I’m not trying to be rude but this kind of question should go in the bitching post section. Nobody can answer this for you because nobody knows for sure. You need to make a decision based on whatever criteria/research you have. People keep posting these questions here and it causes problems when everyone is trying to get actual info on lists and in the room info the next day. If you aren’t sure of whether to go then wake up early and check back on here. Chances are someone will be there and will post how many people are on the list.
