Ha cheers for describing me as a 'quality player' Andy, definitely a first!

As you kind of imply I know I was pretty lucky to get on having played a shitload of apterous and being a 21 year old male which seems to be the demographic they're trying to limit. I wouldn't be surprised at all if I 'slipped the net' as I did my phone audition and had all the correspondence after with Sarah Foulkes and didn't meet Damian in all the time I was at the studio.

Regardless though I had a quality time and hope you get on soon as you actually are a quality player and seem like a top guy from the apterous games we've had.

I hit the screens on Feb 23rd in the unlikely event anyone is interested!

Hold up. Damian wouldn't let me on because at the time I'd "played 4000 games on apterous, which creates a skill imbalance compared to the average armchair fan who plays along with 100 or 200 shows a year".
Niall's a quality player and has 3300 under his belt (let's say 3000 at time of applying?) and been around a lot longer than I have. Can't help but feel a tiny bit hard done to there.
Andy. Have you actually at some point downloaded the aplication form, filled it in and returned it?

Because presumably once you do that you must at least be given an audition; as far as I know nobody gets refused that opportunity.

Or have you done an audition, scored highly, but still been rejected? Niall says he's had no contact with/from Damian, so don't understand why you have.

Even if they have rejected you temporarily on the grounds of too many good "apterites" then surely if you have auditioned and achieved a high standard it must be your turn next series, or the one after. If another 3 or 4 top players from here applied at that time - Barry for example, Giles maybe - then one of them would have to wait, not you. First come first served surely.

Two other points:

I don't understand the idea that other people are put off applying by the apterous contestants. Most viewers don't know about apterous, so how can it put them off? They do know there are a handful of very good players that they probably wouldn't beat, but still apply for the fun of it. That's always been the case, long before apterous. If they find out about this site in the course of applying they often seem to join anyway.

The other issue is the age one - many potentially good 50+ players have already been on in their 30s or 40s. Obviously there are exceptions such as the two Daves in the last series, but inevitably the pool of available older contestants is smaller and weaker than for 20-30 year olds.

But it depends on whether Andy or Josh just happened to apply when a lot of other Apterites did, or whether it was just an average amount. If Damian only wants x Apterites a series when say x+2 are applying each time, it's not a case of spreading them out, but turning them away.
Spread out to another series, though, not turned away altogether. Not too much of a hardship, surely?

After all great players going head to head in a close match makes for great television, the one example that made me say the above line was the Innis Carson - Chris Davies semi final, now that was a cracker and a really close match

It wouldn't necessarily work though. If Apterites are applying at a higher rate than Damian wants them to go on, the backlog just gets bigger and bigger, so in a few years an Apterite would have to wait 20 series for a slot.

Technically, I filled it in 80%, then sent an email asking a question about the form, and was answered by the man himself saying there's not much point sending it, and to do it in 12 months instead. Not sure how he got hold of it, maybe just recognised the name off apto and kind of commandeered it.

So he still plays apterous then since I think you joined after he left.

He doesn't necessarily play. All it takes is an occasional glance of some of the apterous stats pages, and probably Pro Ranks, to get an idea of who the upcoming big hitters are.

OK, but why not send the form anyway and ask for an audition? It would be quite a precedent not to even allow someone to audition at all, denying them a chance to prove they are good enough.

If they want to refuse places to the best apterites at the moment there's not much you can do about that, but in that case there ought to be a waiting list of some kind. It seems if you hadn't happened to ask a question before sending the form off you'd at least have proved your worth at an audition by now, and may even have recorded. If you audition and do better than anyone else there - which you probably will - then surely they at least have to say "Yes, but not this series if you don't mind".

I can see why the production team may be a little concerned that all the finalists might be youngish contestants "trained" on here but wonder if they have thought about one other aspect of this. Obviously people coming on to apterous can practice a lot. They can become very good, as you have done, and thus can earn the admiration/respect etc. of other very good players, who in turn want to see them on the show doing well. Ed, Adam, Graeme and Mark all had great support on here during their runs (although all 4 would surely have done very well in any series, apterous or not).

But with that backing also comes the pressure of other people's expectations. So maybe Damian and his team should also consider that whilst yes, strong apterites may dominate the final stages of a series it's also true that those people have a lot of pressure on them simply because of how they have prepared. Mark in the last series and Tom Barnes in the one before both lost out to people who didn't have that burden. Maybe that played some part.

Fair.

I was under the impression Josh did just that though, and also got told to try again in a year as well.
Damian also said that contestants that apply get screened so to speak, and because I might have hypothetically sworn about a hypothetical losing finalist from series 65 in the public domain, then my application could potentially have been binned straight away so I don't regret not sending it then (and have since deleted said comment, also would advise others to do the same btw if there's anything like that on here, twitter etc)

All in all, I'd like what is best for the show and if it assists the longetivity(sp?) of the show in any way then it's cool I guess - I just feel pretty hard done to when other good or experienced players can get on without issue.

When you do get on, and your final comes down to the crucial conundrum LOVINGYET . . .

Whether it's the result of quotas or not, I really don't enjoy the first couple of quarter-finals these days, where a top 'amateur' who's had the good fortune to avoid an apterite in his first five or six shows is trounced by forty points or more. I'd be happier to see eight top apterites at the end, but I wouldn't want to see 60+ shows with top apterites in the preliminaries. A problem without an easy solution.

Delaying entries only works of course if the number of new stars is going to fall off. Otherwise it's a bit like the pensioner who accepted that decimalisation was a good idea in the long run, but felt they should have waited till all the old people had died before bringing it in.

People often say stuff on the internet that they wouldn't say face to face, though. I've certainly overstepped the mark sometimes, and have definitely had lots of vile posts written about myself: "more sinned against than sinning"! ;)

I think it would be rather hypocritical of Damian Eadie if he used someone's internet posting against them in an application to be on the programme, since he remains producer despite some of the nasty stuff he posted on here when he used to post regularly.

I hope you get on the next series, Andy. :)

Nah he said to me through e-mail that on who wants to be a millionaire or some other quiz, someone turned out to be a wife-beater or similar, and since then, ITV/C4 (largely the same producers) have been really really stringent when it comes to screening people on forums, social networks, etc, to try and be extra safe, so they'd take a look at this forum too. Pretty understandable.

I remember big headlines once about a guy who'd been on WWTBAM the night before and been in trouble for kicking a dog down some stairs or something of that nature.

Yeah, fair enough, maybe. I applied years ago (and failed the auditions!), and remember there being a part on the application form about any criminal convictions. I suppose the internet check is just a modern extension of that, although it seems a bit stalky to someone of my generation and sense of privacy.

I expect they'd only be bothered by serious stuff, not simply a few ill-chosen words on a forum/messageboard/etc.

It not so much not wanting to see the best, as wanting to see a contest. Walkovers become monotonous after a while.

I had my 2nd audition on Tuesday. It was much harder than the first one and I got 1 less in the letters round than my first audition, 1 less conundrum and 1 more numbers but got through this time so maybe the difficulty level was taken into account. I didn't get a 7 in any of the letters rounds which can't have happened on many successful auditions before! No filming date received yet.

Best of luck Jonathan. You've arguably got it a bit more difficult than the others - if you do well enough to make the finals (which I don't doubt you will, having seen the amount of practice you've put in recently), you'll have to play again the same or following day.

All the best to everyone involved. Win or lose, try to enjoy it.

Can someone give me the exact dates for the finals, as there seems to be lots of misshapen mush coming from all areas, so if someone can put me in the right direction, it would be much obliged. :D

Woop. Got an audition for Feb. Never expected to hear from them. Must have sent the application about two years ago.
