SUBMISSION FAQ


Below is a list of frequently asked questions or other important information visitors may want to know about submitting information to The World of Mime Theatre (WMT).

1. Do you accept submissions from all Mime performers, teachers, etc.?
2. How long will it take for my submission to be added to the listings?
3. Why are there no listings for a particular country?
4. Why is a well-known performer I know of not listed on the site?
5. Why is there no information on street Mime or interactive Mime (for parties and private/corporate events)?


1. Do you accept submissions from all Mime performers, teachers, etc.?
     No.  Mime is performed is a variety of ways, and is very often combined with, or applied to, other performing arts.  WMT's mission is not to decide what is Mime and what is not, but the website has a very particular focus, and only information that falls within this focus will be included in the website.
     The focus of the website is summarized as:

     If a Mime artist/teacher at times performs or teaches Mime in any of the ways mentioned above that are not included in the focus of the website, but his/her primary Mime work does fall within the scope, WMT may choose to include them in our listings.  The site administrator is willing to discuss with anyone, at length, whether an artist's work falls within the scope of the website in order to determine whether he/she should be included in WMT's listings.

2. How long will it take for my submission to be added to the listings?
    
WMT receives submissions every week from people in all parts of the world.  The site's administrator carefully reviews all submissions before deciding whether or not to add the new information to the website.  Visitors submit information much faster than it can be reviewed, so there is a long backlog of submissions waiting to be reviewed.  Some submissions are given priority, such as listings submitted to the Mime Theatre Calendar, since this information is time-sensitive, and changes to existing listings, as these changes require little or no review and can usually be made quickly and easily.  Other submissions must be reviewed as time permits in order to assure that they are appropriate for the website before they can be added.
     If your submission is accepted, you will receive an e-mail telling you so, and showing you where to find your listing.  If it is rejected, you will receive an e-mail explaining the reason.  We may also write you to request additional information to help us consider your submission.  If you do not receive a response, you are welcome to resubmit, but we ask that you wait at least a few months before doing so.

3. Why are there no listings for a particular country?
     WMT considers information about Mime anywhere in the world for our listings.  If a particular country does not appear on the website or does not appear on a particular page, this is because either we do not have information on Mime in that country that we consider to be within the scope of the website, or we have received submissions of information about Mime in that country but have not yet been able to review those submissions.  Please be assured that WMT does not discriminate against any particular country or region of the world.

4. Why is a well-known performer I know of not listed on the site?
     Performers are listed on WMT based on 1) the information we know about that performer, which may be too limited for us to determine whether the performer's work falls within the scope of the website, and 2) the site administrator's determination that a performer's work does in fact fall within the scope of the website.
     Mime is practiced all over the world, and while WMT's listings continue to grow, there are some performers we are simply unaware of, even though they may be well-known in a particular country.  We welcome visitor submissions to help us learn about performers not yet listed.
     Some performers known as Mime artists may, based on the judgment of the site's administrator, perform work that falls outside the scope of this website.  If a visitor feels someone should be added to the listings, we will consider their submission and either add the performer or let them know our reasons for rejecting the submission.

5. Why is there no information on street Mime or interactive Mime (for parties and private/corporate events)?
     WMT has a particular focus within the variety of ways in which Mime is used in performing.  Street Mime and interactive Mime fall outside this focus.  (See FAQ number 1 for more on this subject.)
