I used the steps I followed for the upcoming ReadaThing.
I'm sure others have used more or fewer steps, but this is a place to start.
I also included some History. I had forgotten that the first six ReadaThings were single day "ReadaThons". (The longer RaTs are a more recent invention.)
Anyway, feel free to comment/ask questions below. Minor edits of the RaT How To wiki page are welcome, but it did take a long time to write up, so PM me if you think i've gotten something terribly wrong and want to delete or change huge portions.
P.S. This is also my way of saying that I won't be able to set up any future ReadaThings. I'm happy to consult, but need to focus my limited energy in other directions. Thanks for understanding. In the Relay Race Spirit of ReadaThing, I pass the torch!
My hope is that posting the process will enable groups of new folks to get us on a more frequent schedule of ReadaThings. So as people stumble upon this thread I encourage you all to be willing to (1) figure out which pieces of the puzzle you might be able to help with and (2) feel free to put a call out for other folks to do the rest.
When I first started participating/helping I knew nothing about dealing with the WIKI, but eventually (with help) I figured it out. Sometimes it works better to divide up the chores (monitoring the threads, spreading the word/PR, WIKI, Time Zone Chart, etc.). There's NO requirement that one person do everything . . . but sometimes it works out that way. :)
