I’m sorry this has been roadblocking you—if it’s helpful, you can email your application to the team: firstname.lastname@example.org
So just to be clear: the roadblock here is that without a Google account I cannot even view the application questions. So I still wouldn’t have been able to email email@example.com my application. The application is just not publicly viewable without a Google account. There should be a way to configure Google Forms where a Google account sign in is not required but optional. I have set up Google Forms like this in the past for my University group where some students used other email providers. However, I’m aware Google has changed significantly in 6-8 years so maybe now it is required. Regardless, I ended up just using some other G account of mine for it that I usually wouldn’t. So problem resolved. Note that I expressed annoyance, but I acknowledge I’m an edge case so I’ll understand if this will just not be seen as an important enough issue to fix. That said, restricting applications to only people with Google accounts is still… odd, so I guess I’d still recommend that future Future Forum applications not have this issue.I think every EA or EA-adjacent org I have filled out half a million forms for at this point always use Typeform. This, I think, is why I’ve never ran into this problem before, despite not using my Google account for years at this point. So it might be a good idea to use Typeform instead of Google Forms in the future.
