I'm going to open signups for unofficials again, with a few changes. This time I'm not going to close applications at any time, submit one whenever you feel like it. I'm still only going to post a schedule once per month, though. If a given month doesn't have enough viable applications there won't be any unofficials that month. I won't be posting a schedule with a single tournament for the whole month.

Also, because it's a question I keep getting to answer:
To apply for an unofficial tournament, post a thread in here outlining the format and any special rules your tournament will have. The amount of details you put into this post is up to you, but it needs to be detailed enough that the complete tournament format can be understood by reading the thread. For example, if you want to host a Best-of-Three USM OU tournament with no Z-Crystals, it would technically be enough to post "bo3 standard usm ou with z crystals banned" because every relevant detail is included there. If your format is more complicated, you need to give more details. Additionally, please state your availability for the month ahead when you post an application. It helps a lot when making a schedule that doesn't conflict with anything.
