…and on to new year. (again.)

Gothmas – Berry Nymph, by Aarya Phantomhive

 

Only a few days left in 2014 (thank goodness -I personally will be more than happy to see the end of it.) But Gothmas by Gaslight is still humming along through January 3.    Now that the press for time in RL has started to ease up a bit, people are filtering back upstairs to enjoy the snow, music and shopping at GxG.  The submissions to our Flickr pool have been lovely, and we’ve all been enjoying the images that have come to us.

It’s been pretty low key as it generally is in December, though for some reason on Xmas eve the sim sort of fell over and scripts went wonky for several hours. Gremlins, I suppose.  But it seems to have righted itself and I see people wandering around in their winter finery each time I go upstairs. I still have to do my shopping rounds too!  Obviously, this is our last event of 2014, and we’d definitely like to thank all the people that come back (merchants, bloggers and shoppers) over and over to tell us to keep doing whatever it is we’ve managed to concoct.

Our next event is the January round of A Tattered Page , which is a combination of an event, a book club, and a mad scientist’s experiment all in the same package. That opens on January 7 (yeah we know, it’s not much time.) But just as importantly, applications for Futurewave will open on January 1st (probably in the evening.) Given what happened last year, we expect it to sell out *very, very fast*.

But we still have to get through the rest of this year before we can get to that. So come on up and enjoy the winter in the darkness.  The lights cast excellent shadows and the shopping is great.

Alisa Perne guest DJs at the Gothika Mobile Unit today!

Gothmas Awakens The Bride, by GiaNikai Juliesse

Today! (That’s December 23) from 4-6PM Pacific Time (SLT) Alisa Perne will be guest DJing at the Gothika Mobile Unit.  She usually DJ’s over at Club Zero, but as happens she lives on Cursed full time(much to our collective delight), so she decided to come on back to the mobile unit to have some fun for a couple hours. Alisa’s a pretty terrific person and it’s going to be a ton of fun (and I probably should decorate her house for gothmas… um. oops. Yeah. I need to get to that…) but come on up and get some gloomy licks in before the madness begins tomorrow in earnest.

Here’s the SLurl

Gifts for Gothmas!

Our First Gothmas Together

Our First Gothmas Together by Alisa Perne

If you see something you like when visiting Gothmas by Gaslight, you might also be able to gift it to your friends and family. We had new gifting-enabled vendors available for those merchants who wanted to use such. The vendors are marked with gifting option words and if in doubt, you can simply edit-check the contents to see if the script has gifting option mentioned in its name.

The gifting works so that you pay the vendor normally and then a special menu with the gifting option will pop up. You will need to know the UUID of the person you want to send the gift to and insert it so the script knows who the recipient is. Since we do not use networked vendors and LSL operates on UUIDs, not names, this was the only way to make it work.

If you use a viewer that has the old style profiles in use (like Firestorm), you can see the UUID on top of the profile, right under the avatar’s name. If you use the official viewer or web profiles, things get trickier. Click here for the information on how to find the UUID in that case. 

Come over to enjoy the snow and silence, to share the gifts of the darkest of seasons!

We are standing by waiting on technical difficulties.

As I mentioned over the weekend, we have a technical problem on Sium.  I filed a ticket about it on Saturday.  We are waiting for a fix, and we *cannot* open the sim without it as we cannot control any of the parcel land controls. As soon as it is fixed, we will open GxG 2014 within 15 minutes. Please stand by- as soon as we can open, we will. we REALLY will.

 

 

We have a shoppers group!

cursedshoppers1

Over the past couple of years MANY people have asked us for a group for shoppers and gacha traders.  (many. )  The reason we never did it was because there were very poor group management controls available to us, and none of us has the time or patience to babysit an open group.  However, the newest release of Firestorm contains the LONG awaited group ban function.  As promised, as soon as it dropped, I installed it and created a group. It’s called Cursed Shoppers, and will cover all our events in order to save group space. The group is open and free to join.  The group key is here:  fe9d4c5b-4fa9-a1df-dd7e-adb54a334366 .  It will take some time to populate, but merchants are welcome to join and send out demos if they like, or whatever else they’ve got.  Gacha trading is welcome and you can ask questions about our events there too if you want to.  Have at, people.
