Merchant Applications are closed.

I’ve just closed merchant applications for GxG 2013.  Thank you to everyone who applied. Currently we are sold out and we have 8 stores on our waiting list.  Blogger applications are open until December 10.

Stuff for merchants:

Lokii sent out sample booth shells for sizing, etc. in a group notice yesterday- so make sure you grab those if you haven’t done so already.

Vendors/Gachas will be sent out in group notice no later than the 9th.  Load in officially begins on the 10th (if we’re ready before then we’ll let people in before then.)

Please send Lokii Violet a 512×512 full perm store logo for your booth so she can assign booth spaces.  If you’ve been in our events before we *MIGHT* have your logo but we might not.  Best send to Lokii anyway.  Sponsor logs we obviously have, and I’ve updated the main page to put all of them up.  *points to the left*.

If you need to drop out of the event- that’s fine, but we need you to TELL SOMEONE. Do not just disappear into the ether.  We don’t mind when people drop out. We mind a lot (really, a lot) when people don’t tell us and we have to scramble to fill the space at the last minute when we’re trying to set up our own stores.   Any store not in the process of setup *and who has not talked to us about it* by noon on the 14th of December will lose their event slot. Not kidding, gang. We ain’t playing on this.  Please don’t make us chase you down for info.

Stuff for shoppers:

As soon as Lokii assigns booth spaces and finishes the Sium layout, we’ll post maps to both sims.  Please be patient, this is a fussy process.

Stuff for everyone:

Gothmas by Gaslight 2013 will open at NOON on December 15.  (Midnight openings are a pain in the ass.)

More info as I have it.

Update: Merchant things, sponsor things, event things.

What. Coming up with witty titles isn’t easy.  I’m not a writer, you know.

I got all the booth slots assigned on the merchant list.  If anyone needs their booth switched to the other sim they should probably say something.

I’m still waiting on two blurbs from sponsors, and several sponsors have to pay their sponsor fee.  All sponsor fees are due by November 30.  Anyone not paid up by then will lose their sponsor slot (not their booth slot, their sponsor slot) to the next person on the sponsor waiting list (and to be genuinely honest I’ll be disinclined to let that person sign on as a sponsor again- it’s a pain in the ass to have to keep shuffling things around when this happens.)

We’re still sold out, and currently we have 3 people on the waiting list.  Again, we OFTEN need waiting list folks so if you meant to apply, please do so. Especially during the holidays people can find themselves overwhelmed and needing to drop out of events on short notice.

Not actually about GxG at all, but about Cursed Events in general, I want to thank everyone for the enormous amount of support and votes of confidence we’ve gotten in the past several weeks.  Tangentially related, yesterday I had a conversation with the ever lovely Sian Pearl, owner of MetaTheodora about event organization (which in my mind is actually “Design Project Management”) which after an hour of lively chatter resulted in this:

In 2014 there will be a fourth event added to the Cursed Events schedule – a science fiction event called Futurewave that will take place beginning February 15 and go through February 23rd (at least that’s what it looks like right now.)  Details later, but apps will open on January 1,and blogger apps will open January 15.  More details as I have them but those are the basics.

But first we have to get through Gothmas.  🙂

 

3 slots left (also, an important update for sponsors.)

Ok, update time.

Right now, we have 3 merchant slots left for GxG 2013.  After that, we’ll roll to the waiting list (again, we ALWAYS need waiting list people, so really, do apply even if we’re full.) I’m still gathering info as to who wants to be where.  Amusingly, so many people who said they didn’t care came back and said “whoops, my bad.” after they realized they did.  Which is why I waited to assign people. 🙂  But I’m slowly getting people put on one sim or the other.  Now that the sponsor spaces are all set, it’s easier.

But speaking of sponsors…

I’m working on the sponsor page.  Right now, the formatting is miserable (I know.), but Synjari is going to swoop in like Batgirl and fix that mess (I *loathe* doing webwork, so this is her gig. Thank you, Syn. <3)  But I need some info from some people.  I need blurbs from a bunch of stores, and I need Sangi to check her email.  Jalynne – you don’t need to send a logo.  Lokii has one, but her internet connection went down this morning before it transferred. I’ll get it when her net comes back again.  Got it. never mind.

But if the sponsors who *don’t* have blurbs on the page could email me whatever they want it to say, I’d appreciate it. If you have one and want to change it, send me what you want it changed *to*, and I’ll do that.  Once we get that page done and formatted (I’m hoping in the next 36 hours or so), we’ll add the sponsor thumbnails to the front page of the site (It’s just a pain in the ass to do in pieces so I’d rather do it in one shot and be done with it.)

More soon, as usual.

Because like most things I’m fashionably late (and up late) to add this..

When build time draws closer, if I don’t already have your logo (which I’m a packrat, I have most of the usual freakywinkles from WGF and ACS in my folders) please start sending them to me – or if you have UPDATED it – send me that too. I’d like to get them  all collectively gathered up around December 1st so when the booth setups are done I can just start setting everyone up and get Ye Olde Sim Maps done as well in one swoop. (Or I will make Shorstack hunt you down with a bat cannon.) Send to Lokii Violet.

Carry on, and onwards to stuff! And things!
