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.

GxG 2014 build, by Kostika

Whoo boy. A whole bunch of stuff to update everyone on.

ok.  First of all there’s this:

1. If you are a merchant in this year’s Gothmas by Gaslight, you need to have your booth at least partially set up by 8pm SLT tonight. I don’t care how much is done, but there needs to be some sign that you’re showing up in there (unless I talked to you previously about it.)  If you aren’t, we are pulling your booth up.  We are *not* going to wait for people to first show up tomorrow morning. We need to know who’s coming and who isn’t. You dont need to be done, but you need to have started.  If we pull your booth, we will not accept you to another Cursed event until next year’s GxG. We aren’t playing around about this- it’s a giant pain in the ass when people stand us up.  We don’t mind if people drop out. We mind when people don’t tell us that’s happened.

2. we have maps.  I will post them here, and they will also be on the merchant page as well. Here’s the thing- they are subject to change. There’s a version number in the lower right corner. The website will always have the most recent maps, but I know these get passed around, so this way you can check to see if yours is accurate. That said, I EXPECT them to change rather drastically overnight. When in doubt, the thing to do is check the merchant list- it has direct teleport SLurls to all event booths.

As always the maps face the same way you do when you land.  I have added a compass rosette to reflect which way the maps are oriented.  If you have trouble with this, use the direct SLurl links provided on the merchant list. Click on them to make them bigger.

3.  We may, or may not be delayed in opening through no fault of our own. Right now LL has an asset server down, which is preventing people from doing their work in a timely manner. Further to that, I personally have a support ticket in to LL regarding a technical problem (their end, not our end) on Sium.  Worst case is we push back a couple hours, but we will not know until LL gets its act together on both problems.

I will have more info as I have…well, more info.  stay tuned gang- the snow hasn’t even started falling yet.

Applications are closed.

Applications are now closed for this year’s Gothmas by Gaslight.  The merchant list is current, and accurate.

Merchants will be allowed to load in starting at some point on December 9 (my guess is later rather than earlier.)

Also this year we will be sending out optional gift vendors, for those merchants who want to offer gift service.  The vendors will allow the buyer to specify another account to deliver their item to.  These are not mandatory by any means.  The script was made custom for us by Nic Sadoul at Unrepentant.

Speaking of custom things made for us by the folks at Unrepentant, we also have a new blogger review copy system, so no one has to send their review copies through the group anymore.  Sonya is so excited about this she’s hopping around like…well a bunny, and I know she always does that but more than usual.  But she can explain all that once we get closer to go-time.

We’ve got 15 days til we open. Let’s roll.

 

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.
