Of merchant packs, and signs.

I sent out about 65 merchant and sponsor packs last night.  However, last night was one of those nights where SL was being… well, SL.  Even though I set the permissions to copy/mod while they were rezzed (TWICE), they still reverted when picked up to inventory.  I sent out updates- but the sponsor signs are still no mod, so if you want a mod version, just ask me or Lokii and we’ll send you one directly.

 

We do still have some merchant slots open, but fewer than 10.  You can still apply. Please note that sponsor slots are not only long since sold out, there’s a waiting list 3x the number of slots we had. You can add yourself to it if you want to, but basically, there’s a long long line of people wanting a sponsor slot.

I should also mention we didn’t take everyone.  The biggest issues were: stores in violation of the rules, and very new or small stores with not enough inventory in them to feel comfortable letting them in this year.  As always if you want to know if or why (because I know that not every merchant pack is guaranteed to make it to its destination, SL being SL) just ask- I promise, I’ll tell you.  It might be you DID get in and your merchant pack got eaten.  It might be you didn’t and you can ask why.

I SHOULD have a merchant list up to date at some point today/tonight.  I’m working on it.

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.

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!

…eventin’ ain’t easy.

Sorry for the delay, folks.

We had some wacky permissions issues with the signs/standees that took some time to resolve, and then I had to create the SPREADSHEET OF DOOMYDOOM.  (really, it’s a sucky job.)  But.  We are back to being current. Also, we have a sign! That I didn’t have to make(my favorite part!).  Lokii did our event poster (THAAAANK YOOO.) and it looks terrific.

GxG Preliminary Poster

The merchant list is now current.  We got an absolutely insane number of sponsor requests – way more than I’ve ever seen.  I’ve taken the option out of the application because we’re not only full up, we’re bench deep with backups, too.  Thank you to everyone who was so eager to sponsor. Holy cow.

As of this writing the merchant list is current.  I’ve sent group invites and the first merchant pack to everyone.  If you’re looking for it in inventory, it’s an object, and it’s called Gothmas by Gaslight 2013 Merchant Pack 1.  If you’re a sponsor, it’s called Gothmas by Gaslight 2013 Sponsor Pack 1.  (the posters are slightly different. everything else is the same.)

If SL ate your group invite, you can just IM me or Lokii Violet for a new one. SL eats a lot of group invites. It happens. If you have a sim preference, please tell me. Im trying to give everyone *with* a preference the spot they want before I assign everyone else who doesn’t care.

And now, after 24 hours of staring at this spreadsheet, I’m going to go do something *else*.

Yeesh.
