Friending meme

Hello ConFab people!

I heard that the Tumblr corporate overlords are up to shenanigans (not the good kind) and that several folks are coming to DW as an alternative.

Seeing so much activity on DW over the past few days made me think of my fannish friends from ConFab and I began wondering if you were thinking of using DW, too. If so, please join in this post to connect with other ConFab attendees. Past, present, and future attendees are welcome!

Simply cut & paste the form in the text box below into a new comment to this post, add/remove whatever you'd like. Then scan through other replies and see who you recognize (or perhaps meet someone entirely new!). :)



FYI - I've copied some of this meme format from a very active one that's going on over here on snickfic's journal, if you're looking to expand your DW reading list (think of LJ's "flist") you may want to check it out!
For those of you new to DW, or maybe you haven't used it in a while, here's another post full of useful info for people migrating from Tumblr.

Cheers!

CONfab 2018 Programming Submissions Are Open!!

Submissions for programming for our second annual CONfabulation are officially open! They will stay open for a little over a month (June 1st through July 15th). Submit your ideas for the programming you want to see at the con. We can't wait to hear them! If you need help fleshing out ideas or want to find other fans to be part of your panel or group discussion, or help run your workshop, head on over to our brainstorming post! You don't need a Dreamwidth account to comment.

Our submission form can be found here. You can submit a maximum of four topics in total (multi-session or multi-hour workshops on the same topic count as one submission)! You and up to 3 other fans can be on a panel together (this includes a moderator, as panels cap out at 4 panelists), and if you would like CONfab to help you find a moderator, let us know on the form! We'd be happy to help.

If you're wondering if you have to be registered to submit programming, the answer is no. If you haven't had time to purchase your ticket, don't worry, you can still fill out the submission form.

You can find a list of all the programming that has been submitted here. We will try to keep this list updated daily. If your submission has not appeared on this list and you haven't received a confirmation email within 48 hours of submitting, please contact us.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment on this post, or email the Programming team at programming@confabcon.com.

CONfab 2018 Brainstorming Post for Programming Submissions!

Hello fellow fanpersons, your Programming Team here with some announcements!

Programming submission time is here! We will be running submissions starting on Friday, June 1st and closing on Sunday, July 15th. We will be accepting submissions for any of our three tracks of programming: one track of panels, one of group discussions, and one of workshops. After the submission period ends, programming will be voted on and chosen by you, the attendees.

Here's a handy guide to the types of programming we have to get you started:
  • Panels — Programming about a topic that applies to multiple fandoms (AUs, tropes, kink, horror TV, the representation of women in canon, etc.) or a more general fandom universe that has multiple smaller fandoms that fall under its umbrella (Comics, Sports RPF, Video Games, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The CW's DC verse, etc.). Panels run for one hour, and can have up to 4 panelists, including a moderator, whose job is to keep discussion moving, and ensure that the panel stays within established time limits. If you don't want to mod your own panel, we can find someone to help you.
  • Group Discussions — Programming about a single fandom (Yuri on Ice, Check Please!, Critical Role, Overwatch, Stranger Things, D&D, etc.), or a niche topic within fandom. Group Discussions can be run by one person, but can have up to 2 panelists. They run for one hour and are in a round table format.
  • Workshops — Programming where attendees get a chance to learn something new or hone their skills. Workshop topics could include things like live beta reading, art tips and tricks, or making fannish plushies. If you submit a proposal for a workshop, you must be willing to run it. Workshop sessions run for one hour, but you may offer more than one session of your workshop across multiple days, or request a single day session of longer than one hour (in one hour blocks, only).


We look forward to hearing your amazing ideas for programming! Help make CONfab an awesome experience! We will be accepting submissions for all types of programming from everyone, whether you have registered for the con yet or not. This is your chance to get the programming you want by submitting your ideas. What are you excited about? Share it with the group!

Comment on this post with your programming ideas and questions. Find friends and strangers to help you out, and get ready to submit your proposals starting on June 1st! A new post will go up with submission instructions and a link to the submission form on Friday, June 1st.

The comments on this post will be open throughout the submission period, so feel free to use it as a resource and a sounding board for new ideas that you want a second opinion on before submitting. We can't wait to see what you come up with.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment on this post, or email the Programming team at programming@confabcon.com.

Do you want to build a Con Com?

Hi everyone! CONfabulation is looking for a few volunteers to join our team! If you're enthusiastic about fan cons in general, or this fan con specifically, we'd love to have you. We have all of the details of each position posted on our website, here, but here's what we're looking for:

Social Media Coordinator: In order to effectively run a con, we need to have an active and lively social media presence, and we need your help to do that. If you enjoy spending your time on social media and want to help us get the word out about the con and any upcoming announcements, please apply!

Special Events Coordinator: We're looking for someone to work on our special events. You get to plan the Saturday Night Dance, Meet & Greet, Badfic Idol, and more. And yes, you get to choose the prize the winner with the "best" badfic will receive. :D If you like event planning and are cool with working with our volunteers to execute those events, send us your details!

Registration Coordinator: If organization and keeping track of deadlines is your thing, please consider applying for registration. You'd be tracking incoming registrations and payments and answering any questions that people might have about registering for CONfab. If you love keeping track of data in spreadsheets as much as I do (yes, I am a nerd :D), this is totally the position for you!

If any of these sound like something you'd be interested in doing, please send an email to dcoropin@confabcon.com. If you want to help, but aren't sure these positions are for you, send us an email anyway, and we can chat. If you want to volunteer on the ground at the con, stay tuned, because we'll have more info this summer.

We would love for you to join our all-volunteer team to help make this con in our new home of Chicago as awesome as cons past have been, and we can't wait to see you all in October! <3
