Found out about #FrogCon2023 from a picrew of all places!
Frog Con is an #online convention happening from Oct 13-23 2023 with all profits going towards supporting artists and to the Amphibian Survival Alliance!
i have a potentially controversial question...
when I got my #vaccine I was not directed to get another #vaccination card for #covid19 and they did not give me any proof of vaccination except for CVS's online receipt. in the case that I would want to go to a #furry #convention, how are we verifying that people are either testing negative or vaccinated now? or are we just fucked in regards to tracking? :ms_grimace:

2nd Annual Metaverse Summit has been added to the calendar! 🗓️
Coming up on October 10, 2023 in Los Angeles, CA USA 🏙️: https://www.eventsforgamers.com/event/2nd-annual-metaverse-summit/
A couple times a year I go to hotels with or without other people. I have been taking a few spirits and soda to drink on the evening to share. Slowly I have been figuring out what exactly a portable bar would look like for me.
Finding a pre-made might have been nice but I really didn't find something that would cover it well. I needed to handle two bottles (unknown size), four glasses, at least one shot glass.. hard cases look nice but soft cases have a little more flexibility.
Enter a bag I got over a year ago that I just didn't know what to do with. It had been sitting in our storage room since I got it. It really didn't work for a laptop of the gear I usually run with, and if I didn't get it for free, I would never have gotten it.
It fit a few bottles nice, but I also needed space for glasses too. Well a year after I got the first, I got a second bag from the same line that actually could be mounted to the side. It was a perfect size for three pint glasses. I am sourcing a second so I can put it on the other side too. All in all, its a good start!
I'm honestly sad that I can't go, just because I'd love to be at a #FurryCon where #furries control the entire space and not just some section of the hotel convention center across from some confused wedding or business convention...
(That, and if you want to experiment with #ageplay, a full-immersion ageplay oriented convention would be the space to do it)

It’s time for Rainbow Space Magic again! The completely free online convention will be this weekend, September 30th and October 1st. I’ll be on a panel and doing a reading from To Love the Dragon King (though I’m not sure what yet…really should figure that out!) on Saturday. Come join us!
Stoked to be moderating a #panel at this year's #CanCon on #Gentrification #Climate and #Infrastructure - @annaleen and @premeesaurus be prepared for me to stalk you a lot. I don't think Mark Robinson has a Masto account, so I'll have to search him up the old fashioned way.

#Convention - The act of coming together; the state of being together; union; coalition.
Two days into the annual Union of British Columbia Municipalities convention and so far I’ve heard addresses from Minister of Health Adrien Dix, Minister of Municipal Affairs Anne Kang and Minister of Housing Ravi Kahlon. Also connected with a bunch of great elected officials from all over the province of BC. 🇨🇦

Für mich geht es nun auch wieder nach Hause. War wieder einmal eine richtig schöne @gamesvention, bei denen ich viele alte und neue Bekannte getroffen habe.
Con-typisch war leider für alles zu wenig Zeit, aber dann halt nächstes Jahr. 😊
Hat mich besonders gefreut, @janedoesstories mal persönlich getroffen zu haben. 🥳
Last set this evening by SerenityDnB!
NO HEADSET REQUIRED! Desktop mode and mobile options.
Notes from a recent board game #convention:
We played 42 game sessions, including some that we already knew: there were 33 new-to-us games. Some of my favorites follow.
Uwe Rosenberg's ATIWA requires you to manage linked populations of families, fruit bats, goats, tree, and wild animals. It reminded me of his most famous game, AGRICOLA, but with less desperation: it's much easier to feed your families at the end of each round, and the cost of failure is either gold or points, not starvation tokens.
Made it to the hotel room, finally had a chance to wash off the travel grime.
Could be the sleep deprivation, but this is the wildest shower setup I've seen in awhile. I feel like I need 2-4 weeks of training to get approved to take the exam for the certification required to use these controls.
Would love to know the story here...
🧵Whats this?! It's time for @CozyConOnline and I've got sweet offerings up for grabs including stream commissions, swag and more.
Will update thread with info ASAP. I hope you'll join in for a fun online event, and stay Cozy~

Social conservatives are pushing to check Poilievre’s power
Daher wollte ich dieses Jahr beobachten und sehen, ob es sich wieder lohnt.
Bisher sieht es nicht so aus, abwarten...

Another con in the books! Southern Fried Gaming Expo was awesome. It was great being a guest at a convention for the first time in 4 years, and I tabled for the first time ever. Thanks to @wackomedia, @EienAi and @Tekkaman_Blade for making it extra special.
Our panel "No Coding? No Problem! How to Make a Great Game Anyway" went well, we had some great conversations, and we got to show off our #VR game!

Made it home safely from #AnthroWeekendUtah! We had an absolute blast, it was so much fun suiting with friends, wandering the con, and dancing. Even managed to survive the July heat!
Also, I have a completed #commission to share! This was done by my friend Vex (@terminalvex on Instagram). They're a fantastic artist and I've wanted to commission them for a long time, and the finished result is so much better than I could have hoped for.
Belated intro. 1st computer: C64. Lover of most things geeky nerdy. Oldest memory involves #starwars , first comic was #gijoe or #transformers, creatively express myself via: #writing #ttrpg stuff & #fanfic , #cosplay maker & #convention volunteer. Former #gymrat that likes #nerf wars as cardio. Lucky enough to #travel to all 7 continents, aware enough over the decades that their is not enough #socialjustice & #economicjustice in the world, & it's gonna involve Good & Necessary Trouble to fix it
#BayCon 2023 is off to a fun start! Met lots of interesting people on Day 1. Looking forward to Day 2.

Hey y'all, TCAF is this weekend and I wanted to share some very good news: The Dead City books are here and they look GREAT!
The book is 194 pages, at 8.5"x11"
We'll be debuting the omnibus for Dead City this weekend, so come by and be the first to grab a copy! Michelle and I will be ready to sign them for you. We're also bringing everything else from https://topazcomics.com/shop/
Last summer, the Nashville city council rejected a proposal to bid to host the 2024 RNC convention (they were apparently finalists alongside Milwaukee). They said that they didn't want to deal with the security problems it could bring. While this may at first appear to be a 'heckler's veto', the RNC has only itself to blame for the fear that their convention would create mayhem:
1. Their leadership encourages violent assaults against protesters, even to the point where Rick Perry is promising to pardon a convicted murderer.
2. They continue to minimize and justify the crimes committed on Jan 6 as people fought their way into the capitol.
3. They have aligned themselves with street-fighting gangs like the Proud Boys.
I would not invite these people to my town. I feel sorry for Milwaukee and Wisconsin.
Topaz Comics (Michelle Parker & Jey Pawlik) will be at TCAF @ booth 2083 on April 29-30th! We'll be debuting the complete Dead City omnibus book + zines, stickers and prints!
The Disappeared: #IndigenousPeoples & the International Crime of Enforced Disappearance. “Canada’s pattern of failure to ensure effective & timely remedies for #disappearances of Indigenous persons may amount to acquiescence in int'l crimes of #EnforcedDisappearance. #Canada’s int'l law obligations require urgent steps...[including] accession to...the Int'l #Convention [on]...

From #MinesActionCanada. “One year later, our comments on #Russia's illegal invasion of #Ukraine are just as relevant… #ClusterMunition strikes have killed & injured hundreds. The bombing & shelling of cities & towns has forced millions to flee, killed & maimed civilians, & decimated civilian infrastructure.
We reiterate our call for all parties to join the #Convention on #ClusterMunitions & for #Russia to cease the use of #landmines & accede to the #OttawaTreaty...” https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=pfbid02xfMcFv5RZAeEpYDB9KRsWyj48LjnB5fbjAUd5TfFzy8ET9oChS99mLgt8L1DmiFbl&id=45723944789&mibextid=qC1gEa

Die Burg Hoheneck ist ein sehr schönes Bauwerk mit einem Innenhof der nur für die Gäste der Burg zur Verfügung steht. Es gibt einen Fußweg um die Burg herum, den sollte man wenigstens einmal begangen haben um zu erfassen in welchem großartigen Bauwerk man sich aufhält. easy-con.org/convention/convention/Woelkchen_23 #WölkchenCon23 #WohlfühlCon #nexus #rpgcon #pnpcon #convention #rpgde #pnp #pnpde

For my #LGBTQAI friends - the #DemocraticParty treats #RuralDemocrats similar to the way they treat us - because #RuralIssues won't win over #Moderates and #Centrists any more than #TransRights or #MarriageEquality would.
Norwescon (https://www.norwescon.org) is now on Mastodon!
We are the Pacific Northwest’s premier #ScienceFiction and #fantasy #convention, and one of the largest entirely #volunteer-operated regional cons in the US. While maintaining a primarily literary focus, we are large enough to provide a venue for many of the other aspects of science fiction and fantasy and the interests of its fans such as #comics, #costuming, #art, #gaming, #science, #technology and much, much more.
