CON.TXT 2020 starts tonight!
CON.TXT 2020 starts tonight at 8PM EDT with informal Zoom hangs and Small Fandom Speed Dating! Some reminders:
Are you registered on Conline? If not, you have until midnight tonight (EDT) to do so! But please don't wait that long, because ur friendly neighborhood concom would prefer not to send out emails at 1am. Also, you'll also miss out on Friday night hangs!
To join, sign up here and join CON.TXT here (click Join in upper right) Joining CON.TXT is not the same thing as being registered for CON.TXT 2020 specifically - that will happen once a concom member manually processes your registration.
Discord server invites went out last night to everyone registered on Conline, and they will continue to go out as part of the confirmation email to all new registrations as they are processed.
If you didn't receive your invite, check your Conline account to check or edit the email you registered with (also check your spam). You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org (or email@example.com if you're writing from a Yahoo or AOL email address).
You don't have to join the Discord server if you don't want to! All activities can be accessed from the schedule page on Conline. But if you'd like to chat with fellow attendees, we encourage it!
Are your Conline and Discord badge names set the way you want? On Conline, click your username on the right side of the Conline menu bar and go to Account to change your display name (or email!)! On Discord, right click on any of your messages and select "Change nickname."
Is your Zoom name set the way you want? If you're concerned about the separation of your wallet name and fannish identity, please set your Zoom display name on the Zoom website or through the Zoom app before clicking the link to join any of the CON.TXT panel tracks. If you go directly to the Zoom meeting, you won't be able to change your display name until after you join. Zoom sometimes defaults to your original account name even if you set it differently, so please check your display name immediately on joining a Zoom meeting just in case!
Yay, see you tonight!
