CON.TXT 2020 is three weeks away!
Here are some technical details on how it's going to work.
First, you will need to create an account on Conline, a new online convention platform. Conline is where the schedule, vidshows, and links to panels will live. After creating your account, you will need to join CON.TXT on Conline even if you're already registered for the con. This is a totally new platform and there's no automatic transfer of your registration.
If you are not registered for the con and would like to register, follow the steps in this post as well!
Please create your Conline account at least a few days before the con and ideally sooner.
To create a Conline account and join CON.TXT:
- Go to https://conline.club/login/ and click on the social network of your choice. Yes, you must connect a Google, Twitter, or Facebook account to use Conline.
- Go to https://contxt.conline.club/ and click the "Join" link on the top right.
Please make sure to enter your CON.TXT badge name so everyone knows what to call you, and confirm your email address so we know where to send your Discord invite!
That's it! You're done!
Conline is still in development, so please let us know if you run into any issues and we'll help you troubleshoot. 🙂
Other stuff you'll need
CON.TXT will be centralized around a new Discord server. Invitations will go out in the week prior to the con. Discord has a browser version, but you may want to install the app ahead of time.
Panel discussions will be held via Zoom meetings. You may want to install the Zoom app ahead of time as well, but again this is not necessary. We will use Jitsi Meet as a backup option in case Zoom collapses on the day of the con.
That's it for now! Stay tuned for other developments!
