Updates & Announcements

Looking forward to 2018!

Posted on Wednesday September 07, 2016

We want to thank everyone who took our post-con survey or gave us feedback on this year's con, either at the Dead Duck or in person to a member of the concom. We know that there were an awful lot of changes this year and change can be difficult, so it's really gratifying to know that everyone had such a good time. The truth is, no matter how hard we work, a con is only as good as its attendees. So thank you for bringing your enthusiasm and love for fandom and helping us celebrate our 10 year anniversary!

We're starting to think about 2018 and how we can incorporate your feedback into the next con. The first thing we need to determine is the dates, so if you attended CON.TXT this year or if you would like to attend in 2018, please take a minute to fill out our survey and let us know when you would like CON.TXT 2018 to occur: Link to Survey

Lastly, please keep an eye out for registration to open for CON.TXT 2018 sometime in the fall of 2017!

Post-Con Recovery

Posted on Tuesday August 02, 2016

We hope everyone is surviving the post-con comedown! Don't forget to take our Exit Poll, so we have lots of feedback for 2018. If you have taken the poll and requested a response to something, please give us a week to decompress but we will get back to you.

We have a couple of items that ended up in Lost and Found. You can see them here. Let us know if they belong to you!

Remember to link to your con reports here. Or use the hashtags "con.txt" or "con.txt 2016" on Tumblr and #contxt2016 on Twitter.

Con Reports! And charity total!

Posted on Monday August 01, 2016

If you've posted a con report or put together resources from a panel from CON.TXT, we'd love a comment here linking us to it!

Note: you may also want to check for links on the companion Livejournal post!

There are also two unofficial communities which have been set up for you all to talk amongst yourselves: [community profile] contxt_unofficial is the Dreamwidth community and [livejournal.com profile] contxt_unoffici is the Livejournal community. Additionally, the Dreamwidth community [community profile] contxt_lounge which was set up in 2012 is still available. These communities are not maintained by CON.TXT, but we appreciate their presence!

You may also be interested in the #contxt2016 Twitter hashtag or the #con.txt Tumblr hashtag (Tumblr allows punctuation!). We may reblog Tumblr posts about the con on our official CON.TXT Tumblr, so let us know if you particularly do or do not want us reblogging you!


Between what Beth collected through the raffle (Thank you for all your hard work, Beth!), the swap table, the items sold for charity at the orphans table, and the piggy banks at the Registration and Orphans tables, we collected a total of $1210.04 to donate to Planned Parenthood!

Thank you all for your generosity!

CON.TXT is winding down

Posted on Sunday July 31, 2016

Thank you for joining us at CON.TXT 2016! We hope you had a wonderful time.

We would appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to fill out our Exit Poll, so we can use your feedback to make CON.TXT 2018 our best con yet.

Thursday evening pre-registration party!

Posted on Wednesday July 27, 2016

If you're arriving at the con hotel on Thursday night, you can check in and pick up your badge and program between 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm in the hotel lobby. We'll be located in the breakfast/reception area to the right of the front door. Once you've picked up your packets, you can hang out, do some arts and crafts, or play CON.TXT Bingo with us.

The forecast for this weekend has been revised down a little and we are expecting highs of 88-85 degrees, but there will also likely be scattered thundershowers so you might want to pack an umbrella.

See you soon!
