Preliminary Merchant List Is Up.

Hi creepypeople!

The first iteration of this year’s merchant list is up. It is not final.

As a reminder, booth fees are due by midnight April 30.  We have a VERY deep waiting list this year, so if you blow this deadline there is an excellent chance your booth will be gone by morning. As of this writing there are 2 sponsors and 8 merchants not yet paid up.  I can assure you- we have the wait list to fill ALL of those slots, so if you want to keep yours, make sure you pay your booth fee to WorldGothDayOfficial Resident ONLY (not. me.) by April 30.

All sponsor slots are GONE.

Just a note- all sponsor slots for WGF 2014 are gone, across all three sims. We have a small number of merchant slots left.  Please check our merchant list for the current status of applications and slots available.

Blogger applications are still open too. 🙂

Also, there’s been quite a few updates to the list of bands for whom we (as in the Org team, working through Gothika) has licenses to produce merchandise for.  We are still trying to reach about 20 bands, but as I’ve said many times now, a lot of people are on tour. We’re doing our best to get ahold of everyone.

Applications are CURRENT ( for the moment.)

I just plowed through the remaining applications. Check your email. We did not take every application we received, but anyone I had outstanding to contact, I did contact.

If SL ate your group invite, just ping me and I’ll re-send one.

I have not updated the merchant list yet. I will do that after I return home tonight.

Here’s where we stand:

ALL sponsor slots on Cursed are SOLD OUT.

ALL sponsor slots on Sium are SOLD OUT.

I have 2 sponsor slots remaining on Port Seraphine (please don’t ask for them if you’re selling skins- the spots are useless to you as it’s a G rated sim.)

There are 3 merchant slots on Cursed- they are being held for people who a) sell skins. or b) sell adult items. or c) are people we hold Cursed slots for (long standing WGF/Cursed events gothshops.)  But there are only three. Seriously.  I promise.

There are 7 merchant slots left on Sium.

There are about 15ish (I haven’t fully counted) slots left on Port Seraphine, give or take.

If you don’t have a preference and aren’t selling skins, we’ll probably put you on PS because we have the most room there.  I will update the merchant list to reflect this later this evening.

application/acceptance update.

As of now:

All sponsor slots on Cursed are sold out.

All sponsor slots on Sium are sold out.

There are a limited number of sponsor slots left on Port Seraphine.

I have 12 applications that need things.  11 of them need decisions, and 1 needs processing.

There are fewer than 5 open merchant slots on Cursed. There’s about 8 on Sium.  I’m not sure how many are left on Port Seraphine yet.

more info as I have it.

 

Current status on acceptances.

As of right now, approximately 50 acceptance emails have gone out.  I have processed all applications in the queue, and I have 25 applications left to work through for acceptance or not.

Some important info: All sponsor slots on Cursed are GONE.  Absolutely GONE.

All sponsor slots on Sium are also gone- the question at this point is who is getting the last one that even “technically” exists.  We had WAY more people than we had room for ask for sponsor slots on Cursed. I even moved one of my own stores to Sium to try to accommodate an additional request.  There is *technically* a slot, but it is taken- I just don’t know who HAS it yet. I’m waiting to hear back from someone who asked for a Cursed slot early on, but didn’t get it, to see if they want to jump sims. If they want it, it’s theirs first.  If not, it will go to someone else.

The point of that ramble is that if you’re applying from this point on for a sponsor slot, the ONLY sim we have available for it is Port Seraphine. Just be aware of that when you apply.

As I said, I have 25 spreadsheet entries to clear.  I do not know if all 25 applications will be approved yet.  I will be working more on this tonight and should be current at some point tomorrow either way.

We have room for 100 booths total for this year’s WGF (35 on Cursed, 30 on Sium, and 35 on Port Seraphine) so regardless, we do still have available slots, though depending on which sim it is, they may be a little limited.

one way or another, posters and standees are going out tomorrow night at the *absolute* latest.

Acceptance emails have begun to go out.

I’ve sent out the first 30 acceptance emails.  I am still waiting on signs/standees but Lokii assures me she is working on it and I should have them within 24 hours. The current holdup is a couple of sponsorship questions that need answering. I will start up again as soon as I have the answers I need.  Shouldn’t take long.

As of now we have about 30 spaces remaining (for all three sims put together.)  The vast majority of those are on Sium and Port Seraphine. Cursed has about three merchant slots remaining(this includes everyone who asked to be on Cursed, not just the ones who have gotten their emails already).  Sponsor slots are *definitely* sold out on Cursed (GONE.).  I will know what the sponsor status is for Sium shortly. There are still sponsor slots available on Port Seraphine.

More info as I have it.

All SPONSOR poster packs have been sent out, inworld.

*points to the title of the post*

I’ve just sent out all the sponsor poster packs.  They are in a FOLDER (not an object)  called World Goth Fair 2013 SPONSOR poster pack.  (we all have enough boxes.)

If you didn’t get yours please tell me asap and I will re-send it to you.

I will be sending out merchant packs next. Please be patient.  The merchant packs require I either send an email to each person (which I’m frankly inclined to do, I hate notecards.) in addition to the pack so everyone has their invoice.  But I don’t have everyone’s email (it wasn’t required) so some MUST go out inworld.  This will take me some time.

The standees, by the way are MESH, and only 3LI.  🙂

Ok, back to work.
