Hey everyone.

By now, prob most everyone still about has heard of the recent updating with the LJ TOS, which I wont rehash here.

I dont believe there will be any effect on us directly; to me, its more symbolic of Livejournal's ongoing fadeout and a major step in that direction.

The community will keep on going as usual as its been in recent times.

I've opened and bulit an archival account of my own LJ at DreamWidth and would encourge everyone else to archive their own LJ as they see fit.

I'll be archiving the [livejournal.com profile] dragoncon community over there as well. Since there is already a Dragoncon community under the auspices of longtime community member [livejournal.com profile] greenwitch over at DW, there will be a different name for the community archive and it will be strictly an archive of this community which I will reimport regularly especially around and after con.

Staying open as long as we can, but taking precautions for what I fear is the oncoming day that it cant stay open.

EDIT: Dream Width archive community name is dragoncon_lj_archive. For now since its mainly an archive, not going to worry about look and design over there for right now.

Thanks everyone.

Post anything that does not fit under the other master posts here. Please remember that a moratorium on For Sale Postings is now in effect. Such posts will be yanked from comments. If abuse becomes a problem this master post will be removed.
[identity profile] alladinsane.livejournal.com
Due to the high amount of For Sale posts built up in the mod queue, putting in a Master Post for For Sale posts.

Badge Transfers will be put in a separate Master Post.

The Post Con Control Mode has now gone into effect.

UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, FOR SALE POSTS ARE BANNED AND WILL REMAIN SO DURING THE POST CON PERIOD

Certain D*C Senior and Track Directors have been granted posting preapproval. All know that this is a privilege and not a right and are subject to having posts yanked and losing the privilege same as anyone else.

Certain posts in the mod queue may be allowed thru as conditions warrant. Any posts in the mod queue that belong under the master posts will be automatically rejected.

Post Con Control Mode will remain in effect until traffic returns to normal offseason levels.

More to come later.

Thank you again everyone for a great con and already looking forward to next year!!

Apologies again to all for the slowness on this...real life got me sidetracked and then the Great Hotel Run of Late 2008 took over things in here...

Since the poll got pushed downward in the shuffle and there are many who havent had a chance to vote and/or add commentary to it, the poll will be left open thru the middle of next week to allow those who havent voted to have a chance to do so.

Thanks again all for your patience.

Added links to the Lost and Found and Miscellaneous Master Posts if they rolled off the page...didnt add for Photos or Reviews since they're well up on the page and have to see how the traffic goes and be sure that new master posts wont be needed(highly unlikely)

Have started to trim down the mod queue; if you have a pending entry that belongs under one of the master posts, it will be rejected. Thank yous from tracks and event hosts have been let through along with the occasional one that warrants its own special attention(my which recent one could that be).

Oh yes, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has their D*C photos up

So how's everyone liking the new Post Con Control Mode so far?

Adding another master post for reviews and feedback.

DO NOT REPEAT postings from the first master post. If even just one is discovered, this entire master post and all comments therein will be yanked and no more extra master posts will be made!

The Post Con Control Mode has now gone into effect.

Apologies for the delay. Had major problems with getting access today. Lessons have been learned and improved preparation will be in place for next year.

[livejournal.com profile] photognome has been granted temporary preapproval to help resolve a major situation. He will explain in a future post.

MAPS:

Map of Peachtree Center complex from the official site with Driving Directions, parking options, and a mapout of the habitrail setup

This restaurant guide map was made by [livejournal.com profile] blackfeatherdjr. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lilithschilde for hosting it on her site.

Map unavailable pending updates...will post back when ready

The above map is in PDF format which of course means you'll need Acrobat Reader to see them.

Google Map of Points of interest in or near Dragon*Con

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] clayfoot for putting this Google map together.

Check with the respective authors or their designates for any adds, corrections, or deletions. As you know from the news, you can cross off the now closed Steak and Ale from the dining list.

Miscellany!:

My first mention of the big reminder:

Georgia prohibits all retail alcohol sales on Sunday, including beer and wine! Bars and restaurants can serve on Sunday but they must close down at midnight. If you have Sunday booze plans, get your stuff early and plan accordingly.

And as always my usual sad annual announcement:

Yet again, Wayne Newton will NOT be playing Atlanta D*C Weekend. Sorry.
