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.

check your email; long story, but the sheraton is jacking up their price for this year. you need to get in touch with them to approve the additional charge by the 23d of this month (maybe even the 20th) or you could !lose your reservation!

see the sheraton's FB page for more, and keep an eye out for word from D*C.

Since Dragoncon.org no longer accepts fan photos, is there some better place to post these?

Great con,
  I got sick on the way up there, so the first two days were pretty down until I could fight most of it off.
Art Show was great. Dealer Rooms, too, but they seemed smaller, and a few of the old regulars seemed to be missing. I did get a couple of interesting items.
  Was it me? Or did it seem not as crowded this year?
  Maybe the new arrangement was actually a help.
  I'm definitely out of touch with the current crop of actors, though. I just don't watch much TV these days. I didn't recognise but a handful of the guests.

So I'm going as the Ultimate Daredevil version of Elektra, and I want to bring her tranditional sais. I want to know if I'll run into any problem bringing them??? The ones i bought are a silver steel and can be seen here --> (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002DORU1I/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1).

They are a little heavier than I wanted, but are really dull, no sharp edge and pose no danger that I can see. I'm not sure how to go about giving them a peace bond, as I don't have a sheath for them.

Hi, all!

First time DC'er and longtime LJ'er here! I'm so happy to have found this group-- I really appreciate all the links and I've been devouring the info... I feel like I'm just getting the hang of it all now. (We're veteran Burners, so if we can handle Burning Man, we can handle this, I hope!)

Read more about HOT BREAKFAST!: Delaware's premier acoustic dork-rock power duo, and how to get a free song download! )

See you soon! SO EXCITED!!

Once again my favorite posting of the year in here: taking the annual poll to see where everyone is coming in from... NOTE: As usual for the sake of the poll, Metro Atlanta is defined as anywhere within 50 miles of the downtown core. I know its reached out way past that, but it still makes a nice round number. Maybe I'll change it when it hits 100 miles. ;)

[Poll #2052799]

Will correct if I get the info before Wednesday. Wednesday and after check the comments for corrections.

Thanks all.

Final Community List for 2016 )

Hey everyone...

major apologies this year...two back to back family weddings and assorted family stuff have really slowed me on con prep...and when I was free of family was also free of good net access which didnt help....

I'm going to blow thru most of our pre con standard postings this year over the course of this evening.

First off of course is my annual announcement that Wayne Newton will NOT be playing Atlanta this year during DragonCon weekend...hes currently in residency at Ballys Las Vegas....

EDIT: I have also updated the Pocket Program link.

Daily Dragon at present seems to be farked. Will post meetup update from it as soon as I can.

Thanks everyone.

I'm told that this a company new to DC; anyone know anything abt them?
[identity profile] acciochocolate.livejournal.com
Please note that I did not write this, but I just found it on-line. The opinions, reviews, and directions are provided by the author of the guide, as I only go downtown abt once a year, so I'm hoping the info is accurate. I don't know who wrote it, as there doesn't seem to be a name attached.


Call ahead and check the info w/ the restaurants themselves.
