Recommended Posts

Argh! I'll be on TDY during that time period. The one time I'm actually living on the east coast in my career and they send me on TDYs during all the important conventions. They must know....

Rats! Oh well, just know I would love to be there to meet all you awesome people, hopefully next year. :-/

I got the email from the MAG hotel liaison staff.  Currently the Gaylord OCR block consists of rooms reserved by:

Me
Bahamut (two rooms)
Darangen
OA
Shaggy
VinnyMac
and someone by the RL name of Joshua Maltby whose handle here I'm unsure of.

If you successfully reserved a room at the Gaylord, wanted your room to be in the OCR block (i.e. you room will be on the same floor and in the same stretch of hallway as the rest of us), and your name isn't in this list, please contact me immediately with the first and last name of whoever reserved your room, as well as the reservation's confirmation number in Gaylord's system.

But my name's not on the list

Then be sure to contact me via PM immediately with the name of the person who reserved your room, which I believe might be Jarel Jones, and the reservation's confirmation number, which he can retrieve and PM to himself.

Hey everyone. Figured I'd get this discussion rolling now.

So during Magfest I know that everyone likes to coordinate when we go out and get food, when we're gonna hit concerts, and other general hanging out. In the past we've used GroupMe, a mobile messaging app, to coordinate. Other options are Hangouts and Facebook Messenger. I personally would ask that nobody include me in group MMS and SMS texting (it costs me money on my phone if you're not an iPhone user).

The "OverClocked ReMix" group still exists on GroupMe, but I'd like to propose we make a couple of chatrooms for coordinating. One for food meetups ("anyone getting lunch? where are you guys going? what time?"), one for concerts and panels, and one for general hangout/magchat stuff. What do you guys think?

I've renamed the OCR group to OC ReMix @ MAGFest 2016

sounds like a great idea. i've never used groupme before but i'm sure it's simple to use. it appears to be an organized and direct way to get information out quickly and accurately amidst the MAG chaos

 

ok i don't know how to use it lol i installed it and search for it but it doesn't show up. does it only show up when it's being used? so like not for another month?

GroupMe FTW. So in order to join a group, I believe you have to either have a direct link to it or be invited. Not sure if you can just straight up search for groups.

Fun fact: Groupme was originally built at a hackathon using the company I work for's API :D good shit.

Using GroupMe as usual with a few chatrooms sounds like the plan to go with to me.
