Delayed Opening on Cosplay Event Signups

Postby Faceman » Thu Jan 31, 2013 10:21 pm

Hey everyone,

We're working on a brand new signup system for all of the Cosplay Events (Cosplay Games, Masquerade, Hall Cosplay Contest). The signups were supposed to go live tonight on Feb 1st at midnight. However, we're still having some issues and want to get as many kinks ironed out before it goes live.

At this point, we're planning on signups for all Cosplay Events go to live at midnight on Monday, Feb 4th (that's midnight in the wee morning hours of 2/4).

We appreciate your understanding and patience. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them.

I got a question about the Masquerade application. Where is the application usually go live on the homepage? Is it at the Masquerade section, on the front news or what?

The URL isn't ready to be published yet. Once it is, we'll link to it from the main navigation menu, the Cosplay Section, and announcements on the front page news and forums. Don't worry, you'll be able to find it.

Yep, we look good. It'll be going live in about 30 minutes.

The side that you guys see is all ready and set. However, the administrative side (that staff uses) is still in the works. All the data's being saved properly and stuff. But Cosplay Staff won't be able to directly see it just yet. That'll be in the next week or two as I get to it. I just wanted to let you all know to establish realistic expectations.

Looks like it's up and working. You can apply for all of AB's cosplay events here, from Chess to Masquerade to Hall Cosplay to the Dating Games and everything else in between.

If anyone has any issues with the new system, please let us know ASAP!
