I've got a new haircut, a new driver's license, and half an apple pie to eat a la mode. Let's do this thing. Attending registration for Vividcon 2016 is open!

Final Reminder!

A reminder from katie_m:

Registration for Vividcon 2016 begins tomorrow at 12 PM Eastern Standard Time (
Time Zone Converter). A list of things to know, because we all like lists:

1) This is only for attending registrations. Supporting registrations will open later.

2) Our website manager Lydia has set up this year's system such that it will automatically determine whether the con is full or not. (Thank you, Lydia!) But what does this mean to me, I hear you ask? It means that the two-step process that is familiar to everyone who's been through this before is no longer necessary. If the site allows you to register, you can pay immediately without waiting for my confirmation that you're in. You will also have the option to say that you want to pay later, whether electronically or by check, in which case the usual three-week deadline applies.

2a) I have just realized I need to rewrite my confirmation email template. Better now than 11:45 AM!

3) I will be at my computer actively inputting and responding to registrations tomorrow as soon as registration opens. If things go as they usually do, I'll be at the computer through the first rush and will then check intermittently throughout the day, so you should hear back from me pretty promptly. If you don't register in the first rush, I can't promise to be as prompt, because I have a job and such (boo) (wait no) (yay). If you haven't heard back from me within a couple of days, please do ping me at

4) I will always send an email confirming any payment we receive. If you don't get a confirmation of a payment, again, please contact me! That's what I'm here for.

Yay Vividcon!

Artist: Bryan Adams
Warnings: spoilers for 2x01 and 2x02; otherwise none

This year is an important anniversary for CON.TXT! We're now 10 years old and have had 5 cons. We're looking forward to our 6th, but we're feeling a little nostalgic...

*Flashback fade*

When the first CON.TXT was held in 2006, YouTube was a year old, Twitter was only a few months old, and Tumblr and the AO3 didn't even exist yet! We were impatiently awaiting the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and the first MCU movie (Iron Man) was still two years away. Fandom was primarily on LiveJournal and, and the largest fandoms were Harry Potter, Stargate: Atlantis, and Bandom.

Our fandoms and online hangouts may have changed in the 10 years since the first CON.TXT, but our goal is the same--to bring you the best possible con!

Over the next few months as we look forward to this year’s con, we’d like to invite you to talk about CON.TXT, reminisce, and celebrate with our community! Let's begin by talking about what we're most known for as a con: our fantastic panels!

What was the most interesting panel that you attended at CON.TXT? We want to hear your memories of great panels! (Panel suggestions open next week!)

Hotel reservations are now open!

  Vidders! If you wish to make a brand new vid to premiere at this year's Vividcon Club Vivid, here is where you sign up!
Club Vivid vids are to be submitted by:

  Friday, April 29th!! (any timezone - if it's still April 29th where you are, you can still submit)

You have two months but that is going to fly by so start now!
All club vivid premieres must have their song approved before being submitted - either for appropriateness for the dance party or to see if anyone else wanted the same song. Song choice is on a first come first served basis.

Remember, we also have a pre-approved song list this year so if you want to choose something from that you can. You can listen to this year's playlist here:
To sign up for a song please fill out this google form. You can submit multiple requests if you wish.

Only new vids will be accepted for premieres, of course, but closer to the event we will have a suggestions page for people to recommend older vids for us to show at the party.

What is Club Vivid anyway?
It's the best party of the year, that's what. Those of you who are new to vvc and new to club vivid, the idea is pretty simple - people make vids to danceable music and we dance to these vids and a bunch of fan favourites at the con and it's awesome fun. It's a VJ'd show and we set aside around 2 and 1/3 hours of vid time to brand new vids by vidders.

Anyone can submit vids to be shown and they will be selected according to the following priorities:
  1. attending vidders first choice vid (or VJ choice if no preference)
  2. a small selection of the VJ's preferred not-yet-chosen vids, as required for balance of music or fandoms. These are selected from any as yet unchosen premieres.
  3. supporting members first choice vid
  4. everyone else's 1st choice submissions
  5. attending members 2nd choice followed by supporting, then non-member etc until all vids are chosen or there's no time left.
We often get song requests that are harder to dance to but still fun and we withold the right to, should they be hard to position in the show, give the vidder the option of moving their vid to the Premieres show which can often be a better venue for some vids. Vidders will be contacted ahead of time and asked if they are ok doing that.

My general advice for song choice is:
  1. 3 to 5 minute vids are ideal length for club vivid vids but honestly any length is possible and it depends from song to song
  2. Long beatless breaks in songs and slow openings can be accommodated but they make placing the vid in the mix harder as they can break up the flow.
  3. Slow dance has never really gone down well at club vivid, alas. Nor has country but I think there's exceptions that could break that rule. If it's fun, it can be a blast at club vivid.
  4. Please please please find a good quality source for your audio as it will really help people enjoy the vid more. If you need help with this, ask.
  5. Feel free to add credits after the music but note that they may be edited out when mixed for the live show. They will be intact on the dvd. MTV-style credits are of course totally fine too.
  6. Any footage is good footage for club vivid. Seriously, people have danced to Bambi in previous years and loved it.

Club Vivid 2016 Signups Coming Soon

Feb. 4th, 2016 09:57 pm

[personal profile] absolutedestiny posting in [community profile] vividcon
It's that time of year again. Song signups for Club Vivid 2016 will start Saturday 6th Feb at around 12:00 EST.

Like all prior years, if you plan to make a brand new vid for Club Vivid this year you must first gain approval for your vidsong. We accept >80% of all requests but sometimes we feel that a particular track may not be ideal as a dance floor vid.

In addition to the regular rules, this year we have something new.

I've put together a playlist of songs that are automatically approved. You are not required to choose from this list but those of you who are on the lookout for new vidsongs can look for something here and know that I'll definitely say yes to it!

You can listen to this year's playlist here:

On spotify
On youtube

There's over 11 hours of songs there so there should be something for everyone. Including things that are bad. No judging, ok?

A few things to note:
  1. I don't care if there is a vid to a song already. Even if it's yours. I want new vids to these songs.
  2. I've specified remixes in some cases. Sometimes it's important, sometimes it's not - if you want to vid an alternative version of a song just ask.
  3. The youtube version of the list is auto-generated so may not be entirely accurate. YMMV.
Feedback on this new approach is appreciated so let me know if this playlist is something we should do every year! If the list is way too much and you are looking for something particular - just ask and I can point out certain tracks that might fit an idea you have.

Enjoy, have fun and look out for signups this weekend!

VidUKon 2016 Scholarship

Feb. 3rd, 2016 09:02 pm
[personal profile] vidukonnews posting in [community profile] vidukon_cardiff


Once again, VidUKon will be offering a scholarship! Even though the con is held in the UK, we like to think of it as a European event. The scholarship has been funded by donation and is intended to offer support to one fan, who is not a UK resident and who has not been to the con before, to attend. This includes an Attending membership, Saturday Night Dinner Ticket and accommodation on the basis of sharing a room with one other person. Preference will be given to European residents. Please check out the website to see whether you are eligible and to nominate yourself or others. We are also accepting further donations to the fund if you would like to contribute, and this will go towards travel costs for the recipient.

You can also donate to the scholarship fund through the scholarship page, if you'd like to; you don't have to donate to the fund to nominate someone, and you don't have to nominate someone to donate. The scholarship funds are kept seperate from the convention funds, and will never be used to fund the con itself; if no-one accepts the scholarship, then the money will be rolled forward to fund a scholarship for next year. In the event that there is no next con, the scholarship fund will be donated to an international charity.

You can check out the scholarship page here:


There's just under four days left in the auction - there's still some time to grab yourself a vid from one (or more) of the six lovely vidders who're sacrificing themselves for our cause - metaphorically, not literally. Don't leave bidding to the last minute unless you love tension and are willing to risk losing out...

Final reminder!
