Expo 2014

Postby onetruepurple » Wed Feb 05, 2014 2:33 pm

No reason to not have one this year.

Who should I be bugging the most to make it happen?

1. Bug potential hosts. quakewiki has dibs :D
2. Bug everyone to get a 'consensus' on the date.
3. Bug people on the various yet sparsely populated Q1/2/3 forums, so they'll show up.
4. Bug writers and reviewers so there can be good coverage and publicity.

I'm here, listening. Not sure if I can host it, as my wife is due in May, but I'll do my best.

And, yeah, I think I have dibs on it. :)

Wow, congrats! Another Quake-er on the way! Remember, it's never too early to get them started modding.

Hello Chip,

May? Ours is due in May too =)

Bouncing baby BSPs everywhere!
...and all around me was the chaos of battle and the reek of running blood.... and for the first time in my life I knew true happiness.

Judging from the buzz on both here and terrafusion, I'm pretty sure that a qexpo would be a wild success. So let's get going. :D

First off, I'm not going to beat around the bush and say that I have a keen interest in being the host. But if that were to happen, the expo's date would need to be August (way too many plates spinning in June/July for me), which, I think, would be in the best interest of everyone wanting to take part? Because if we announced a June date now, it could be a bit too short notice, whereas a late August date gives everyone six months to prepare.

That, and the former expo hosts whom I'm going to bug quite a lot are also going to be busy in the coming months, as far as I can tell. ;-)

Don't care much where it's hosted as long as it's stable and reliable. quakewiki.net would probably be the way to go, then.

Perhaps a splash page with something like "August 2014" can be posted on expo2014.quakewiki.net? :D

I know FrikaC made a cgi-bin version of the quakec interpreter once and wrote part of his website in QuakeC :) (LordHavoc)

I don't see many people commenting here and agreeing to an expo. I think voting is good before considering the expo this year.
