For those who didn’t see my tweet the other day, if you have suggestions for panels or activities at the next CommuniCon, let me know! I can’t promise anything, but I definitely want to know what you want to see and do at the next one.
And while I’ve got you thinking about CommuniCon, if you’re interested in letting us use your original songs or music about or inspired by Community in the CommuniCon 2 documentary, please email me at communicon1 (at) gmail. We can’t pay you, sadly, (we’re not selling or otherwise making money off the doc) but you’d obviously get credited in the documentary.
Can’t believe it’s been a year since the first CommuniCon! My sincerest thanks to everyone who has attended or contributed or helped spread the word. With extra special crazytown bananapants thanks to those who trusted enough to attend the first one a year ago. Hope to see you all at the next one!
Multiple people have asked that the questions from the Fans vs. Writers Trivia contests be posted. I had to depend on my memory for which questions have been asked at the two conventions, so I may have left a few out, and included a few that weren’t actually asked. But this should mostly be right. Enjoy!

My fellow Community fans, who inspired this convention
What are you doing the day of the next full moon? Want to join a Community flashmob? It’s October 18th in LA. We’re meeting at 2pm, flashmob to start at 3; at Universal CityWalk. The details and Facebook invitation is the link. Join us! Just be careful of the werewolves.
CommuniCon weekend flashmob! Let’s participate this thing!
It’s October! Do you know what that means? COMMUNICON!
Now don’t be sad if you didn’t get tickets. You still can! You can still see the Writers Panel with Andy Bobrow, Tim Saccardo, Hilary Winston, and more! You can still participate in the Writers vs Fans Trivia Contest (and I think they are probably boning up following their humiliating defeat during the last con, so we could use all the help we can get)! You can still participate in the Costume Contest! You can still see the “No Small Parts” Panel with Charley Koontz (Neil), Danielle Kaplowitz (Vicki), David Neher (Todd), and more (my personal favorite from the last con)! You can still see the Q&A with the developers of Journey to the Center of Hawkthorne video game! AND YOU CAN STILL SEE DAN HARMON AND CHRIS McKENNA!
This is going to be an amazing experience for Community fans. I really hope you don’t miss it.
Hi Gillian, I missed the Kickstarter campaign (rats!) and I plan on buying tickets, but I just wanted to know where/when I can get the official CommuniCon t-shirt? Thank-you, fellow human being!
Hi there! Excellent question.
Sadly, I actually don’t think we’ll have extras for sale at the convention this year. I ended up losing a lot of money on merchandise last time around, and since they were a reward on Kickstarter, and most people chose the $40 admission option rather than the $50 option (which included a t-shirt), I have to assume that most people attending aren’t interested in purchasing one at the event. So unfortunately it isn’t really worth the risk of ordering a lot of extras to try to sell. However, there may be a few. And I will have t-shirts from February’s CommuniCon available, for people interested in a keepsake from the first convention.
In case I’m wrong, I am planning to collect the names/email addresses of people who ARE interested in a t-shirt, and if there’s enough interest, I’ll place another order.
And, actually, if enough of you out there tell me right now that I’m wrong, I’d consider taking orders now to have them ready for you at the convention.
Also, there will be some other merchandise available for purchase at the convention.
Attention Greendale Community College: A wonderful Human Being has agreed to organize a paintball outing the Friday of CommuniCon weekend, assuming there is enough interest. This is separate from CommuniCon; I’m just helping to spread the word.
She found a pretty great option, which includes a field that’s all ours and a private referee. The price is $35/person, which includes 200 paintballs and all equipment. If more than 30 people sign up, the price would drop to $30/person. Transportation isn’t included, but organizing carpools shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
If you’re interested, please email afistfulofcommunies (a) gmail (dot) com. In your email, please include the number of people interested, and whether you’d be able and willing to drive yourself and/or others.
To enter the raffle, email your answers to the following trivia questions with the subject “CommuniCon Raffle” by 1:30 pm Eastern / 10:30 am Pacific to communicon1 (at) gmail (dot) com. Winners will be notified via email by 8:00 pm Eastern / 5pm Pacific.
1. How many people voted, respectively, in the Tranny Queen and the Student Body President elections?
2. In which episode(s) does Quendra appear?
3. Whose face appears on the “Welcome to Greendale: You’re Already Accepted!” poster that’s in “For a Few Paintballs More?”
4. How many siblings, if any, does Britta have? Brother(s) or sister(s)?
5. How many episodes of Cougarton Abbey aired?
Good luck, Human Beings!
PLEASE NOTE: THIS RAFFLE IS FOR ADMISSION ONLY. IT DOES NOT INCLUDE AIRFARE, ACCOMMODATIONS, OR ANYTHING ELSE.
Hope everyone’s had time to review and get excited about the CommuniCon schedule!
For anyone who doesn’t have a ticket and wants to come, I’ll be doing a raffle tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 13, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific / 1:00 p.m. Eastern. At that time, I’ll be posting 5 Community trivia questions on tumblr, twitter, facebook, and the Community subreddit. To enter the raffle, you must email your answers to communicon1 (at) gmail (dot) com by 10:30 a.m. Pacific/1:30 p.m. Eastern. Winners will be notified via email by 5:00 p.m. Pacific/8:00 p.m. Eastern.
Obviously I can’t police this, but if you answer the questions without having to resort to googling, it’d be a lot cool cool cooler of you.
