Inspired by (read: shamelessly ripping off) attendees at Gallifrey One, the mega-huge, mega-awesome North American Doctor Who convention, we’re encouraging people to bring ribbons to trade this year at CommuniCon.
Basically, you create a ribbon with your favorite Community quote, catch-phrase, and/or design using a site like ribbonsgalore.com/custom (just for example, not an endorsement), order a chunk, and then trade with and/or just give them away to other attendees at the convention. Since this is new for CommuniCon, I’d recommend ordering no more than 50, but it’s your money, so go nuts if you want.
Some people use them to advertise their sites/blogs/podcasts/businesses, like a more fun business card, but most just trade or share for fun.
This certainly isn’t a requirement, but it’s a fun way to meet people, remember how many amazing lines Community has produced, and go home with extra souvenirs.
The fine folks at Galifrey One have a whole page describing the phenomenon, if you’re interested or don’t quite understand the concept. CommuniCon isn’t connected to Gallifrey at all. This is just FYI: http://www.gallifreyone.com/?page_id=290.
I try to keep CommuniCon passes as cheap as possible to cover the costs of putting on the event. However, a little extra money could help make it better, and help cover costs of merchandise, which I generally sell at the convention for less than cost, because I want people to have souvenirs without having to pay too much for them.
SO, if you are wonderful and also able to donate to the CommuniCon effort, I’ve got a few fun thank you gifts at various levels. There’s a small chance some of these may change slightly in appearance, but they will basically be as pictured.
This is mostly intended for people who aren’t able to attend CommuniCon 3, but still want to contribute and/or get some fun stuff. Of course, if you are able to attend and still want to donate, bless you and feel free!
If you want to donate, simply Paypal your donation to communicon1(at)gmail(dot)com.
IMPORTANT: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU NOTE IN THE MESSAGE FIELD WHETHER YOU’D LIKE YOUR THANK YOU GIFT AND, IF SO, PLEASE PUT YOUR MAILING ADDRESS AND, IF RELEVANT, WHICH GIFT YOU’D LIKE. IF YOUR THANK YOU GIFT INCLUDES A T-SHIRT, PLEASE TELL ME WHICH COLOR AND SIZE YOU WANT. The t-shirts are American Apparel Men’s/Unisex sizes.
Donation Levels and Thank You Gifts:
$1-9 donation: My eternal gratitude
$10-$24 donation: Personalized Thank You postcard
$25-49 donation: CommuniCon 3 T-shirt (options: white or dark purple)
$50-99 donation: Thank You Gift Option 1: CommuniCon 3 T-shirt and Mug OR Thank You Gift Option 2: Exclusive CommuniCon 3 “Not Just a Show” Print
$100-499 donation: CommuniCon 3 T-shirt, mug AND Exclusive CommuniCon 3 “Not Just a Show” Print
$500+ donation: All CommuniCon 3 merchandise (t-shirt, mug, buttons), Exclusive CommuniCon 3 “Not Just a Show” Print, + an item of your choosing that we will get signed by as many show people as possible at CommuniCon + submit a question to a CommuniCon 3 panel of your choosing. [NOTE: I MAY NEED TO LIMIT THE NUMBER OF THESE $500 LEVEL THANK YOU GIFTS SO AS NOT TO INUNDATE COMMUNITY PEOPLE WITH AUTOGRAPH REQUESTS AT THE EVENT.]
If you’re outside the United States, please add $15 to these amounts to cover additional shipping costs (excluding the post card level).
I’d like to include some testimonials on communiconcentral.com. If you’ve been to either CommuniCon & want to share your thoughts, email communicon1@gmail and I’ll select some to include. Please let me know how you’d like to be identified, and include your location if you’re willing. Thanks!

COMMUNICON 3 TICKETS GO ON SALE THIS FRIDAY AT 10:00 AM PACIFIC
Hello Human Beings!
I know we’ve all been pretty bummed, so I’m very excited to announce that tickets to CommuniCon 3: Case Study in Conventional Triangulation, go on sale this Friday, May 16, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time. There are a few ticket options available, which you can review at CommuniCon3.brownpapertickets.com before they go on sale.
PLEASE NOTE: There are a limited number of Early Bird/Pre-sale General Admission Weekend Passes for $40. These will ONLY be available until they sell out, or until Sunday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific, whichever comes first. If you miss out on the Pre-Sale discounted passes, a second set of General Admission Weekend Passes will be available for $50, starting Sunday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific.
If you are able to pay via Amazon Payments, please select that option. Doing so will help me out a lot, because it will give me access to the funds before the event. I don’t get the BrownPaperTickets payments until after the event is over.
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 TQs: Sarah Dorman, Catherine Boyd, Jennifer Eisenhour, Kim Rogers, and Clinton Alvord (especially Sarah, who was, again, my co-captain/savior)

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.
