How have you been? We’ve been *really* busy, preparing some Mysterium news for you!
Mini no more?
Given the numbers we got on our polls, we have decided to drop the ‘mini’. This is now a full-on Mysterium, with support from some members of the normal Mysterium Committee. That said, we are still running from our own website (http://mysterium.zibland.com/), and questions should be sent to our Digital Non-sentient Indicator (or D’NI for short) at .
Do you have 1337 art skills? Do you love Amateria? Did you skip those last two questions? Then have we got a contest for you! Read more
The "mini-Mysterium Commitee" is currently accepting submissions for both T-Shirt and Convention Logos for this years Mysterium convention. Here are details for the submission process:
- The convention theme is Amateria
- All designs should be 150dpi/ppi and submitted as a jpg or png (should the design be chosen we may contact you for the original file)
- Shirt Front/Back designs should be 2100px by 1800px (or 1800px by 2100 px)
- Convention Logo (which may double as a mini-shirt logo) should be 600px by 600px
- Entries will be accepted until May 7th
For more information on how to enter the contest, see the link below.
N.B This is not the official Mysterium. It started out as mini-Mysterium but then grew out of the "mini" tag.
So, it’s looking more and more like Mysterium won’t happen this year. Rather than sit around waiting for news that will probably never come, a few of us have decided to band together and make something happen! We’re planning a mini-Mysterium in Boston, MA, but we need your input before we can really get planning.
We have two polls up on our site here (http://mysterium.zibland.com/?p=11), and your answers will help us figure out how many people to expect and when people can come. Aka, we need to know if we should book a closet or a palace. So, if you’re interested in attending our version of a Mysterium, please let us know by answering those polls.
The polls will close at midnight on April 16th, so spread the word to your friends. We’ll post more news to the site (http://mysterium.zibland.com) as we have it.
Oh, and if you like designing things, feel free to start working on t-shirt designs for when we open up that contest.
If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, presents, fan-mail, spam, or other types of responses, feel free to comment here or on the site. All input is welcome and will help us figure out how to make this crazy thing work!
Bidding for Mysterium 2011 location will be closing on Aug 31!
Tell us why your east coast time zone city would be a great place to host Mysterium by giving a few lines here: http://www.mysterium.net/mysterium-2011/location/
As promised last weekend, we'd like to announce the commencement of the (brief) 2011 location bidding process. From the short 2011 Location panel in Minneapolis this year, we left with the impression that there was support for Mysterium in cities that we hadn't considered during our internal discussions. It has also become apparent to us that having a local expert on the city that we're planning Mysterium in is a vital part of making informed decisions regarding neighborhoods, the quality of hotels, and availability of things such as local attractions and food options.
For these reasons, we've decided to delay the decision regarding the location of Mysterium 2011 by a few weeks to accomplish both of these.
If you think your North American EST city is right for Mysterium 2011, tell us why. Submit a bid by August 31st and help us bring Mysterium 2011 to your city!
