Will the nominees be notified that they have been nominated 5 times? Giving them time to make a video?
Generally speaking, Yes, they will! However, I (moderator Allie) am currently on semi-hiatus because I am out of town and have only my mobile phone. (my computer is across the country right now) Any votes that have been recorde in the past few days are going to have to wait another week or so to be fully processed. I might manage to borrow a laptop while I’m out here, so I might be able to notify some of the nominees that have received all of their notification quota at once.
1. My personal computer is doing something extremely wonky that is preventing me from opening up any programs including Internet browsers, word processors, and antivirus.
2. I am going out of town for spring break and will be unable to fix this problem until I get back.
So what does this mean for you guys? I will be unable to record votes for Prom King/Queen for the time being. I wil see them, but I will not be able to respond to them or write them into my spreadsheet. They’re just going to have to sit in the inbox for a while. SO DON’T WORRY. It’s there and will be recorded. Just not immediately.
IRL meetups will not be affected by this. Mod Emily will continue to update the IRL page.
is underway. A venue has been booked in Lincoln, NE for a few weeks after tumblr homestuck prom. Any residents of the midwest united states are welcome. Either message me ( dirklaughingalonewithbruteshead ) or watch for info on the midwesternstuck group page.
It’s around this time that I would love to form some sort of Prom committee, to help me with the planning and execution of what will hopefully be a pretty awesome prom night. If anyone at all is interested, then hit up the note tab or ask me at papadoux.tumblr.com. Make sure to include a place I can easily contact you!
I found out that a friend of mine in the Chicago area meetup group has already started planning a meetup, and though I’ll be assisting her with anything she needs, I’m planning on leaving her be and leaving all of the decision making in her hands. I’l continue to update about the meetup here, though
Can you please link the new york, new york Promstuck meet to the link in the title instead? The two mentioned are out-of-date, the one above is the most current post and also gives the tracked tag for people looking for updates! Thank you!
Oh man, pleaase can somebody do a UK meet up. I would organised one myself but I can't do it alone! And the only friends in my area are non-Homestuck fans so I can't get any help from them! (NutellaOnChips on DeviantART)
My date and I would be so down for a Chicago meetup, and I'm sure we would be more than willing to pitch in for a banquet hall of some kind :) This is Karkat from the askirl-karkat-terezi that kind of talked to you before, btw :D
So I am thinking about personally hosting a Chicago area IRL Prom
I have had quite a number of people ask me about whether or not there will be a Chicago promstuck, to which I have heard nothing about. I’d like to propose that we consider starting something up? I was even thinking that if we give it enough forethought and find enough people, we could even consider pooling together and renting out a small banquet hall or venue in which we could actually have a real “dance”. We wouldn’t really need to hire a DJ or anything, just put together a playlist in advance and see if anyone has a decent speaker system they could tow along. I was originally thinking I’d like to stay out of planning an IRL meetup, but this is something I’d really love to see happen.
Hello, everyone! So this blog has been running for a little while, and already, things have been off to a great start! People are getting stoked for prom, nominations for prom kind and queen are flying in left and right, IRL meetups are popping up everywhere, and at the time of this writing, we’re only a few followers away from 1,000! As this event has grown, I ended up recruiting some other folks to help me run the blog and make sure things are running quickly and smoothly. However, all of the maintenance up until now has been very much behind the scenes-well no more! I think it’s time to introduce not only myself, but the other lovely people who assist me in running this blog and whom I would be nothing without! So without further adieu-
Mod Allie (Main Administrator/Prom Court/Dance-off)
Hi everyone! My name is Allie, and I run the Homestuck Prom event with the help of my lovely moderators! I am currently residing in the Chicago area, but relocating to North Carolina in a few months. My two greatest loves are music and cosplay. I play Violin, Guitar, Piano, and Vocal. I’ve been cosplaying since about 2006, but I only got into homestuck cosplay about a year ago when I cosplayed Rose for the first time. I’ve since then debuted several versions of Jade (including Dead Shuffle, Eclectica, Dog Tier, and 3AM), and I’m currently working on a Vriska Serket Cosplay for Anime Central 2012 where I’ll also be appearing as GLaDOS/Portal 2 and Lotti Baskerville/Pandora Hearts. I also run an irl ask jade blog.
Hola! My name is Emma. I’m 15 years old and a self proclaimed virgo (I’m really an aries, don’t tell anyone, it’s a secret). I currently live in smack dab in the middle of Ohio. Besides Homestuck, I’m really into art, though I’m not especially good at it. Just a compulsive doodler. My viola also takes up quite a lot of my time. I’m part of a string quartet and play in several chamber orchestras. When I’m not doodling or practicing, I enjoy reading, photography, long distance running, and cosplaying. Speaking of cosplay, I’ll be attending the prom as John Egbert.
Mod Alyssa (Homestuck Prom Dates Classifieds Blog)
Hi there! My name’s Lyssa but some people call me Guppy. I’m almost 20, I’m a Gemini, and I live in the lovely state of Connecticut! I love doing traditional Hawaiian dance and I’ve been doing it on and off since I was in diapers. Some of my other hobbies are digital art, singing, dancing, fashion, makeup application, and cooking! I love to design clothes and make my own cosplays and for a year and a half, I went to fashion school up in Massachusetts. I absolutely LOVE Homestuck and it’s so great to help out with the Homestuck Prom! I will either be cosplaying as Jade or Fem!Sollux for the prom.
Hello there, I’m one of your new moderators! My name is Emily, I’m 16 years old, and I live in California. Some of my hobbies include watching movies, (amateur) filmmaking, gaming, and reading. In addition to homestuck, I enjoy My Little Pony, any slenderman videos, and anime. Some of my favorite musical artists include Regina Spektor, Tori Amos, Vocaloid, and Ludo. My personal tumblr is plasticoctopus.tumblr.com and… that’s all I can really think of!
Ladies and Gentlemen, our wonderful team, working around the clock to make sure that Homestuck Prom 2012 is an indubitable success! However, just like you guys, we’ll be participating in the event, dressing up, uploading photos, joining chatrooms, seeking dates, and all that jazz! Never hesitate to say hello! :)
Please stop sending in asks regarding if there are any meetups in your area.
This is a primary online event. Meetups are certainly allowed and encouraged, but they’ve become a source of a lot of clutter lately. Also it’s becoming very tedious to answer them all
If we have been informed of a meetup in your area, either myself or (more likely) Mod Emily will have both published it on the blog and added it to our IRL meetups page. You can find that in the sidebar.
If it’s not on the page, we don’t know about it. Sorry!
for the dance the song is it okay if we do a remix of the song moves like jagger?
The reason I ask you all to dance to the same song is so that I can easily compile all of the dance submissions into one video. Using a remix isn’t a huge deal and I’m not going to disqualify you or anything if you do it, but I’d just prefer if you didn’t.
