Since the competition judging period is extended this year, we’ll hold a special second IFComp online meeting on Sunday, November 15th from 2 PM to 4 PM via Google Meet. We’ll play samples of several more games from the competition and discuss them with the group.

As always, we’ll send out the Google Meet link by email. If you are not already on the email list, please contact Greg for a link.

Thanks!

Oh me too—I’m in the same boat as Liz, I am new here and would love to join the Meetup on 3/21, but can’t figure out how to send you a message, Greg. Apologies for that, please advise :slight_smile:

This was a total blast! Reading IF with a group was so much fun and not as terrifying as I was anticipating. Thanks to Greg and everyone for inviting me and participating!

One thing you can do in messages is “at” someone (like @okushimo ) which will put the message in a user’s notifications since you mentioned them.

Our annual IFComp virtual meetup of the Seattle/Tacoma IF group will be on Sunday, October 17 from 2 PM to 4 PM (ish) via Discord. Group members who have an entry in this year’s competition are encouraged to present their games; we’ll play a sample of each (about 30 min) and take questions as we go. This was a lot of fun last year, so we’re looking forward to being able to do it again.
