So it's something you shut down manually? May I suggest you keep it open over the Thanksgiving weekend then? Give people a chance to show they are grateful for a few more days. :)

Re: OPL Saturday, October 27th @ Sammy31's

Maybe I can host November but I only have 3 games. Good to hear from you, Guy! We already have someone lined up for November, but maybe later on in the season? Three machines might make it interesting, but we can probably come up with a format that could work. Those are some great games. :) Note to...

I talked to Stacey of the Geek Market. Josh is going to send them a list of the VIPs who didn't request a refund and they'll use that.

Now that I've had a bit of time to process this weekend, I just wanted to express my immense gratitude to everyone who supported the tournament, even though it didn't happen. We had seven games set up (with two more on site) and (almost) ready to go as soon as power came back, volunteers on stand-by...

Re: Power at the show?

Yeah, I remain hopeful that we can still run a kickass tournament tomorrow in addition to the show. I've cancelled today's qualifying and will post a revised format when I have one.

Don't give up hope!

Suggestion for new board: Events

What about creating a section for Events? Right now those threads get lumped into the general MAACA Forum and Chat board, but I think we're starting to have enough to justify a separate board.

Josh has confirmed that one of the Premiere Sponsors (but not which one) did hire this consulting firm to do some market research on their behalf utilizing the IFPA email list.

Re: Did anyone else get this? L.E.K. Possible Scam/Phishing?

IFPA shares our email addresses with its sponsors. It's most likely that one of those sponsors made use of the list for market research purposes or possibly shared it. Josh Sharpe is looking into it.

Re: Did anyone else get this? L.E.K. Possible Scam/Phishing?

Lots of people got it based on a thread posted on Tilt.

I suspect they got our email addresses from IFPA, but Josh Sharpe says that's not the case. Hopefully someone who uses site-specific email addresses will be able to identify the source.

I'll let you know if I learn anything more!
