Re: Ottawa Geek Market extends free admission to OPGS VIP pass holders

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.

Re: O-Town Throwdown Pinball Tournament @ OPGS 2018 - September 22/23

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!

Re: O-Town Throwdown Pinball Tournament @ OPGS 2018 - September 22/23

I've been posting updates to the tournament Facebook page , but realized not everyone has access to that. I just got to reliable service, so still haven't read through the other threads, but I'll try to respond to comments about the tournament there as required. However, it would make things easily ...

I very much appreciate the offer, Colin, but Mike has one on a stand he can lend me, which is perfect. Still on the lookout for a laptop or something I can connect to the TV to broadcast the webpage. Thanks!

Anyone who is planning to play in the tournament can save some time with registration by sending me a message to pre-register before Wednesday night. Just include a 4-digit PIN that you'll use to log into the software and your full name. I'll send you your player number and the link to the website. ...

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.

Yup, a couple of people who use unique addresses to sign up for sites confirm that it came to the one they use for IFPA.

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!
