Lookie Here–Deadline Loomin’!

Lookie Here–Deadline Loomin’!

Hi Folks!

Just to clarify, anyone can submit until Midnight PST today for MoFo 2012.  The form is still open and accepting information.  The blog list on Katie’s previous post was offered, because we’re overwhelmed with requests to check to see if specific blogs were entered correctly.  We made the list about an hour ago, so if you’ve submitted your blog to MoFo since then, you won’t be on the list.  Please be rest assured we received your information.

I present to you a cute dog to soothe your nerves.

The final list with links, as well as reader bundles will be available in a few days.  I know everyone is excited, but please be patient and remember it’s just a few volunteers who are pulling this all together.  Thank you, we love you all.

Take good care,

List of blogs – updated.

Some people were missing from our list and it wasn’t up-to-date, so kittee threw together just a list of blog names – to easily find your blog just hit Ctrl + F (on PC, I don’t know how you search on a Mac) and type in your blog name (make sure you spell and captialize just as you did when you entered it). These are the titles, not the URLs. And this is up-to-date as of 8:30 CST.

Banners and answering a few questions!

Banners and answering a few questions!

Remember that the deadline to sign up is today! Spread the word as we always have a handful of people who miss the deadline!

(Also you can now follow us on instagram @VeganMoFo, tag your relevant photos with #veganmofo so we can reshare them!)

Finally, here are some banners – you may notice that they are just ones from last year with the year changed. The person who did all of the graphics last year is very sick and so we couldn’t even get the original files from her to easily edit or ask what the font is, so I just had to try and match as best as I could and some of them couldn’t be changed without looking very, very bad. I’m sorry there aren’t more, but if you want to make your own banner the hex code for the orange is #cc6633.

And now some questions that we keep getting asked! Well, mostly this one:

I didn’t get a confirmation email/how do I know my form went through?

If you didn’t get a confirmation email, don’t worry, there is none! The form you fill out simply dumps the information into a google spreadsheet, we don’t even get notified when someone fills it out. And since we don’t require emails, we don’t have an easy way to contact most people.

We started the main blog roll page early so people can check for themselves, it was done on Monday afternoon so if you signed up after that, don’t freak out. We will update it again before we make the bundles, so if you don’t see your blog you will have time to squeeze in. But if you submitted the form and had no issues with the page timing out, there is only about a 0.00000000000001% chance that we did not get your form.

Similarly, some people seem to think that the form is an application to get in. VeganMoFo is a house party, not a club! Everyone who wants to, plays.

We forgot to specify when we updated the FAQ and form this year, but: VeganMoFo means no honey. We’re not interested in sparking a huge debate, but we did get quite a few emails last year complaining about the use of honey. Even if you’re vegan and have no problem eating honey, please keep in mind that a lot of people don’t see it any different than eating things like gelatin or carmine. We are not trying to play Vegan Police or pass judgement of any sort – we are simply responding to an issue that has been pointed out to us.

Finally, if you have any last minute questions don’t hesitate to ask!
