UPDATE: All of the poster slots are now filled. Thanks to our new Super/Giga Sponsors! You can still register as a SuperSponsor or higher, with the normal advertised benefits including access to the sponsor lounge and Guest of Honor lunch. Keep an eye out for announcements about upcoming promotions.

The generosity of our Supersponsors really help Megaplex provide a fun and unique environment, and so we'd like to offer something special to those individuals who register as a Supersponsor or higher earlier in the year.

Many of our attendees are familiar with our colorful posters that we use as hall decor each year. Some of these posters have been placed in our charity auction and gone for more than $100 a piece. This year, YOUR CHARACTER can be included in the poster art! That's right, the first 12 individuals who register as a Supersponsor or higher for Megaplex 2014, can have their character included into the design of one of this year's posters. Depending on design, there can be up to 3 characters per poster. And since we place the full size posters in the charity auction, we will provide you with a smaller, personal copy so that you are guaranteed to have one! Oh, and we have not forgotten about those who have already registered at the Supersponsor or higher level. Your spots are already secure if you want them!

Does that sound sweet? You can help the convention, and be included in the poster art that will be used throughout this year's Megaplex! We have to give the artists time to create the best possible work. So please hurry, only the first 12 SuperSponsors and up can take advantage of this early bird registration special.

6 months out! Megaplex news and updates
fun, laughing, amused
Well everyone, we're already at the 6-month mark! We have some important announcements and reminders for you:

Also in our con store, we are selling the Bowling Shirts that we introduced at Megaplex 2013. You can order them online for pickup at the convention when you retrieve your badge.

If you haven't heard, our artist guests of honor this year are the ever-amazing Mary Mouse and TaniDaReal. They're excited to be a part of this year's events. We're already seeing some lovely artwork created by them exclusively for Megaplex!

Calling all artists and writers - Have a creative idea that you think is sweet enough for the Candy Factory? We'd love to feature your work in our Con Book! Details and submission info can be found here.

We have open staff positions in Con Security. If you're interested in joining our team, fill out a staff application.

We'll also be looking for volunteers for various roles, such as our dance competition. If you're interested in signing up to help out, please fill out this form for our volunteer coordinator. For every hour contributed, volunteers are offered $5 off registration for the following year, up to the full price of a 3 day attending membership.

Programming is now taking submissions for panels and events. Much of the programming at Megaplex happens because you, our attendees, are willing to take the time to host a panel, meet-and-greet, or workshop in a subject area that interests you. If you would like to request to host an event this year, please fill out the request form.

DJ submissions are now being accepted. If you would like to be considered as a DJ for one of our dances, please fill out the event request form.

Remember, event organizers and hosts are offered the same benefits as volunteers: $5 off next year's registration for each hour of your time, up to the full price of a 3 day attending membership, for every hour you host a panel, meet-and-greet or workshop.

If you have any questions or feedback for the convention, we're listening! Contact us by email or ask us questions on Twitter, Facebook or FurAffinity.

The future of this account
thoughtful, preoccupied
Hi all,

Although Megaplex has been growing quickly, this LiveJournal community has seen very little use in the last couple of years, aside from crossposting convention announcements. We've been considering no longer supporting it, in favor of other social networks and news sources. I'm looking for some feedback to see if anybody is still actively relying on the Megaplex LJ community.

If the community is discontinued, convention updates will continue to be available by other means:

All Megaplex announcements are posted to our website, which has an RSS feed. You can add the RSS feed to your aggregator of choice, and it is also on LiveJournal at megaplexcon and on DreamWidth. This feed allows you to continue getting convention news and updates here on LJ, but it is not a moderated community like this one, and users will not be able to post entries to it.

Updates are also posted to our Twitter, FurAffinity, and (new) FaceBook accounts. If you have an account on any of these websites we encourage following us for updates and important information about the con. You can also ask us questions on any of those websites and expect a reasonably quick response.

If discontinued, this community and all existing entries would remain here for posterity, but convention news & updates would not be crossposted here, and users would be encouraged to post on networks that are more relevant and visible, or to email us directly, if anybody has information or questions to share.

Thank you!
