    • The Return of RTSQ Presents!

      4 years ago

      SideQuest

      Hey there RT Community! We've got some BIG news for you today! It's the return of RTSQ Presents!

      We introduced the RTSQ Presents program a few years ago at RTX as way to help community groups host their own events. The next year, it grew into our first ever grant program, and we awarded five $100 grants to help groups host events at RTX. This year, we're upping the ante and awarding five $200 grants through RTSQ Presents: Community Events! More details on the program, including how to apply, can be found at rtsidequest.org/rtsq-presents .

      You may notice we added a subtitle up there - RTSQ Presents: Community Events. Now, why would we do that?

      Probably because RTSQ Presents is expanding! Today, we'd like to introduce you to RTSQ Presents: Community Content.

      We can't cover all the details in this news post, but we'll give you the short version. We were approached by RT community group The Angels with an amazing idea for an event they wanted to host as part of RTSQ Presents. Unfortunately it was too large for the existing program, but we all knew that NEEDED to become a reality. We worked quickly to figure out a way to make it happen, and here we are!

      RTSQ Presents: Community Content w/ The Angels is going to be unlike any RT community event we've seen before. We're going to host a showcase of community content on the silver screen at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz the day before RTX! That's right! YOUR content will be on the big screen at one of the greatest theaters in the world and you'll watch it while surrounded by tons of your best friends! And it's a great reason/excuse to have lunch at Alamo Drafthouse!

      We're still working out a few details, but you can find everything we've finalized over at rtsidequest.org/rtsq-presents . We'd like to stress that this is NOT an awards show, but simply a showcase for RT Community content creators. We want to make sure that this community, which has bonded over a shared love of RT's content, knows that there are people and groups among us creating really amazing things like podcasts, movies, livestreams, music, and more!

      You all probably have TONS of questions about RTSQ Presents and I promise we'll work to answer them over the next few weeks. We'll work to compile a FAQ as soon as we can, based on questions sent to us on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or in the comments below.

      Don't forget to get your tickets to RTX SideQuest while you still can! Also, we're hoping to have details on submitting items to our RTX SideQuest Cocktail Party and Charity Auction up within the next week or so!

      Enim Filii!

      You know, community artists have always loved the fact that our RTX SideQuest Cocktail Party and Charity Auction gives them a place to show off their art. But some art just can't be displayed at an auction...

      We can't say anything else until tomorrow, but if you make awesome content for the community like music, videos, podcasts, let's plays, etc, you might want to keep an eye out for an announcement tomorrow.

      ...we're just throwing community managers off of buildings!

      That's right, it's time for RTSQ for Make-A-Wish!

      We're teaming up with Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas again this year to send @barbara AND @caleb Over the Edge!

      Last year, we successfully raised over $1500 to send Barbara Over the Edge. It was pretty incredible, and entertaining: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSmRydUBmpQ

      That money went towards granting the wishes of kids who could really use it. One of my favorite Wish Stories actually comes from the South Dakota chapter - Jacob wished to meet Rooster Teeth! southdakota.wish.org/wishes/wish-stories/i-wish-to...

      You can also check out some of the inspiring Wish Stories from the Central Texas chapter at cstx.wish.org/wishes/wish-stories

      Help us grant wishes like Jacob's in the central Texas area by donating to send Barbara and Caleb Over the Edge in June. Assuming they reach the $1500 threshold to go Over the Edge, we'll be hosting a meet-up to cheer them on! Last year Barbara even decided to hang around (GET IT?!) with us afterwards for coffee and silly faces.

      And, just to make it interesting, let's say that the first one out of Barbara and Caleb to reach the $1500 mark gets to dress the other for the day of the event. Frisbees for Barbara! Pretty dresses for Caleb! The sky (or at least, the part of the sky closest to the top of the W Hotel in Austin) is the limit!

      Donate to Barbara - www.austinovertheedge.com/bdunkelman/
      Donate to Caleb - www.austinovertheedge.com/calebdenecour/

      Remember, they EACH have to get to $1500 to go Over the Edge! Also, we don't have to stop at $1500! Every dollar helps to grant wishes! Let's see how many we can grant as a community!

    • Cultivating a Community panel @ RTX 2015

      4 years ago

      SideQuest

      Panel applications are open for RTX 2015 at rtxevent.com/panels/ and that means it's time to consider if we want to bring Cultivating a Community back for another round. Event Boogaloo, if you will.

      What is Cultivating a Community, you ask? "Cultivating a Community: Hosting Successful RT Community Events" was a panel at RTX 2014 about... hosting successful RT Community events. We gathered a bunch of community event hosts together and let them talk about what they think makes a successful community event. Then we let YOU pick their brain with some Q&A. More details can be found at rtsidequest.org/news/cultivating-a-community-... (And if anyone has a recording of the panel, we'd love to share it!)

      Of course, that was the first panel we've ever done, and it could be better. This year, we'd definitely have more Q&A time because that's really what this panel is all about. We want to help YOU start and host successful events, not just talk about our own successes. We'd also probably make the panel a *bit* smaller (4-5 panelists + moderator, instead of 6 + moderator) just so everyone on the panel has an opportunity to contribute.

      So, who's interested in seeing a panel like that? Also, are there any event hosts out there who'd be interested in participating as panelists?

      Good morning everyone!

      RTX SideQuest tickets will go on sale TODAY starting at 3:00PM CDT. You'll be able to get them either through our website at rtsidequest.org/tickets or on our Ticketbud page at rtsidequest.ticketbud.com/rtx-sidequest

      Prices, events, and venues are all the same as last year, though we're working on some cool new additions/bonuses for the All-Access Badge.

      Also, in case you missed out on the first entry in The Quest Log, it's archived at eepurl.com/bhG0ML for everyone to read. Don't miss out next month and make sure you're subscribed at rtsidequest.org/quest-log

    • The Quest Log + Cultivating a Community

      4 years ago

      SideQuest

      The first issue of The Quest Log, our new monthly newsletter, will FINALLY be out later today! Inside will be details on Recently Completed Quests (Events we recently hosted), Active Quests (Confirmed events that are coming up), Pending Quests (Things we're working on), and other information on our community and the charities we support. This month's BIG announcement will be information on RTX SideQuest ticket sales. Quest Log subscribers will be the first ones to know when tickets go on sale, so they'll have a head start! You can still subscribe today before the first issue goes out! rtsidequest.com/quest-log

      Also, I wanted to see if there's interest in another edition of "Cultivating a Community", an RTX panel about hosting community events and such, at RTX 2015 this year. Is that something people would be interested in seeing again? We got a good response last year, but I want to be sure that people are interested before I start assembling a team for a 2015 version.
