Hi,
Just dropping in to mention that the fan-fueled online exposition known as Quake Expo is happening this year, the 20th anniversary of the original Quake. It's been 5 years since the last one and we don't know why. In past it's mostly Q1 and Q2 stuff, but Q3 content is welcome!

Website: https://qexpo2016.com
Registration opens: May 14
Expo dates: July 16 - July 30

Hope to see some Q3 mappage/ mods/ events represented. If anyone is interested in helping post news, writing an article, or otherwise assisting with the event, please PM me. Of course, news and event submissions will also be possible once registration opens.

In any case, drop by to see what's up with the Q1/Q2 scene... the epic scale, architectural beauty, and ambiance of modern levels may surprise you.

Thanks for moving the post. I'm subscribed and will be glad to answer any questions.

A little more about WHAT Qexpo is- the event is online but based around the concept of "booths" that are open for a limited time, like a traditional exhibition. Often there are also outside events online or even meatspace LAN parties. (Although I haven't been to one myself since 1999...) Ideally it will be a way to bring various Quake facets together to share inspiration.

Cool!
Wouldn't mind giving my single player mod for Quake 3, EntityPlus a little more exposure. Just tell me how :)

Awesome, I played through EntityPlus maps 2 or 3 years ago. Looks like there are some new creations. The manual is beautiful.

How to get a a project in the expo:
1. Register at https://qexpo2016.com/ when the site opens, May 14.
2. Join the 'Booth Creators' group.
3. Members of that group will be updated to 'Author' status.
4. 'Post' a booth with the built-in interface. Booths can be edited any time but will not appear publicly until the expo opens.

Booths may be projects, tutorials, documentation, art, event results, etc.

The process is similar for anyone who wishes to contribute news, writings, or interviews. Just a different group for that. And prolific people may join both groups.

The site is open! https://qexpo2016.com/ :cool: Anyone may register. For people who don't intend to create a booth or event, all site members may post in the activity stream, comment on booths and news, and participate in groups.

Did you see this?

How to get started: Very briefly, go to the ‘Groups’ tab and join the ‘Booth Creators’ , ‘Event Creators’ and/or the ‘Writers and News Authors’ group depending on what kind of content you wish to create. Then post a request in that booth. For more detail see the FAQ link on the side menu.

Q: How do I get a booth?
A: Complete the following steps:

1. Register at https://qexpo2016.com/ between May 14 and July 15. Registration is free.
2. Join the ‘Booth Creators’ group and post a simple message there, like “Hey, I’d like to make a booth.”
3. Members of that group will be updated to ‘Author’ status.
4. ‘Post’ a booth with the built-in interface. Booths can be edited any time but will not appear publicly until the expo opens.
5. Rules: Booths represent individual or team projects, tutorials, documentation, art, event results, or other type of information. Please do not create more than one booth unless you have two completely distinct, well-developed items.
