First of all, thank you to everyone who emailed this week to show appreciation for the comic. You didn’t have to, but you did it anyway. I was attempting to respond to them for a while, but after the sixth bout of answering a hundred emails, only find that during that time I have received one hundred and fifty more, I just gave up. I don’t know how many emails I got, I lost count somewhere between one and ten-thousand, but although I couldn’t respond to them all, I did make an effort to read them all.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about Winter-een-mas. I am in the process of setting up a massive FAQ that should answer all of your inquiries, as well as a whole bunch of new information for this year. In the meantime, you can check out last year’s write-up found here, for some preliminary info.
Winter-een-mas is going to pretty big this year. I’ve gotten word from a few video-game store managers that are interested in holding Winter-een-mas contests and tournaments. If you manage, or work at an establishment that is planning on organizing some sort of Winter-een-mas event next month, feel free to email me with the information. I will try to compile a list of locations where things may be happening in celebration of Winter-een-mas, so gamers can congregate at aforementioned places.
That being said, I must stress that I will list public events only, being held in a public extablishment like a game store or LAN center. That means don’t send me an email that you’re having a LAN party in your basement and you want me to announce it.
Furthermore, I know many of you are anxious for Winter-een-mas, but please don’t forget that the season doesn’t get going until January. We have enough to worry about right now with all of those other holidays.
The actual Winter-een-mas holiday is always the last seven days of January, the 25th through the 31st.
I hope to be able to show you the Winter-een-mas shirt designs later on this evening.
