HOW DOES IT WORK?
Since this is likely a lot of folks' first-entry into online conventions, we've created a handy guide to how our convention works! Please be sure to read through this page before asking any questions in #questions-for-staff on the Discord server!
ATTENDING THE CON: WHERE IS IT?
The convention is hosted purely on our official Discord server! There will be both text and three main voice channels for attendees to talk in, post photographs, as well as share their interests! The voice channels will NOT contain a face-cam feature for the safety of our attendees.
RAMCon does not, nor will not have any physical location. We've never hosted an in-person event, nor do we have any plans to for the foreseeable future.
IS THERE A VENDOR HALL/PLACE TO BUY ARTWORK?
Yes! One of RAMCon's main goals is helping artists and creators from all fandoms achieve success!
The vendor hall itself is hosted in the Discord server and will have individual channels for each vendor to feature their artwork and links to their online shops! These channels will be hosted underneath the main channels and will be listed in alphabetical order for easy browsing!
HOW DO PANELS WORK?
Panels and events are hosted via Livestream and are announced on both Twitter and the #announcements channel on the Discord server. These streams are hosted via individual creators on their platforms of choice and can be found in EVENT SCHEDULE.
I'M UNDER 13, BUT I STILL WANT TO ATTEND?
In accordance with Discord's user policy, attendees at RAMCon MUST be 13 years of age or older in order to participate on the convention floor. All attendees under 18 are advised to keep their DMs closed.
Those who are under the age of 13 may not join the Discord server, however they may watch panel streams. Those who are interested in browsing the vendor hall should have a parent or guardian accompany them when browsing the server tables, or may simply use the vendor hall masterlist.
WHAT IS THE RAMCON 2020 ROLE? WHY CAN'T I HAVE IT?
The RAMCon 2020 Role is a decorative role earned by attendees who attended the previous event this past April. It cannot be acquired by newcomers, or reacquired by those who have left and returned. This role doesn't grant any additional access to the server or further benefits, rather it's more of a "souvenir" for previous attendees to hold onto.
Those who attend the October Event will receive a "RAMCon V2" role, which will allow them access into the server during the con. This role will also become decorative after the event and will not be available for acquisition.
IS THERE A FURSUIT DANCE COMPETITION OR FURSUIT MEET?
Currently, the staff do not have a scheduled fursuit meet or fursuit dance competition scheduled for the event. If there is a future event, attendees are more than welcome to apply to host a fursuit dance comp or a fursuit meet. However, the staff do not have the resources to run such events at this time.
