It's here! The Anthrocon 2017 website is now up and running. The design is by Cuprohastes, who we thank for the excellent work!

In addition to this change, we are well underway with our Anthrocon 2017 preparations. The first one is Registration. Except that to open later this month.

Have you never attended Anthrocon before, but are thinking of doing so for the first time in 2017? You may want to check out our New To Anthrocon section of the website.

Just 266 days left until Anthrocon 2017 is here. Smiling

It's such a pleasant shade of green.

Reminds me of Chickensmoothie.

Which I'm going to go visit now!

The ground crew has finished dressing the field; the park organist is ready to start playing.  The hotdog and peanut vendors are stocked up and out in the stands.  Time to open the gates and let the crowd through the turnstiles!

There we go! Now the big IF: Have the Pirates posted their home game schedule yet? You think we can get Ted Giannoulis to attend the game with us, if there happens to be a home game during Anthrocon?

We have yellow ad black in the site header - I was trying to stay with colours that were easy on the eye. Yellow's bold brassy and bright and eye watering Eye-wink

No surprise that the site has a green background, considering the theme for next year.

I'm really looking forward to AC 2017.  I'm really pleased with the theme chosen!  I already have an art submission for the conbook ready! (I'll have more planned soon! Eye-wink )

I also have a few ideas for Opening and Closing Ceremonies.  For Opening Ceremonies, they could introduce the Board of Directors in the same way baseball players are introduced when a baseball game starts.  It could go something like this:

"Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, home of Anthrocon 2017!  And now, your Anthrocon 2017 BOOOAAARD OF DIRECTOOOORS!!!

At Programming, <badge number>, Chiaroscuro!

At Art Show, <badge number>, Peter Cat!

At Social Media, <badge number>, Giza!

<Board of Director introduction continuing up to Uncle Kage>

And at Conchair, your team Captain, <badge number> UNCLLLLEEEE KAGEEEEEEEE!!!!!!"

And Opening Ceremonies officially begins.

For Closing Ceremonies, I thought it'd be a fun idea if they could have a "Guess The Attendance" game, the same way certain baseball games have "Guess The Attendance" games for attendance at their ballparks.

Just thought I'd throw in some ideas, in case there's interest. Smiling

Gen. Talon is right. Eye-wink

I ought'a know.  At Furpocalypse (formerly FurFright) I'm one of the guys who helps erect the curtains! Smiling

Thank you, everyfur who attended Highwing's, Skarlath's, and my Zootopia panel!  We hope that you had as much fun attending it as we did producing it!  Will we do it again this year?  Yes!  (Day and time TBD.)

I notice that the BOARD, STAFF, and CONTRIBUTOR, (especially CONTRIBUTOR) titles impinge a bit onto the "text area".

At least with my browser (Firefox), and screen settings.  And on my S5 (Chrome).

I've been int he fandom for 24 years. I've heard all the 'Furballs' jokes all ready.

All of them.

And no, that's not a challenge to come up with new ones.

Congratulations to Cuprohastes. He could be in charge for the graphic design of an actual sports magazine or website.
