Default FnordCon 4?

So, with less than a week to go, when are we likely to see the schedule published for FnordCon 4?

And, on a similar note, why are the threads for FnordCons 2 & 2.3, both last updated over a year ago, still stickied at the top of this forum?

And I see that, as of today, the schedule has been updated. Thanks!

I have a is Discord account which I've never used. I'm completely unfamiliar with the app (MacOS) and web interface. I see that FnordCon 4 is coming up and is going to cover an especially exciting topic...miniatures .stl files for TFT! So, I'd like to participate. However, I have no idea how to do that. The announcement in the newsletter just seem to assume that everyone already knows, so I'm a little lost and any help would be appreciated.

I guess the first step would be to get yourself invited to the FnordCon Discord channel. I couldn't see any way for me to invite you, but I suspect SJGames will make a join link available soon.

Once you're in the channel, you'll be fine.

Do you think that session will be recorded so I can listen to it later?

Whew! Ok, just by hit-or-miss, I noticed that the Fnord 4 banner at the top of the page which leads to the schedule is a hot link. When I clicked on it, I was sent to the Dischord page. There, I got a message that the invitation was invalid (I assume because the server hasn't been activated yet). All of this is conjecture because there are no actual instruction anywhere. Can someone confirm that that is the correct link? http://discord.gg/9MQ27QD2

Afaik, no official FnordCon recordings have ever been made, and private recordings remain private.

It was invalid for me as well. My guess is that link is from the previous FnordCon and it has expired. No doubt they'll make a proper link available when they're ready to go live.

The new invite link has not been created yet, and will be posted on the schedule and social media tomorrow.

Which session will cover that topic? I don’t see any such mentioned on the schedule.
