2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. RebeccaBlackTech restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but we need to import posts from the a contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

Cosplay for hire? Promoting parties.

No.10019628 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Have you guys ever been hired to promote a party or work a party? How much did you make? Do you do it often?

I've been working with a "friend" of mine for a few years promoting his party because I have a very accurate costume that revolves around the event.

He's been putting me on fliers and t-shirts for the event. I've even been in some pretty large magazines due to the interest for his party location (It's kind of a museum for said type of movies.)

Anyway.. I'm not really being compensated in any way and I'm waiting on him to be gracious enough to recognize that I'm putting a shit ton of work into promoting and being at his event.

What do? Similar experiences?
