February 14th 2011 - Happy Valentines Day.

Happy Valentines Day, everyone! We would like to spread the love, and to show our support for the mate of our Guest of Honor at the same time. We are asking for some financial assistance from the attendees of our event to help get Nightfox over here from Germany so that Tani and Nightfox can be together at Rainfurrest. To do this, we have set up two methods to donate to the cause.

First, we have added the ability to add a "donation" item to your shopping cart in the registration system. This will let you add one or more multiples of 5$ to put forward as much money as you would like to donate.

Second, we have set up the the handy-dandy paypal link below to accept donations! All funds go straight to covering the cost of airfare for Nightfox from his home in Germany to Seattle. Simply fill out the amount, and click the button!


February 14th 2011 - Looking for translators

We would like to announce that we are looking for people to help translate the website into other languages. As you have probably noticed, at the top of the website we have several flag icons, but many of them don't do anything yet. We are wanting to help show our support of the international furry community by trying to get together a team of translators to help us translate the website. Bahanix has helped us a lot by providing a full French translation, and that gets us launched, but we're still looking for people who can help translate other languages, especially German.

If you would like to help us translate the website into another language, please contact us!
