    Growtix Issues

    Often, I had to log in to the site multiple times in order to access whatever information I was looking up. I'd log in, then go to the class or game list or whatever, and it would decide I was not logged in. It is not obvious from the landing page you end up on after logging in how to get back to the ReaperCon event pages and have the system continue to consider you logged in. When submitting events, either classes or games, it's just good practice for the confirmation email to contain the details of what was submitted. It should include the content entered into every field on the submission form. The confirmation emails from GrowTix have just the name of the event and then the generic ReaperCon text. When submitting classes, there were fields to fill out that included things like what level a class was intended for (beginner, intermediate, etc.), whether it was going to be a lecture/demo or hands on class, and skills that a student should already have in order for the class to be most useful to them. This information was not visible in either the class listings or the detail pages for classes, and it should be. As an event runner, it would be useful to have events you are running, whether they be classes or games, show up on your schedule. Treating classes and games as completely different entities causes problems later when somebody is trying to figure out what their overall schedule is. It would be better if it was just one list of events that included everything available for registration. The overall usability of the site is very bad. If you have to provide detailed instructions and walk-throughs on how to perform tasks that are the primary intended use of the system, that is a usability failure. If the purpose of the site is to allow people to enter events, buy badges, and sign up for and purchase tickets for those events, it should be designed such that it is obvious how to perform those tasks successfully. It should also provide feedback that clearly indicates what your status through that process is - whether you are actually registered for an event or if it is just on your 'wish list', etc.

    D&D at ReaperCon?

    There's also a board game library with a selection of games available.

    Okay, what are the dates for the Con 2019?

    Is the convention rate also available to people who aren't Facebook users?

    MASTER PAINTERS 3-5 words biography HELP PLEASE

    No, they are different people.
  6. Krylon makes a low-odor spray finish which I've used on painted Bones figures without getting any tackiness. The low odor formula leaves out some of the things that seem to interact badly with Bones.
  7. I like Dark Elf and Dusky triads both for steel NMM.
  8. Just finished her up. Well, the pictures show I need to do just a hair of touch up, but this is pretty much as she'll be.

    Advice to painting teachers

    This, a whole lot. This is the first ReaperCon I taught at, and I am not an experienced teacher. I am sure that everything did not go totally awesome in all my classes for all my students. However, I want to get better at it and am trying to get better at it. In order to do that I need practice, but also constructive criticism and feedback.

    Suggestions for a lamp?

    I bought one of the rechargeable Ott Lites. It worked fine for a month, then the length of time for which it'd hold a charge declined rapidly. Then one day it started smoking and stopped working completely. It was three or four months from when I got it to when it died. Also, it was very heavy, so even if it were still working I'm not sure I'd want to travel with it.
  11. This year, the Origins painting competition was a Crystal Brush qualifier run by CoolMiniOrNot.

    How do you paint Drow skin?

    dks did at least a couple of topics where he talked about how he does dark elf skin, if you can find them. I'm pretty sure he used browns.
  15. Just finished this guy up.
