Game selection

Game selection will open on Friday the 23rd of January! It will be a few days before people start being assigned to games, however the sooner you can get your game choices in the better. 

You will also get the chance to specify the one game you don't want to miss out on by assigning it a heart. When it comes to putting people into games, this will be taken into account.   

Here's a preview of the drag and drop game selection interface:

Michelle has confirmed that she will be coming back to cook at Hydra, which we are very happy about. There will be some changes to the menu so keep an eye out for that. We would also like someone to help out in the kitchen on Sunday, if you are interested in talking to me about this please get in contact.

New Website

You may have noticed the site looks a little different.  Its now running on Silverstripe. This should make the website much easier to maintain in the long run, and gives those entering content much more control. It hasn't been smoke tested yet, so please do report any bugs you encounter. I hope there is nothing too major, and we can iron them out over time.  

Because of the requirements of Silverstripe, we have also changed our hosting (and thus, our domain name).  We are now hosted with Digital Ocean

Editing and Tagging Games

If you have submitted a game for Hydra, you now have the ability to edit it. Head to the Run a Larp page, and select your game from the Games submitted menu (you must be logged in to see this).  Or, if your game has been approved, you can edit it from the game's detail page.

Genres can now be added to your games as tags. Tags are separated with spaces - a new tag will be created for each word. If you wish to use multi word tags, use the underscore_format. The underscores will be replaced with spaces in the game detail view. Feel free to tag with any genre you think will be useful for hydra attendees to filter by (see the Games page).
