Pax South 2015 was amazing. San Antonio's weather was a bit petulant at first with cold rain on arrival. That quickly cleared up and most of the convention was sunny and warm. Several CurseForge team members attended to meet with our client users, authors and community members. As a way of giving back to the community and a great excuse for good food CurseForge sponsors dinner at the conventions we attend. For Pax South our dinner was held at Texas de Brazil a Brazilian Steakhouse with all you can eat steaks, filet, and bacon. There were also some vegetables somewhere.
We had 30 seats and ended up expanding to 40 seats. And with Pax East just a few weeks away we plan to do it again.
We have had a couple issues at the past 2 dinners with people not knowing the dinner was occurring and not getting their invitation. To prevent this for Pax East we'd like to get an idea of who would like to go with us. We have not decided on the location for Pax East yet since we need to know how many guests before we can make a reservation.
If you would like to be on the list for invites please fill out this 3 question survey with some form of contact information for us to send the invite to. You can choose what to answer and what contact information you want to give us if any. Community members with valid contact information will have a higher chance of getting an invitation to future CurseForge dinners at conventions. Twitter and Curse accounts are valid contact options if you prefer not to give us your email. This is not only open to authors, community members are welcome too.
Once we have an idea how many people want to join us for food and drinks we'll make a reservation and send out invites. It will be some form of steakhouse or other traditional restaurant type. There will be vegetarian and gluten-free options available.
If you have any questions feel free to contact [email protected] .

Half of the CurseForge team is headed to Pax South Jan 22-26th. During this time approvals may take slightly longer than normal, especially during the 10pm to 10am shift (CST). We will still be checking the queues and approving files, but we will be away from our computers with only hotel internet to rely on, so delays may occur. If you are going to be at Pax South, come find us and say hi. Or RSVP for the CurseForge Dinner.

The CurseForge Team gets a lot of satisfaction from improving our service to mod developers and players. Over the course of the last few months the team has been revamped and schedules shifted to ensure someone on the team is available 24/7. While the team plans to continue to keep this schedule in place, we are fast approaching the holiday season. Here in the states it starts Thurs, Nov 27th with the roasting of a turkey, overeating and spending time with family (whether we want to or not). On the 27th, approval times for files will be partially determined by how annoying our family members are. The faster they are approved, the more likely we are hiding from crazy Aunt Edith or our mother's "When do I get grandchildren" line of questioning. Should our family time be nice, files may take longer than the average to process and approve. On the following day Nov 28th file process times may also be delayed depending how long the food comas last. Dec 2-6 file approval times will be affected by the annual company Christmas dinner and shenanigans involving dragons, elves and water balloons. Dec 24th and 25th will also be slower as again societal norms insist we spend time with family members. Once the annually required family affection and "quality" time has passed, the griffons and dragons will be back at work and regular approval times will recommence.
File processing delays: Nov 27th-28th, Dec 2nd - 6th and Dev 24th - 25th
For problems not related to file processing/approval:
Absolute Emergency (dragons burnt the town, villagers are rioting) private message : CFEmergency Admin
Normal Emergency (gremlins, imps and evil pixies) contact: Support Desk
We will still be watching, but response time will be delayed. Happy Holidays to everyone.
