Here we go. Tickets for theCHIVE’s Official Austin Meetup are available right here. We’ll be pouring ourselves into the Rattle Inn this Thursday from 7-10pm local time.
This is an open bar. Your ticket includes all-you-can-guzzle liquor and beer all night. As usual, we’re not making a dime on the event, these meetups are what bring us all together and we don’t think anything is more important than raising a glass with Chivers and getting your input on what you like, as well as what we can change. You must be 21 to attend.
*Disclaimer* Mac has been invited to the event. One of his cats has relatives in the Austin area and we thought it would be rude to leave him and Sparkleton von Sparklebark at home.
The Rattle Inn is a large space so this will be our biggest meetup ever. Tickets available RIGHT HERE. Get them while you can!
UPDATE #1: Some tickets remain but going fast…
UPDATE #2: Tickets are SOLD OUT. We are trying to open up an additional 100 tickets. If that happens we will release them tomorrow at Noon Central Time.
UPDATE #3: Look like we’re gonna be able to pull this off. Another 100 tickets tomorrow at Noon Central Time!
To date, the Chivers have donated $55,000 to the MFD… unbelievable. You can still donate right here.
theCHIVE is always striving to make your mobile experience better and better and we are stepping up our game and hiring two in-house developers for iOS and Android. We have been outsourcing development of our apps since day one and we have heard your requests for bug fixes and new additions loud and clear and we’re hitting the accelerator. If interested and qualified for either of the mobile developer positions, please click HERE to learn more.
– If your iOS app is force closing upon opening after the latest revision 1.5, you may have to uninstall and re-install it. We know this is a bitch and not the best workaround, but it will work and it’s a necessary evil. The old version was storing too much information locally on your device and this will essentially “clear your cache” and this is the first and last time you’ll ever have to do this. Click HERE to download v1.5
– A new Android version is coming out by the end of the month
- Animated GIFs! I swear on Mac’s virginity
– The ability to upload photos directly from your phone
– Cross platform sign-on and commenting
– Captions and text will be present on the apps
– The ability to locate and connect with Chivers in the real world (this is why we ask for your location and you’ll be able to turn this feature ON/OFF)
Your suggestions are always welcome and thanks again for your patience. KCCO!
Tomorrow at noon CST, tickets for the much-anticipated official Austin Meetup will be available. For those of you were were there for our impromptu 4th of July meetup, you already know how much fun this is going to be. This time, I’m bringing the whole Chive crew with me. We’ll fill you in on all the details tomorrow.
We are also looking for an after-party venue. Please email us at thechivesubmit [at] gmail [dot] com if you’re interested in hosting that event. Please only email us if you work at the potential venue. Reason being, you’ve never seen a bartender so frightened to see hundreds of Chivers steamroll a bar at midnight with no heads-up. It’s kind of hilarious.
