The nice people at Royale on Tremont St. were kind enough to give us the entire upstairs for tonight's Chive Afterparty. No need to get tickets but it is limited space so the sooner you get there, the better.
Chivers who show up wearing a Chive shirt before 11pm will get in for free. If not, there is a small cover. Again, space is limited.
* We also understand the Red Sox game has been moved to 8pm. Yes, there are TV's at the Julep Bar and they will be carrying the Sox game.
See y'all tonight!
We've recently upgraded to the newest version of Disqus (we had no choice) and it's basically the same as the last version. You can still comment without logging in and you can still attach thumbnails to your comments but that process is a little different.
Before you simply put the number of the photo in the comment and the corresponding photo would appear. Yes, I know that was fucking awesome but it's a little different, there are some pros, some cons, and we're working on making it much easier.
To place a thumb in the gallery, just drag the desired photo to your desktop and then into the comment space provided. This is a little big granular but we'll have a fix for it shortly. We're creating a bank of thumbnails that will appear in the sidebar in the comment section. The bank will aggregate all the photos from the gallery you're in and you can drag and drop from there instead of scrolling up and grabbing the photo. Thanks for your patience while we implement this.
There is a big upside. You can place any photo you like in the comments now, well almost any. Instead of your thumbnail choices limited to the 30-40 photos in the gallery, now you have millions of photos to choose from.
Yes, I know the ability to place any photo you like in the comments can be a troll's paradise so I'm relying heavily on the community to flag any inappropriate photos. We have always had an unabated commenting system here at theCHIVE and it's worked out well so far (Unless you call our chivettes one of two words in which case I delete the comment to space). So please remember that we're theCHIVE, and we hold ourselves to a higher standard.
As always, I still read all the emails you send even if I don't respond sometimes. Your input is always taken under heavy consideration - more than you'd think in fact b/c half the time I've got no idea what the fuck I'm doing.
We'll have more comment updates soon as we work out the tweaks and we'll be unveiling theCHIVE's responsive site soon - no major changes, just larger photos, faster load time, and easier navigation.
Onward and upwards,
On November 2nd, we’ll be throwing the inaugural Chive Charities Green Gala right in the heart of downtown Austin at Speakeasy.
It's going to be an incredible night and we are giving Chive Nation the chance to join Chive Charities' key contributors, recipients, and some of our favorite Chivettes of the Week at the private soiree.
Tickets cost $100 and will include entrance to the party, all the KCCO Black Lager you can drink, hors d'oeuvres and live entertainment featuring the Wheeler Brothers and Ben Kweller. Limit two tickets per person.
Come dressed to impress, as the attire is black or green tie or your favorite super hero costume. We've tried to tell Mac that Peter Pan isn't a super hero, but he's having none of it.
There will be plenty of surprises in store, so you won't want to miss this!
Tickets for the inaugural Chive Charities Green Gala are available RIGHT HERE!
