Remember, if you have something you’d like to contribute to the Flame or Announce, use Flipside Flame/Announce Submission page to send it in. Announce tends to be near the beginning of the month, and Flames usually get published around the middle of the month. Get me the info at least a week before then, and I’ll do my best to get your contribution included.


What’s Your Camp Got Going On?

Here are just a couple of opportunities for you to be a part of the gears that make this town GO!

Ever wondered about who helps keep the city safe?

Are you introverted and need a little bit of time to recharge away from the big crowds?

Do you want to know how night vision works?

Come check out the Guardians Department!
Badass shirts and patches to be had if you work a couple shifts with us.

Contact Froggy at

(Area: Safety –> Guardians (perimeter))
Or our Facebook page: Guardians of Flipside 

 -Froggy, your Guardians Lead

 Greeters Wiki is OPEN.

Hey beautiful!

We love when a Theme Camp takes over a whole shift.
Shift Leads bear some responsibility for tracking down their shiftmates.
Greeter Captain of the day can also help with that.
Only the craziest people sign up for Shift Lead or Captain.
You know you’re ready to walk on the wild side!
We have some early entry spots still available.
Some restrictions apply.
Speak to your pharmacist or contact your Greeter Lead (Area: Genesis –> Greeters) for details.
Offer not valid in Alaska or Hawaii.

 Signs!  Signs!  Everywhere a Sign!

And we like it that way.  Signs tell you where you are at.  Signs tell you where you’re going.  Do you want to tell the people of Pyropolis where to go?  I know I do!

You can help spread the signage love, at Church Nights (Wednesdays in April after 7:00 at Lloyd the Warehouse*).  We need sign devotees and sign initiates to sign-up and sign-in the signs for Flipsign.  Wait, no Flipside.  Sorry.  There will be paint, so consider your costume well.
We also need people on-site the weekend before Flipside to help install the signs.  To help, you MUST be signed up to be on site that weekend.

Contact Emily your City Signage Lead (Area: City Planning –> City Signage)  with your real name, so she can make sure you are on the list, or to ask any questions.

*If you don’t know where Lloyd the Warehouse is, it will amuse me if you google “Lloyd the Warehouse” for completely benign reasons.  Or fine… go here.

Rachel the Flagging Lead Presents: Fun With Flags

You know those little flags that welcome you home to your theme camp?  Do you want to help welcome all the theme camps home?  

Flagging is a great way to reconnect with the land in its eerie silence and pristine beauty before all the people get there and wreck it.  It’s also a great way to literally learn the lay of the land.  

Flagging happens the weekend before Flipside, and you MUST be signed up to be on site that weekend.  Interested?  Contact Rachel The Flagging Lead™   and let her know your RealName™ and she’ll keep you up to date on the final details.

(Area: City Planning –> Flagging)


Theme Camp Registration is CLOSED

But, don’t be a stranger!  If things in your theme camp change, keep your Theme-camp Liaison, Bonnie, in the loop!  The sooner we know, the better we can make it for everyone!  We are working hard to make sure the city is designed for awesome, so contact us if you have any significant changes in structures, number of campers, etc., or if you just want to tell us we’re pretty.  I’m okay with that too.

Updates? Contact Bonnie, your Theme-camp Liaison:  Theme Camp Liason (Area: City Planning –> Theme Camp Liasion)
