THE VDF VISION!
The VDF Vision
The FirePony community is very excited to bring you Virtual Del Fuego, a free virtual and communal burn space to be held on a new website Memorial Day Weekend!! The VDF website will be a blank canvas for participants to express themselves, with a calendar of events and access to a variety of "Jitsi" video-stream and chat rooms such as Center Camp (general chat), the Backfield (adult chat), Open Camping, Sanctuary, and Theme Camps room(s). Theme Camps are encouraged to apply for their own room(s) to create and share art, content, and host events all weekend long!
VDF is using an open source platform called Jitsi which is similar to the ubiquitous “zoom room” we have all gotten to know. Integrated Jitsi rooms will provide infrastructure rooms andTheme Camp rooms. Open Camping rooms will be available for participants not affiliated with a Theme Camp to schedule and host events. The Jitsi App is available to download from Google Play and the App Store so you can burn on the go. Participants that want to use a different platform are encouraged to schedule events and share their links to whatever platform they prefer. The VDF website will be Gravatar compatible.
Theme Camps should start planning NOW. Theme Camp applications will be open soon! At VDF, Theme Camps that have applied will have a website-integrated Jitsi room(s) waiting for them to access and use throughout the weekend. Theme Camps are encouraged to hold various events and be creative with your camp downtime (start creating those playlists and background images now!). Theme Camps will want to provide an image to identify their camp room(s) on the website.
Multiple open camping rooms will be available for scheduling events for participants who are not part of a theme camp. Other rooms will include Center Camp, Backfield, Sanctuary, Greeters, and Moderanger HQ. And any other rooms the community can think up!
Volunteer schedules will be coming soon for Greeters, Moderangers, and Sanctuary! Department leads needed!! Express your Interested in joining the team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
On Saturday afternoon there will be a “Build Your Own Pony” event using whatever you have in the house (toilet paper rolls, anyone?) and a Communal Pony Burning at 0:dark30!
NO SOUND POLICY
Sound camps can rage it as loud and as long as they want!!!
