1. Read the Howto Guide

There is a lot to know! http://pillowfightday.com/howto

2. Create an account

If nobody is hosting a pillow fight in your city, or you are the organizer every year, visit the new user page and choose a name and e-mail address. Follow the directions.

Change your password at the profile page

3. Create a new post

Go here: to the Add Post page.

4. Writing the name of your city for the list

+ Use the name of your city as the post title, which goes in the long, skinny text box at the top of the Add New Post page.

+ You may use either the English name for your city, or the local name for your city. For example, either Milan or Milano is acceptable. If it’s a well-known city, you don’t need to add the country name. If it’s an American state, use the two-letter initial. Examples: Toronto – Des Moines, IA – Eppenberg, Germany.  

5. The information about your pillow fight

Click the “HTML” tab on the top right of the text input box. Copy and paste this code into it:

<img src=http://www.pillowfightday.com/images/Thumb.jpg height=128 width=128 hspace=5 vspace=5 align=left>
<strong>Time</strong>: 3:00pm
<strong>Location</strong>: LOCATION
<strong>Host</strong>: HOST
<strong>Facebook</strong>: <a href=http://yourwebsite.com>Facebook Event</a>

Feel free to add other fields such as directions, your website, etc.

If you want to use a custom thumbnail for the image:
+ Use the image uploader here: http://www.pillowfightday.com/thumbs/thumb.php
+ It is recommended you resize the image in Photoshop to 128×128 before you upload it, but the script can do that for you too.
+ Take the address it gives you and replace it in the example code above

  1. Is there a costume theme again this year? People in Portland, Maine had a blast with the “Superheros vs. Supervillians” last year :)

  2. My family of 15 are traveling to Phoenix, AZ especially for the pillow fight. However, I can’t find Phoenix on the list, if or where it will be held, or the organizer.
    Help?
