Conventions

For thoose interested in running a convention.


Don't.

I am miffed right now.

Why?

Cause i was just called dick, and insulted in other way by person B because i sent a private email to person A.

My email seams to have been taken wrong.



*** letter start ***
Hey Kave,


Ummm.
How to be polite while explaining a point of view....

Communicate.

Its just you had the informal meeting at the con. And were saying how we were going to be having a meeting relatively soon so we can sit down and start making decisions.

Next thing i know Adam is posting on the anivasion list how he and you i assume were goinig down saturday to sign a hotel contract.

then i talked with adam about how things were being layed out for doing the con at the hyatt.

Now its the Hilton.

While yes the tables is a very persuasive point.
Cosplay isn't really the point. We had enough room for cosplay this year with 750.

We were short on the other spaces. Video rooms. Panel rooms. Art and game rooms.

And the dealers room.

Its just i don't know. Yes you are the con chair and scott is the vice con chair.
That is fine but when you start saying stuff like the line
"This was made by Scott, Adam, Aaron, Dommi, and myself."

Its very elitist? Its the con-chairs, hotel relations which makes sense in the decision making.
But why Guest Relations and not Live Events, Dealer, or game rooms, etc.

I know this is probably still hell time with you at work and in the end i'm glad we have a hotel that we are going to be at.
And as i said before the Hilton does sound like it is the better deal.

Just that the email came accross a tad bit strong.

Here's looking forward to 2003.

**end letter ***


I send this and so far haven't gotten a reply from him. though It looks as if he has shared my email with other people.

The response pissed me off largely in the first paragraph.

"And especially you Godai, no offese but
Jon isn't an "elitist" because he let the people who actuall EFFECT the
con decide where the con is being held. You run the gophers section, last
I checked all that was needed as far as space goes for the "gopher king"
is Con Ops and Registration, and that's all taken care of.
"

Yes i was head of gophers this year. but what happened at the con.
I freaking worked my ass of to keep things going.
No one ran Registration. I'm there at 10 or so trying to get my gophers that have shown up and found out there was no one to run registration.

So i ended up doing part of registration. Fortunately Dan was there. Dan is the cons accountant and ended up running registration. and getting it better organized then i could at the time.

but i spent the entire con running back and forth trying to keep everything working.
Making sure volunteers were where they were supposed to.

And here i am getting criticized by basically saying what i did doesn't affect the con by the VIDEO GAME GUY WHO YELLED AT ATTENDEES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HALL. TELLING ME WE SHOULD ALL BE MORE PROFFESSIONAL.

THIS IS SO FUCKING BULLSHIT.

Of course i can't write back to the list pointing this out cause its playing childish games which as one of the con-chairs pointed out is bad.

But of course this leaves me frustrated.
