There's a discussion going on in a locked post of a dear friend of mine
regarding Noncon. She has several legitimate gripes regarding the way the
convention committee has acted in (mis)communicating with her in the past.
The topic is resurfacing in fairly general terms for a good reason. What
surprised me is some of the other people who posted in response also
expressing their dissatisfaction with Noncon. For some of these people I
don't know what they're unhappy about. I'd like to.
So I'm opening the floor. Please, if you have any issues with things which
have been done regarding Noncon in the past, tell me. I'm no longer involved
with the convention. I won't pass it to anybody else if you don't want me to.
But I expect there will come a time when I'm involved in organizing this event
again, and I'd like an opportunity to learn from our collective mistakes.
This post is public so people who aren't on my friends list can see it and
respond. If you want to reply but aren't comfortable doing so publicly, send
me an email or IM. (Same username as here at AIM or gmail)
I especially encourage responses regarding things I, personally,
have done, but I want to know about anything which has happened which might
discourage someone from coming back. I also welcome any reasons you may have
had for considering attending Noncon but ultimately deciding not to.
Discussions of these sorts of issues seem to keep cropping up around me, and
more information is definitely better.
