Pros and Cons
Read, research, rant, review!
|About:||A community for artists, crafters, congoers, and vendors to discuss the pros and cons of certain conventions or shows. Had a great experience? Had a not-so-great experience? Do you have epic tales of awesomeness or cockery? Share them!|
There's no need to limit yourself, as well. If you're not sure about a show's demographic, attendance numbers, table/space sizes, or so on, ask here--we'll try to help you find out more about it. Don't forget about the site animecons.com, too--their convention schedule is pretty extensive.
But what should I post?
Here's a template, snagged from kyabetsu. Feel free to mod/maul/ignore as is applicable:
Demographic: (What ages? What genders? Were there a lot of furries, ravers, or dollfen?)

About the reviewer:
Rules of Thumb: It's not nice to bash sellers. Strictly self-promotional "BUY MY STUFF BUY MY STUFF BUY MY STUFF!" posts will be deleted. (Things like roll calls for shows, setup discussions, or queries about pricing are good--just don't spam us, please. This is not a marketplace.) All-caps or gibberish posts will be assaulted with tentacle monsters. They'll like it even less than you will. Please, think of the tentacle monsters.
