My first vote goes to New York, second goes to Austin. NY because I like the city and Austin because I like it there and also it's more towards the middle of the country.

Okay, so, I understand that you still really don't know me, but this is a fairly far off event. Since at some point I plan on *moving* to Portland, I really wouldn't mind spending some time there beforehand.

tronnocon part 2.

I'm down.  When works for you folks?

Literally all the time. I live just outside of the city, so I can be there whenever you guys choose!


i actually live in the city and am not terribly busy at the moment, so i'd also be able to hang out anytime!
maybe we need to start a separate thread for tronnocon 2?

Really I am most interested in a time, as opposed to a place. Can we at least get a lock on which month it is going to be in? And if you're feeling extra sassy, maybe even which part of the month? (early/mid/late)

Honestly, we'd be better off figuring the location before the month. With the extremely varying weather patterns in different parts of the US, picking the month could eliminate entire locations. For example, I'm not sure I could personally handle anything but NY in, say, July, but if we aimed for a January or something, I'd want to be as far away from the north end of the country if I'm going to actually pay for a vacation.

Well, if those don't work and some of you are interested, Shane is going to visit an uncle (?) in Columbus and I was going to drag him down here to hang out sometime in October? (You'll have to ask him.) Cincinnati isn't all that interesting compared to most places, but if it's early enough in the month, the Renaissance Festival will be going on, and there's some nice museums, a nice zoo, and I know lots of interesting places. I won't be able to put anyone up, but hotels are dirt cheap and we could even go camping or something.

So, I disagree with your reasoning because the date has a much larger impact on who can attend and thus who cares about where it's going to be.

Then again I think I might be the only person who was excluded solely on account of the date this time, so maybe not?

I have to agree with Slick's post above because one of the major factors for attendants is likely to be school/college/university term times and these are different across continents and even countries.

I certainly wouldn't be able to attend if it was in May because that is when my exams are.

Destination doesn't matter to me though, i'll let the knowledgeable people about the cities sort it out.

See we've got this ugly coupled system where timing is more important for some people and location is more important for some people. What to do what to do.

Find out who's actually interested in going one way or the other?

The timing will matter less if only like two or three college/uni folks actively show interest or feel they can afford it next year. If say twenty people confirm interest and fifteen of them are out of college, I have to imagine the ones out of college would have to take precedence as the majority. Conversely, if fifteen out of twenty are still in school, that would make it so that picking the time first would be borderline mandatory.

So how about we get a running count of who is legitimately interested. Just say if you're interested, what timeframe is best for you and where you'd LIKE to go.

For me, I'm definitely interested, though I'd prefer NYC or DC any time from August on. Anything other than NYC or DC, I probably won't be able to make due to budget constraints, though I'm more flexible on the time than the location, I just need time to save up. If we did somewhere further away, I'd be a very tentative maybe, depending on how long I'd have to save and, bluntly speaking, how many people I legitimately care about who are going. No offense, folks, but I don't think most people want to travel 2,000 miles if they're really only interested in seeing one or two of the people who attend.

I am very interested in attending again, but I would have to be before school starts for me next summer/fall. I did notice this year that doing it right at the beginning of August put me in a bad spot financially when it came time to buy textbooks for the semester. Early July would be ideal- time to work during the summer beforehand, time to work before school starts afterward.

As for location, none of them will be any cheaper for me so I don't really mind. I've been to NYC and DC before, but I wouldn't mind visiting again. And I think it would be great to go to California because I've never been there.

NY will still be there next year. No offence, I'd sooner have a con elsewhere so I figure I should just be honest about it since this is the thread for it.

West coast would be a little bit different. So far all of our big meet-ups have been on the east coast. It would be nice to see some new faces.

Fair point. I suppose I should say Northern?

I would like to go to California on the grounds that it has a good percentage of the remaining people I have not met but would very much like to (namely Christophe, Clara, Cathy, Anna, Bryan, Kari, Kieffer among others) and because it would be sufficiently different from Chicago and Toronto.

you don't even know if all of those people want to go. someone should just make a vote, but only for people who would go if the city they're voting for is chosen.

for instance, even if it's here, I already know I'm not going, so I'm not going to vote.

Sorry to be a stuck record on this matter but since we only have this thread to put across our suggestions, I don't want the idea of a west coast con to be forgotten out of inertia on my part.

Dates are tantamount in my case, because I will be going no matter where it is. I think we already ruled out May on everyone's account, which is good, because I will be in Oz. So any time between the beginning of June and the beginning of August, basically.

New York is not my favourite choice. I have been there once or twice (no, I am not counting the airport) and never really had a great experience, but I am 100% for a place that lots of people can make it to, especially if those people can make it a better trip than I had previously.

I am also 100% for the west coast. If we do it in Sandy Eggo and we can swing doing it the same weekend of 2010 I will totally go for ComiCon and just stay. Would be so excellent.

(I am also 100% for a full scale GlasgaeCon and AustinCon as well. Like I said, location ain't no thang.)

If me and Kat are able to make it time wise we are seriously up for wherever (US/Canada of course). The location is maybe 10% of the reason I go to these. On the other hand, for pure cost reasons for those involved and the location of a majority of forumites I really can't in good faith suggest the West Coast.

Also, we really do need to get the poll added to this thread so we can actually get this sorted out rather than bicker about it. I'll also bring up a time frame with Kat since she's the one we need to work around. Just keep in mind our opinion in this whole affair might be entirely moot depending on what happens grad school wise for Kat.

I could very easily attend a West Coast con, and with some difficulty could attend an East Coast con. While I don't work in hotels anymore because it is a terrible place, my parents do have timeshare property all over the US that they are willing to give out to family for free stay. So depending on where we go, I may be able to go if I can get a free hotel room and only have to pay for travel. Also, I could put some people up as well.

Okay. So now that we've had debate, I'm going to initiate voting, but it's not going to be a straight "vote for what you want". We're gonna do this mad official.

Voting Round 1

WHERE CAN YOU ATTEND?


Vote in this poll for the options that you can attend, assuming it's held in a time in which you can attend anywhere. DO NOT VOTE ON YOUR PREFERENCE. JUST WHICH CITIES YOU CAN GO TO.

If some of you are so worried about a lot of these being so east coast and others are worried they can't go if it's west coast because it's so far away, then pick something in the middle of the country. The two cities suggested so far being close to center are Austin and Denver. Both are cheaper than flying from one coast to another and would also be a change from the north eastern corner of the US. Austin is a pretty cool city and from what I've heard Denver is as well.

Also, we can have cons more than once a year and in more than one location. The smaller ones are just as fun as the big ones.

The location is maybe 10% of the reason I go to these.
See this is how I feel about location. It is more a 'can we feasibly get there' than a 'I really like this city'. Even though I do have a big crush on San Francisco.

If some of you are so worried about a lot of these being so east coast and others are worried they can't go if it's west coast because it's so far away, then pick something in the middle of the country. The two cities suggested so far being close to center are Austin and Denver. Both are cheaper than flying from one coast to another and would also be a change from the north eastern corner of the US. Austin is a pretty cool city and from what I've heard Denver is as well.

Except we haven't done one of these big meetups in the North eastern corner of the US, which is part of why I haven't attended one. Toronto and Chicago are both hella far for me (Toronto was worse as it was either a nine/ten hour drive or a flight that was more expensive than going to freakin' England would've been) and I don't really count Boston so much as that was essentially three folks I'd never met sleeping on my floor for a couple days plus Shane and my girlfriend.

Austin and Denver are honestly, to me, not as appealing as California from an East Coaster's perspective as California seems to have a lot more to do and isn't much farther or more expensive than SF or SD.
