Post-That Con feedback

So we got feedback from That Con because they like to do surveys and all that.  While I am sure they have more than enough to deal with on the fandom end, by statistics, we did fine.  Out of 66 respondents, about 3 were rather scathing and hurtful.  So, cathartically, I am posting them here.  It is a realization that if my work with That Con is going to continue, I have to really look inside myself and figure out what is going on.  Is it burnout?

Convention Poll – My take on it

I recently posted a poll on FB in hopes to find out reasons for gamers not attending.  Both our ConCarolinas and ConGregate efforts were less than stellar.  Although ConCarolinas is considered a rebuilding year, ConGregate was a third try and

After Action Report: My Return to ConCarolinas
