Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, he's done it>the way they handled panels was super unprofessional
I wish i was on the board because I genuinely have no idea what happened
You could make a playbook with how many complaints there were last year, but they ignored almost all of them and jacked up the prices to put the cherry on top.
He's way too prideful to give up control of the convention but seriously dude if you ran it at such a loss that you have to up the prices without upping the quality then please pass the torch. People didn't always hate you.
Hobbyist communities are so, so, so feedback-focused, you can't just ignore people. It's so infuriating too, because it's not a big con so in the broad view of things it doesn't matter, but it's the only local con here so I care about its success and it hurts me to see it failing.
And the worst part is I feel like I can't approach the people in charge with advice or offers to help because they'll ignore me.
I mean look at their panel management team: rym and scott have a proven track record--in the past they've organized panels at such events as pax, yet ctcon panels are shit now--it has to be because they're bing micromanaged.
