NYC Pony Convention Town Hall

  • November 11, 2012 · 9:00 PM

This will be a VIRTUAL MEETING held tonight at 9PM on Skype. Message me ("unixjlb") if you wish to join. ALSO RSVP HERE! Note, please, in a Comment, your Skype username, in case your message doesn't reach me.

The purpose of this meeting is to plan out the large-scale structure and goals of a NYC metro area (NY/NJ/CT) pony convention, now that BronyCon has moved out of the area.

    Was Kezz shipping humans at whatever party he had? Thats what it looks like.

    • MintamenaPie

      Trololo eeyup! XD We went out to Max Brenner (a restaurant that's special to me and Disco) with Kezz and Zorin, then went back to hang out with Kezz's wild friends for about an hour before we had to catch the train. Kezz figured since that's what we were doing while the meeting went on, he'd upload them here. XD

    I don't know what to think, I apologize for not being able to make it. I was busy showing Zorin a good time with Minty and Disco like I'd been planning to for over a week (Not 23 hours!).

    I'll try and find whatever meeting minutes there are-
    But I guess I missed everything, that's my cue to fade into obscurity...

      There are various text streams you can scan, and a recording. PT has links, PT is a tech goddess. It's your cue to at least offer to run cable and find us some djs for the night! Pretty please. But talk to Kar. She is the the genius with a plan. A very fluid plan.

      November 12, 2012

    • Kezzsim

      Sounds good to me~ I'll start my analysis when I'm finished with this assignment

    Considering there's a distinct possibility BronyCon will move back to the NY/NJ/CT area for 2014 or any other future years, I'd strongly suggest you guys aim for a Winter convention, because BronyCon is almost certainly going to be a Summer thang indefinitely. Good luck!

    November 11, 2012

    • Cups

      Nope, I never in any way tried to suggest not having an NYC convention. I simply was suggesting to avoid the summer months, because by default you are ALWAYS in some form of competition with your nearest conventions: few bronies can afford to attend every convention they'd like to. The further away your dates are from other nearby, relevant conventions the more attendance you will get by default, and any action you can take to help make traveling bronies not HAVE to choose between you and BronyCon will help to make sure they can attend both. Of course, if maximizing attendance / drawing in out-of-towners isn't one of your con goals then my point is moot!

    Anypony with concerns/comments should listen to the Town Hall recording first as we most likely already discussed the issue. http://www.justin.tv/theoldgreymare/b/339475211

    It helped to get some great ideas out in the open for the new convention.

    November 12, 2012

  • Sarah - N.

    So, lots of great ideas thrown around tonight and I am very excited! I know we have the right group of people here to pull this off cause, hey, we did it before with only 1/5 this many ponies!

  • Kar

    For anypony wondering, there will definitely be a system of sorts in place during the skype call so that everyone can have their turn to speak uninterrupted. If you do not have a headset mic please check around your area for background noise sources (appliances, tvs, etc) and either move clear of them or turn them off. 25+ bronies on a call is noisy enough without hearing your BG buzz too ^_^

    I'd love to participate, but seeing as my equipment is so old, I don't even have a CD burner, I'd say Skype is out of the question. Not that there's a lot I could contribute, anyway. I'll be keeping an eye out for any updates...PONY ON all! :)

    I just wanna say, I love Baltimore. Great place. Would live there in a instant. But I don't- we should our thing here, cause nyc is epic.

    Actually, I'll try to make it because the more I think about Baltimore the more I ask myself "What the hell is a Baltimore." rainbro.brash is my handle on skype.

      I have nothing against Baltimore, but NYC is too big and awesome not to have it's own con!

      1 · November 11, 2012

    • Kar

      yes we NYers are fiercely proud of our city and I expect Boston feels the same way. There is no reason not to hold a con for our local Bronies and Pegasisters as long as everyone plays fair and not book the same dates :)
