The July 17th post regarding the announcement by Jason, the con-chair for Vericon, in this community has produce a large amount of discussion within the comments section of that post (53 as a few minutes ago).
If you were involved in this thread early on, you might want to go back and see what Jason has said in response to the feedback you have given him.
I'm just the community maintainer here, food coordinator for the convention in '05 and '06 for the consuite/green room, and occasionally the 'messenger' who passes along information.
Because threading becomes complex here on LJ when comments get numerous, I would suggest that folks who have new responses to the announcement might want to make additional posts and comments outside of the ongoing extension of the 17th's post to ensure that is seen and read. Additionally after a few days folks often fail to follow any one specific message's threading (and LJ has a nasty tendency to forget to send out notifications of comments randomly). This will help what you have to say be more likely to be seen and responded to.
I'd also ask that folks try to stay somewhere near on topic of Vericon Guests, Policies, Planning, Problems etc. and not onto tangents that are rather far or completely off topic. (I think this is the only time I've ever had to ask that of folks as moderator, and the last couple of days is the most traffic this community has seen since it was created).
