Yay! UnCon in a week! (I read that right, right?)

April first was always a special board holiday. Maybe we could aim for that week to be UnCon?

I was never told if everyone got their prizes from the last UnCon. Organizing that was such a mess: Mike wanted me to create a list of what I thought everyone should get, then told me that my list was ill-informed without really ever giving me parameters other than "We got a lot of Hasbro product laying around". Then he got tossed and Solace made it way easier, but I still don't know if all the winners got their prizes. Such a shame. I sometimes feel like the problem with prizes specific to that running of UnCon was what killed it. Probably taking too much credit for myself.

Was that the UnCon after the last forum port? If so, I thought that never actually ended up happening.

Nah, it was right before WOTC left the vBulletin forums. Maybe a year or two prior. I've got about a million UnCon links that point to late 2008, and the forum switch-over happened right before Zendikar came out, which was late 2009.

And so people say to me, "How do I know if a word is real?" You know, anyone who's read a children's book knows that love makes things real. If you love a word, use it! That makes it real. Being in the dictionary is an artificial distinction; it doesn't make the word any more real than any other word. If you love a word, it becomes real.

Then somehow either...

A) I missed all the contests with physical prizes like a tool.

or

B) You're a filthy liar and there were no physical prizes.

The FAQ of events
The odd thing is that if you try to reverse navigate from that thread to the CCE forum, it fails to find the area. Because the area apparently doesn't exist. Which makes it quite the mystery as to where this thread actually is on the WOTC site. Anyway, the prize organization thread was in that impossible to get to forum.

That'd be sweet.

Just double check it against google images/tineye.

OK, time to make some proper suggestions which might make this happen. I suggest we create a Convention Committee with three positions:
Convention Overseer - This should probably be a GobO. The person with the power and the vision to make this happen.
Contest Manager - The person who keeps track of the different contest, who is running what, what prizes and awards there are for different things, etc.
Event Manager - The person who keeps track of everything that isn't a prize-awarding contest, such as games, Q&A's, discussion threads, etc.

Then anyone who has an idea for a contest or event submits it to the appropriate manager, who evaluates the ideas and gives a first yes/no. Then the managers bring all the things they approve of to the overseer, who gives final approval and puts together a Convention schedule, which would then be double-checked and approved by both the Managers and the Site Admins, and we'd be ready to roll!

Uncon is amazing, and I'm sad wotc stopped doing it. If the community supports it, we will have UnCon, or some similar event if there are any issues with that name.

I would like to support things like custom titles and badges for contest winners, and things of a similar nature for other events in the future.

Does anyone recall offhand the traditional dates for UnCon?

Custom titles (actual custom titles, not admin-chosen titles) and badges would be real cool.

I think there is a certain charm to admin-chosen titles

user-chosen ones are really forced and uncool

Mine on WOTC was cool. But that was the only one there I thought had any charm to it.

I can't even remember what it was, all I remember was that I liked it through the time I was there.
