Dragon*Con NEVER runs out of tickets...
Who's in jail, hasn't been involved with any aspect since 2000, and cannot be legally forced to sell his shares. But don't let that stop you from using a logical fallacy for your argument.
Dragon*Con allows you to purchase next year's tickets at the con itself. The only mad dash is for hotel rooms.That's bullshit and backwards. You are giving priority attendance to people who are already at the convention, making it very difficult for people to go who were unable to go last year, or never able to go before. If anything, they should sell them far away from the convention at another place so if you go this year, it is very difficult for you to go next year.

Nah. In my opinion, conventions that have the same set attending every year stagnate and get increasingly boring over time. No new attendees means no new staff, no new ideas, and a slow, lingering death.
I'll yield to your far superior con experience.But... hasn't Connecticon been offering next year registration on sundays for years now? It seems to be doing ok. Is that an exception?
Yea the same people keep going to the convention it stagnates.. Sooo by that logic Rym and Scott should skip a few PAXes just to keep it fresh.

We want to see different people each time. If it's the same every year, we probably will get bored and stop going. So far, not.
They had a really small room this year at East, PAX might be shuffling them off.
Technically that rule applies 200% to the entertainment even more so than the attendees. Maybe 50% to the staff.

We rarely duplicate lectures, and basically have something new every PAX. Lately, we haven't even duped between Prime and East!
AGGGGGGH, talking about 130k people at an event that clearly is around 20k is annoying to read.
