    2. As long as horse-news and brony fandom exists in some form, retards will keep beating the dead horse.

  3. Not dying, Saurian. It's evolving. Needs a new spot on the East Coast.

  6. When you're pushing the same experience over and over again without trying to get new people into the loop this happens...

    1. It seems they were also having trouble with getting staff. Not sure if there's any reason for that but from an attendee perspective you are right. They really did seem to struggle to get VIPs after 2015 or 16.

    2. I'm vaguely familiar with how the convention circuit works (I've staffed two pony conventions, one of which was slightly more impressive than registration) but from my experience staffing pony projects and websites there is a very cliquish nature of bronies. Not only is getting into that clique insanely difficult but a lot of times they don't want to replenish their numbers. I'm not 100% sure about BronyCon but the lead staffers who mutually followed me on Twitter kind of had that cliquish/egotistical vibe about them.

    3. That being said, I've been to BronyCon once in I think 2014. Out of all the pony conventions I've been to it ranks the lowest. I've not put much thought into why but given the interest I might go into that.

    4. You hit the nail on the head with the cliquish mentality. There are troves of bronies out there that would be willing to step up and take the shoes. Bronies have always been ones to step up. There's no shortage of that in the fandom. It really just comes down to pride. No one wants others to "ride the coattails" of their legacy, or would rather end their legacy in a prime rather than watch it turn into something else. I always said the old guard is what's killing the con over the years. And now they have voted to actually end it without seeing what the tight knit community around it wants to see.

    5. Which I agree. I see no problem with a BronyCon 3.0 as long as people are happy and the convention has something fresh. It isn't going to be the early con where it was merely a hundred people.

      While I also agree the old guard isn't helping there are plenty of factors that go into the convention's decline. I could see BronyCon remaining a stagnant three to four thousand people for many years to come as long as it's balanced as such. Many conventions (including Fiesta Equestria that I've staffed for three years) tend to be built upon making it huge quick rather than realizing a lot of people would only go once and accept they've had their fill of the pie.

      Officially I've left the fandom last year but still keep tabs just to learn just in case I jump into a similar fandom. To me, bronies don't seem to be the marketable type. The only people willing to go to BronyCon are those that already have a vested interest. So if those who joined the fandom when it was 'mainstream' in 2012 are finally moved on there's no way to boost the attendee count either.

      I might of gone off tangent with the 'staff needing help' part, whoops.

    6. Other than the cliquish nature the only real problem with a revival is competition since don't Galacon/Trotcon happen around the same time as well?

      Either way if they really were having trouble with volunteers it makes me wonder what happened.

    7. The best I can come up with is that most of these conventions are built to try and promote tourism rather than cater to the local bronies. I don't believe 10,000 bronies live in the Baltimore area. That being said that door swings in both directions. We're looking at trying to get both attendees AND volunteers to try and go.

      Most of the conventions I've staffed tend to be the variety that aren't on the primary convention circuit so how those operate I believe are different from obviously BronyCon. Those conventions often were riddled with organizational issues and weren't well run. Though at the same time compensation wasn't defined and for many people a mere convention badge was probably not enough.

      I'd like to say competition is a problem, but I think the tourism issue outweighs it.

  10. Proof the fandom is dying and most likely will be dead by 2020. I never went and I'm glad I didn't.

    1. I'm honestly surprised it's lasted this long. It's been 8 years and the show hasn't been good since season 2... The energy isn't there anymore. The passion and life is gone. The only people left in the MLP fandom are hardcore autists who have nothing else int their life going on

  14. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.

    I do believe that you need to publish more about this subject matter, it might
    not be a taboo subject but typically folks don't discuss these topics.
    To the next! Best wishes!!
