We're very proud of the improvements we made going from synDCon 2010 to synDCon II: Part Deux, but we know we can do better. Please provide your feedback on this thread's topic. Don't be afraid to tell us what we did wrong -- we want to improve -- but don't forget to tell us what we did right -- we don't want to change that.
Please note: This is a polite forum. Criticism is greatly encouraged. Flaming will be met with violent spell-casting.
This year we went with a staggered slot schedule. That is, rather than have all gaming events start at 8am, 1pm, and 7pm, we had them starting at various times during the day. This way, if you decided to spend an hour or two attending a seminar, visiting the exhibitor room, or sleeping in, you could do so and not have to sit around for three hours waiting for the next game to start. This also provided us with greater flexibility inserting last-minute additions to our schedule, and made it less of a problem for you, the gamer, if your scheduled event was canceled.
Any comments on our schedule? Did this work for you, or did you prefer the schedule from synDCon 2010? Do you have any other suggestions with respect to how we organized our schedule?
