In response to seanan_mcguire posting her annually-updated guide to surviving the big CC, I thought I'd publish my own.

Here it is:

STAY HOME!

Thank you, and I hope you found this guide useful. :)

I went once. It was where I discovered by D&D AND computer gaming. Haven't been back.

Yes, well, back when you went, it was very likely a reasonably-sized convention! When I went in 1990 and 1991, it certainly was. It started getting out of hand in 1992, and by 1996 I was done with it. Except for brief visits in 2006 and 2008, I haven't been back, and certainly not for any length of time.

I wholeheartedly agree with this assessment. I'll go paint my models or something.

Can't do that; I want to see certain people in the dealers' area. For my purposes, though, about three hours wandering that vast floor is as much time as I really need to spend there.

"Reasonably sized convention" is a somewhat elastic concept. chorale and I attended Con Francisco, our first Worldcon, a few weeks after attending Comic-Con back in the days you refer to—and I looked around and thought, "What a nice little relaxacon!" It was about a tenth the size of the Comic-Con we had just attended.

It is a telling fact that WorldCons today are still not as large in attendance as Comic-Con was in 1992.

YES.

Reminds me of the "instructions for use" included with one Cards Against Humanity set:

"DO NOT."
