Yup, they're actually being brought up on charges for charging/controlling something that they did not own. My Tumblr using gf and i had a long laugh-filled discussion about Dashcon and the 4chan raid.
Let's think about this for a minute: a convention usually consists of a gathering of likeminded individuals, often of the same subculture. So it follows that furry conventions would cater to furries, metal conventions would cater to metalheads, anime conventions would cater to anime fans, etc.
There is no subculture surrounding tumblr.
Yes, they have their landwhales and SJW's and special snowflakes, but that is not a subculture. The only thing they have in common is a lower average intelligence and liberal politics, and that they use the same website.
Imagine, for a minute, if Blogspot had a convention. There are so many niche blogs on the site that there is not a predominant culture. Then, imagine if Facebook had a convention; it would just be regular jackasses! It would be as if the convention hall fired their security and left the doors open, not a unified convention to speak of.
Even if the organizers get their shit together, Dashcon will forever be a failure. Not just in our intolerant eyes, and not just because enough SJW landwhales exist in our society to generate a convention-sized group, but because their convention has little unity and little common culture to actually discuss. It's just a bunch of regular jackasses who use tumblr and are fat and liberal.
You could run it successfully if you branched it into several mini-cons under one unified logistical structure. It'd require a lot of organization, clear structure, and a strong authority to pull it off.

+1, exactly. Tumblfags have all the negative characteristics of nerds, but without the positive qualities like; high intelligence or dedication
>Believes someone pissed in the ball pit yet no-one noticed it being wet or any smell.
>some butt-hurt because he wasn't invited person made up the piss in the ball pit sotry and /b/ buys it hook line and sinker.
>unless you've seen video or pictures of someone pissing in the ball pit.. it NEVER happened and youre a moron to believe it.
>organization, clear structure, and a strong authority
Yeah, they don't have that.
At that point, why not just go to the convention representing your subculture? If you're an SJW, go to an SJW Con, or if you like anime, go to an anime convention. The concept of a convention centered around a general-purpose social network skirts around the exchange of culture conventions are supposed to provide. When there is no unity, the convention becomes a generic gathering.
Best thing they could do is never have it again, and go to regular Conventions representing tumblr and their blogs. But their liberals, feminists, and SJW's, so of course they're gonna go with the least intuitive, least thought-out excuse for a choice.
there was a bdsm panel, but seems it wasn't an orgy like everyone expected
I have read they were pretty serious about it and people only did a couple of dirty jokes.
I guess since most tumblr people are underage they got afraid of getting in troubles.
please god let this happen again
No way, I'm calling bullshit on -
it doesn't matter if anyone actually pissed in the ball pit. The fact that those fucking morons think that they were unwittingly playing around in someone's piss is hilarious.
From the pictures, it looks like there are a few girls I actually would have fucked.
I always want to go to these things, because I know that I'll be the most attractive person there.
must be jelly, cus jam don't jiggle that way
I genuinely don't understand why everyone crapped the bed over this. By the end of the pledging period, every moron involved or spectating should have known instantly that $17k would not be adequate to host a public con of any size or duration. The only note-worthy part of this story is that the organizers still went ahead with it, but other than that, nothing about this should surprise or entertain anyone. Fuck me, I am tired of hearing about this.
Have these been getting simpler, or is it just me?
denny's is now my favorite restaurant.
hahahahaha woww. if this isn't a perfect reality embodiment of tumblr i dont know what is.
>full of shrieking tweens, manbabies
>wants to look impressive and important, but truly useless
>staffed by skeevy, incompetent people
>fucking over eachother, their fans, the few quasi-famous people who use it
>fucking over everything in a 100 mile radius of it
>an extra hour in the urine soaked ballpit
never make a con for a community of spergy shut ins and attention whores.
Their problem was that, like all dimwits on tumblr, they had a vision but lacked the knowledge or skills to realize it. However, they went ahead with it anyway and it ended up being a complete, directionless fuck up.
Essentially, a con is a product that the organizers are selling. That's why they have to charge. This requires a business plan.
They didn't know their market: They only had an idea of how many people they wanted to attend, not an estimation on how many people would actually attend. This takes tons of research, and legitimate training or at least some background in event-planning to calculate.
1. Why does this need to exist? What benefit does it serve? Will people find it necessary? What can you give them that they can't get on the internet, or at a different con?
2. Who exactly was their market? On average, how far would their market be willing to travel just to attend the con? Is it local? Regional?
Let's say that, on average, nobody would be willing to travel more than 100mi to get there. How many people in your market live within 100mi of that con? How do you advertise to those people? How will you sell the con to them and convince them that they should go?
How many of those people will actually go?
If they had just those two things, there are a hundred other questions to ask, but it sure as hell makes the job easier.
These people are retards. My friend said it best the other day when we were talking about the plague of tumblr activists. He said, "They're the generation that was told they can change the world, but that's all the advice they ever got about it. Nobody told them how. They just told them that they could do it, and now they're trying to, but they've got their heads up their asses trying to find this magical gift they were apparently born with."
4chan meetups have been cancer. One time there was supposed to be a 4chan fight club meetup, but only 8 or so people actually went and nobody wanted to fight. Then, two people decided that they didn't want to be pussies anymore and had a terribly uncoordinated scuffle that ended in a draw because they were both so out of shape.
There's a video somewhere.
Same deal, I'd imagine. There are over 60 boards on 4chan, and even if you only count a quarter of that that's still a lot of different subcultures and interests.
Could you create a single con that interests /a/, /o/, /k/, AND /sp/?
> mfw I made around 10K with the help of a few fellow /b/ tards.

My biggest worry is when /k/ folks show up.

I would have printed out some invites and handed them to the girls in the ball pit, say there's a party at my hotel room at 9pm-whenever.
is this 4chan vs tumbler thing a giant whos more autistic contests cuz im to autistic to understand or care i honestly would like if you all would just die of cancer i want b to be fun again this is just shit posting in trend
Seriously why do people like homestuck?
it is inferior in every way to its predecessor "Problem Sleuth" (a comic which is actually not unfunny) There is literally a better comic RIGHT THERE ON THE SAME SITE
>idk man, there was no ball pit as far as I can tell
All cons from now on will have a ball pit...all of them.
Bandwagon effect. Same with MLP. A few people started raving about how amazing it was and a shitload of other retarded hipsters though liking it would make them "cool" and "different" to rave about it as well.
day 2 highlights

wow extremely deep thinking you got there maybe your wisdom if it was not ignored by anyone with half a brain could End world Hunger and war this threads full of the worst of the worst cringe GL and good speed goodnight sweet B i think tumbler already won
> implying traps are a bad thing
A real man can satisfy anyone and anything with a warm hole
Thats really biased and retarded if you honestly use anything besides /b//facebook
Just because people use tumblr dosnt make them automatically void from being human or make them a lesser being, just like how because we go on 4chan it dosnt make us all child molesters or gore enthusiast.
If you're going to criticize someone do it with a little less bias and delusion, and no where in the video did I hear her defend the con, she was just showing of her nerdy shit she got from the con.
When things are more "exclusive" or "underground" they usually get more attached to it, you cant tell me at least one time in elementary school that was a "club"(term used very loosely) that you were either
A. apart of
B. Excluded from
now take that, splash in some talent, strip away all credibility and spread it all across the internet.
plz dont relate your problems to me im sure coming from the back alley cum hole you where birthed out of shouldn't have an affect on your ability to read my post but maybe that's just my liberal attitude
So much autism in one building.
Holy shit man.
You don't stem off much from just /b/ do you?
I mean yeah, /b/ is obviously the scum of the internet but that dosnt make -someone who uses the sub-portion of scum and get noticed for it without it really meaning anything- any better than us.
The image in the thumbnail was completely different from what was in the actual image. i guess nobody else saw it
my only serious question is what actually happened to the 17k and did the hotel actually demand it? Google has given me mixed reviews on the subject.
>What about a 4chan con, by the way ?
4con is already confirmed as happening:
The ball pit is going to be ten times bigger than dashcon and pre filled with piss.
>The ball pit is going to be ten times bigger than dashcon and pre filled with piss.
Holy fuck, you autists are still going on about this faggotry?
All this proves, is that your useless generation can't accomplish something as simple as organizing a meeting of a website used mostly by anorexic teenage girls.
Just another "super threatening group" /b/ronies are scared of.
So when will there be a convention for YouNow?
4chan would be VERY interested in that one.
The one with the pink crown is a solid 6 for looks, but you can tell shes such a fucking idiot her company would be insufferable.
The girl 2 up from the fat cunt smurf is at least a 5 also.
such an unorganized con must be really easy to raid by /pol/, /b/
>actually piss in a bottle and spread it everywhere
>open a sell stand with everything beeing drenched in cum before
>sell nail polish filled with cum
>put "free apple juice" woth decoration somewhere, everything just piss
>lots of channers with tshirts saying "muh trigghus"
>put fawkes masks on and randomly throw eggs at panels
some stuff would go like placing it there an leaving. in disguise, as guy fawkes masks, no problem.
if you are reeeeaaally concerned, one could cook the piss (f.e.) beforehead because of DNA tracing
i think all of that could work and id like to do it. but im on the wrong continent
>even being able to get this autistic
Sure, tumblr is just a platform that anyone can use, so it would be inaccurate to say that everyone who uses it is a part of a tumblr subculture, but there is most definitely a significant segment of tumblr who are a part of a distinct subculture based around it. They share beliefs, interests, language, and commune with another to express them. To say this isn't a cultural group is asinine.
It's clear just from the videos I've seen of Dashcon that there is a sense of unity among them. While Dashcon clearly had implementation issues, there's no problem with it conceptually.
>what the fuck is that finger salute thing they do? Is that a way of showing you use Tumblr?
Its off the hunger games film.
Which is a shit clone of Battle Royale for faggots. With all the interest and magic sucked out of it.
Yes I am embarrassed that I know that.
But at least I dont know what a trigger is.
Or who night vale is? Sounds like some kind of WWF wrestler.
>You can see these at every convention whores aren't a tumblr exclusive
I think hes referring to the fact that everyone at dashcon was middle class and white?
So when they dress up as Japanfags they just look pathetic.
This should tell you everything that you need to know about women. When their scams don't work out, they will always resort to crying.
And it often fucking works. To the tune of 17 grand. What does that say about you faggots who give them what they want when they spout those crocodile tears?
