    I don't suppose that means the date is subject to change? That would be awfully convenient if it was maybe a week later or a few weeks earlier. I really don't wanna miss this... :/

    Just a quick note here. Whilst the date is possibly subject to change, I wouldn't recommend saying "Do change the date", or the opposite. It may not help the committee members when people keep telling them when to set the date and whatnot. They need to make the decision that's best for as many people as possible, not a singular person. Even though they would love for there to be a date where everyone is able to attend, such a day would be a rarity to come by.

    As the venue manager for the event, I must say that the right date is always at the front of our minds, we must make sure the date is not only good for our attendees but also good for our staff as well. I personally get really busy at the beginning of September with other events, so doing this event mid-August is quite an important thing to me, or I couldn't afford both of the cons.

    This thread really put a downer on my day, seeing as the date probably won't change.

    Ah well, have fun guys. If you need me, I'll be in Portugal with Shaun.

    Unless we can't get a venue at all for the current dates, they won't change. The current date is the one that gives us least problems, and we looked into changing it to accommodate AcousticBrony, but it fouled up too many other things, so we decided to keep it 17th and 18th. On a side note, this means that, unfortunately, we won't have AcousticBrony. That said, we will have other awesome guests, and totally plan on having some live brony-related music.

    Just checked the dates on my work planner and the 17th & 18th/19th are good for me, i'll get on and book it off as soon as I can as I know a few of the guys I work with will probably book it soon for there family holidays and stuff. :)

    I don't know if you've spoken to Saturn about this Sky but if you have and he said it's ok then that's great, I would love for your friend to come and help out with Security for B.U.C.K. :D

    Should say i'm the Head of Security & First Aid at the con and I would love to have him join in the Security team, does he happen to be a fully qualified First Aider as well by any chance? :)

    I love the idea of a big pony gathering like this, especially since I've kind of had to rely on anime conventions to deliver that- and I hate anime conventions at the best of times. I hope B.U.C.K goes ahead as planned, I should be attending when it's all sorted! It's only about £15 return to Manchester from Edinburgh by coach, after all.

    Everybody moved on to Steam, Gtalk, or Skype.

    I moved on to all 3.

    Also WLM is terrible and clunky now.
