A questionnaire was open on the website during October 2015. We had 207
responses, about half from people who do not usually attend Eastercon
We took the results from the Questionnaire and presented them at a programme item at Novacon 45 (Nottingham, 13-15 November 2015). Pat McMurray, the Chair of Mancunicon, chaired the panel, and there were ~77 people in the audience. A spirited debate was had, we got an idea of what to do next, and we took volunteers’ names to help with doing it. I’ll post in more detail on all of that in due course.
- We have 17 additional volunteers to take discussion forward – thank you everyone! – and more are always welcome
- We were told off for not advertising the questionnaire widely enough, and told to reopen it – so we have done so and the link is open again on the website
- We will post on our website both the presentation we made at Novacon, and the detailed data our thoughts were based on
- We will be meeting on-line to work out how to take the conversation
This is a busy time of year for everyone, and we won’t be doing very much of this before Xmas. Please bear with us and we’ll come back with more in
Please tell people the questionnaire is open again, and we’re happy for
people to print it off for people who can’t do it online. We’ll put a postal
address on the website for this purpose.
Everyone wants Eastercon to continue and thrive. We hope this conversation is helping.
We’d love comments on the website. Thanks for listening.
