    Dashcon 2014 AKA Why tumblr can't be trusted to do anything ever

    Shit, first the 4chan raids and now this.

    For those of you who don't know, Dashcon is a community-ran tumblr-based convention representing a multitude of fandoms. What ensued can surely be described as the worst con ever ran. The moderators were both incompetent and inexperienced, and a ton of other shit happened, such as:

    - The head organizers of Dashcon asked for $17,000 from its guests upon arriving at the convention area (in some hotel), because they never made plans with the facility, and had to pay if they didn't want to be kicked out.

    - A dealer's hall that was absolutely deserted except for a few tables, a bounce castle, and the infamous ball pit (an inflatable kiddie pool with plastic balls in it, which is pictured here:
     
    )

    - Scheduled performers walking out because the con organizers were unable to pay their appearance fees, thus forcing them to pay out of pocket for their own travel expenses and interrupt their tours. NightVale literally walked out, as did a few other scheduled guests. Some of the special guests were being footed the bill and the organizers initially didn't do anything until one of them threatened to sue (Baker Street Babes).

    - Not refunding con goers who paid for tickets to see the performers, but instead allowing them entry into a raffle and an extra hour in the ballpit as compensation.

    - Minors being allowed into panels about sex and erotica. Apparently there was a lot of dry-humping, and some of the homestuck people wanted to try out their new-learned sex moves. There was a lot of itching the next day.

    - Someone urinating in the ballpit and posting on Tumblr about it. Rumors are going around saying it was actually some guy from /pol/ but in reality who cares someone pissed in the god damn ball pit it's hilarious.

    - And the hotel reporting that they had never asked the con organizers for any money, so the rush to raise $17000 is suspected to be a huge scam. The company that ran the con (DashConsLLC) is based in Ohio, but the convention was held in Illinois.



    All in all, tumblr once again proves that just because you're a fucking nerd, doesn't mean you're smart. Or competent. Or reliable.

    I read on /b/ that some neckbeards had an orgy with some feminazis and that those who took part got crabs. I can only imagine the hideous, hideous sight of neckbeards and fat feminazis who "trigger" at someone referring to them as the word chubby having a massive gang bang in some dark room just to the side of a mess hall

    I want to believe.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.
