Hello and welcome to the DragonCon Forums!

As a courtesy, please post here and introduce yourself...we're not asking for your bio, just a brief hello and what your experience (if any) with DragonCon is.  ;D

As you will see, although this forum is under the banner of DragonCon (*though not affiliated*), we have many diverse topics of interest here...so post away!

As both a long time DCFs Member and Moderator, I have seen the growth of this board explode over the years...a very good thing indeed! So please contribute (sharing stories, offering advice, asking questions and posting about geeky-stuff 8)) to our growing community year-round ;)!

On behalf of the Members and Staff...Welcome to the Dragon*Con Forums.

I'll post in here! :) I'm new enough!

I'm Turdly. I've never been to a Dragon*Con. 2014 will be my first one. My little sister loves cons and cosplay and will be king of holding my hand throughout this whole thing.

I love board games and tabletop games. So, that's likely where I'll be hanging out. :) Mr. Poop, my husband, also loves board games, so I hope he'll be able to come with us! :D

See you guys there!

This was my first year to D*C and it was one of the best experiences of my life! It's how I found out about the forum and met some of the awesome peeps who run it. I'm an aspiring artist who loves to cosplay and watch marathons of Star Trek shows and LOTR. I host events through our local Geek Girl Meetup group which gives me great opportunities for gaming, cosplay and the sort until D*C rolls around again.

Hello.
My wife and I are planning on coming to D*C 2014. This will be my first D*C and my first major-major convention. I have only been to a major con once--Arcon back in mid-late 2000's. I'm much more familiar with minor cons--I was a regular attender of VisionCon through the 1990's. For my wife this will be her first con of any type.

I'm looking for advice/tips for D*C specifically. I'm sure some general con knowledge will be applicable, but if there's anything specific--locations, procedures, etc--I'd really like to know. Let me link an example from BGG.Con of what I'm talking about: advice.

Welcome! When I was a first-timer, I read the unofficial D*C wiki obsessively: http://dragon-con.pbworks.com/

Ciao!!!

Hello, my name is Little Italy (or Lil Italy, if you would prefer). I have been wanting to go to this con for awhile, and for the first time this con is finally a possibility for me (of which I am most excited!). I have had prior con experience, namely Ohayocon and the Star Trek Convention, though I have dabbled with both Acen and Connecticon.

I am a lover of all things nerdy from almost every aspect of the varying spectrum, so I am really looking forward to D*C 14. ^.=.^

Hello, I'm JDC Burnhil; I've been attending Dragon Con for about seven years now, and I'll be coming back as many times as they let me. 

I'm actually hoping someone can help me out with a problem I have - At the con, I got a flyer at the Writers Track table, about an anthology being put together of stories set AT the con.  Well, I've been working on my entry but the flyer has gone missing!  I'm hoping someone might be able to help me out, if they still have their flyer...

Hey JDCB, I can't help you, but post about it here and it'll be more likely that other ppl will see your request: http://dragonconforums.org/general-discussion/

Hello all,
I've attended the last 4 DCs and was introduced to it by my girlfriend (now wife) who just attended her 10th DC (non-consecutively). 2013 was the first year that I costumed. My wife has been making costumes for a long time, but hadn't made one in several years. So now she is getting back into it and I'm learning:)

Hi everyone!

I'm Heartofsilver and I finally got around to joining the forum!

DragonCon 2013 was not only my first DC, but also my first con EVER (Yep, just this past August I was a con virgin). I was thrown into it by myself, as my roommate and fellow con-goer had some health issues that prevented her from going to D*C for most of the days. Now that we got an overflow hotel room for this year, it will be easier for both me and her (I need my midday naps while she'll need a comfortable place to stay if she has a pain flare up). But regardless, it was so much fun to go there and have a great time with other awesome people. Hopefully this year I can make more lasting friendships than last year. I also plan on cosplaying for the first time, too!
