Hello! Is there any sort of policy on when to start a new topic vs bumping an old post?

I don't think so? That's a question for Vay, Mortal or one of the other mods.?We have all sorts of zombie posts so I wouldn't feel to concerned.

I've been known to bump old posts; if it'something from more than six months ago, i'd say you're probably safe starting a new topic.

We are a pretty laid back community. So long as you aren't resurrecting a post for a room share from previous years, I think we are all pretty open to continuing older conversations.

Welcome Mist!

We try to create a comfortable environment in the Dragon Con Newbies Facebook group...

https://www.facebook.com/groups/dragonconnewbies/

The only thing we're hard on is off topic posts.  :)

Hello-

This is my first time going to Dragon Con as well as my first time Cosplaying. I'll only be going on Saturday but do you know of any group photography stuff going on for X-men? or know of any photographers that will be there? Or how to find this type of stuff out? I'm cosplaying as a Barbarian Rogue.

Thank you,
Laurie

p.s. I'm super excited!

Welcome.   I don't know when, but behind (east-side-isn) of the Hilton they usually do LARGE photo shoots.  If you are there for a day, I would go there for X-Men pictures.

Newbie to this forum, but it will be my 3rd year in a row at dragon con. Just figured I'd say hello.
Title: Re: HEY NEWBIES !
Post by: Speaker2Mundanes on August 29, 2015, 09:08:49 PM
As requested here is our hello to the group. This will be our 2nd DC. Last year was pretty much a scouting trip. We are big time looking forward to this years con. We will be coming down from the Nashville area after work Thursday I expect to be in Atlanta around 10PM. I'm hoping the traffic will be unsnarled from Biden's visit and the sport events when we get in. We missed the boat on booking into the host hotels and booked us into the Crowne Plaza.

Hello!

I posted on the sticky'd post, I might as well do the same here.

This is going to be my first time at Dragon Con and my first time going to a convention by myself! ;-;  (Scared)
Hoping to meet some really cool people to hang out with and make friends.  ^^

don't be. you will have a great time. :)  i always go by myself; no one else to keep track of, no one else to have to wait for, i can change my mind as often as i like about what to do without having to consult anyone... it's great. :)

+1 for your first time.  ;)
