Don’t Be That Guy: A Basic Guide to Convention Etiquette
Not everyone is a seasoned fandom convention veteran. Every weekend thousands of convention virgins stream into hotels and convention centers for the very first time, not quite sure what to expect. And although there is a great sense of camaraderie and friendship that exists at fandom cons, a con newbie may quickly learn that there are some basic rules of convention etiquette, and if you go against them … well … Cthulhu have mercy on your soul.
But never fear! The Convention Fans Blog has put together a very basic guide to fandom convention etiquette, in the hopes you’ll never ever become “that guy.” This will be a very basic guide. Far more detailed ones have been written over the years, but I’m not interested in presenting newbies with a manual. Not today anyway.
