Top 5 Convention Names

It is a little disheartening when people you know and respect won't come to a party you are throwing because 5 years ago someone else threw a bad party with the same name.

Here are some suggestions for the name of next year's Science Fiction and Fantasy Society get-together.

  • Awesome Con
  • Ret-Con
  • Gathering of the Fans
  • Fandom United
  • Shindig

Any suggestions?

I love "AWESOME CON" (always in capital letters). I chuckle when I read it.

It reminds me of "AWESOME CROSS" from Strong Bad's e-mails.

Hmm... what is the meaning behind them? I like AWESOME CON... but though I like Fandom United... it would be shortened as FU.. and well.. might be taken wrong..

Ret-Con? I don't get that one...

Ret-con: Retroactive continuity is the adding of new information to "historical" material, or deliberately changing previously established facts in a work.

"Con-Duit"? "Con-Exion"? "Con-Delabra"? "Con-Decending"? "Decepti-Con"?

"I can't believe it's not Con?"?
