Thank you for the enlightenment on this. With how big the con is getting, and hear we became a fire hazard last year, I can understand why the badge control was initiated. It is more of a just a personal complaint since the Pool deck is my favorite area of the con. But I would never want the con to get shut down due to over crowding.
