i could edit..... but then it wouldn't should a recent post... so i'll double post.
i just visited the nekocon site..... there's going to be an attendance cap:
"Currently over 1,200 people have pre-registered for Nekocon 6. Due to this incredible amount and city fire-safety codes we at Nekocon will be enforcing an attendance cap at the convention of 1,600 people. We apologize for any inconvenience to anybody's plans to attend our event. We are already planning to move to a larger facility for year Seven which will give everyone the elbowroom they need. "
