^ This

This is why I think there should be more multimedia conventions instead of anime, comic, and sci fi-specific ones.

A lot of conventions that used to be solely anime have become more "multimedia", though. Partially because of the Whovians and Homestucks coming in, but also there will be MLP panels at something which used to be just an anime con.
Is there ever a time when it would be okay for a con to have an "anime cosplays only" rule?

Yes there is, well not quite what you're saying but similar. I know several cons around me that are "anime only". While they do allow people to cosplay from whatever medium they want, they like to keep panels and events to anime, manga and Japanese culture.

While I think it's important for some cons to expand, I do appreciate other cons sticking to their roots.

On the topic of annoying fandoms though, I think it's kind of unfair to generalize an entire fandom. There are annoying fans in every fandom but some fandoms such as Homestuck and Hetalia have grown so large that there are a lot more fans in general so you're going to get a mix of the good and the bad.

While I'll admit that I'm quick to made generalizations about a fandom based on my bad experiences (I've had really bad experiences with the MLP fandom), it's really something you shouldn't do because a good chunk of people in all fandoms are good people.

No. I think it's perfectly acceptable if the anime convention as a specific "only anime panels" rule, but it would be alienating a large population if the convention said "sorry, anime cosplays only". Not to mention it would be rude and a dumb rule.

I dunno know, you don't see comicon goers complaining about anime cosplayers at comic-specific conventions.

Annoying Fandom? Even though I've cosplayed as Rainbow Dash, I know a few Bronies who make the fandom "annoying." And I know some awesome Bronies. It depends on the people, really.

This goes along with a very important lesson learned in the 2nd grade while playing Nation Ball inside on a rainy day. Two guys were goofing off, and thus the rest of the 25 kid -count class had to sit down and be silent. We couldn't even downgrade to Silent Ball. We just had to .....sit there and read or whatever. >.<

The Lesson: It just takes one stupid idiot to ruin it for the rest of the class.

(Now to age myself. *ahem* 2nd grade = 7 yrs old. The year = 1988. *Snaps in her Geezer teeth* I'M SO OLD!!! *cries*)

Enforcing an "anime cosplays only" rule? They would have to get a list of every single anime character in existence, and at the door people would have to tell them who they were cosplaying and security would need to check the list to see if the character is on it. If the character is anime, they cosplayer gets in, if they character isn't, then they need to "GTFO."

Duh.

I KNOW LOL. I don't know any brave souls willing to scribble down the names of every anime character to ever been conceived.

I would have to say, IMO of course. Homestuck, Dr. Who and some Bronies. Not offending anyone, I've just met some of the worst people imaginable in these fandoms. XD

You know what? This is all full of easy targets. Way too easy. You know who's had it too easy? Kimba the White Lion fans. Screw those guys. Bunch of anime-hipster jerks, they are.

That would take at least 200 years just to list every anime & manga character in existence from the 1950's to the 1980's. It would then take another 300 years to list every anime & manga character in existence from the 1980's to 2013.

Plus, once they completed the list, the list itself would not fit in any hotel or convention center. (It'll be longer than the Great Wall of Egypt, wider than the Pyramids of Egypt, and taller than the Empire State Building.)

Then of course, many characters have more than one outfit. So if the list was to include pictures, it would be even longer.

Aaaaaand THAT, is why anime conventions will never have an "anime/manga cosplays only!!!" rule.

Well they could always just google the character name and see if it's animu or not. Just sayin'.
It would still be pretty ridiculous though.
