I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to put all the con reports on a subpage? I have some to add but worry that they overwhelm this page at this point. --Mrs. Potato Head 14:32, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Makes sense to me. There's nothing odd about having multiple articles for such a big con with such a long history. Franzeska 16:53, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
I'd offer a small snippet from a con report and then link to the subpage for more. That way someone skimming the main page can see there are reports and can click if interested for more detail. A lot of readers don't 'see" subpages because they read wikis differently, So...yes to subpage!--Morgandawn 18:13, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
The snippet is a good idea, as you're right, some folks won't see the subpage, and not go any further. I know I'm one of them... --Mrs. Potato Head 19:11, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Which snippet, though? Anyone feel like taking a stab at the snippet/summary for the main page? --Mrs. Potato Head 19:37, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Would it make sense to move the "Some Info About the xxxx Con" to the convention reports page? Possibly rename the subpage to something broader. I think we should keep Joan's 1981 report on the main page to give a flavor of the convention (plus it was the first). Moving the year by year info would help shorten the page considerably. --MeeDee 04:43, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
Breaking out at least one subpage would be a good thing, it's way too long as it is now. --msilverstar 04:01, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
How about we do what was done for VVC and Escapade - one subpage for each year. There certainly is enough content for the years (there wasn't before). I'll set up a test page.--MeeDee 04:42, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
This is the test page for 1996. [1] I picked 1996 because it shows how some of the earlier years might look. Later years will have much more info.--MeeDee 05:14, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
