It is all a matter of how well the con is run. IF AND ONLY IF they managers can admin something as big as what they have will it be fun and worthwhile.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Gen Con has recently announced on their Facebook page that they have registered over 8,000 "events" for their con. Now, some of these won't happen as usual, but there will be many that will. Looking at how thick the program book is for many of the bigger cons (Origins and Gen Con, etc,), is it possible for a con to get "too big" or "too successful"? And if so, how big can it get before it's too big?
