During the last days of the old Anime Vice, a lot of folks were in a rush to save and back up data. For me personally, I prioritized my teammates' wiki work especially our team projects before mine. I manage to save most of my teammates and then mine wiki work. I never had time to save non wiki stuff, and I only save a few. Unfortunately, this was one of projects I didn't save.
What this project was about is showing our passion for conventions by mapping out conventions (anime, comics, and games) around the world where our folks have visited. Ultimately, encouraging our community to visit a convention (try it once to experience and enjoy it, too). Mastermenos (BigHeart711), sickVisionz, and myself co-written a survival guide on tackling your first convention. Giving you guys and gals tips on what you need to know about conventions. It was a fun guide to do.
Please let me know if you have visited an anime convention. Thank you and I hope you enjoy this cool thread!
In Baltimore, Maryland, Anime Vice user, DocHaus, visited Otakon.
In Atlanta, Georgia, we have 3 Anime Vice folks. Mastermenos, sickVisionz, and Wales all visited Anime Weekend Atlanta. Also, there is another convention in Atlanta, Georgia, Momocon, where Mastermenos visited each year.
In California, we have 3 folks, Calaggie, PikaHyper and myself. Calaggie visited Fanimecon which is in San Jose while I visited Anime Expo in Los Angeles and Long Beach Comic Con in Long Beach. PikaHyper visited San Diego Comic Con.
Finally, we have very own staff members. Tom Pinchuk and Sam Weller, our Vice Pit crew, visited Anime Expo in Los Angeles, California and New York Comic Con in New York City.
Note: This is the only map I could find. I know I had a map of the UK because in one of my cultural interviews, someone visited a con in the UK. I will try to find out. Furthermore, I had links to everyone's convention blogs in the old Anime Vice as well as information on when they visited a convention. I don't have that information unfortunately. This is what I have from scratch.
Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Old Man Dream: Guess we don't get it. Make things short and sweet: Through some unintentional legal wranglings, Harmony Gold's owned international rights to the Macross name for decades and its Japanese developers, disgusted by the move, had not allowed...

Old Man Dream: ...many later Macross anime outside Japan because that would profit Harmony Gold. Macross was one of three anime titles used by HG in the 1980s to edit together the popular Robotech series popular with fans during that time. Under this deal...

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
