    Worldcon 2020: Wellington New Zealand

    Barely 11 months to go. Anyhow, i'm planning on being there. Despite the weather, i'll probably go for 3 weeks. I doubt i'll get another chance to visit for a long while!
  2. I probably will partake in some tourist stuff. I heard Ireland has some nice sites. I will confirm closer to the date. Unfortunately, I don't have a car or that would be another helpful option!

    Pod-Emperor Acknowledged At Last

    We have now escaped the 4th dimension and things have gotten even stranger.
  4. Its not the first time a referee has messed up the handball rule in this tournament. Maybe VAR makes it look deliberate but still very poor refereeing. Very unlucky Croatia.

    The Lodestar Award

    After all these years, we finally have a Young Adult award at Worldcon. I know a number of people on this board have spent a lot of time on this especially LugaJetboyGirlirra. It got ratified today with a provisional name of Lodenstar, with the name to be ratified in San Jose. But there will be an award next year. I'd name some of the others on the committee but I am bound to miss a few. Congrats to those involved, those who helped and those who voted. Somebody else who knows more about this can give further details about all the work done. I do like the idea of a Lodey award...
  6. Great note. You could link to GRRM's appearance page to give people an idea about where GRRM (and thus probably the BwB) will be in the coming months and years? www.georgerrmartin.com/appearances/

  9. Flying by to wave at Padraig

  10. It is more complicated than that I think. Most of the big events happen in the second half of the book, so you don't want to end up with a very unbalanced series. OTOH, you don't want them to have to rush through the book also. Good luck D&D. I hope they get a chance to figure it out. :) For the King of the North scene? Not sure.

    Vote on the Reputation System

    It does strike me that some people are assuming they are been negatively rated by other certain individuals, when nobody can be sure who is doing what to do (except Admins?). I can see how that can be discommoding and could lead to trouble. I don't think anyone thinks this system is tyrannical. Maybe annoying, frustrating, childish, petty etc.
