We'd need to expand beyond the realms of this website's interests (ie. World of Warcraft, Warhammer, Eve, City of Heroes/Villians, etc)

I think next year might be a bit...hard to accomplish, cause just getting a hotel/convention center/expo center/whatever in time to have a con might be a year, and you'd have to have money upfront to reserve which doesn't seem like a wise idea to do if you don't have people lined up for it.
Also I suggest summer as lets face it large part of the mmo demographic is teen and teens have school in fall.
I think this would be more feasible for summer 2010. imo.

I'd most likely be unable to attend due to school and distance.

We need a poll of numbers from all on where they are currently based at, then decide a suitable country/location to host one.

Perhaps host one in the West, then East, West... alternatively that is. Might help those who live on the other sides of the globe.

People are thinking this is a "forum only" event. The site is the entity hosting it, but this is a convention for all MMO gamers. It won't be limited to just the games we feature on this site. Other fansites will be invited to come, other publishers will be contacted for sponsorship/events. Naturally, our largest attendance will be from the NORCAL area but we'll make it worth the while of people travelling in from out of state/country.

On that note, I've sent an RFI to somewhere I think will be suited for it. Once we have a location secured and programming tentatively established, registration will open. Once registration opens, the convention will happen. I won't open it before there is a solid plan in place.

I would love to go and I'm thinking of taking a road trip sometime in the near future as well so I could tie this all in together.

Sounds leik a great idea Noe, but arn't you jumping the gun? MOG isn't even that old, or well-kown enough for something leik this.

Don't let my statement leik this stopping you from doing this convention :X

I would totally go to this and I don't live very far from cali (from BC canada).

Bet everyone would go just to see Noe lol

Everyone's getting the idea that this is a "MMOG forum convention" - which is completely false. They're actually two completely separate projects - the only links between them are subject matter and partially the name.

Not really into the whole convention thing, although I do hope it flourishes.

And to the people saying MMOG is too small/not known to make a convention... everything has to start somewhere. Might as well try the idea out rather than have the thought of: "what if..."

Being in SEA, I'm practically on the dark side of the moon here so no, I won't be able to attend. It seems like a great idea though.

Too early to decide for me, plus I don't exactly know what a mmog convention would consist of..

._. My parents aren't too happy about me being on the computer playing games already.

Imagine how the conversation would go if I just went up to my mother and asked, "Mum, may I get a ticket to fly to the other side of the country to attend a gaming convention?"

...Shoot, I'm not even allowed out of my HOUSE. >>;
