I had a blast at Prophecy, but little of that had to do with the actual, you know, conference. This is the first time I've had so many negative things to say about a con -- TWH was my first experience of the kind and I didn't have much to compare it to, and while I know Lumos was not high on many people's lists, I rather enjoyed it and thought it was organised rather well. I had high expectations and, needless to say, they were not met. So, here is a list of things that annoyed me, things that hopefully won't happen (or at least won't happen as much) at future HPEF cons.

On the upside, the volunteer elves were great, and the programming in general was wonderful -- I just really wanted to get the negative out before I did my con report, because as I was writing it, I kept getting sidetracked into "ARGH THIS ANNOYED D:" and it sounded more like a rant than anything else.
Now that that's out of the way, my con report is forthcoming in a day or two.
