TOPIC: Could Con cancel because of Chrono Virus?

Could Con cancel because of Chrono Virus? 2 weeks 5 days ago #1

Could MOMO CON be cancelled because of Chrono Virus? We attend most cons every year but we are concerned about the Chrono Virus situation. This type of convention brings in thousands of people for several days. That is dangerous considering the Chrono Virus situation. Is the con going to address this very real danger? Please do not disregard this message. We are needing real info on the situation. Thank you!

All jokes aside we are looking for an official answer to this very real situation. Events are cancelling across the country. We do these cons every year but this is a very different situation. Thinking it may be risky to invest in events like this that bring large groups together. Has MOMO released an official statement on the situation as of yet?

i am not joking

so you want TD to pull out a magic 8ball or build a time machine and go to the future? that is what you are asking

if you dont feel safe don't go. Plain and simple. I am sure if MOMO con says something it would be posted here

You could go to momo cons site and see what they have..or even message them. TD does not own MOMO con

I wasnt joking. My friend is head of medicine ...his words at a conference on this subjuct. Don't panic and wash your hands.

people are blowing this out of proportion..but again, if you dont feel safe, don't go.

Not to rag too much on Arthur, but why are there two posts on this? And how hard is it to get “coronavirus” right? Sorry, it bugs me.

The convention itself will weigh the pros and cons, information for that area or region and insurance liabilities. A lot are canceling or pushing the date out if possible.

If you are asking for yourself to attend or not attend, then answer these common questions to help make a determination.

What age are you?
This virus seems to spare the younger, healthy children thru young adults without any underlying health conditions. Doesn't mean they are immune, just getting mild to no symptoms. If you are in your 50's or older, you may want to take a hard look at overall risk factors. If you have any breathing issues (asthma) you may want to pass, as this bug seems to CRIT on Respiratory Systems pretty regularly

What is your general state of health?
Exercise and eat right, plenty of sleep. Shower reasonably often, keep hands clean. Because we know most gamers unfortunately do not necessarily fall into this category. Burning the candle hard at a convention is a right of passage. Let's not digress into the state of gamer/convention/cleanliness, touchy subject.

Are you insured and prepared for the unexpected?
Health insurance in this county is a monster and for some, one that eats them alive. You hope to never use it but most of us have it for this reason. It's not uncommon to break a leg while skiing on a ski vacation, your insurance have little qualms on covering. They may question you attending a convention during an outbreak and fight you on coverage if you do catch it. But that is a question you can ask before leaving for a con and get the answer in writing.

To quote Roosevelt " So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is...fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. "


Make informed decisions, there is a lot of fear mongering going on. And for the record, just came back from a local con here in Iowa. Pretty much all of us above age 50 in our group caught a flu bug from someone that should have stayed home. Would I have skipped the convention with this threat? Nope. Would I have knowing how miserable I am right now having caught a bug? Nope, but I would have drank a lot more in my free time to give those damn germs nothing but barren, alcohol laced tissue to live on.

Lazlo, do you speak officially for True Dungeon? Are you the official PR rep? I just want to know I am getting the official information on this situation with regards to what will be the official response from TD on this virus situation.

No but I gave you the the link of the actual con. So you can ask them. The people that own the convention and run it.
Why does TD have to respond for
A
Convention they don’t own.

Done beating my head against the wall trying to explain this to you. You just don’t get it.

Laz is absolutely correct. You keep calling it a virus situation. You do realize that there is always a virus situation in the world? The most dangerous thing is panic and your messages are spreading it. Please stop and take a breath and realize that Lazlo is giving you good advice. My sister too is a emergency Medical doctor on the actual front lines of this and she too just says wash your hands and don't panic.

Let's put a few facts forward to see if you can see the issue.

Deaths from the flu in just the US last year, 20,000
Deaths from coronavirus world wide 4,000

I don't see anyone saying to cancel any event because of the flu.

Please note that I am also not joking when I say that there is always a virus situation. There are virus outbreaks all around the world, and some of them are with much more dangerous diseases than this. We all need to stay calm as this really isn't bad as long as we stop making it bad.

And if something does happen, I am quite sure that TD will be giving any money spent on an event that doesn't end up happening back.

Arthur,
Concerns and fears over this are valid. But in this instance, what Laz has been saying is 100% accurate. TD at Momo Con is but one of many vendors setting up to offer it''s wares. They will be informed of changes with the rest of the sponsors/Vendors if those arise. They will react and adjust as necessary as any business does to protect it's patrons. And if that happens, they will respond. Trying to get an "official answer" 2 + months out from anyone is like trying to divine the future. But he is also correct in it is Momo Cons call on this at the moment, not TD. And no, Im not a TD official to answer for them. But I am a business owner, do exhibit at conventions and this is how the process works.

I don't know why you are getting upset Lazlo. I am just asking questions in advance of the next con. I bring my family to these cons and I am a safety first person. This virus is very serious and I just wanted re assurance that if we attended the MOMO TD event that True Dungeons has taken measures to ensure public confidence in light of this virus situation. As I said many events are cancelling and this is one event we are looking forward to. Not just the Con but the actual TD show.. You were first to respond so I thought you may be the official PR person..If not my mistake. I did not mean to upset you in any way. I am just gathering information so I can make an informed decision.

Archmage 78 Thank you! It is good to know True Dungeon will give refunds for any purchased tickets and shows that may cancel.

We don't need two threads for the exact same topic. Post on the other one to continue this conversation.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?
Please post TDb corrections/suggestions in this thread .
If I write something in teal, it should not be taken seriously.
