Making it an cross-european con forum is really a good idea. Breaks the country barriers and is not just another single-con related forum. I'll keep an eye on it as time allows.

Ah, I was waiting for the Galacon-only forums to come back online, but this is even better!
Thanks for all the effort, and may this forum be in bloom of curious new members and fellow convention-goers :)

There we go.

By the way, without boasting (no rly), when I saw Crystal Fair pop up, I immediately sent them an eMail suggesting to join the group here.
Good example of Perry's point: others may join later. And that has happend.

However, a simple european flag with a generic all-white/yellow pony (ponyhead) would do, no?

Well, not really that catchy and not necessary either.


I'm happy to be here and looking forward to all the conventions. However I wonder if we can attend them all.

I like your designs, Stargaze. They're simple and efficient! Happy
Perhaps it could use a little more customization. Like... we could paint the stars in the colours of the flags of several countries within the borders of Europe.

Hello Don!
Althou it probably wont fully answer your question, you may want to check out this site:
http://ponycon.org/ - its the site of EPCU - European Pony Convention Union.

Its good source of information on what to prepare and how to prepare for a well-backed convention-starter. (the Google Docs in Join Us section)

What does the EPCU actually do... is it some sort of overhead? A quality control group? That if a con goes wrong they will step in?

Quote:Prospective Members

These are conventions in planning stages who work with the EPCU, but who have not yet met all the EPCU rules:

Czech Republic – Czequestria
Netherlands – Hearth’s Warming Con
Spain – Summer Wrap-up Festival
UK, Scotland – BronyScot

How far are these conventions in the stages? What did they fail? Where did they succeed?

I have found the rules to be confusing as an outsider.

Who are the members of the Union? Who represents which convention? The rules state a certain amount of transparency from potential members but the EPCU could use some itself in my opinion.

What is truly the goal of the Union? to be a mark of quality or simply a way for ponycons to make agreements when to hold a convention, so the cons don't have to compete with eachother to draw in people.

Also since the Crystal Fair has ended over a month ago, is it a member now?

EPCU is a collective of the euro pony cons. We share information and knowledge with each other to help improve our events and help each other out.

Full Membership of the EPCU requires various prerequisites, including insurance, evidence of success, and so on.

These requirements give an event a stable foundation that help protect it from collapse, and ensure that should the unforeseen occur, people can be properly compensated.

It lets VIPs and other guests know that they can pledge their time and effort without fear of getting stranded in the middle of nowhere with no event to support them.

TL;DR – The EPCU is specifically designed to prevent a Unicon from happening on our side of the pond.
If you fit the requirements of the EPCU, you're theoretically immune to that kind of disaster, where there were no safety nets, and no damage control.

Who are the members of the Union? Who represents which convention? The rules state a certain amount of transparency from potential members but the EPCU could use some itself in my opinion.

-- http://ponycon.org/members/ - GalaCon, BUCK and BronyDays are the only full members. I don't think people realise that most conventions, despite keeping the same name, change a lot of their staff each year (even the chairman etc) so reps can change fairly often.

What is truly the goal of the Union? to be a mark of quality or simply a way for ponycons to make agreements when to hold a convention, so the cons don't have to compete with eachother to draw in people.

-- Yes - the hope was that the EPCU would be a quality mark so that attendees can trust where to put there money. If the convention has the EPCU mark, it's more likely that it will succeed without financial issues (see the main answer above).

Also since the Crystal Fair has ended over a month ago, is it a member now?

-- CF could now, having run once, apply for full membership, if they were willing to show that they have not gone into debt that would jeopardise a future event. Just because a con takes a year out doesn't void their membership, but we do review membership each year; and if a convention is unlikely to run again then they would most likely leave.

Thank you, I think I have a better idea what the EPCU does now.

May I ask how far each of the potential members are?

IMHO it's not replacement for local forums - this can serve a different purposes and sharing informations about global conventions and experiences are just two of them.

Exactly!
Eurobronies is not intended as a substitute for the more local, specialized communities. This is just a bridge between them and we hope it serves that purpose well!

I m new here and hope hear good from you all
