Headline edit

Can we arrange for this headline to be a sentence? --Pi zero (talk) 22:55, 18 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Does that extra adjective work? -- Zanimum (talk) 11:46, 19 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'd suggest adjusting the current by changing "featured" to "features" (making it clearly a sentence in active voice and present tense) and dropping the indefinite article at the front (articles are mostly omitted in headlinese), thus "Culture of creativity features at Furnal Equinox 2018". --Pi zero (talk) 12:31, 19 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Captions and intro edit

I've edited headlines and formatting.

I think it would be nice to write more about the event, when did it start and in what order did it go.

Add captions to more images. What were they doing? What animal do they represent?

Sorry, I've been distracted. I do have audio from the PR guy that I haven't transcribed yet, that will be used in the intro. Zanimum (talk) 11:43, 19 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Reporting notes edit

I arrived right as the panel on organising the convention started. As Ronnie was a panelist, I didn't have a chance to ask whether it was okay to record audio at the panel, and I didn't have a notepad.

The panelists spoke for the continuous process for planning a convention, and one person from a larger American convention said their 2018 event had yet to happen, but they were already planning 2019.

They spent a block of time during the panel discussing motivations for themselves, volunteer management and how that differs from the workplace where you can actually discipline people, etc. The main quote that at least one panelist said was "if you're happy, we're happy", referring to the audience of attendees.

The only other original research is the fact that the Fursuit Games were made harder by limited vision and dexterity. This should be obvious from the photos, as you can see the human eyes only with the cheetah and ram--neither of whom were participating in the games--meaning everyone had some sort of fabric, plastic mesh, or lens reducing vision, and the fact most hands are pawlike. But also, as I have mascot performer as what's being now termed as a paying hobby (corporate marketing at conventions, parades, that sort of thing), I can confirm this to be the case.

Otherwise, I think that's it? I forget, who do I email the audio of the interview to? -- Zanimum (talk) 13:16, 19 March 2018 (UTC) Zanimum (talk) 13:16, 19 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Zanimum: "scoop at wikinewsie dot org". I've just checked and it appears to be still functioning. --Pi zero (talk) 13:46, 19 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Pi zero: Thanks! I've sent aN M4A audio file, which my sent folder claims is 1.8 MB. Run time is 2m 46s, with the relevant bit starting at about 24s. -- Zanimum (talk) 14:07, 19 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
