    I didn't put those in, I'm guessing @MichaelSomething or @danir did.

    I was trying to put the weekend (first, third, etc) type in rather than numerics since they change from year to year.
    I was also planning on putting a link to other lists of Cons at the bottom. At least such would be welcome. For instance, wikipedia has a list of cons, but it appears to have last been updated in 2013...

    Problem is, even that changes from year to year.

    GenCon, for example, bounces all over August as the years go by - earliest start date was July 30 and latest end date was - I think - August 23, over the 2010's. It's Aug 17-20 this year, Aug 2-5 in 2018.

    I'd suggest just going with the next available actual date and adding the year. For con's with fixed dates in future years, put those in as well.

    I really like this wiki thread. Thank you for this.

    Is there any way we could make it a sticky thread?

    Updated all date fields.
    Removed Saboten as it was culture only, no gaming.

    Mods - can this thread be stickied please? Just editing the initial post doesn't bounce the thread to the top of the list the same way posting a reply like this does, thus it risks falling off the page.

    Thanks! (will mention in Meta also)

    Working on a different solution for not losing wiki threads. Sticking them all isn't a great idea.
