Last year I heard they were limiting how many people could attend NDK, and the max number was 7,000. No comments relating to the rumor were ever posted on the main page. I was wondering if that rumor was true and if NDK 2012 would be enforcing anything similar this year?
That's because we can't possibly keep track of every rumor. This one's a new one to me. Where'd you hear it? Last year, we even had a "rumors" post where I tried to answer as many of these as possible, and get the sources to them.Sporkie
nicely detailed the facts, save one: that 7,500 limit is per day, not maximum overall. And we will always have badges available for sale onsite. We know that sometimes people don't hear about us until the weekend of con, and we'd never want them not able to attend. Of course, when those onsite badges are gone, they're gone. We will also announce if the pre-reg badges sell out, so people know. (That didn't happen last year, nor did we expect it to).
We allowed as much growth as possible under the cap. But it will be here for the near future, because there is not a more suitable hotel in the city of Denver we could go.
