Is this a common thing, that professionals at cons pay for their tickets? I’ve never seen it at a UK con, WorldCon didn’t,...
And sorry guys, but I won’t pay out $45 for the privilage of working for you. I give a convention organiser my time and effort for the cost of a free ticket.
And also, rather telling if you ask me, this comment in reply:
...i allways assumed that Cons paid the creators, isnt that why fans show up in the first place, to meet the creators?
At the risk of making myself anathema to yet more people, I replied in some depth about some of the traditions of convention membership at Worldcons and other general SF conventions. I know that comic book conventions have evolved their own practices.
