I've tried adding a few more sources (probably badly as I'm just getting used to the citation templates). A Google News search turns up a bunch of hits for TwiCon; however, a bunch of those are passing references or Examiner.com articles (which I'm not sure count as reliable). TwiCon has gained some notoriety in the convention scene as a for-profit con with what some regard as exorbitant ticket prices ($255 plus a bunch of things that cost extra) and poor planning and organization. I'm not sure if this controversy has been covered by anything that counts as a reliable source, but it may be worth researching. Chris Johnson (talk) 08:29, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
- Well there's a newspaper article and TV station story on the front page of Google news. Specifically covered (not just mentioned) in Dallas Morning News, MTV.com, KDAF-TV, Dallas Observer, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth and also the maybe less reliable Examiner.com and Pegasus News. Significant coverage in multiple reliable sources. Magicalthirty (talk) 02:02, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
I added in a bunch of links & a brief synopsis of the fan reception to the con. Needless to say, neither the fans nor the stars appeared to be very happy. I tried to put it as non-partial as possible, but the fan reception needs to be noted in the article. Tokyogirl79 (talk) 19:19, 7 August 2009 (UTC)tokyogirl79
