This was addressed in the 'BronyCon Chair History Discussion' panel. They said that they considered doing this, but felt that it would not work, because autistic people tend to have narrow interests, and many attendees were just there for MLP. (Yes, they actually said this, on the record.)
Who knows what the future holds, much like Chris I doubt these people can just "let go" of what is quientessentially their life's work. Give it a year or two and especially if A new G5 show starts production and I'm sure they'll post some pic on Twitter that's their logo in a new vibrant colors and a cryptic messege like soon...

They were actually quite firm that this would be the last BronyCon. The officially stated reason was that they were worried about declining attendance. I don't really believe this because the number of people that showed up was more than they were able to comfortably accommodate.

One former Bronycon staff member said (not in front of the cameras, and not officially) that there had been some interpersonal drama between the event organizers. To me, this seems to be a far more likely explanation. However, they were very professional in how they handled it. The staff got a lot of questions on this, and all of them stayed on script. They said this is the last BronyCon, and that's it.
 

Hmmpf!

You should take into account that this years con is taken only half of the building compared to the previous years while the attendance is doubled if I remember. The other half is used for Rubik Speedcubing Championship of all things.

Really? I hadn't noticed. The other half looked empty to me. I guess they were there, but attendance was light.

Numbers show that attendance has been slowly but steadily declining over the years. I'm sure that the reason for so many people to show up to this one it's because it's the LAST Bronycon and people wanted to be there before it was over. I'm willing to bet that if they pulled a "Gotcha!" and did another Bronycon next year attendance numbers wouldn't be as high as this one.

All good things must come to an end, let us take solace knowing that unlike our cpu goddess lolcow we can all come to terms with that and move on with our lives.


Still if that gotcha we'll be back thing does happen I'd bet my bottom dollar Chris would say it's "da merge" and bronycon 2.0 is the first sonichucon

Yeah, but 4000-5000 people would have been manageable. 10,000+ they were not prepared for and it was pretty chaotic.

One of the worst things about being in a fandom is the end of one. A fandom is a community, a sense of belonging, an outpost where you can express yourself.

Take that away and your few remaining options is to join a message board named after an adorable green fruit bird.
Chris has done that twice already, it can't happen a third time (without him being trolled, anyway... for the third time)

Looks like some horsefucker got a ride with Chris on Sunday and had dinner with him.

This seems like totally reliable information that I'll blindly trust any day.
Well, I got more pictures. I'm not super into the Chris stuff but I got a couple more. I'd post the in restaurant pictures but IDK if the other guys would be okay with it. But here's the unedited full res pictures of the car and in the car, I had to cut em down for 4chan.
An edit so I'm not double posting
Any more details? What did he say or do? Did he smell? What did you have for dinner?
Alright, so we went to a burger place for dinner, recommend to Chris by someone. Chris didn't smell, or at the very least I was drunk enough not to notice (definitely not nearly as bad as some other people at the con though, she was tolerable). At dinner, Chris talked a lot about Sonichu and a crystal she had, seems like it was some new age beliefs about magic in the crystals or something. We made small talk about the con, and I was talking with several people. One of the guys at the table ordered his burger with ghost pepper cheese, and Chris mentioned something about it, maybe having eaten it before. It was an interesting experience and overall Chris seemed pretty alright during it. I told her to drive safe before we parted our ways, but I guess that didn't work out. I'm not here to talk mad shit or anything, but my brother is pretty interested in Chris chan despite being a normie so I figured I'd get some pictures and I got more than I really bargained for.

What in particular did he say about Sonichu? Anything noteworthy?

And was it in response to people asking about it, or did he just start rambling about Sonichu by himself?

Btw: How did he introduce himself? Was it just a casual “Hi I’m Christine!” Or did you get the whole autistic script: “I’m Christine Weston Chandler, creator of Sonichu and Rosechu, the electric hedgehog Pokémon yada yada”

He was prompted to speak about Sonichu at the table, and was showing us the binder he brought around. I believe he talked about some of the lore, but I really am not as familiar with it as I used to be. @Jaiman might be a better source on it, since he was there as well and probably could go into more detail.

I can't imagine eating with Chris. I'm reminded of that video of him eating the pizza where he acts like a literal toddler, bug eyed, chewing with his mouth open, food falling out and making slurping sounds. Has he learned better eating habits, or is he still a pig?

I was trying to eat a messy burger myself so I wasn't really looking at everyone else's eating habits myself, just trying to eat my own food. I know you guys like to document every single little piece of the dude, but I was kinda just along for the ride.

One thing that did slightly concern me a bit was that on the ride back to the con center was Chris was hatching eggs on Pokemon Go on both phones on the center console while at stoplights. I knew a guy who used to do that and IMO it can lead to distracted driving. Hopefully that is not something that happens normally with Chris.
