At 9:00pm on Friday of DashCon 2014, hotel management gave con staff an ultimatum: raise $17,000 by 10:00pm, or the con gets shut down.

One incredible half-hour later, the staff announced that enough money had been raised. I just had to capture the energy and emotion in the room at that wonderful moment.

We are DashCon. We are tumblr. We are fandom. We are the champions, we will stand as one, and we will NOT be crushed.

For real though, the people who went to DashCon aren’t the problem and they shouldn’t be made fun of, okay?? They wanted to go to a fun con and were promised a good time it isn’t their fault. The people running the con are the ones that caused all the problems they were very poorly organized and everything was a mess just yeah I don’t know how they even made DashCon happen in the first place it’s their fault not the people who were simply attending. Edit: to clarify this does not mean you should be cruel to the ones responsible as they are people regardless of anything and should be treated as such.

The ball pit meme is never going to get old though. I think we can all agree on that.
