CommunityCon 2020 Wrap-Up: A Learning Experience

What a weekend! CommunityCon 2020 has come to a close this year, and we had a ton of fun! We learned a lot, played a lot, and got to really see what an online convention might look like. Now that it’s over, the staff of the PAX Community Discord are taking a step back to really see what went well, what went poorly, and how we can make a better version of CommunityCon for next year! Let’s get this conversation started.

Getting Feedback

The best way to get started with feedback, is asking. We’ve put together a great form that takes 2 minutes to fill out. If you did even one thing during the event (or maybe nothing, because we were terrible planners), this form is for you, and we want to hear from you! Any feedback is good feedback to us, because we don’t want to see something as great as this stop happening yearly, so our next big step is making sure we know what attendees wanted from this and how we can give that to them.

Got 2 minutes? Let us know what we can do to get better!

Missed Something?

Feel like you missed something you really wanted see? Maybe you lived on the opposite side of the globe, and really wanted to learn more about a topic? We’ve got a collection of as many VODs as we could find so you can watch that thing!

Closing Thoughts

This event was our first foray into hosting an online collaboration of so many partners: from Another Indie publishers, to Small Streamer Community collabs, and even within our own community. We knew going in things wouldn’t be perfect, but in the end, we wanted to make this a great chance to learn and excite everyone in the community. We hope that after we’ve had a chance to look through the feedback, we can start planning CommunityCon 2021, and get bigger!
