Objective?

This map script is here as a subpage of the list of conventions by attendance, but I see no attendance information in the map. What would be the objective of the map, here? List only the conventions locations; or also list their dates, or attendance? Also, isn't it interesting to remove past events such as C-ACE? Thanks. Ekevu 16:48, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

There is not intended to be any attendance figures on the map - it's only meant to have the addresses and locations on it, though adding more information like dates would be fine as long as people kept it updated. This was simply the best place I could think of putting it, since it has a complete list of conventions here (I worked off that when I was creating the map). Not sure what you mean by "isn't it interesting" . . . but sure, if an event is gone, it should be removed, or alternatively we should figure out a way to separate current and past conventions. --GreenReaper(talk) 16:55, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
Actually I was looking for a convention close to Toronto between November and January, and I kind of missed this information. It's not like there is that many events anyway, that was more of a rant than real suggesting/complaining. I was just wondering why it's in "list of conventions by attendance".

Well, it's on the front page as well, at the bottom of Upcoming Events. :-) The link to edit it is here because I created it from this list. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:39, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
