From all that I heard about Dashcon it seems the only positive it had was to bump the last (Anime)Reactor in 2009 to the second worst convention in history.
Fortunately we attended neither.

My regret is not making more friends while attending con's. I generally go with a friend or two but most of the time I running solo.

Anime Expo 2014... Lines, lines, lines, and more lines. There were even lines to get into lines. I think I missed out on half the con because I spent so much time waiting in a line to get into another line to see an event/panel. Missed out on half the panels because if didn't skip most of to get into a line I would have missed the bigger stuff. Haven't been to AX since they moved from Anaheim and from talking to people they said it's been steadily getting worse since they moved to LA. Oh yeah if you plan to ever go to AX... camp out the year before on Day One and spend $200+ on the VIP pass so you can bypass all the lines when you go the following year.

My regret is getting really smashed at A-kon last year (not this one's). It was probably one of the worst experiences i've ever had trying to walk around in texas heat while extremely hung over. Also not being single during cons isn't fun when there are a lot of cute cosplayers and parties and such.

My biggest regret about cons is probably that I only like going to cons with people I already know. I'm sure I could meet tons of new folks by going to more cons, but I find them rather lonely if I'm not with friends to start with.

Anime Midwest:
One of my friends was super sensitive about everything, ruined the fun a lot, and didn't even want to take the time to look in the dealer room. He also got very upset and annoyed when people asked for my photo...which I'm not sure why...because he got stopped a lot also? In short, he ruined the whole experience and made me regret even going...kind of.

C2E2 this year. I went with my girlfriend who was completely uninterested in the entire event, and her attitude kind of ruined the experience for me.

Never take uninterested people to cons. Both you and them will have a bad time. I would have left her at home or in the hotel room and checked in on her every few hours. I would never drag someone to a con who didn't want to be there. Cons are hell, even for people who love them.

It's usually along the lines of having to work and not being able to attend a con, or I spent too much/not enough at the charity auction. Some years are great for artwork, and other years, not so much.
