Regarding Anniversary Dates[edit]

I think the confusion with various editors lies that an anniversary marks one calendar year. Two calendar years from March 2005 is March 2007, not April. Skipping a month wouldn't affect the actual date. Unless you consider the first "official" Slidercon to be April 2005, which as I remember, might be about right. --Kendricks Redtail 21:10, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

We decided last year to celebrate it in April for the reason that I am telling you. That's why we celebrated it again in April this year. There was no September 2005 SliderCon because it was replaced with Parking Lot Con. There had not been 12 months with SliderCons until April 2006. Again, my event, I think I know more about it than you; --Sema JayHawk
Oh, I understand. I'm not claiming more knowledge than you. Don't assume that. It's a little weird because 12 months HAD passed regardless of whether or not it occured that month. I think I have the perfect solution. :) --Kendricks Redtail 21:30, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Ok, what I've done here is use the neutral word "observe." In context of holidays, observing a holiday does not necessarily mean it has to coincide with the calendar date. For example, Martin Luther King's birthday is January 15th, but it is OBSERVED on the third Monday of every month. In the same context, Slidercon's actual anniversary is in March, but the anniversary is OBSERVED in April. I think this solution should satisfy all parties. --Kendricks Redtail 21:36, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

I was already editing my own version when you made your edits. I like my version better, it's more informative. Please do not feel the need to make any more changes. Thank You. --Sema JayHawk
A more informative version is generally regarded as better, but I should note that no one version is likely to be held free from changes - whether it be from you as the event organizer, or from Kendricks, or from anyone else. Each editor should edit the article as they see fit, though they are strongly encouraged to build on one another's edits to ensure that this process converges to a point where everyone is satisfied. See Wikipedia's article on ownership of articles for more details. --GreenReaper(talk) 22:00, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

I will note parenthetically that it's a good thing that every gathering of a dozen or so people isn't documented this thoroughly on WikiFur, or with this much vigor, or we'd be spending all of our time dealing with ridiculous nitpicky stuff like this.----DuncanDaHusky(talk) 23:44, 26 April 2007 (UTC)
