    From reddit/r/defcon, the first link. It was made 4 months ago and pinned by moderators. 4th paragraph.

    "We plan to REQUIRE wearing masks and being vaccinated to participate in-person. We plan to socially distance seating and tables, and the convention properties will have increased air circulation and filtering. If the law requires us to do something different, we will do whatever the law requires."

    I guess it could have been made "aggressively" visible through an agreement while buying the ticket?

    Do you mean bring back "Spot the Fed" as preemptive 'events' on stage in the main speaking tracks where the audience cheers or boos the questions and answers as to whether the person being questioned is likely to be a fed or not? In what way would you like to see t come back?

    Some people said they were not informed. How did you learn about the vaccination requirements? If we were to try to make sure more people knew about the requirements, how would you look to solve this?

    Complaints can show us where we can be better. Ideas and proposals are golden.

    What did you like about DC29 which should come back? How can it be made better? What was awful at DC29 and how would you make it better?

    Thanks for any ideas you can provide!

    I empathize a bit, but should have been a bit more self aware and gone the safe mode route. You would have your badge which seems to be the main issue, you would still participate, and you wouldn't expose yourself or others (as a possible carrier, regardless of medical condition) during a global pandemic. Specially in an event that made it clear you had to be vaccinated to attend.

    I'm just saying.

    DEFCON has been amazing! Last year was my first, and I'm attending online again this year.

    With this year's theme being "Can't stop the signal", I wanted to provide some thoughts on the idea that a hybrid DEFCON may only be a one-time deal. In short, I would love to see a hybrid DEFCON continue in to the future. Having DEFCON available online made this convention available to me and a few others I know, and if I had to guess, many that I don't know around the globe. Whether it be due to finances, travel restrictions, work coverage issues, other conflicts, etc. having a hybrid DEFCON allows people to experience the fun when they otherwise would not be able to. It allows the signal to continue to spread, between those that have been a part of the signal for some time, and to new people hearing it for the first time. Being able to participate online has allowed me to interact with many cool people, especially as we all work to solve our badge puzzles and interact over talk Q&As. It has been a great experience. I recognize it is a lot of work, as DT said in the opening talk, and I truely do appreciate it.

    "Can't stop the signal, Mal..."

    Hello, we hope you are enjoying yourself at DEF CON 29, or if it is over, have enjoyed yourself at DEF CON 29.

    This is the annual thread asking for feedback.

    What was amazing, and should return for next year?
    What was problematic or difficult, and should be changed?

    Assume you are the Dark Tangent and you were considering how to run DEF CON 30... what would you change and how would you change it?

    Constructive criticism is the best, as we see an issue, and your proposed solution. Having them in public allows others to agree with your view and contribute to a solution.

    How would you make DEF CON 30 better than DEF CON 29?
