    Ok, so, i'm proposing to avoid confusion we adopt some standards for meets.


    A pico is 2-5 people.
    a nano is 6-19 people
    a mini is 19-100 people


    101-500 is what?


    and if we ever got 500 blinky nutters together?

    I think who cares what we call it really.

    we have been calling minis minis for years and they have been from a handful of people to over 30

    in the end I don't think the name of a get together is going to make any difference to the things learnt or shared at the get together

    If you could get 500 people to attend that would be a Mega event.

    I think the name really doesnt matter. But most already in the hobby know them as minis both here and in the US. So adopting new names will just add confusion for no real gain because what do you call it at first when you are gaining interest for attendees and final numbers are never known until the day.
    Maybe the evolution of our hobby will eventually create a major national meet and this may be where we use the name mega, major, blinkycon or any other appropriate name
    just my 2 cents worth :D

    What happens if, on the day, an extra person turns up and takes the attendance from 19 to 20 or vice versa. Would the event have to be renamed? :p

    The only confusing part is wanting to change the name, for what reason? who knows, Yet who cares. In NZ call it whatever you feel the need to call it, Here in Australia and the rest of the Globe we will call it a "Mini" ;)

    You are obviously delusional as no I don't really care about it, your the one that made a massive issue out of it. Do as you feel Andrew. I was trying to be nice in the beginning but I no longer have time for keyboard warriors like yourself. Have a nice Day
