From what it looks like, all future Minecons will no longer be a gathering of people and rather an online livestream.
By definition a convention is a meeting of people about a certain topic/hobby.
Minecon is no longer that and is instead an annual live stream about Minecraft, so should it still be called a convention?
Should Minecon's name be changed, dropping the con part?
Well, it's still a convention. It's just more accessible for people who can't afford to go to a actual minecon. It's a actual convention for the small live audience, large minecon parties and of course, me, the costume contest winner
