A Minicon poll
Poll #1959780 Minicon50Anniversary

In the Minicon 50 proposal it calls Minicon 50 "our big anniversary", says that "being a big anniversary will not attract any additional members", and refers to "Anniversary festivities". On the Minicon 50 web page it refers to Minicon 50 as being a "special 4 day anniversary edition". What anniversary do you think Minicon 50 is celebrating?

The 50th anniversary of the launching into space of the world's first space nuclear power reactor, the SNAP-10A experimental nuclear reactor. (April 3rd, 1965)
1(8.3%)
The 48th and ½ anniversary of the founding of MnStf. (November 25th, 1966)
2(16.7%)
The 47th anniversary of Minicon 1. (January 6, 1968)
7(58.3%)
Something else. Which you will explain in the comments.
2(16.7%)

As a followup question

If it is the 47th anniversary of Minicon 1 that is being celebrated, why would that be considered a "big" anniversary?

I thought it was going to be the 50th Minicon; the count does not agree with the number of years because there were a couple of years with 2 Minicons.

So what you're saying is, we should just celebrate the 50th Minicon and not the anniversary of something that happened 50 years ago? You literal-minded goofball.

Also how long did you search for something that happened 50 years prior to the 50th Minicon? Maybe Wikipedia makes it easy to do that now.

"being a big anniversary will not attract any additional members",

It's almost like you're quoting someone who has a history of being a bit apeshit with the budgeting, and might have some after-the-fact justification. Either that or I'm projecting my own feelings onto this.

It's from the second paragraph of the Budget section on page two of the Minicon 50 proposal that I linked to.

Yes it is. There are many quotable sentences in that proposal.
