For the Board
Minnstf Document Digitization Project
Otherwise known as MinDocDigPro. This is an ongoing effort to digitize Minnstf (and in particular Minicon) documents. Here's the organizing page of the project.
General-interest Minicon stuff
Minicon continues, but since Minicon 53, the programming folks have organized things elsewhere, not on the wiki (but future programming heads should feel free to use the wiki again if they like).
- Minicon 5-year Not-a-plan -- approved document covering Minicons 46-50
- 2nd Minicon 5-year Not-a-plan -- unapproved draft document covering Minicons 51-55
- Minicon Home Page - contains links to all home pages for previous Minicons
- Minicon is on Wikipedia!
- Minicon mini-history - quick summary of recent Minicons including name of chair and attendance
Resources for Minicon (and other con) running
- Running a Small Con - Tips on planning and running a small SF convention
- Hosting the Minicon Pool Party
- Hosting Minicon parties at other conventions
- What the Chair Does
Take a look at the Minicon 53 Programming Brainstorm.

- See also previous Minicons' webpages for old program books, pocket programs, and what we said to members on the web.
Moderator Tip Sheet
The Moderator Tip Sheet was developed by the Programming Committed for Minicon 24. Besides general tips on how to plan and run a panel at an SF convention, the Tip Sheet includes a handy dandy worksheet for the moderator to use before and during the panel. Now and then other cons ask if they can use it. We always say yes.
- General thoughts on Registration
- FAQs of sorts (there's some overlap between these two):
- Interaction between GoH and Registration
- The Pocket program
Signs and At-Con Communications
- How Many Easels we need at the con
- Art Show Information
Blog is the traditional drink of Minicon. It's a sweet fruit punch, typically spiked with liberal amounts of vodka. The nonalcoholic variant is referred to as "St. Paul blog" for historical reasons. See the Blog Recipe.
Account creation & editing privileges
How do you register to be able to edit this wiki? The Mnstf wiki has been the victim of large numbers of spammers. Because of this, we've set it so that only people who are registered can edit the wiki, and that you need to email a sysop to register. Sysops are noted on the user list. As of March 25, 2011, the sysops are Jiawen, Laurel and Straitm. Note to sysops and people trying to edit the wiki: As of January 2015, people need to be in the "approved" group in order to edit pages (it's not good enough to just have an account, since lots of spambots have accounts already). xyzzy
