@Bird, sorry for the late reply, life has been busy.
I would love to sit down and talk with you and @Reuben about your ideas. We're always grateful for any help we can get.
@Bird, thank you for the feedback. I understand your concerns and that is honestly why we aren't charging admission to the event today.
Nerd Louisville is a charitable non-profit and the money we bring in goes to support at-risk youth and other nerdy initiatives. For example, we just spent $3,000 to buy the kids at the West End School robotics kits for their Maker Space. We rely on the support of others to continue running events, keep this website going, and to help others find gaming groups. I think a lot of the time we don't do a great job of advertising all of the work that goes on behind the scenes and with our charitable partners to keep Nerd Louisville running smoothly.
One idea I have had, rather than charging admission like we do at our Slur Your Role event, is to create a "Nerd Louisville Membership" at $10 a month and give all members complete access to Slur and FNRPGs with no additional fee. If you didn't have a membership, the cost to play would be $5. If we do go this route, I think I might still resist pre-registration for FNRPG for the same reasons you mentioned. What would you think of a structure like that?
We will continue to brainstorm, but for now, there are no immediate changes coming. I appreciate the feedback and I love that you are willing to support Nerd Louisville via voluntary donations at the event.
On Tuesday, July 3rd, Nerd Louisville and Book and Music Exchange - Highlands present GameKnights at Mag Bar -- a rousing night of beer, bourbon, and board games in the heart of Old Louisville.
