LOS ANGELES, CA. D-Boy Productions, the creators of Ninja-Con has updated its website to make it a little more obvious that their date has changed from April 6th to June 8th. The location for the event, originally announced to be at the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo district remains the same.
Ninja-Con’s original website information was not clear enough for its web visitors when the event would take place, except for a posting on January 7, 2013 that the event was scheduled to take place on April 6, 2013. Visitors would have to dig through the website’s additional information (mostly listed as ‘Coming Soon’ under most tabs as of April 1, 2013) except for the “Convention” tab nestled under the “Location & Page” sub-tab. The masthead on the Ninja-Con website now features the updated date and location information as of April 1st.
Whether or not it was an April Fool’s joke to put the updated information on the website on April 1st or not, I’m pretty sure that there are a number of attendees that are not amused by this last minute update, especially since it was revealed that the organizers had been aware of this date change in February, according to sources close to the Ninja-Con staff.
