We actually came up with a definition of a fan, albeit a partial one phrased in the negative: Anyone who comes to Minicon just because theres free beer in the consuite is not a fan. That year there was more alcohol and more kinds* of alcohol than at any Minicon before or since; all the real fans who liked to drink brought their own and shared. The policy mainly discouraged the jerks who liked to hang out at the consuite and hit on the women. We did that for one year and happily went back to serving beer and blog.
