There's no need for medieval or fantasy warfare if you're willing to compromise on things you don't care that much about. So tell people why you don't like an idea at the start of negotiations.
I discovered the Pretoria Pokemon Go community and caught a special legendary to commemorate the occasion. Have you found your community?
I got an article request for tips on compromising wedding stuff with your partner. Negotiation works for weddings; I got my practice in while organising conventions.
When you're organising something cool like a geek event or wedding, people get excited. Here are some tips on dealing with excited people and what to look out for!
For some reason, I'm shy to ask for help with my wedding. I lucked out by having a craft group who listened to me being excited to marry Hardus, and then offered to help. When people do this, you should accept their help. But is it okay to accept help from non-guests?
