Hello everybody, 

I hear alot about 'the Queen convention' were alot of demo's and unreleased material has been showed. Has this been a one time thing or is this every year, and where?

This reminds me of a thread I recently read at QOL where a user over there called 'Bijou' who hates us now said we're all a bunch of rude nutters because someone here once told him or her to Google something.

Here, on the Greg Brooks thread: http://queenonline.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=616&start=15

Sometimes it really is the best answer though when the question is really broad. Not sure if that applies here or not, but I've never been to a convention so I can't really help.

There was some mildly interesting discussion about QZ v. QOL on that thread.  Is one really 'better' than the other, or do we just land where we land and justify it later because people are basically tribal?  I know of at least one person that started here but migrated there and is much more active over there than here, which is somewhat of a disappointment to me because I do like this person's posts.  And of course there may be people who are about 50/50 on both.

Can anybody state unequivocably that they have explicitly chosen QZ over the alternatives for the most part?  And why?  I can state that, but I'd have to think about why a little.

Well, one is fansite for Queen fans, and the other one is a site for fans of Queen.
Both have proven effective in the treatment of dandruff.

I used to help by providing the link to the threads whenever someone asks about a bootleg.  Nowadays I ask them to type the search words in the google box on the top of the page to search in queenzone.com because this is what I do to get the link for them.

There is an old saying from the bible that if you give people the fish, you feed them for the moment but if you teach people how to fish, you feed them for life.

QOL is very confusing.  I prefer it here.

.........................................................................................................

no offense to you personally, but "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" is a Chinese proverb.

NOT from the Christian, Catholic, or Orthodox Bible.

again, no offense intended - but as a Christian, and with too many unverified facts flying around the Internet as it is, i had to clarify. 

that being said - I prefer it here as well. =)

===========================

Yes, for sure. Really kind of fractured and rigid organization of topics.  I guess it might make some sense if you were used to it.   I much prefer the thread organization here, though threads can drop off fairly quickly.  But it's easy enough to dig them up.

In answer to the original question: The Queen Fan Club convention takes place every yeat. There have been many demos played there over the years and the ones that have made it into the public domain can be found here:
