Thank you for your clarification.
I just wanted to say that we have people with experience on all parts of the scale from "let's camp" to "fully organised stage" and can help with that.
Good to know that. I am currently busy with preparing for RustFest and some other things I am participating in,
but I will certainly get back to working on this idea soon. I just want to have good plan and some supporters before I ask anyone for help. The burden of validating the idea should be on me.
My experience is that attempts to gauge an audience for an event by posting somewhere is that it is not a really good gauge.
Can you elaborate on that? Certainly having lot of people saying "I like it" could mean nothing (I've seen it often),
but it would be a good start - certainly better than silence. Perhaps I would need to come with exact date, location and detailed plan to get any feedback though.
Also, if you have a flexible plan where you can scale the event a little, it's cool if the event doesn't grow too big. Some of the best events I've been to had 15 people and a projector and that's it.
I wouldn't mind that - but I am not even there yet.
