This panel discusses some common do’s and don'ts of convention and “nerd scene” behavior, such as: What’s the best way to compliment someone on their costume?

Join members of the Nerdiquette team as they discuss “nerd-etiquette” and offer constructive solutions on dealing with these and many other related convention-scene issues.
