Dating conventions

The skit violates the dating convention by having the characters reference the event, even though for them it should still be the mid-1990s.

Then long press on the convention you’re checked into.These photos will appear in your matches’s photo scroll with a Convexion logo icon.If you don’t see a photo of your matches’ badge, don’t swipe right on them.Dating other convention-goers allows you to enjoy the convention but also increases your safety because you can meet publicly in a safe, familiar space.Convexion is in beta, but we’re working to make dating at conventions easier, more enjoyable, and safer. Convexion requires users to take a photo of their convention badge or other proof they are attending the convention they have checked-into.🙂 If you’re wondering if Convexion will sell your data, we won’t: What if I don’t have a badge?

If you check-in to a convention but don’t have a badge for your photo, don’t worry.

There will be an option to take a new badge photo, or delete your check-in. Our terms of service clearly state that harassment or other forms of abuse are not allowed.

If you are involved in a conversation within Convexion that becomes abusive, you can block the user from contacting you again from within the messaging center (click the circle and cross icon at the bottom).

Despite its problems, this timeline is extensively used by fans and Warner Bros.'s timeline of the series (featured on the DVDs for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) contains dates that were interpolated from this dating system (such as Harry's birthday being on 31 July 1980 and his first defeat of Lord Voldemort being on 31 October 1981.) However, several anachronisms have crept through in the movies, such as featuring the destruction of the Millennium Bridge in the film version of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, even though the novel (and the film) are supposed to take place two years before the bridge was built.

In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the Dursleys are seen to have a flat-screen television, which were not commonly available in the mid-1990s.

You can take a photo with any piece of evidence that would convince someone you’re at the convention.
