Sorry I didn't manage to catch up with your or Martin there.

Just one quibble with your post. Worldcons in non-English language places are so rare (70, 90, 07, 17) and 90 and 17 only barely count since the English of the locals is so good and so ubiquitous, that you can't generalise from it in any way. Each of them was also the first Worldcon in that country (none of them have had a second). It's been getting harder to predict Worldcon membership sizes and the budgetting is similarly hard. While Helsinki made some mistakes, they did quite well under the circumstances. Dublin has to look very hard at contingency plans for expanding space or clear ahead of time limiting attendance, I think.
