For those of you out there that happen to be IRC addicts like me, the con now has a presence on the MLP:FiM centered IRC server Canternet (irc.canternet.org) at #SweetAppleCon.
If you have a question and the forum moves too slow for you, then you can try asking in real time. Or just chat with other con-goers about the con, pony, or anything. I leave IRC running in the background constantly, so just say my name to set off my highlight, and if I'm not AFK I should respond within a minute or two. Drop in and say hi!
