It seems like there should be something about 2022 FG Con? Also where is the best place to look for online conventions?

Nothing organized by the community - see the post here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?67900-FG-Con-16-%96-over-and-out!&p=595077&viewfull=1#post595077

It's really weird that FGU - a game app - does not run something like this themselves.

Honestly surprised its left to community to do it. Which of course, is asking a lot as its a lot of work for them, which makes it completely understandable why they decided to "pass" on taking on that workload.

SmiteWorks didn't decide to pass on organizing future FG Cons. They just have different plans from the twice-yearly community organized FG Cons. As noted in the post I reference above: "It is, however, with great pleasure that I can tell you the name FG Con will live on! SmiteWorks are taking ownership of the FG Con name with our blessing and full support! SmiteWork’s exact plans for FG Con events will be outlined by them at a later date..."

I've heard that... but not "seen" that. Or even a hint of it.

That doesn't mean they've passed on doing anything - at this point they just haven't done anything public yet. They accepted the responsibility of taking it on, not taking on that responsibility would be passing - IMO to "pass" you have to actually say that you're passing/not doing anything.

Things get lost in priorities. It's been almost a year so I'm less inclined to "believe" that stating something will be done is the same as actually getting it done - and am more inclined to believe its been added to a todo list of indeterminate priority... and that is not the same thing at all. It's more like this... (and to be clear I was talking about the community having passed on doing FGCON because of the workload which was understandable)
