I submitted a panel request at the end of January, and just realized I did not get some kind of an e-mail confirmation.  Could you confirm if you received a panel request for The Comedy Club panel?  Thanks!

Replies are coming to everyone either today or tomorrow. Sorry for the delays, all.

Edit @ 12:15am on the 12th - 14 more submissions left to reply to. Those will receive a reply tomorrow.

Panel forms submitted prior to March 10th, replied to. I have 5 more submitted on or after that date, which should get replies within the next week.

Preliminary listings of guest panels will probably also be up within a week or two.

Sorry everything is a little late this year, everyone.

When is the last day for panelists to submit their suggestions?  I'm planning my Fanime'09 and I want to make sure I can host my panel when I'm free.

I'm really really not trying to be pushy, impatient, rude, or redundant, but I just want to make sure.  So pending panels will be (or have a chance to be) confirmed if we reply to the e-mail you sent us, correct?  I'm just checking because e-mail is very tricky, so I'm worried that maybe it got lost or something.  If not, I'm terribly sorry!  I understand how busy the panel staff must be and I'm completely willing to wait.

Goodness, it was really hard to type that message.

Pending merely means that when I put it into the post, I hadn't had a response yet, and wanted one before confirming the panel completely. If you've replied and your panel hasn't moved, all it probably means is that I'm behind. 'Panel Staff' will be very busy at the convention, but at the moment, the only one replying to you is me. ^-^; And I'm rather behind this year, so please bear with me.

As an additional note:
All panels submitted prior to Midnight on March 27th (well, midnight is technically the 28th, but you know what I mean, hopefully... before midnight on Friday) will go into the program guide if I approve the panel. You won't get left out because I'm behind. I guarantee that if you submitted before then, I'll make final selections and get you into the guide. If you submit after midnight on Friday the 27th, you still have a chance for your panel to be considered - you just won't be listed in the program guide.

^^ Thanks everyone. Sorry I'm a bit behind this year.

I'm completely caught up on replying to the initial panel requests now. If you submitted, and haven't had any response at all, something went amiss with your submission.

I'll be hoping to catch up on replying to other e-mails from y'all in the next day or so, but feel free to send me a second e-mail if it's been more than a week since you mailed me and haven't yet had a response.

^^;; I realized yesterday that I'm getting approximately two thousand e-mails a week right now, so it's perfectly possible that I overlooked something or forgot to reply.

Thanks again everyone!

Small fun fact....

At my current tally... (and I have not yet tallied all the guest panels...)

I have 78 panels, with roughly only 2 or 3 unconfirmed.

Most of those still on the pending list, are from panelists who submitted several panels apiece, and they're only still pending because I may not be able to host all of them if the rest of the schedule is over-full.

And yes, it's nearly 3am, and I'm still up sending e-mails. ^-^;;

I still feel really bad for you, having to call all those people :/.  I'm so nervous when talking on the phone, I'm not sure I could do it.

Again, good luck!  You're still doing an awesome job.

8:20am - Moved a few more from pending to confirmed. Added a few Guest panels - more to come!

Panel tally is up to 80 right now. I haven't yet had a chance to add up all the times, because several panels are more than one hour long.... I'm beginning to wonder if there's any point in leaving submissions open after the deadline though, because I just might already have a full schedule.

If that's true, I'm very pleased about it!

Won't know for sure until I tally things up later.

I -think- there's still a -little- breathing room. Maybe.

Edit @ 11am: Make that 84 for the tally.
Edit @ 1pm: Make that 86.
Edit @ 2:30pm: 89

Hey, without all of you, my department wouldn't even exist. ^-^ It's not as if I had to call everyone. I think the number of phone calls was less than a dozen. The vast majority was e-mail.

Thanks for the props though! =^-^= It's always nice to know the panelists are happy with us. xD; Keeps me going at 3am when I'm tired.

Wow! ^^

So, I tallied up the hour total for all the panels listed here, including the as yet pending ones.

My results: 108 hours of panels

My panel schedule only allows for 117 hours of panels... and there are still many more Guest panels yet to be added.

I might be able to create a little more room by having some of the Guest panels hosted in the main video room, we'll see.

From the looks of it though, the schedule is going to be full, and I'll have to turn down some of the pending panels simply due to lack of available schedule times. Those who submit after today may not be able to get in.

Is it too late to make any changes to our panel title or description?  If it is, that's totally fine, but I'm just wondering o_o.  I'm not really agreeing with the title I made 2 months ago XD!  However, it won't kill me if it's too late.

Send it to me right away and I'll see what I can do.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but if you've submitted a panel through the panel request form, you'll get a reply from me via e-mail when I'm able to send one. At this point, that probably won't be until next week. Right now my focus is on getting the already approved panels into a rough schedule, seeing exactly how many I can fit in, and preparing the layout for the panel listings on the website.

that explains it thank you. I misunderstood. I thought we would have to respond to a message on the forums vs. an email.

Sounds good. Thank you.
