Age Limits?
« on: April 13, 2009, 09:16:32 PM »

How old do you have to be to get into the rave?

And I know the con. is open 24/7- or from what I've heard-, so is the con open 24/7 for people over 18 or everyone?

And what events do you have to be 18+ to attend?

first of all Please do not call it a rave due to the bad things that are usually associated with raves and fanime has no affiliation with such things like that Fanime is a family friendly con
 
Second there is no age limit to most events, the only age limits that require you to be 18+ with ID are the Hentai rooms, Yaoi/Yuri rooms and most Yaoi events that say 18+. It depends as well if certain panels have adult material and such

Usually they will have it stated on the schedule at the con what events are 18+

Because apparently calling it a Rave is bad. Why can't a Dance be bad?

I went and I was 16. So no there is not.

I'm indifferent about calling something a Rave being bad*. Why don't we just say that we should call it the "Dance" because that's what the name is? :P

To some people, a "rave" (when referring to a dance), is as bad a "gang" (when referring to a group of people); it's the negative connotation.

Well a "rave" is not necessarily a bad thing, it's just that when drugs and such get involved it gives it a bad rap. However, the dance at Fanime is NOT a rave. A rave is an underground party that you usually need special tickets or an invitation to and the music is usually techno, trance, jungle, happy hardcore, etc. lol I just find it annoying when people call the dance at Fanime a rave, when it definitely is not. I wonder how that got started anyways? :D

people that have never been to a rave call it a rave:P its more of a club environment, maybe even a lounge.....or best yet, a club in the castro with a lot more straight people:P I love house:)

but yah "rave" is intimately connected to drugs and that is an image we do not even want it getting close to.

I wouldn't call it a lounge.  Not enough seats to chill in.  At least last year there wasn't.

Which location are we thinking of?
I'm thinking the far end of the convention center (J i believe).  I saw no seats, everyone was dancing but no seats.

I did walk in there a few times and most of the time there were no seats available. There was maybe only one time where the chairs were free.

Hmm, well I was only there on Fri and Sun, and not much for either.
Must have just been the time I was there.

wow you sounded angry in the first part. and people do go to cons drunk or high. I've seen some. And just because it's called a rave does not mean that everyone is doing drugs. Half the girls dress inapporiately anyway. just like a rave.

I just came across something really amusing, ok so everyone says not to call the dance a rave, but look at this message describing the dance

"You want to do some raving, but you don't feel like walking or driving all the way to the nearest nightclub?"

Raving? Wait, I thought this wasn't supposed to be a rave, lol.  ;D

The areas where they are held are subject to change but they've been in the actual convention area for quite some time.
