This is great news!  If it ends up being as short the other days this weekend then I'll get a one day pass after all.

I wonder why they didn't let people beforehand know what they were planning on doing to make it go so smoothly, though!  Maybe they didn't want to get people's hopes up in case it didn't turn out.  But had we known, we would have preregistered.

I read in a different thread about the printing on site and how long it had taken in the test runs so I was feeling really hopeful about this year.

Who'd ever thought there would be a thread like this? It's only day 0, but it's already one of the best Fanimes ever

Major kudos! I was a group leader for eight people and I had a friend time me on how long it took me to get through the "maze" and get the badges. 7.5 minutes. Best Day 0 ever since 2005.

We got there about 4pm, and my group was totally floored at seeing the "maze" almost deserted! Major props to the reg team for the successful murder of Linecon! :D

Dude. I won't be getting to Fanime until tomorrow afternoon, and I am FLOORED in the best way possible just reading this thread. My group made plans to leave super early tomorrow morning in anticipation of the huge lines for badge pickup, but now I'm feeling this growing sense of elation at the thought that maybe I won't actually be subject to a long wait after a six-hour car ride! ;)

We'll see how it pans out when I arrive tomorrow, but I'll say thanks in advance! Way to go, staff!

I have to say to the entire registration team you guys did an awesome job today.


The only real reason for people to complain is if the group leader wasn't in line when registration started. But in the end with there being no lines that ended up being a non issue.

The only group that might not have been happy is the swap meet. I think they got slammed due to everyone having their badges.

I was working line control for a few hours, and I actually heard some people complaining it was too short. :P

Haha, I joked around with friends that the spirit of the con had been diminished a bit because we didn't have to wait in line. I had so much extra time, I didn't know what to do.

I don't know what the registration department did this year to streamline things, but oh my god did they get it right =).  I got there Friday at about 2:30, and it took me a total of maybe 5 minutes tops to power walk through the yellow tape, pick up my group's badges, and get the bags.  All I can say is thank you, registration, and keep it up for the years to come!  =D

Seriously, bless the hearts of whoever came up with the new reg system.  From entering the line area to badge in hand, it was less than 6 minutes 40 seconds, and most of that was spent walking up and down the taped-off isles. :p

I was so pleasantly shocked by how smooth and easy the reg system was this year! Kudos, staff, you did an incredible job turning the reg situation around! I'm super impressed. :D

Definitely kudos to how quickly registration was able to process! The only drawback was the maze and we can't even cut through the tape even with no line. I honestly thought that was absolutely unnecessary and a complete waste of time. If there's no line, why waste our time walking through all that? They should have at least taken some of those poles/caution tape down.

I honestly thought that was absolutely unnecessary and a complete waste of time. If there's no line, why waste our time walking through all that? They should have at least taken some of those poles/caution tape down.

The tape and line has to be there for any line that may form in the future. If they take it down and then the line starts blocking fire exits etc, now they have to worry about re-positioning people and establishing boundaries so that people don't jump the line.

Additionally, by building in that maze they also helped to stagger the people who got to the door. For example, if there is a line of 10 people at the front of the maze and then 10 more people enter the "maze" and take about a minute to get to the front, now the line is no longer there. It gives registration time they need to process any residual line.

Seriously, if all people have to complain about was having to walk through an EMPTY line maze, I'd say Registration honestly has nothing to change.
