Fanime 2017 Cosplay Gatherings News Update 2/20
« on: October 26, 2015, 02:31:50 PM »

Hello Everyone,

Year 2 of me being the head of this department is nice. I got more of a grasp as to what my boss did from previous years, I got some policy changes for this next year that is critical for all the organizers to know (lets just say I had a headache with this previous year in some of the planning, most of it was my bad in comms, this policy change will make things clear for all.), and im finally getting back into con planning mode with a job in hand. I am announcing an announcement for the start of the year, 1/1/2017 as for all of my policy plans to be reveiled. gathering organizers, just know your going to be poking in here more often to maintain your gathering. and the hangout will be greater than ever!

Till the first, This is the madman from the reach,

Imperial

YELLOWEVERYBODYTHISISPURGE ,

Funny done, yay. Anywho, Update time, and quite a bit of news.

1. I have intituted a set of policies in regards to cosplay gatherings in order to maintain order between cosplayers, and establish rules. Its mostly for my sanity, but there for yours as well. You can read about it HERE

2. The big Fanime staff meeting is Sunday, January 8th. If you ever wanted to join Cosplay Gatherings staff, or wanted to meet the madman in charge of the department, you can do that at the meeting, place to be determined(its always one of the hotels of Fanime, so, can't go wrong there), but time is 99% of the time 2:30pm. At this meeting you get to learn alot of the con, and how much fun you can have in staffing it. if you want to say "SKREW THE MEETING I HAVE INTERNETZ", you can apply to a department anywhere here

3. Photos. We have had a problem with photos this year in getting them done in a timely matter. What I can do is point you to some of our photographers we had last year and allow you to get at the photos they each did until i can edit them all into a place proper. Here are some of their works (X) (x) X

And as soon as I get a decent group done of photos, I will post them and point you as to where they are.

Thats all she wrote for this round. I hope to see you all at the meeting if you wish, but until next time, this is the madman from the Reach,

Imperial

So, I do owe this area an update.

 I myself appolgize that I don't have the form ready yet. I am waiting on my IT guy(It has to be done inhouse, so I cant take others work on google forms due to "lack of professionalism"), but he does have a good chunk of it done, just a matter of adding some things to the form. The moment he sets it live is the moment I will post here and update you on this.

Photos. The department that is responsible for posting said pictures has not finished last year's. I keep asking the chain as to updates, and yet to hear a solid date for them to be posted. Something that I myself may be doing is getting an outfit to do the watermarking so we can post them in a more timely matter. The person in charge knows this, and the editor in-house knows this. the voices are heard by me and the higher ups, and I just am trying to make things work out.

Gathering spots. So, Bad news, we (the department, not the con) are losing G4, the Raiser stages in the Hub. I don't know if I can say what will be there in its place yet, as I think the higher ups plan on announcing that at a later date, I will confirm and edit this accordingly. That said, I am being denied at putting a gathering space on the ground floor, so I currently do not have a replacement for it. Organizers should plan accordingly, let alone everyone else who used that space to sit down and cool off (There is always the Cosplay hangout, come drop by and check it out.)

New Room: We as a department gained a new room. We shall call this room for this year "Fantasic Cosplays, and Where to Find them." What this room will be used for is for photographers (not ours, but the folks that often set up outside) as a photography area, where pros can set up with backdrops and lights, the whole shebang in a controlled room. We plan to have the area used as a means to allow other photographers to do shoots inside with all means needed. More on this soon.

I think that's all I want to announce now. Thanks!

Yeah, I forgot my love again.

We launched the Gatherings list, and the Form. I ideally would be updating weekly, but I just sometimes cant sink the time proper to work on the applications in a week. I will try, but I will not promise anything for now.

Gatherings form can be found here : https://apps.fanime.com/2017/gatheringapp/

Hi! Thanks for the update. Will there be a specific Facebook page/group set up for finding and organizing Fanime Panels? Or will they still be primarily organized here with the official list posted on FB/Twitter?

I was wondering who was going to take over. Congrats!

Sad about the move to FB, as I don't have an account, but I'm also not planning on hosting gatherings, so hopefully it won't be too much of an issue. Will there will be posts here in the forums that I can either reply to with with plans for a certain gathering, or so I can at least see which gatherings are being held without having to dig through FB and hope I find the posts there? At the very least, will there be a complete list of gatherings posted here, so I can view them?

So, for clarifacation, I will aim to have all info on gatherings both on here and social media's for THIS YEAR. I will make sure one links to the other, so you know where the mothership will be stationed at both areas.
 
At the very least, will there be a complete list of gatherings posted here, so I can view them?
With the new form, I Hope, Hope, that I can make a master list on the Fanime Host Site (as in, not hidden in the forums, like, easy peasy from front page of fanime website) that will either be a mirror or the same as I post here and social medias.
Unfortunately, I cant speak on their behalf, ill beep them to check in here.
I'm sorry I miss typed. I meant Cosplay Gatherings, NOT fanime panels. I must have had panels on the brain. my bad.
I am still asking on that (since its a representation of con outside of here, I do need to ask), again, soon as everything is nailed down for me to report out, I will.
