Another Fanime come and gone. That means another Fanime Swap Meet come and gone. As part of my desire to keep improving Swap Meet year after year, I'm looking for your honest feedback on the event in the hopes that we can improve on certain things for next year.
Let me just state right off the bat that I understand the general registration was an issue, as was the fact that the registration process mentioned vouchers to get to the front of the line that we didn't have. That particular confusion was on me. Based on the state of registration in the past, I made the decision that vouchers wouldn't be necessary, and thus didn't request any while setting up Swap Meet. I then forgot to have the language about that removed from the registration process, which lead to some confusion. I'll definitely be addressing that in planning for next year.
I also know that we started a little late on Thursday due to check-in taking longer than anticipated. While part of that might be from the aforementioned registration issues, it's an easy fix for next year. I'll probably just start seller check-in two hours early instead of an hour and a half. We had two hours on Friday and were able to get a larger number of people in and ready to go early.
So, with that said, any feedback you might have on this year as opposed to years past, or thoughts going forward, are welcome.
