Big Event Showcase / Re: MusicFest tips

Depending on the guest, its not unreasonable to plan on lining up at least an hour before the scheduled time.  That line can wrap around the block.

Hotel and Facilities / Re: Waitlist Experiences
« on: February 12, 2018, 01:53:01 PM »
I've had very positive experiences when I've been on the waitlist for anything other than Hilton/Marriott.  There was a period of about 3 years where by the time I got in to reserve a hotel, only stray days at the Double Tree were left, and each time I waitlisted I managed to get the whole weekend at Double Tree before convention time.

While on the phone with Housing one time, I asked the likelyhood of switching hotels to Hilton or Marriott.  I was told that its incredibly unlikely to get Hilton or Marriott via waitlist UNLESS you have at least 1 day booked at one of them already.

That is just how fanime hotels roll. Many Congoers will go in groups and stuff as many people as possible into a single room to save cost, beds be damned.
And somehow, they always end up next door to me x-x

At the summer SacAnime, they incorporated the winners of the Cosplay Wrestling Federation panel into their main event, which was pretty cool.  I didn't catch it this year at Winter though.

Registration / Re: 2018 Reg Opens Nov 7th
« on: November 15, 2017, 05:24:17 PM »
An hour after it opened up, I looked at my twitter feed on my phone and saw the link.  Clicked it, did the whole registration from my phone and had zero issues.

That's great news!

Things in the Universe / Re: Ghost in the Shell live action film teasers
« on: November 20, 2016, 09:39:16 AM »
I had been skeptical up until I saw the trailer, due to the track record of most anime to live action films.  Now I'm feeling like this thing might actually be good, at very least respectable.
 
The race thing is a complete red herring anyhow, (cyborgs have a race?) as only certain Americans seem have a problem with it, meanwhile people in Japan couldn't give two shits.

You think the possibility of identity theft and/or stolen information is something to laugh about?

With your name, address, DOB, and email, criminals can do whatever they want. Enjoy having your credit ruined, fraudulent activities being conducted under your name, and spending years trying to repair these damages. Don't think it'll happen to you? That's what every company thinks before they get hacked...

A company's disclosure of its privacy policy is in the norm. Fanime is the odd one out here -- needlessly collecting all this information and not revealing what they are doing with it, how they are protecting this information, and how we can opt out.
I think paranoia over information already part of public record is something to laugh about, yes.  Let me know when they start collecting SSNs and bank account numbers.

Oh geez, lol.

General Convention Discussion / Re: Official Lost and Found Thread
« on: May 28, 2016, 01:26:08 AM »
I lost my iPhone 6 near the entrance of Ninja Games/Speed Dating.  I sat down against the wall, and then walked off without it. Upon returning to the area 30 min later, someone had walked off with it.  I tried to locate it online, but it said the phone was turned off... which means someone turned it off, since it had a full charge.  If you find it laying around, or decided to keep it but are having second thoughts, please turn it in to the Lost and Found, no questions asked.

It was in a Mario case like this: 

Thank you!

My friend just cancelled a Double Tree reservation for the whole weekend, so something may free up there soon.

This is honestly really upsetting. Today is the drop cut off.

It's not happening.

I know I'm just being a spoiled brat, but I'm really upset about this!

As a side note, does anyone know anything about parking at or around the Doubletree?
I've stayed at the Double Tree 2013-2015, and parking there wasn't a problem.  Arrived 9-10am ish Friday each time.

Good to know... What about cost? I usually end up finding somewhere around $7/day around the com center.

Cost I'm not sure... somehow I don't remember paying anything, and I'm not sure if I just forgot because it was affordable, or if its because I'm a Hilton Rewards member.
