I have Gintama 4-8 maybe we can work out a trade for the beck mangas?

Ooh, that'd be awesome! What days will you be there?
I will be there all weekend and day zero

Awesome! I'll be there every day hehe (not sure about day zero just yet). Maybe we can meet Saturday afternoon-ish?

Generally volunteers can't sign up until at the convention after they get their badge. You can for the most part choose where you volunteer though ;)

Yuya Matsushita should come back again for another performance.

Having GreeeeN also would be amazing, but it probably won't happen ^^;

teach them to be more responsible and attentive to the attendees and not spend time on their smartphones or talking to their friends when a fan is asking a question or needs help - you gotta be responsible, volunteers, and realize this is a type of job training for the 'real world' when you actually get paid to work - No excuse for you to NOT know what's going on at Fanime - no  more "I don't know" or "go ask that guy" responses -- You are representing the Fanime family, so show some good work ethics and do your best - and don't volunteer just to get a free badge or free hotel room!!

Dunno about the rest of the suggestions UminoJ made, but for this ^, yes like yes like forever yes. Is it so hard to go find me an answer? You working for Fanime (as staff or volunteer) sets you up for an onslaught of questions about con, 90% of which you won't know the answer to. But as part of the inner workings of Fanime...at least try to be mildly helpful. ><;

edit: not to say that there weren't totally spectacular, applause-worth staff members and volunteers. There were. Just saying there were quite a few that weren't.
As a volunteer, I think this isn't so much of the volunteer's problem, but more of the staff's because they never really tell us these kinds of things until it's too late :( I had to redirect a lot of people to a staffer because I honestly couldn't answer their question.They might assume that people would ask either a staffer or go to the info desk since there's a difference between the two (and staff sounds more official I guess xP).

This might take a bit of time, but maybe when people sign up to volunteer they can give us a booklet or something of common questions that people may ask (ex: what to do if I lost a badge -- I got this one asked a few times)? Volunteers don't get any training beforehand, so it would probably help at least a bit ;)

This is a small issue, but I don't know if it was addressed earlier: I was volunteering for registration lines and a LOT of people registering at-con couldn't seem to figure out the difference between the registration and the payment line. Maybe it could be a little clearer next year so that those waiting for their friends/family to finish don't accidentally wait inside the registration room (and annoy the staff inside)?

Also, in general, instead of mailing out badges, can we simply expand the number registration booths (which might require moving to another location) so that even if the line is long, it would move super fast? I was lucky and only waited 2 hours Friday afternoon for mine, but I know for others they weren't so lucky :\

On a positive note, Artist Alley and Dealers Hall was absolutely amazing! I think I circled it a few times each day because I couldn't pick what I wanted to buy (without blowing my budget)! xD And the Swap Meet and pocket schedules were totally awesome :D Love that Swap Meet was expanded to the Fairmont ^^

Where can we find the minor waiver form?

send an email to volunteers[at]fanime.com; they'll attach it if you ask them (that's what I did anyways ;) )

Unfortunately, I think I'm going to have to hold firm at $15 for the four volumes.  That's only because Bakuman wound up being a duplicate (always keep your manga list up to date, kids!) and thus is unread.  And I think $10 is a good price for three mint volumes of Zetsubou.  That doesn't mean this will hold true throughout the swap meet, though.
Alright, I'll take it for $15 then. Will you be at swap meet Friday? Maybe I can meet you before it starts ;)

13
hiyas I'm interested in the Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei vol. 1-3 and Bakuman vol.8. Would you be willing to go for $12-$13 total?

14
How much are you selling the blind box figures for? In particular I'm interested in the vocaloid SD ones.

So what you're saying that, instead of shikishi this year, I should bring fruit to pummel the guest relation staff with.  Gotcha  ;)
I would say "yes" but that means that they would be getting free food, so no. :)

Just bring the fruits that no one likes, like grapefruit. No one likes grapefruit.

Should bring durian along with that. I'm sure the venue will smell lovely afterwards ;)
