WOW! 2009 is over and it will take me a week to recover from all the fun! :P

Thank you to everyone for all your hard work, patients, understanding, support, and compliments. My staff and I appreciated it! I loved the pictures everyone drew and all the kind words they really helped get me through some tough moments and brightened my day.

So now is the time for feed back and to vote in the new poll. I look forward to EVERYONE's comments, suggestions, and eagerness to take 2010 over the top!

Love to ALL

Re: Fanime 2010 Cosplayer Gatherings & Events List *feedback for 09*
« Reply #9 on: June 03, 2009, 01:10:57 PM »

So... how was it this year?

Some, if not most, cospeeps may be aware that there were two certificates given out this year. A B&W certificate signed by me and a color certificate signed by Fanime 09 con chair & the live programming director. I would like to personally thank Tony and Jason for recognizing the organizers of gatherings/events for all the hard work they do. If you attended one of these gatherings as a cospeep you may be aware that there was a special reward from the con chair and live programing director that went along with a colored certificate of recognition. I had the privilege of presenting these certificates and all were well deserved.

Unfortunately, not all the B & W certificates of recognition were distributed because several organizers did NOT check in with the table. I must stress the importance of check in so that my staff can do their job and we/I are/am able to locate your gathering. If you would like your B & W certificate still please pm me with your 09 gathering and info on how I can get it to you.

As for my highlights running this new area:

THANK YOU for the use of your Megaphone. I still have it... ? PM me ^^)

Loved it when someone would look at one of the gathering info boards and get a puzzled look on their face. For three years now I have set up the info Manga style and every year it takes someone a while to figure it out. This year was no exception. My staff and I loved it when a small group were staring for a few minutes at the board and one person looked over and said, "I think your papers are out of order?" They were told that it was set up like a manga and the look of "OHHHH!" that came over the group put smiles on everyone's face. If that was you and your friends... thank you for making my staff smile ^^) It did get a bit crazy at times... especially Saturday but more on that later... and many of you stopping by to pick up the wordsearch, asking questions, signing or drawing cool pictures or just saying hi helped all of the gatherings/event staff feel appreciated. Many of us are cosplayers too and missed being out there participating at times.

Loved the table signage and I am putting it together into a 09 gatherings/events memory book that can be seen next year.

Loved the recognition given to the organizers by the other cospeeps for the hard work &/or for those few peeps that stepped up to save a gathering and took on the roll 24 hrs before con to keep it on the official list.

Loved seeing so many new and well done cosplays. I wish I could recognize everyone that I saw, but as a costumer some just got props from me on construction &/or ingenuity.

Loved all the hugs! Squidges are the best and sometimes it gives me the strength to keep going!

I am deeply appreciative and thankful to all those who listened to my staff and all the Fanime staff, especially when God's disciples showed up Saturday and everything shifted to a sharp left. The patients and understanding that everyone showed proves to me that the hearts of the attendees, cosplayers, and the rest are truly good. Thank you :)

Cons...

Lots to work on for this department with things to tweek, things to dump, and things to surprise all of you! ^^)

All in all I loved every crazy minute of it! I look forward to feedback and thank all of you for your attendance at the 65 gatherings and/or 16 cosplayer run events that were listed this year!

Gotta say that going to Gatherings is some of the most fun I have at Fanime.  Running a rather large Gathering (Naruto was 100+ cosplayers this year) really keeps me on my toes...but I love it.  Every year the thought runs thru my head, "Am I going to come back to Fanime next year?"  and I immediately answer myself with, "Heck yeah!  What would I do without my Naruto Cosplayers?"

B, I gotta say you rock.  This year I really felt like things went so much smoother and we had so much more support from the convention.  You did it and I can't thank you enough.  I framed my certificate and put it on the wall.   ;D

The "witnesses"...well I don't like them.  Nothing we can do but turn the other cheek and ignore them.  I wish the Bleach! Gathering great luck with them next year.  I'm excited to have Sunday for 2010!   :D

Long story short, I love Gatherings.  This year was like Gatherings to the extra degree and I had a total BLAST!  Thank you B and Staff, you guys are THE BEST!!!  I owe you guys a soda next year.   ;D

It was greatly organized and the boards around the area really helped when I forgot when a gathering was. I don't really have much to say other than it was done swimmingly awesome. Keep up the good work. :)

As for organizers not coming to the table, I suggest making that particular statement stand out more in the third post. Not to be a prude but a lot of people probably think your posts are tl;dr so they may just skim that part over even if it's in bold and underlined. The third post in particular has lots of things underlined and bolded so I think you should change it up so things stand up more. I would keep a consistent name for the organizer person instead of having "gathering organizer/thread overseer &/or cosplayer event organizer." Yeah, they may be different people for every single thing but underlining all that defeats the purpose of emphasizing that part when a good majority of the sentence is underlined.

I didn't realize there was a special format to the boards. It was pretty easy for me to look it over and find what I wanted. This year was the first time I had to go check one, so I thank you very much. (It was also my first time to a gathering.) It was very simple and easy to read. For me at least. I am definately planning on cosplaying next year.

I definitely think it is an improvement. There are a few font size and color changes I would do personally but it's just my humble opinion/suggestions.

For example, I would make:
Cosplayer Gatherings/Events Submission Guidelines:
bigger to stand out as a title. Yeah, it's bolded and underlined but it's the title. Titles should really, REALLY stand out.


Also, I would make the steps a bit bigger too so it stands out compared to the text in each section:
#1 Make sure your 1st post on your thread contains the following:
-snip-
#2 ONLY the organizer sends me a pm with the info. Posting in the thread only lists you as unofficial.
-snip-
#3 Each organizer MUST check in to the cosplayer gatherings table 10 minutes prior to their gathering/event. DO NOT send someone else to the table because you will be on my list not them. The table is located on the first floor of the convention center.


As for the lettered steps in step number 2, I would change it in a different color since it's a step within a step so it isn't confused with the three original, "important" steps. But I don't think it's necessary if you make the original steps (like in my second suggestion in this reply) bigger.

#2A In the SUBJECT line:
-snip-
#2B List your information in the pm in the following order:
-snip-
#2C After the gathering/event info list:

All the quotes have been edited to my suggestions and snipped so this post won't be long. =)

well if anyone i could personaly thank it have to be you B. (well your staff too =]) not only did the gatherings list help me bunches but i was able to make a complete and right on time schedule list.
my apreciation really goes out to you because i know like us cosplayers and event organizers like myself, you put alot of work into what you do for the staff and yourself to make sure us cosplayers are satisfied and happy. again your dedication to all the gatherings (Espicially to the Host Club) was mostly gratified and to be honsest we couldnt possibly have a better organizer than you to keep us on track with the whole con and against those wacky protesters , the certificates were really nice to have allong the rewards that came with were highly apreciated by most of gatherers. (i know i was completly happy)
its thanks to people like you B that you make us come back every year and continue to have the greatest expirence of all time.
you have my sincerest gratitude,
Ryu

LOL.  I know you guys can handle it.  Honestly the cosplayers were doing fine.  I think I was the only one getting frustrated by them...but I'll have a better megaphone next year so the noise won't be such an issue anymore.  If you need some Ninja backup or an extra megaphone, just let us know.    I'm usually at the Bleach! Gathering for pictures anyway. :)

I am working on alternative solutions to the problem and I will be in contact with both of you about something soon. I only ask that while planning your gatherings this year neither of you get set on a specific time just yet :P I will explain more later to both of you, but the current project I am working on needs to be concluded before I can run with it. (I know what a teaser I am *LOL) but it should be a whole lot of fun if I can pull it off (oh, and work for the department... but fun for all the attendees!) XD

Thanks to Brightheart I have a megaphone for next year :) SO with 3 megaphones things should prove to be more equal on our side *LOL :P
