However, there are cons out there, especially ones in the Midwest and East Coast, that actually do allow airsoft weapons on the con floor. I've seen a ton of cosplays from like ACEN that have airosft weapons, the same weapons that would be banned from the likes of Fanime and Anime Expo. I did touch briefly on this before the con, and I would like to again.

Acen also banned anything having to do with 4chan/anonymous. They also banned ALL SIGNS unless they had to do with a costume.

Otakon banned guns unless it's obviously a prop with no moving parts. This includes water guns.

If an airsoft gun is fired at the con, be fairly certain that they'll be banned.

Not just Jun. There were a group of girls in the Thursday prereg badge pickup line that absolutely wouldn't stop groping each other.

Every time I think I may start to have an inkling of an idea of what goes on in a girl's mind, I lose that grip. Then I remember that I'm in the same boat with most girls on that issue, and I stop trying to figure ye girls out.

And yo, doesn't work with all girls. If they ain't comfortable wit it, it ain't coo. Like Mikey. He grabs dude's balls, but if they ain't coo wit it... well, it becomes kind of hilarious, but for the most part NOT COO. And uh... yo, if you think about it, it's like an intimate greeting, amirite. Like sayin', "Yo. I's so coo wit chu, I can do dis an' we be coo 'bout it, a'ight." so it's all coo.

A "glomp me" sign is sollicitation.
They have always been banned by state law, not by FanimeCon.  Basically, the convention rules themselves haven't changed to be more strict in the last year or anything.  They've always been like this.  (I'd know since I dug up all the previous years' policies in order to write this year's.)

But it wasn't enforced until now. That's the major difference.

I wasn't out on the floor much.  Were they actually more enforced this year than previous years?  (I'd like to think my signs made a difference.)  ^_^;

speaking of which.

I STILL got glomped 3 times as Hard Gay without permission.
I verbally voiced my unhappiness and they apologized and ran away...

at least there was no 200 pd fat guy picking me up in the air for 30 seconds this year.

It wasn't as bad for me this year, I just got a tap on the shoulder they held out their arms and I gave them like a quick 3 second hug.

I had people glomp me, scream in my ear, and bruise me with Pok'eballs because they thought I was cosplaying as Rei Ayanami while I was cosplaying as Cirno. :|

I like to work hard AND play hard. =P
