Wait, does that mean that people who get their panels approved after April 1st, will NOT get their panel descriptions in the program guide, and only have the name of their panel on the schedule?

So if you're not in this list: Please check your e-mail! There are a few time slots still open on the schedule, and the first to reply claiming them will get them.

Here's the current list of newly approved panels (pro-tip: use ctrl+f to search):

The schedule will be full before the list of panels is sent to the program guide. Any panels approved after that, due to cancelations, will not appear in the program guide.

The current approval round is considered the round for the April 1st deadline. We simply can't send out word of everything ON the 1st, because it takes times to sort through the submissions and try to fit them into the schedule.

I hope that makes sense.

For now, the following have been added:

Character Makeup

Con Survival - Cosplayer Style
Henshin! TokuSentai

When will the official panel schedule be released? Or at least when will the panel leaders know how many hours are being allotted to them and when?

I just sent out the schedule a few minutes ago. :)

Judging from the panel email, I feel pretty good about this year.
Question though: When can we start advertising the times of our panels?

I can only go as fast as people get back to me to confirm their times. In an effort to speed this up, I just spent most of the last 3 hours on the phone calling people - but there are still a few people I was not able to get hold of. Hoping to get out the finalized schedule by Monday, but it depends on people getting back to me and me having time to get it out. :)

See above response to the other question. *chuckles* I think most things are locked down now. Just waiting on a few more confirmations.

@Kava - So in your conformation e-mail, I know you said not to mention anything about discounts and that the information would be forthcoming in another email. I've registered, but haven't paid my registration fee. Who do I need to contact about that so I can get my registrations squared away. It's almost the 30 day mark, and I'm just afraid that I won't be able to pay the pre-registration rate if it doesn't get taken care of soon.

Thanks for all your hard work with the new system and dealing with all us nervous nerds. ^^

Question about the Hetalia Q & A panel that was supposed to be on Monday. Our original time was supposed to be a two hour panel from 12pm - 2pm, but our time slot got pushed to a one hour panel from 2pm -3pm. Is there any way we can get our 2 hour slot back?

Hello!

I obviously need to re-write what's on the website, because a lot of people ask me questions like this.

Discounts for panelists are only offered on full-priced badges purchased AT the convention center. I cannot give discounts on pre-reg or even early-registration badges. I cannot give refunds on badges that have already been purchased.

We haven't yet worked out a way for panelists to be able to get their badges squared away pre-convention. It's something that comes up a lot, but we haven't figured out a way to make it work yet. Sorry for any confusion!

I have communicated with the individual in charge of this panel separately via e-mail.
