This prevents people from acting unruly or "cutting" etc. Now, that person also takes up space in the elevator which, the main problem, is always crowded aduring peak times. So although it keeps down on unrulyness, now adds to the bigger problem of crowded elevators.

QuoteWhile I don't disagree with you, I see this causing more problems than it does help. With someone navigating traffic, people have to wait for the navigator to tell them where to go, then they navigator has to judge how many more people can fit, then release them in. By doing so, you're taking the time it would take to fill up an elevator and almost tripling it per elevator. Mmmm... think of it like a freeway. People are going to cut in, they're going to merge poorly, and everyone is just in a rush and cramming in causes slowing. But imagine if you had a police officer directing traffic to tell them how many at a time, when to merge, and who can go where. Although cleaner, it causes transport time to be extremely longer to do. Even WITH a person navigating traffic, what happens if someone is a jerk and doesn't want to listen or wait? And they just jump into the elevator and tell the staff member to shut the hell up. What is staff member going to do? He can't hold the elevator and force the person to leave so that ta rightful party member can get on. And if people see that, what is going to prevent them from just mimicing the guy and jump on the next elevator instead of waiting.Again, I don't disagree with you and stuff, but the idea works too much on the hope that everyone follows it accordingly, and the staff member is an expert at volume and filling elevators. If this was the case, he wouldn't be needed anyways. Elevators are a pain in the ass due to traffic flow, but really, there isn't anything you can do about it. You either wait and hope to get on, or take the stairs.
Quote from: Mango Bunny on March 26, 2011, 01:25:55 AMThe idea seems well-intentioned, but honestly, personally speaking, I would be much more frustrated if I was being policed into elevators. I'd rather throw myself in or take the stairs.Not to mention, we'd need two floors of this. I usually enter from the second floor, myself. So what? Now people would have to mosey down to the first floor, a floor that generally is not used by the congoers unless it's to get from point A to point B? So then there's the fact there's 4 elevators. We'd need multiple, coordinated people doing this, or one person not letting anyone get in open elevators, thus losing the empty elevators as they go back up. It gives me a headache just thinking about it.Then there's the fact that other people DO stay in the hotel. Not many, but there are some. I've seen them! They really do exist! So what about them? They have to listen to the elevator police from a con they are not involved with? That would leave a sour taste in my mouth.It sucks, but honestly, i haven't had any horrifying experiences save for getting out with all my luggage on Monday. I don't mind the party elevators, but then again, I rarely am rushing to get somewhere at Fanime.
