Well the Fountain is Officially gone.

How are all them Weaboos supposed to break their legs now?

The Marriott hotel finished construction shortly after the 2002 WorldCon in San Jose...

Sorry to see the fountains go, I always thought they were a waste of space, never worked right and tended to spray on people when the wind was blowing...

Just my opinion...

All cosplayers must cherish our picks in front of the fountains :D  Fanime '12 is a challenge for us cosplayers organizing gatherings.

The fountains have been replaced by ugly green plants....  The giant globe things are still there though... Doesn't work at all in my opinion! I want the fountains back... :(

This looks like my harvest moon plot. When my crops are first sprouting. I don't like it,  the water was pretty and made for good pictures.

Harvest moon is a game, a very good game. farmville is knock off of this. But yeah... so why did they change the fountain to this?

@Dany

I agree with you! Ni...

All I can hope is that in a few years when they grow it'll look less like a farm and more like, well, decorative plants.

I took that picture and my reaction was like: WHY U DO THIS? But yeah, a lot of people agree, that that place will get trampled, destroyed, and filled with litter on the first day of the con. Personally, I loved the fountains cause they were an awesome backdrop for photos. Now they are no more -_-;;

Oh noes! No more fountains?? The green looks so..... unnatural... It doesn't blend in at all. A very big dislike!

I'm hearing that a lot of people are willing to take on the risk of getting caught and fined (and maybe even arrested?) to do a photo shoot in the construction site itself
There are a lot of "urban" anime where a construction site would be a prime spot for a shoot

As much as I like a good cosplay photo, this is why we can't have nice things. :(

That was my first thought, actually!


It's really ugly and looks totally out of place. :< Would be great if I were doing a Harvest Moon cosplay, though...?

The one benefit I see is at least we will have more standing room in the front, presuming it is okay to stand in them.
