FanimeCon 2012 Speeddating: Official Thread!
« on: February 21, 2012, 10:00:25 PM »

Hi everyone,

As some may know, Speeddating has been a very successful event at FanimeCon, and we wish to continue the event at FanimeCon 2012!!

Here is what is posted on the website and is up to date:

-----------------

SIGNUPS ARE NOW CLOSED. You will receive a confirmation email if you were submitted. If you don’t receive a confirmation email with your date and time slot, you were not submitted into FanimeCon Speed Dating this year. Please try and line up at the doors!

The FanimeCon Speed Dating event is for 18+ SINGLES ONLY who are interested in meeting new people and potentially finding love! This speed dating event will be for boys meeting girls and vice versa. Anyone who is above the age of 18 is eligible. IDs WILL BE CHECKED AT THE DOOR TO VERIFY AGE. PLEASE BRING AN ID THAT INDICATES YOUR BIRTHDAY (passport, drivers license, state id, etc.). THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.

Event Places and Times:
All events will be held in the San Carlos Room (Hilton Side, NOT the Marriott side!!).
Friday (5/25): 8PM to 10PM
Saturday (5/26): 2PM to 4PM and 4PM to 6PM
Sunday (5/27): 2PM to 4PM and 4PM to 6PM

HOW THE EVENT WILL WORK:
Upon successful registration, a confirmation email will be sent. Please follow the instructions on the email. And wait for another email from Speed Dating letting you know whether or not you got into the event.
Come to the event with your ID. A piece of paper to take notes on, a pencil, and a checklist with numbers on it will be provided. Each participant will have an identification number.
You will have five minutes to talk to each person. If you feel like you connected with that person, place a check mark next to their number on the checklist. You may check up to three people. If you check more than three, I will not process your sheet and you will get no matches.
YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO GIVE OUT ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION, INCLUDING NAME AND AGE.
At the end of the event, you will have a few minutes to finalize your ideas and checkpoints. Please RANK THE PEOPLE YOU’RE INTERESTED IN (with 1 being your top preference). Make sure to turn in the checkpoint/ranking paper in. We will then match all compatible couples accordingly.
NOTE: We will ONLY match people with a mutual interest. Please note that a match is not guaranteed. Once the event is over, we will send your matches to you ASAP VIA EMAIL. If you wish to be notified of possible matches via modality other than email, or NEED to attend on a certain day (because you won’t be at the convention on one of the days), please note it in the ADDITIONAL NOTES in your application. We will notify everyone about their potential matches during the convention so you can spend time with your potential partner, if a match is made.
IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS/COMMENTS/SUGGESTIONS, PLEASE POST THEM ON THE FORUMS. DO NOT EMAIL THE ADDRESS GIVEN ABOVE. This is to minimize repeat questions. We will check the forums daily, so expect an answer within 24 hours. You may also post suggestions that we may take into account for following years to come to ensure a fun and safe event that everyone can enjoy.

-------------------------------

Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you there!

Jade

Hi Princesskitty18,

All good questions, and thanks for asking them!

- I am currently planning on hosting the event on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Specific times will be posted later (but before sign-ups on May 1st).
- Yes, I am planning on including the LGBT community this year. I'm really excited for this, and I'm glad that I get to make it happen :)
- Plans are still tentative about what nights will be for who, but my staff and I have a pretty good idea. I will let you know as soon as its set in stone.
- As far as the 3min vs 5min thing is concerned, I will be talking with my staff about what they think is the best way to approach this dilemma. I will update you and everyone else as soon as its been decided.

Thanks,

Jade

--Modified 5/21/2012--

FanimeCon Speed Dating Confirmation for Specific Times/Dates have been EMAILED OUT!

If you do not receive an email by TOMORROW MORNING, 5/22/12, then you did not receive a spot in the event due to the high volume of registration requests! Please come to our event and wait at-con, first-come first-served in line. We can't wait to MEET YOU!

Brief FAQ for all you eager fans!

  • When will I receive my confirmation email about my specific date/times?: We will absolutely email you before FanimeCon starts. We have been working diligently to process everyone's registration and filling up spaces on a rolling basis. We appreciate your understanding and patience, so please be on a look out and check your email!
------------------
  • It's FanimeCon Day already, and I did not receive a confirmation email...Why?: Due to the popularity of our event, our online registration sign-ups are first-come, first-served basis since May 1st. Chances are that we were unable to place you in one of our Speed Dating events due to the volume of registration requests.
------------------
  • What can I do if I do not receive a confirmation email with a specific time/date? Can I email you and ask for one?: No please do not email or post on the forums requesting a date/time because all the spots HAVE BEEN FILLED! We cannot do anything at that point regardless. What you can do is...(1) Choose which date and time you want to attend, (2) Show up earlier than 2PM or 4PM (start times) to get in line and wait at-con for a possible spot, and (3) You are able to participate if someone who previously registered FAILS to show up to the event. WE ARE AT THE SAN CARLOS ROOM, HILTON SIDE
------------------
  • So if I wait like 5 hours in line before the Speed Dating event, I'll get a spot right?: No, please refer to my last answer! We only have so many spots during the Speed Dating event to accommodate the number of people. So please plan accordingly if you want to wait at-con.
------------------
  • Is there a waitlist so I can avoid waiting at-con?: No, this year we decided to not do waitlist emails and just make it simple- first-come, first-served at-con wait line!
------------------
  • Okay, yeah I received a confirmation email! What should I do next?: Congrats! Please remember to come earlier than 2PM or 4PM for us to confirm your identity and mark you down for the event.
------------------
  • How can I prepare for Speed Dating exactly?: You can't really! AND that's the fun of it! Just be yourself and know that this is meant to be an enjoyable experience for everyone. You are NOT obligated in any way to reveal your personal information.
------------------
  • Are there other rules I have to abide by?: Yes, as a FanimeCon attendee, you must abide by the con and convention rules. We will explain Speed Dating in more details during the event. So don't worry!
------------------
  • I am so excited to meet my soulmate and get many matches!: Whoa STOP! We, the Speed Dating Staff, do NOT guarantee you may get any matches or that you'll meet your soulmate... We will match you based on your three top choices and if the other party matches you as well, then we will provide the appropriate contact information to respective parties. Be forewarned, you may not get ANY matches. So may the odds be ever in your favor!
------------------
  • I honestly read through this whole thing and you still didn't answer my question: Then please post on the forums and we will answer you asap. If you are asking a question that is already in this FAQ...  :-\

Lastly, we apologize if some of the information may be confusing. Please do not worry about the numbers or logistics of the actual event itself. We, the staff, are honored to do the logistical work for you. All you have to do is cross your fingers, check your email, and enjoy Speed Dating!

I am going to be there, though I don't know what day I will be able to check out the speed-dating as I am sure there will be a lot of other things going on during the con.

I wish the best for everyone who goes though and that everyone walk away from it with some new friends and new memories.

Yaki-ika,
I have signed up for the speed dating event by sending an e-mail to speeddating@fanime.com. However, I never received a confirmation e-mail in return. Is there a way this problem can be corrected?

I chuckled.

We switched to forms this year so that it can automatically send out confirmations (at least i think so? I'll need to double check), and so we can easily control when they start coming in.

I missed it last year because I didn't register in time. Were people there in cosplay last time? I personally wouldn't go in cosplay so I'll change to my regular clothes before I go.
