So from what I gathered from this thread, all heterosexual, male spots were filled on May 1st? Because I didn't get my confirmation, and I signed up late-ish that day (since you said signing up on 5/1 didn't guarantee a spot, I'm assuming this was the case.)

We are just stating that if you signed up on 5/1/12 it may or may not have placed you in a time slot. The initial acknowledgment email that you registered should have been automatic.

Perhaps people clear their Spam folders and it got Trashed? We cannot account for your email actions.

If you signed up later that day, you may or may not have gotten a spot also depending on what time/dates you wanted. We have no guarantees for anyone regardless of their gender or sexual preferences.

Please check your spam and email by tomorrow morning to see if you received a confirmation email. For registration, we take a first-come, first-served basis for requests based on your preferences. We, the Staff, strive diligently to make the process as fair as possible and enjoyable for all. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Best of luck!

Quick question. During these 5 minute rounds are we sitting? I'm debating whether or not if I want to arrive in costume and my armor does not leave room to sit normally.

as far as my past experience is concerned, you will be sitting
and then either the females will stay seated and the males move, or vica versa

Yes you are sitting and for the non-LBGT, gentlemen are going to rotate around. For LBGT, we are going to just pick a side to rotate.

Anyone may wear their cosplay, but forewarn to be cautious about space! You may take parts of your costume off while speed dating. It is entirely up to you and your comfortableness.

So I got my confirmation e-mail for Friday, but I'm still waiting on a friend of mine to get his before I start planning my weekend out. On the off chance that he get his confirmation e-mail for Sunday instead, would trading spots with someone for that day be okay? If not, I would understand but I had to ask.

I haven't gotten mine either. Ah well. I guess I'll check again tomorrow, and if not, oh well. Next year.

I dont think im getting one either because I signed up 5/1 sometime in the evening. Unless it was in my spam folder but I doubt it. Who was the name of the sender?

Hey your Highness (princesskitty), is the B&W ball more fun than the speed dating event?

Hey your Highness (princesskitty), is the B&W ball more fun than the speed dating event?
hahaha cute :D i like bein called highness haha
both events are fun but i have a personal preference for the ball just because i like dancing and ive gone to the ball every year that ive gone to fanime
if you're listed for sunday, you can definitely go to speed dating and then the ball afterward. i just need to be there early to help set up cuz im staff
the actual ball itself starts at 6 so u can go to it :)
do both! they're both really fun :D

Hello ohaves,

Unfortunately after we place you in a time slot and email confirmations, we cannot switch time slots around for anyone. This is to ensure the fairness for everyone who has registered and honor their requests. If registered people happen to be late or no-shows for any day, their spot goes to at-con attendees who waited in line. Best of luck and hope that everything works out for you!

Please direct all inquiries about other events in their appropriate thread forums. This thread forum is specifically for Speed Dating, and we do not compare events based on "fun-ness." All FanimeCon Staff have worked hard to prepare their events and all events are fun regardless. Apologies to those who were not placed in a time slot and we understand your concerns in terms of participation, but if you're really curious and enthusiastic about Speed Dating still, we recommend you wait at-con! We hope to expand Speed Dating next year as well to accommodate the high volume of requests for our event. Please keep supporting us and giving us your feedback! We appreciate it :)

Thank you and I understand completely. I figured switching was a long shot, haha. Also, based on previous speed dating events, what would be the best time to line up at the con to hopefully score a spot in the event? My friend is still interested in coming on Friday, so he would like to try his chances at the lines.

Based on previous Speed Dating events (not an official recommendation from Speed Dating staff), attendees lined up as early as 1 hour before the event and some have gotten in. However, Friday does seem to be our most popular event thus far. There is big anticipation for our first Speed Dating event!

Ah, okay then. We were planning on an hour or so early, so that works out. Thanks so much for your help!
