Quote from: epyonzer0 on May 28, 2012, 05:47:05 PMPros: This was my first time at Fanime and it was as orgasmically awesome as I expected it to be.Cons:-The pocket schedule was great, but I think either it or the big book that comes in the bag needs to a little more explicitly state when and where the dance(s), MusicFest, the Masquerade, and things of that nature will happen. -The consolidated listing of cosplay gatherings was a great help as well, but I wish it had included a legend for all of the location acronyms for first-time Fanime visitors (such as myself). Also on this note, the one time I asked the cosplay info desk for said legend that it was supposed to have, no one knew what it was. Admittedly this was probably because everyone who knew was dealing with the protestors and other things.This is all I can think of for now.
Quote from: hazelasher on May 29, 2012, 04:47:22 PMI have been going to Fanime since 2001 and the only negative thing I have to say is the registration lines are simply outdated. My boyfriend and I could only attend for one day, so we arrived at 9:00 AM on Saturday and waited for four hours. There is *NO* reason why you shouldn't be allowed to pre-reg for a one-day only pass and have it mailed out. Or at least have some type of barcode to be scanned at the con for pick-up. The process for registration at the con is so archaic, it's nuts! Here, stand in line for hours, enter your name and number into a computer, print out the info and have your badge picked up. So much time could be saved with a simple letter in the mail! Fanime will only grow in 2013, it's time to implement one-day ticket sales and allow them to be mailed out in advance.I hope to see this improve in the future. Otherwise, we had a pretty positive experience! I don't know if I'll attend next year if a similar set-up occurs.
Quote from: SweetNiar on May 29, 2012, 05:51:01 PMI dont know about sending badges out in the mail....it would either get lost in the mail, people would loose them or forget to bring them.
Quote3) People blocking hallways and aisles and stairs to take pictures. More off limit photography areas would be nice so that we can actually move around. I'm about ready to give up and photobomb everything by cutting through.
Quote from: ApacheChief on May 29, 2012, 05:51:59 PMCons- Felt like there was not enough pre-reg/reg workers to keep the line flowing faster.- Massive long waits for the con-goers. (cousin had to wait 3+ hours to get his pre-reg on day 1)
Quote from: arcadiapandora on May 29, 2012, 04:17:26 PM- Dealer's hall exit and entrance - only one way while Artist Alley - just 10 feet away - had both open. Also, the Rover who was guarding the exit on Monday was rude. If you have something be an exit, exceptions should not be made - for staff, or anyone. I saw 6-7 people walk through while this Rover was busy texting on her phone, and when I tried to walk through and pointed out the huge group that went in before me when stopped, her answer was "they were staff". Yea, bet you could tell that while staring at your phone, couldn't you. Be fair, Fanime. It's conflicting to people when you let some people go through and not others.
Quote from: White Rose Assassin on May 28, 2012, 09:59:51 PM+ More of a suggestion - for panel check in, can we phone or text check in? We were trying to get out of the hotel on Monday for checkout so we can make the 10AM panel.
Quote from: Kyokun on May 29, 2012, 05:59:54 PM4) For the attendees: Pushing all the hotel elevator buttons is fucking infantile so knock it off. Also, stop leaving bottles of pee everywhere. At the Fairmont, we kept seeing bottles of pee in the elevator, under tables, in corners. If you guys keep this crap up, the hotels will stop working with Fanime.
Quote from: Gunbuster on May 29, 2012, 05:41:52 AMWhile it's true that there are other panels not directly related to anime, most at least relate to Japan (Japanese video games for example) or convention culture (the dating panels tend to be specifically for fans). I'd just like that they all tend to tie in to the theme (though I'm sure there are those that don't, it's not like I can make all of them nor do I have a schedule). Sorry if I singled yours out as an example.
Quote from: Junon on May 29, 2012, 03:03:18 PMPositives- Panels. Many more of them were right up there with my personal interests, so I spent a great deal of time hunting them down and attending. I hope there are more next year.
Quote from: Bushido on May 29, 2012, 11:52:18 AMMy main complaint is towards Head Rover Terrance. He wears glasses and has a buzz cut. This man should not be working again as head rover next year. He right off the bat very rude, smug and arrogant. I understand that staff says that he's military but I couldn't care less if he was. It gives no excuse for him to treat me the way he did. Basically this man ruined all of Friday for me as he outright denied my Stormtrooper blaster prop, which was made out of hyperfirm rubber with no working components and is a big piece of rubber, without giving me a chance to explain and prove that it's clearly a fake and ignoring other weapons that looked more real than mine. I also must point out that his examples as to trying to prove his point like when these snipers on the roof tops protecting Obama when he was in San Jose a couple of days ago wouldn't like my blaster, well what kind of idiot would even bring a fake gun or even a cheap $1 squirt gun when the President is around? And no sorry but I also have to call bullshit on police frisking Stormtroopers just because of our blasters. Even as going as far as going on the radio and essentially labeling me a criminal. What's funny is he claims to be a fan of the 501st Legion, an organization I'm apart of, while at the same time as I said treated me like a criminal which not only did he disrespected me but spat all over the good name of the 501st Legion as a whole. I am not the only person who this man had gave crap to. There are plenty of others who understand where I'm getting at. I spent most of my Friday trying to get this mess of a situation resolved so that my fellow garrison members wouldn't have to go through what I had to go through. Also I think the staff can do a better job not procrastinating. Having per-registration, hotel registration, guest announcements come extremely late is not the way staff should run a con. I understand that there was a staff change but that's not enough to excuse such a poor job. All things concerned the only major complaint is Terrance. He is the number one example of who not to hire back.
