Hello Hanimani,

We recommend coming at least 10 minutes earlier to be eligible. However we do have fans coming 1/2hr-1hr+ prior to the event. It really depends on the time and day. By any chance, are you associated staff with Speed Dating NYC?

My plan is to hit the one on Saturday, probably line up 15 min before... or at least that's the plan :)
I like programming and making stuff.

Just Terry looking for his Blue Marry, Kenshin looking for his Kaoru, Otonashi looking for a Kanade.
Also looking for rivals to give me a great fight in the virtual arena and the RL Wrestling ring! Panther mask is here!! haha

udonoodle

I want to do this, too bad there is probably going to be waaaayyy too many people XD
How early do you think you'd have to show up to get a spot?

Did everyone have a good time last year? I'm curious!

recrimage

hello, I was hoping to help out with the speed dating event as well, but I didn't find any contact info, e-mail, etc..
Who should I talk to about helping for this event?

Hello Recrimage, thank you for your interest. We have an official section on the FanimeCon website http://www.fanime.com/events-and-exhibits/events/#speed-dating as well as this official forum thread. In addition, we were previously recruiting for Staff on the forums and website but are no longer doing so. We also have an official email as well speeddating@fanime.com or you can simply personal message me or yaki-ika. You can contact us in various ways whichever for your convenience.

However as mentioned, we are not recruiting for Staff. We need Volunteers for the event but you would have to sign up to be a volunteer for FanimeCon in general and see if they have spots available to help with Speed Dating. Their email should be volunteers@fanime.com.

Ratio of the lines are unpredictable as we cannot predict the future...however inside the event, it is 1:1 per person ratio for m/f and LGBT days.

I'm going to try to be there on Friday, if I can't get in I might come to one of the later slots.
I'm not actually crazy, but I'm not conventionally sane.

Hello again, I tried e-mailing both the speeddating@fanime.com as well as the volunteers@fanime.com but neither have yet to respond to me. Since it is now so close to the event, I imagine it would just be best if I approached one of the speed dating staff upon my arrival and asked then?

Hopefully I can get a hold of someone before it is too late.

Cosplays are only a problem if they interfere with your ability to move or obstruct your ability to communicate

Are there any rules that forbids someone from participating the event multiple times?
