It shouldn't really matter. Your badge doesn't say what age you are, and the only reason why Fanime asks is usually for legal liability with minors. But general rule is if you're turning 22, say you're 22 on your information 'cause that's what you'll be when you get there.

Being +/- 1 on age is okay. We generally use your other information for identity confirmation and as long as the age is approximately true, it's fine.

Early (during con) Pre-registration
« Reply #3 on: February 18, 2013, 05:19:54 PM »

big big question, has anyone recieved any notifications and emails from those who pre-registered during the 2012 fanime convention?

I pre-registered for $40 but i still did not receive any email from registration as of yet!
I really would like to obtain the pre-registration on site, becuase i know by the end of this month (certain announcement such as swap meet / artist alley / masquerade) will be made and I know they will ask for a badge information!

You will receive an e-mail once this is done. If it isn't done before any of the other event registrations you have mentioned are opened, there will be work-around in place.

work-around - the staff will waive/bypass that particular requirement if there are other ways to prove that requirement.

ewu went into what the current plan is (because I couldn't confirm it). I'm not sure if you were being serious about not knowing what the term "work around" is. If you weren't, then ignore the rest of my post. If not, here is the meaning of it...

A work around is a (in most cases, temporary) solution that is put in place to get around something to get the task accomplished.

We generally don't like using work arounds as it means that we had to deviate from the original plan, but if we need to in order to get something done (and having the pros outweigh the cons) we will.

okay so... is this going to be a problem for artist alley / swap meet (which is comming up very soon on announcements) sign ups?

-ps: thanks for defining the work around term, because i really never heard of that term before in my life (really serious here)

As mentioned before, this won't be an issue as we will have something in place for those that pre-registered at the end of last year.

Do people who pre-register get the fanime schedule ahead of time?  This is my first time pre-registering, but I've attended and registered at con the past few years and always have disliked not seeing the programming schedule until I arrive.

We try to get the schedule posted as soon as possible, but most of the video programming schedule (and some others) aren't available until the week before FanimeCon. Keep an eye out on our website.
