Quote from: SOawesomeness on May 28, 2013, 04:07:25 PMJust something I thought really funny. I was wearing a strapless dress that was almost too short for your dress code (but I'm pretty short and I passed the bend test) but before I did the test, the staffer asked me "Is there any way to pull down your dress to make it longer?".__________. I mean, I could have, but you'd be seeing a lot more top than bottom at that point and that'd probably be the least of your concerns then...

I personally know that many registration staff did not sleep Thursday-Friday night because we had closed at 4am (after the line died down and we were cleaning) to setting up opening at 7am. Many of our staff on Friday were running on less than 3 hours of sleep. I personally could not walk on Friday because I had been standing all day on Thursday. Most Registration volunteers/staff work are incredibly dedicated and loyal. No matter what, they will work as hard as they can until the last person walks through those final doors and is registered.I personally read all feedback concerning Registration and at this moment, I am planning some proposals for next year. If you have any ideas that are new, constructive, and unique, I'd love to hear it. Please e-mail me at registration AT fanime DOT com or leave feedback on this forum (as it will be read).

Quote from: spycker on May 28, 2013, 07:50:46 PMWell, I just think the registration should be setup like very early in the morning
Quote from: spycker on May 28, 2013, 07:50:46 PMI think the pre registration people should get their own section of a room to pick up their badges.
Quote from: amre1204 on May 28, 2013, 08:07:23 PMLater that evening, I dressed up a bit more with one of my friends and ventured over to Black and White Ball. It was my friend's first Fanime, and she was looking forward to the Ball. Supposedly, new rules were added to the rules already established, and we were not notified until we were AT THE DOOR. We get to the door, and they stop my friend, claiming her heels were too short. As she explained to the rover that she had been wearing these shoes for moths and that these were her only pair, the Rover just gives her attitude and claims that heels like hers "have been driven through people's legs before in years past". Excuse me? Were people DRUNK in previous years? Who STABS heels through legs? What kind of dancing is that?I managed to get past the first checkpoint but at the second, I was given both attitude, disrespect, and rude comments. First, the guy was giving me flack about my shoes. I was wearing a pair of Mary Jane shoes with no heel and calmly explained to the guy I cannot wear heels due to problems with my feet. I was given more attitude and flack about shoes then moved to the girl rover who preceded to tell me my dress was too short. My dress was directly at my knee, no higher than that, and I was wearing a petticoat beneath it. I pulled my dress down and showed that it was longer than it seemed, but the petticoat was giving it a more rounded shape. I was given attitude and flack once more. That's when I decided that it wasn't even WORTH the effort to attempt to enjoy the ball, let alone go.Found out later that night, shoes skinnier and taller than my friend's heels and dresses that were shorter than mine were allowed into the ball. Also, the demos were given by people in short shorts and stiletto like heels. So demos are allowed to not follow dress code? Who let the shorter ones in? Seriously?Also found out later that the leg stabbing thing was a lie - they were concerned about the floors getting scraped. Why not tell us this in the first place, instead of lying straight to our faces??If this is supposed to be a con "by fans, for fans" I don't think the attitudes, lies, and overall disorganized scramble is necessary. And that is my two cents.
Quote from: Okach on May 28, 2013, 09:26:16 AMOur contract with the floor vendor stipulates that any damage over and above normal wear and tear is FanimeCon's responsibility. This translates to "FanimeCon pays for it." The floor vendor commented to us that the conventions that he has the most issues of additional damage with are salsa conventions, mainly due to the use of long, thin heels on a lot of people dancing for many hours. After much discussion over the years (and much hair pulling) the four inch heel/diameter of a nickel was decided upon as a compromise between fashion and potential cost (injury/floor).
Quote from: tazo on May 27, 2013, 10:25:09 PMYeah the Clockwork Alchemy badge pickup wasn't even relayed to us until we were about 3 hours into the line. It was right under our hotel too. I'm more than a little furious we didnt hear about that sooner. :T

Quote from: spycker on May 28, 2013, 10:21:06 PMI mean like in different rooms hehe, like ballroom for " at con " and imperial room for " pre-reg " people.. :D
Quote from: Zabi on May 27, 2013, 05:48:17 PM In order to go faster, you need more booths for pre-reg and reg.
Quote from: Zabi on May 27, 2013, 05:48:17 PM for at-con reg they should hand out the reg papers while in line so they only have to hand it once up there.

One idea brought up at the Closing Ceremony(which attendees were encouraged to go to), was to have the location of this year's AA- as next year's registration since it was so spacious and long...

Yeah, the long wait is horrendous- but considering the unique circumstances like having relocate where badge pickup was going to be as well as other factors- this wasn't as bad as it could have been.
