QuoteThe schedules were much harder to read this year. It was just too small and there wasn't enough contrast with the shaded boxes and black text.
Quote from: "Karisma Black"I didn't like the artist room. I seriously liked it much better when they were just on the second floor of the convention center. It allowed people just wandering to see the art and buy stuff as opposed to having to specifically go into a room to find it. I'm sure the artists got better sales last year, too.
Quote from: "Sunara Ishi"It really did hurt there sales. I heard that one of the artists only made %10 in one day when they made over $70 last year...
Quote from: "YoureMyHiro"A great con but it all seemed to go so fast, my thoughts:2. Masquerade, now before I give my two cents, I applaud all those who put in the immense effort to create their costumes. I'm sure it took many man hours and quite a bit of financial investment, kudos to you. However, I felt the Masquerade was drawn out with "filler" by the many walk-ons and lack of skits.
Quote from: "YoureMyHiro"5. Organization, I was able to find everything I was looking for due to the lovely signs and READY MADE schedule made available at registration.

However, I felt the Masquerade was drawn out with "filler" by the many walk-ons and lack of skits.I'm still baffled by this one (read up higher in this thread). There were only 11 walk-ons and 41 skits plus 2 special performances. Did you not stay for the second part either? Also, it's absolutely impossible to control who does how many skits or anything. It's a free show put on by people making up their own stuff- and therefore the content can't be screened and changes every year depending on who participates. If we require skits and only skits -- you are probably going to get about 20 groups. The way this works is that a FEW groups (usually the ones who win) plan out skits a long time in advance, but a lot of people just make up their skits on the fly -- even when they signed up originally as "walk-ons" we talk them into doing skits.The best I can do is to make the walk-ons a little more spread-out this year. Sadly, I did not realize until I read the comments here that almost all the walk-ons ended up in the first half. I think if we had mixed it up a bit more, 5 skits for every 1 walk on which was the true ratio, you would not have noticed them so much. That's my fault because of the way we checked in people for our ease (by giving them a number as they cheked in) of keeping track of things. You guys missed some great skits in the second half, which was almost completely skits.
QuoteFor those who have commented on the emcee, that was Brian aka Dieter, who has hosted just about every single Masquerade for the past 10 years or so at Fanime... it wasn't a new guy... we just took over the organization of the background stuff and Brian returned to emcee. Brian just wanted to retire his "Dieter" persona for a while.
