Well, there were some last minute gatherings that weren't updated onto the list when you had left, so a lot of people missed a few gatherings, so I suppose that was a problem.

The CLAMP one was 12 Noon but people forgot it was at Noon and NOT at 1 PM, so the group came out very very small ;__;

I only had a few gathering that interested me, so I was able to find and make it to them. I'm not sure if there was a list of all the gatherings on Fanime.com Cosplay forums, but I think there should be one because it's easier for everyone.

Like someone like BSapphire should be in charge of looking in every 2007 Gathering thread and then compose of a full list. Then that list will be put up onto a sticky. I found a list like that on BSapphire's website, but I don't think there was one on here. It was very convenient for me. :D

I'm sorry to hear that the gathering was small. I checked on that and this is what I found.... I had marked it in blue which ment that someone on cosplay.com posted me about the gathering. I went there and this is what I found from LadyAxum on the 15th of May...
"The CLAMP Gathering Shall be on Sunday at 12 by the fountains in front of the convention center"

That is post #63 here http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=76518&page=5

Again, I am sorry that it was very small. My hopes were to get a few people to attend the gatherings that didn't know about them. I will see if there is anything different I can do to make this better for next year.
Thank you for posting. I appreciate it ^^).

SakuraNeko, I agree. I started posting deadlines in early May in hopes of getting as much accurate information as possible. I posted in my threads (the gathering threads/sticky on both forums) that I had done all I could do for updates and I had sent it off along with lots of other info to get done for con. At that point I could not change the info on the List that I was going to have around con.

I should let all the cospeeps know that I did not constantly research the different gathering threads like last year. Youko helped me last year to do that. She and I were swamped with costuming & consignments among work and many other things. I did try to get on and look through a few. I managed to reach some of the gatherings that had incomplete info and finalize their information on the list.

Do you have any suggestions? I know that I am pushing to get the list in with the programs so that I know each person has their own copy. I don't care if it is a pocket guide placed in the bag along with the program that you get at registration (AND I WOULD MUCH PREFER THIS) but something would be better than nothing. In order for this to happen the deadlines must be met. It takes many people to get a program like Fanime's done, and that is not even including the printers ^^). I would not want Our Gatherings List to delay that process in any way.

I hope you had fun at Fanime and thank you for posting.^^)  

Appologies to you also, 100% BEEF, I didn't want anyone to miss their gathering. In reverse I know how that feels.

I was not able to shoot all the gatherings because there isn't enough of me to go around. I only hope that at least one professional photog was able to make all the gatherings I was not able to.
(Sorry Trigun ^^) I heard that EBK made it and then I heard he didn't. I only cosplayed on Sunday and it took forever to get into costume. I was pretty sure that at least one of the photogs I know would have been there with all those smexy Vashes & Wolfwoods running around *giggle... where is Merle? Glad I got those shots on Friday though ^^)

Thanks scyper15 for the vote of confidence. If you found it on my website *Yeah!!! then you got that information because of the threads on the forums. I posted the list in my Fanime section and a downloadable copy on my front page.

I tried to do what you thought last year. Youko maintained the threads on the Fanime forums and I did the Cosplay forums. That was a huge amount of time and you have no idea how many posts that includes reading. By making the thread and having them stickied we cut the time down, but we still researched as many of the threads as possible.

This year I would occasionally go through and post in the threads, but doing both forums myself with my other demands was still very time consuming.

Thank you for posting ^^)

Having the gathering lists at the info tables this year was really helpful...

Maybe it would be a good idea to get together with the people at Stage 0. I heard them make several announcements and it might be worth having them announce gatherings when they're going on and where.

Yeah, it is very time consuming to go through all the threads. So let's make a sticky that says "All Gatherings for 2007 Sign Up Here" or something. Then only the leader of each of their gatherings are allowed to sign up. Like I will reply in that thread saying :

Death Note Gathering 2007
Location: Blah
Time: Blah
Day: Blah

Then a mod can update the first post of that thread with the info provided. That way, it'll be easier than going through every single thread. Sorry if this idea was already proposed. X_X

This is an excellent idea!  And if the thread could be updated by the leaders up to at least Friday night (there weren't any gatherings on Friday, were there?  If so, then the updates could be done up to Thursday night) so anyone able to get onto the forum would have an updated list of gatherings.  I think BSaphire was able to update up to the 24th and appreciate the updated list.  Having copies of the list posted at BOTH con information desks would be great, too, then if there were any changes to the list that had to be made (hopefully none) maybe the leaders of the gatherings could update right at the tables.

I didn't see copies of the gatherings at the info tables ....  But having announcements at Stage Zero would be nice.  Maybe just before the half hour (if it's not interrupting whatever show/panel is on) say: The Eva gathering is at the fountains in 5 minutes.

Hey, maybe we could get the announcements also made in the dealers room?  Only I'd give it 10 minutes instead of 5 to give everyone a chance to get their shopping done and get out of the dealers room.

I was able to find every thing.... well also because BSaphire is my mother. But most every one knows that.

I am sorry that I was not able to help my mother this year. I had lots of work with costumes and on top of that a very timely, hard working job. I still feel as though everything is spinning.  :-&

This year I will be taking on the cosplay.com end of the gathering list. I hope to do a good job. See you all next year.

Yes there were gatherings on Friday, with a pretty good turn out for the ones I shot..^^) I heard from some that they knew I wasn't able to update after the 24th so they checked through both forums and read the posts to see if there were any changes. Most changes happened in the particular gathering thread so they alread knew before me. Some never posted the change on mine, they just posted it within the thread. I would like to have a white board with sleaves for the gathering to be placed in for both info tables next year. I will try to have some abilities at con with the gathering list for next year. I too want the updates on there and I might just find someone to undertake keeping this current during con (both the lists at the table and the lists on the forums.)

I know that Friday the list was very accessable. I know that the list was packed up with the stuff from the info table so as not to get misplaced. If it had stayed out (since it could not be taped down) the list might have grown legs of it's own and tried to see the con from somewhere else ^^). When I asked about "Stage 0" I was told that there was no place to put the list and that they couldn't help me. I too thought that it would be a prime location and an announcement would have been awesome!!! I will see if it is possible next year. I don't know about the dealers room though. It get's pretty noisy in there. I don't know if anyone would hear it. If "Stage 0" announced it then the chances of some cospeeps in the dealers room finding out would be greatly increased, if only by word of mouth.

Kind of what I have been doing. I always use my post on page 1 of a thread to keep all updates, wheather a gathering or gatherings list. This way they can go to page one and find the info.

When info on a gathering is posted I request: Who {Joe Annon Gathering}, When {Saturday}, Meeting Place {2nd floor convention lobby entrance}, Location {Fountains in Front of the Convention}. The guidelines and info needed for the list is posted at the top of the list post in my thread. Sometimes gatherings are done outside of the forums and I get emails and or PM's to be included. Don't be sorry about proposing and idea. I appreciate your thoughts and I know you are trying to help ^^).

Well I have been running this poll on the Fanime forums and the Cosplay.com/Fanime forum. Combined to date there are 44 votes... but it has received over 422 views and 18 posts combined.

Call me crazy... ok Deviant ^^) but those #'s don't match up with the poll results. SO again I want to encourage you to vote and give me your feed back, good or bad. My goal is to make the 2007 list better and more available than ever before!

Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated ^^)

Thanks

Now to reply to those who have commented...^^)

Itachi no Jutsu & zoupzuop2: Thank you for your energy!! I would like to suggest that you check and see if someone has started a 2007 thread for either a Ranma 1/2 or HunterXHunter gathering. There is a good chance that the HXH gathering may get incorporated into the 2007 "Jump" gathering since HXH is a "Jump" release. If there isn't a thread already started (be sure and search the old ones too) go ahead and start a new one or revive the old one.
Thank you for posting and
I'm wishing both of you Anime Corrupted wishes & Deviant Cosplay dreams!!! ^^)

I checked out the info booth twice a day on Saturday and Sunday.  Unfortunately, I also didn't see the cosplay gatherings info sheet  :(

I'm sad about the CLAMP gathering confusion  :(   I stayed at the CLAMP between 12:00 and 12:20 and rushed to change to participate in the Full Metal Alchemist gathering at 12:30.
