i have a question, are our real names going to be on the badges? Because i REALLY do not want my leagal name on there, i don't even go by it. And i;ve had problems in tha past, yada yada yada, so i was wondering if it was just gonna be the fan names? i would like that a whole lot better..

Yes, your real name will be on the badge, as far as I know. I don't know the full details though.

Yes I am sorry to say that your full legal names needs to be on your badge. That's how we sort out the badges and how we know that it's your badge when you pick it up. But your name shouldn't be very prominent on the front, so don't worry about people glancing it and seeing it.

If you are worried about your name being found out...all you got to do is cover it from the outside...well I suggest anyway...because if you need to verify that is you all you got to do is pull it out of its sleave to show them the real thing unmarked...but dont know if that is allowed

Actually we have discussed this thoroughly over the years. That is the reason why your fan name is so much larger than the rest of the font and your legal name can barely be read a foot away. We're not trying to make you feel unsafe, we just need to make sure that your badge goes to you, not someone who claims that that badge with "their" fan name is theirs. How can you prove a badge is yours by a fan name? It's easier this way for everyone.

And honestly, with 10,000+ people at con, I doubt that anyone will try to read your name, take note and do something with it. Hell, I barely notice the cosplayers half the time, and a good chunk of them try to glomp me while I'm working @_@

Rei: But youre so so glompable ^^

DLZ: That only works if you have a paper badge, and if you buy a paper badge you can just go ahead and...not put your name on it if you want o.O If you pre register, however, you get a sweet laminated badge with all your info pre printed on it. Theres no sleeve or anything like that. You could still modify it, but it wouldnt look very good.

But, really. Kegan. The legal names are pretty freaking tiny. You shouldnt have to worry about it. The only way I can see it being an issue is if youre worried about a SPECIFIC person (which it sounds like you are) seeking you out by sight and finding out your name by making off with your badge or something when youre not looking. But iff youre worried about someone learning your name from your badge while youre just wearing it, I really dont see that as being an issue, unless theyre actively "after you" and know you by sight.

If you cosplay, you can hide your badge and show you badge when requested by staff or entering an event.  Lots of cosplayers do that -__-

^^; Aww thanks, but when I'm running around con, I'm usually printing important stuff like schedules for you guys. You wouldn't want your schedules to be late because I've been tackled by a group of cosplayers, would you?

And I need all the energy I can muster because whoo boy I do a lot of running around during con @_@

Hey...I got the final schedule Thursday night and I had my staff trying to format the entire schedule each day so it would be print-friendly. Do you know how long that takes while making changes as departments phoned  them in? >.<

And doing this when our commercial copier died? I spent three days in a row watching the sun rise from three different Kinko's. That made me sad.

W0rd. I totally feel your pain and appreciate the hard work you did for everyone.

Lots of people forget that, while we're all having fun and Fanime, many others are working hard to make sure all the panels are going smoothly, AMV contests are run, video rooms aren't crashing and all sorts of other fun stuff.

Awww *hugs* haha

Yeah, I know its hard for you guys, I was just poking fun at you. I spend a lot of time hanging out in ConOps when theyre not stupidly busy, especially on thursday, so I often hear representatives from publications detailing exactly whats going on with schedules and maps and such. I know its a tough job, but it just wouldnt be a convention if the schedules got done the day before, would it? XD

Aww thanks. It's nice getting validation for the hard work we put in. And a lot of people don't know that everyone who works for Fanime is a volunteer, meaning we don't get paid for all the hours we put in. In a sense, we're masochists for working so hard for something where you don't really get much of a material reward. But I think it's worth it for all the friends you make from the experience. <3

Ah but I bet you didn't hear any of the cursing or see any arm flailing that happened during the whole printer break down. Now that was fun.

I hope this year things will be more organized and the schedules will go out on time. I would like this year to be remembered as the year when schedules began to be handed out on time, with the correct info. It would be a nice legacy for my last year in this department.  :D

Most convention staff work as volunteers (i.e. non-paid positions) and Fanime is no different. I can't speak for Anime-Expo as I do not know if they do or don't get paid. :)

I think both your real name and your fan name will be on the badge :) Atleast thats how I remember it being last year.

According to my intelligence sources (secret ninja spies who work for me)

AX staff do not get paid....however they get better "benefits". This is made possible by:
1) the staff to attendee ratio at AX is much much smaller
2) AX is not "shy" about accepting corporate sponsorships *delicate cough*  :wink:

I just checked my badges from the previous years and your legal name is bigger than your fan name. But seriously not by much. And even if you have a person 2 feet in front of you it's still hard to read with the badge picture taking up 95% of the badge.

And that's why I <3 you so much! Seriously, by the third day of seeing a Kinko's I was getting rabid by the time I got to the convention with the 10,000 printed sheets of schedule/forms/badges. This year, if Fluffy dies again, I'm so taking a sledgehammer to her.

Usually conventions don't pay you. That's the way of the anime convention.

And don't worry, my second, Betty, is taking over publications next year. She's so talented and nice. You'll love her! She'll make publications what it can and should be. As for myself, I'll be floating around until another department needs me. I like to think of myself as the Mary Poppins of departments.  :P
