Things that need to not happen at Fanime
« on: October 22, 2007, 09:22:07 PM »

Dead serious, if this girl touched me(thank god I wasn't in a costume she recognized/liked) I would have decked her in the face. This is exactly what I was talking about in the forums previously. People that have absolutely no self-control nor respect. They think it's perfectly okay to run and jump onto people they don't know merely because they have a costume on? You can obviously tell at least one of those people were disgusted when she jumped on them, yet... these people still think it's fun and cute?

the weird thing about this is that i ran into her a few weeks after the con while waiting for the bus one day.

me thinks a wee bit too much sugar/caffeine in the bloodstream.

i say no to glomps(unless its from friends); a simple(emphasis on simple) hug is fine.

Me too (I wish). I just don't like to touched by strangers though.

That's a good thing that didn't happen to me. I always hide from that. but they have to ask if they want to glomp me.

Remember that there is a fine line between harmless glomping and assault.

If worse comes to worse, just go get a rover.

IMO, the glompee is equally responsible as the glomper. if the glompee is aware of the potential tackle, said person can simply give a heads-up, and ideally it would be avoided.

well ironically although physical contact rules should be usually common sense.

some ppl have it and others... well... they need a friendly reminder.

being part of the rover team, usually the golden rule applies:
try others how you want to be treated.

for Cosplayers most of them have a unwritten rule that you will most likely be gawked, glomped, touched, followed and otherwise drawn attention too.

ive been randomly glomp by random passer-by-ers and sometimes your ready for it... other times your not so much.

the point is its suppose to be a friend sign of affection, not a death wish or meaning to harm one another, but again some fan boys/girls forget that things that happen in anime dont happen the same way in real life.

basically, just play nice and try not to hurt each other.  :D

thats my 2 cents

The key word here is "ideally", which never translates all that well into real life.  Some glompers just don't take hints at all.  Of course, this is also hinging on the victim being aware of the oncoming glomp, which may not be the case.

its not that its bad or anything, just that some people dont know exactly how much force they are putting into said glomp itself.

Some may be careful when they go for a glomp, but there are some that go into it like they're trying out for the high school football team: full force without thinking.

This is true... people don't embrace people randomly on the street and if they do it's not really well received so I'm not sure why this happens at cons so much. I suppose I'm just used to it.

And there are those of us who really prefer to maintain personal space except with people who we know very well, and some glompers don't seem to grasp the concept that there are people out there who aren't as touchy-feely as they are.

Didn't we already discuss this chick in the Suggestion thread? Thread over, kidding.
Of course I'm not sure if it's still over there. It doesn't hurt to discuss over again due to safety issues.

Maybe a video shown on the convention center's video network?  "Good idea: being friendly with your fellow fans.  Bad idea: glomping complete strangers with the force of an NFL tackle"

It has nothing to do with the force of the hug or anything like that really(though that just adds to the level of discomfort). If I had food in my hand and some chick I didn't know hugged me and my food flew out of my hands... I would be pissed.

You don't hug people you don't know without asking or anything like that... if you do that in 90% of places, you get punched(LOL BORAT). It's personal space... some people don't like being touched, even more so by strangers.

the food thing is true.

ppl at cons are used to glomping now, some more than others; getting permission first is probably the best way to avoid a punch/hit/kick/slap/etc. in the face/gut/etc.

if it's a hug, I'm fine with that; if it is a glomp, then be careful; i don't like having a broken rib or arm, thank you very much.

heh, actually, I was with one of the couples she attacked, the ichigo rukia one ('power of love i guess') Rukia was feeling sick, and that really pissed her off. But as for glomping, it just needs to be montiored, and one simple rule "Only go after those who have very vivid 'GLOMP ME' signs, or verbally ask for it' I don't know if any of you remember the shirt ninja group, but for a while that's what they did, and when con ops told them to disband, they did. no harm, no foul really
