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.
man, there needs to be a how-to vid on glomping...or some sort of pamphlet.
I'll make the pamphlet/flyer! I'll hand them out next year too! *nod nod* "Glomping: How To's and What Not to Do's...srsly we aren't playing football"
gah, now I really need to do that

Working rovers, i saw a lot of people that also continually followed around certain people to glomp, touch, and basically harass those people. So many harassment complaints in 07.

Aside from not wanting to be touched by randos, some people have expensive and/or fragile costumes. I'd be REALLY angry if someone ruined a part of my costume.

That is video is quite terrifying :o

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.

I totally agree. I would definitely be pissed if someone decided to glomp me without my permission.

I saw that video and Maaan If I was in cosplay and she glomped me D: she would have gotten the cuss out of her life!

I find it rude that someone just randomly runs up to you and glomps you especially if you have like a headgear or other items that you worked your heart and soul over and it gets ruined like that.

Personal space please!

Oh shit.... I am in that video. I remember her now. That's ININ getting glomped right after the Sora with the donut. You can see me an Chloe get out of the way at the last second. I remember that Raymond was a bit shocked after it happened. She almost knock him over.

Yah... not cool.

Yeah, I hate paperwork I was stuck in the Rover's office filing reports and dealing with SJ PD on MULPITLE occasions...

We'll have 'might' have more boys in blue in uniform...

think of the chaos of someone was foolish to glomp one of them?...

That would be ALL bad.  >:(

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.
People that regularly attend conventions *might* be used to seeing glomps, but it doesn't mean that they want to be glomped. Keep in mind that we also have new people that have never been to a convention/FanimeCon before.

Not always the case.  I've been going to Fanime since the Foothill days, and I make it very clear that glomping is unwanted as far as I'm concerned.  It's clear others feel the same way, regardless of how long they've been going to Fanime and other cons.  Saying that con veterans are used to glomps is painting with a rather broad brush.

I think I filed more incident reports than I wanted to. It would be nice to have more police officers on hand. It seemed that they were never there.

I hate glompers. I've had people follow me around so they could glomp me. I swear, some people don't seem to realize that we cosplayers are PEOPLE, not anime characters. I've seen people have their costumes or props broken due to glomping, and I feel really bad for those people. I don't mind if people ask me for a hug, but if they run at me with full force and surprise me, I have a problem with that. It's common courtesy to ask first. I think a lot of glompers think that cosplayers are anime characters and don't feel pain.

lol.  zOMG, you know that's on youtube.com?  She told me about it awhile ago, and said I was famous on the internet 'cause I was partially in a video at Fanime '07.  But, yeah, man... I got scared when that happened. It all happened so fast. D:

BTW, HI MORDYAN! ^^

Gah, I wrote my post incorrectly. I meant

What's bad is if you read the comments from the youtube video, people are going, "OMG, that's so cool, I'm going to do this, too!!" which means we might have even more inconsiderate glompers running around this year.  I swear, if anyone tries doing this to me, unasked, they're going to get a hard shove in the face and/or a cussfest.
