Personally, I prefer Rovers...

Anything else just doesn't have the right 'ring' to it.

We just started calling it "The Department Formerly Known As Rovers"

Newb Question Alert!

So I never bothered looking into what goes on in the background of Fanime (or any con), so what does a Rover do exactly? Heh.  ??? I'm looking to work staff '08 and not sure where to look, so asking questions seems to be the best start.

The group is responsible for

    line control - make sure lines flow, not congested, not blocking walkways, exits, etc
    crowd control - make sure crowds do not get rowdy, don't block things, etc
    access control - ID check for the 18+ rooms, authorized personnel
                          for certain things (to be defined later)
    general physical safety - no running; no glomping; no blocking doors,
                                      stairs, fire extinguisher, fire alarms; etc
    escort duties - escort staff, attendees, or GoH as needed (requested)
    patrol dealer's hall - walk the dealer's hall, a presence helps to deter shoplifting;
                               keep traffic flowing
    policy compliance - weapons policy, etc
    assisting with emergencies - verifying emergency, calling it in, control crowd
    harassment complaints
    missing persons
    lost and found - new for '08

One thing to note on emergencies, we do not provide any emergency services.  We verify, call it in, control the crowd, and wait for emergency services - Police, Fire, EMS.

My email didn't get sent to the address it came back, nya....

If any of you are trying to get in touch with the department head for volunteer opportunities and can't get through on e-mail, PM me your contact info and I'll go ahead and forward it myself.  The more people we have to help out the smoother things go since, as the old department name suggests, we really need a lot of bodies out there roving about.

So don't let a bounced e-mail discourage you!

Many thanks for clarification. I'll definitely think about it. I'm not sure where I would fit best so I'm still scouting what's out there.

I'ev thought it over and I think this is the year I start volunteering (always knew i'd end up doing it), so i'll try sending another email in case I messed it up somehow and if that doesn't work i'll PM you the info.

Second time's the charm, my email got sent and i've already received a reply. I don't know why in the world it didn't go through the first time, but it's safe to say that the address is fine. If you have trouble with it just send it once more.

If you have trouble with rovers@fanime.com, please try safety@fanime.com

One of those should go through and you'll get a reply ASAP. Thanks!  ;D

Well I am throwing my two cents in... I figure the rovers are kind of like the ones making sure all goes well. Would even be a good bet to call them Guardians. Always out there always looking out for trouble or of any in need. ^.^
    Also got a message from Daniel that he was gonna get me in touch with someone who was a department head cause Yes like alot of us that want to give back to Fanime I wanna be a rover as well. [ Yes I am crazy so why not hehe]
   Course have not heard anything and I even went as far as sending e-mail to both addys from an entirely different computer. O.O Soooooo can be reached at Ranchangene@yahoo.com  And if I may be so bold Long Live FANIME! HoooYaaaaah!!

At the meeting some people were saying they were getting a lot of spam and started ignoring some emails that didn't have something rover related in the topic. So if no one's contacted you yet and you didn't have anything in the topic try again maybe.
