I'm really confused as to whether or not you have accepted applicants for the gallery or not yet? Should I assume that because I have not received any email notification about it that I have just not been chosen? Thank you!

email art gallery and they should be able to get back to you.
if you go to you should be able to regenerate the email

I didn't think of the possibility that it'd need to be changed easily.

I never understood people to want the information provided to them to be correct....go figure... =D

Thanks, Eric, for enabling downloads of the pocket guide.

I didn't do anything. I'm just a messenger:)

Weird, I don't see any download instructions (Had to refresh my browser). Downloading IS enabled now, which is great, but you have to create an account to do it, which kinda sucks. I hate giving my email out to random sites :(

Do they have publishing rights that restrict you from hosting pdfs on the regular website? Just a curiosity, not a criticism.

Sorry, it was something about consistency and a single platform. It makes sense if updates need to be pushed out during would suck to update the pdf each time.

Did they actuall scan that upside down??

That is how it is in the pocket guide. One half Clockwork Alchemy, the other half Fanime. The Fanime programming pages are upside down in relation to the Clockwork Alchemy pages. This is so that reading from either the "front" or the "back" it is a normal book.

For the record: "I can't recommend using" those things is my way of saying "absolutely do not use these." (And "my way of saying" = extreme understatement with a heavy dose of snark, but I realize that might not come across on the internet and that it might be taken as a list of suggestions. Though, I have no idea why someone would bring a waffle iron in the first place. ;])

That's an obvious answer...WAFFLES! =D

yah, some people only read the words they want to read. So they miss all the qualifiers and the warnings... *sigh*

@ewu But you cut out the rest of the quote lol.  Nina said they don't recommend using those things.  See?  Common sense! :)

*sigh* you know my intentions:P Just gotta make sure it is clear. Common sense is not as common as you think!.....

probably violate the rules:)
Hi guys.... Please be safe and do not violate any hotel rules. Not only is your deposit at risk, but you risk being ejected from your room and jeopardize the safety of you and the guests around you/in the hotel.

Please also keep in mind that hotel representatives and housing coordinators regularly check the threads to answer questions.

I do wish that when threads were moved or split, there was something to alert the people in them, though.

By default, the forums system posts a redirection topic, but sometimes the mod will opt not use that option.
Odd, I checked the forums records and I show no deleted messages by you.
Please note that it is dangerous and grounds for ejection from a room if you have more than the stated occupancy in the room. The hotels are unable to prepare for an emergency if they have greater numbers than expected in the rooms. Please also note that hotel staff and representatives regularly monitor the forums.

Please don't do this...its for your safety and wellbeing.

I'm kind wondering what I missed out on before ewu edited the above three posts...

Nothing edited out. The edit was to the post title. Simply split off from the other thread with no changes. I'm not THAT shady....just mildly shady ;)

For those wondering, the original thread:,20045.0.html

You staff mind answering why it's taking so long to finalize everything when that should have been taken care a long time ago? Or shall I expect silence?

So things (guest, events, programming) are getting announced as soon as we can. However, it is a complex and sensitive process and the proper steps must be taken. Keep in mind that sometimes we are also doing this in both English and Japanese.

We have heard your feedback and I even replied to your post here with respect to guests:

So we actually have a database of all the requests in this thread and this is not a blind thread. Please keep the suggestions flowing.

As for booking earlier, we are working hard on moving up the timeline. While its hard to show you progress, our acquisitions timeline is moving up. However, it takes time to move it up and it takes time for other convention resources like budgeting to ramp up to support the timeline change.

We are working to improve and love to hear your continued feedback.

Contact the Fanime registration provider CMR and they should be able to resolve this. Feel free to confirm with them if they were the ones that told you not to worry about it.

Hi there!

I have had nothing but problems with registering for her artist alley table. I have now received an email stating I cannot pay for my table because I cannot be a group leader (for badges for myself and my helpers) and an artist in artist alley. This was never stated as a requirement in the beginning. I have received an email requiring me to pick a new group leader BEFORE I can pay for her table. The whole registration system is down until 10pm tonight and I am not convinced there is enough time to give me a chance at table selections.

As you know, table selection is TOMORROW at noon. Please please allow me to be a group leader and pay for her table so I can complete table selection along with everyone else, tomorrow at noon or immediately resolve this issue in some other way.

Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated. It is not fair to leave her out of the table selection process.

Please immediately provide me with a phone number to a real person to resolve this situation.

Thanks in advance for your immediate attention in this matter.



Letter received by Fanime below-

Dear Artist Alley Artist,

Our records show that you are currently a group leader, and also an approved Artist Alley artist.

Unfortunately, as an Artist Alley artist, you can not be in a group. Please appoint a new leader for your group to pick up badges. With this new update,  you'll be receiving a new confirmation for your Artist Alley Artist membership and table payment.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. 
Kind Regards,

Linda Char l FanimeCon Registration l P: 800-924-4232 or 415-979-2282 l [email protected]
