Ideas and Suggestions / Re: Ideas/Suggestions for Fanime 2008

hello! its been a while since i've posted that in october, but now that I'm back, I just want to say "THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! ^ - ^ THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO RESPONDED AND COMMENTED ON THIS PROBLEM!
I mean honestly, I know there are ways to avoid situations such as these... but like you never know these days you know! sometimes, no matter how well you're trying to avoid them, some of them are good and can sneak up when you least expect it! I mean, if they want to hurt you..THEY WILL FIND A WAY! I mean, I know it might sound like alot of time/effort and money might be needed if we were to do like background checks on attendees so that we know they're not pedofiles or registered sex offenders, but isn't there some way we can reduce the rate in which instances such as these can happen or lead themselves to happen? I mean, I believe Fanime should be a safe place for all kinds of people wanting to attend can go to...prevention is the best solution for anything because sooner or later something bad can happen and Fanime's life will be endangered! I believe though that if there are no possible ways to do background checks, then I agree to having more rovers, peace officiers and just more staff members around to protect the people who, frankly, like me, look younger than their age and can seem like EASY VICTIMS! We especially need more at night and with all this, I would like to know more information then on how to be a rover so that I can help out too! To Braveheart, you're a very kind man, please sign me up right away!

hmm... being a girl who went to fanime and having experienced this myself firsthand... i would really like there to be more SECURITY people around fanime or like peace officiers/etc whom i can turn to because I have had TOO many stalkers to fanime last year and it even came to a point where it turned me into tears because of the shock of what happened.

I had a stalker who followed me and looked for me around the convention saying things like of how cute of a "maid" i was. basically he was hitting on me whenever i passed by and I really tried to avoid him but well wearing what i was wearing, you "stand" out you know!
anyways, he even followed me when i tried to go around the outside of the building to go back to my hotel room. my other friends were so terrified when i told them i was being followed on my cell phone, however he snuck up behind me so fast that i had to hang up. my friends thought that something bad happened and all of them were so worried about me that they rushed together and surrounded him. and believe me, being surrounded like that, its almost like a mugging.

the guy left after noticing that like ten and more people were around him and not only did i burst into tears, i felt so bad after that i just had to go back to my room. i didn't want my friends to worry about me and i didn't want to feel like i had to be taken care of.

my other friend was also stalked during the con and even after the con, she was continully stalked. She was stalked however by a guy that happened to have known her and her brother before(i think he apparently was acquitaned with the brother). he followed her into a grocery store and well after a few encounters with the guy she called the police and had him taken away. 

PLEASE PLEASE i dunno if it might cost more money or something but PLEASE if there is something we can do about security issues ESPECIALLY during the late nights. LETS PLEASE DO SO. Conventions like these can attract predators and especially sexual predators who are looking for girls like me. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE! there needs to be procedures of how people register. i believe that there should be background checks on everyone whos attending so we know there isn't a sexual convict or offender at the convention site. There are children here and there are younger girls than I who can be victimized! PLEASE LET US STOP THE STALKERS!

i dunno if anyone wants this or not, but me, being from the Bay AREA and this being the BIGGEST con in northern california, where the "bay" is techinically... would anyone mind the DJ playing some bay slaps/hyphee music at the con? i mean, if not those kind of music... then what about those "timeless" songs that well... anyone can dance to like "YMCA" or like "jump on it" by sir mix a lot?

it would be a nice addition to the mix of songs already being played by the dj and well... to make everyone's music tastes fair, the music genres can rotate in a circle like techno, then like rave, then like those kinds of songs that you electric slide to...

again, its a party everyone has again different tastes in music.

the dances should be able to accomodate what everyone wants right?
