Barcodes are one option we are looking at, but as with any new technology, it takes time to implement. This year, its a grand spanking new reg system.....barcodes maybe in the future we will see.

Pockystix had a good idea in another thread.


Print them up and bring them in, fanime staff scans them and you're good to go.

Small addendum:

We WILL check your IDs at the Yaoi and Hentai rooms......but having the correct age on the member account will help in emergency situations and liability issues.

There are other aspects that we can use to identify you, but if you are under 19, you should change it.

Feel free to contact us if you want it changed.

use your age come con. We will use that and the other information to confirm your identity against your government issued ID....not school, no age on there, and no countermeasures against counter fitting... :)
Working on getting something up....

you can usually pre reg for the next year's con at the end of con, stay tuned, esp during con. It's a lot cheaper too! (ooh i used "con" 3 times...oh 4 now)

You can log in here:

the #1 exists, but you gotta know the right password at the right speakeasy, at the right time, and talk to the right need to be 21+ too cuz its a speakeasy!!!

no, #1 exists and it belongs to a real person

This price tier ends on April 1. Following that day, the price of a Fanime membership will go up to $55.

See you there!:)

The great thing about state issued IDs is that there is a consistent and reliable way to confirm your age and identity. Without this accurate information in the first place we would be legally remiss such that we cannot identify the involved parties to pertinent parties and/or law enforcement, if required.

IDs for minors are a fickle problem and we are attempting to internally identify a feasible solution that will be a compromise between the amount of exposure we are willing to have and the convenience of our members. Unfortunately this is a decision that is out of the hands of the members and even Registration. We understand your concerns and the repercussions of these policies and we will convey that in our discussions towards a resolution.

In the end, we may need to brave a little inconvenience for the benefit of the con. Lest something unfortunate happens AND the legal protection absent, the legal recourse (and conceivable fallout) could possibly be fatal to the con.

Please be understanding of our position and also understand that we are actively internally discussing these issues also. We welcome suggestions, but arguing about our established policies will only serve to incense emotions.

What is key to a gov't issued ID is that the date of birth will be on the ID. This is key to identifying your age and limiting our liability (legal scary stuff).

Please bring gov't issed PHOTO ID so that we may confirm your age as well as the fact that the ID belongs to you.
I know some of you are checking your online accounts to see that your payment has been received by Fanime. You have also noted that a payment confirmation e-mail was not sent out. Please bear with us for a little longer and we will have a solution soon. Thanks!

Edit (12/13/07): In time you will be able to print out a confirmation reciept. We will keep you updated. Thanks!
We are upgrading and pimpifying our e-mail system...basically changing to a more reliable and cooler e-mail system and we were warned of e-mail "brownouts". please try again. if you have trouble getting through for more than a week then let us know and we'll look into it, but its prob just a few hours of blackout.
