Didn't most people move over to HoN?

Movie was utterly terrible. On par with Wing Commander or the Fantastic Four movie from the 80's.

Maybe worth seeing in a theater just to make fun of it obnoxiously loud the entire time.


Maybe.

Super Robot Wars Alpha.

So it can barely sell just like the SRW games that DID come out in the US? Besides the huge headache that it caused for over two months causing approximately 60 hours of overtime a week amongst 6 people?

No thank you.

I don't know, half of the games suggested on this thread either; suck, wouldn't sell at all, or would be a huge pain in the ass way more than what it's worth.



Oh, that's right. The thread was titled: "Games that need to be brought to America and the logistical nightmares they would be and how Pyron just looks for sh*t to troll when he disagrees with it". My bad.

I promise to try not to let that happen again.

It's all good. I wasn't trying to come off as malicious as I did in that last post. I was only half reading. Eric is pretty darn helpful for having his name spelled wrong.

Ah, I thought you were implying that group reg on the whole would be harder. Gotcha.

Sorry. Been a long day.

Ah, ok.

Just throwing it out there.

Anyway, people know what they are getting into when they decide to group reg. having the choice will ultimately make it easier for someone, somewhere methinks.

We won't even deal with that.

Which part? More than one person or the latter of Fanime not being responsible or both?

Think this is in the wrong forum...

But...

Macross all the way.

One of the biggest advantages of Group Registration is that someone could register you and pick up your badge for you. Thanks to some changes in registration, the pre-reg line is now moving a lot faster, so this advantage may not be as important.

Two disadvantages for group reg is some limited payment options and ONLY the group leader may register the group and pick up the badges. That means that if you arrive at con BEFORE your group leader, you may NOT register yourself individually.

Please include why you would like group reg back.

I say bring it back.

Even with the pre-reg line moving faster, this could help even more by allowing 1-2 people to pick up a chunk of badges instead of 5,10,15, etc, all standing around in line clogging them up.

Limited payment options is something people will just have to deal with. It's really not going to make or break someone going or not. Something like that can be planned around very easily and way ahead of time.

However, I don't see why you can only have one person from the group picking up the badges. Two would work and with some small changes (that you may have already done since the possibility of group reg. being back is there) you could easily keep track of and separate those coming for group badges and those who aren't, which is what I'd imagine is a problem at this point for trying to have more than one authorized person to pick up badges. That eliminates most of the possible problems with people arriving before their group leader and picking up badges. If half of a group gets there and has authorized person 1 with them or the other half with authorized person 2, everything works out..

No more than 2 since it would pretty much start to go back to "why do we have group reg in the first place?" but could work easily.

As for irresponsible group leaders, to be quite blunt, it's not your problem. They agreed within their group that Person 1 and (possibly) Person 2 will be those responsible for the badges once they leave Fanime Staff's hands. Ultimately people will be bugging you if they lose badges or can't find them, but adding a simple line in your agreement for going to Fanime at all fixes that and absolves you of having to deal with it. Which isn't to say you wouldn't want to help those who lost their badges, but it puts the whole thing in a different light when people agree to the terms for registering as a group.

Schoep, who said his label has seen a recent "uptick" in sales despite a worsening economy, said the songs distributed by his label are no different from those of more popular acts like Rage Against the Machine.

"If you're going to be able to carry that hard-core Marxist stuff, what is the problem with someone saying, 'White pride, worldwide?'" Schoep asked.

"You can't have a double standard. If pro-white voices can't be heard, what about rap artists who say it's time to kill cops and drag them through the streets?"


This pretty much sums up any intelligent argument anyone should have for this. Most people will obviously choose to have a double standard, or maybe even the lesser of the two evils but only because they're 'comfortable' with the Marxist/KillCops rappers.

If you hadn't noticed a LOT of places opted for 3-day sales this year with Black Friday pricing during all 3 days. While there were a few places with good deals on this or that for a few hours, most of their sales were for the weekend.

Personally I like how they did it this year.

Pretty sure under common law there has to be proof that the two were "together", not just roommates.

In California I think it's 5 or 7 years.

In California, there is no common law marriage. ^^

Well there ya go.

Back on topic. >.>;;

I've a new level of respect for Jun and Pyron. Not to mention Chun. Well said, all of you.

Mizuki, also glad you caught the troll doing exactly that after getting hammered on for 4 pages.

Utterly ridiculous.

Maybe that petition will get the numbers it needs and this will all become moot.

Here's to hoping.

Thats fine. I still say vote 8. It's not more on the marriage part more on the teaching the kids about it. They should just wait.

I have nothing to add already that Jun or Pyron didn't say save for:

You're a God damned idiot.

Open up your mind. Do a little research. Perhaps then you wouldn't come off so ignorant. Kids aren't taught about marriage in school. Kids also aren't taught that being gay is or isn't ok. These are things that parents need to start taking responsibility for. Everyone is always so quick to blame someone else before they look inward. It's sickening and when people bandwagon things like this without actually knowing wtf is going on it just adds to the overall stupidity and bigotry of the world.
