This is my first time coming to Fanime from my current residence (Berkeley), so I'm not sure either how traffic usually is the Friday morning of con, or how the public transit closures will impact traffic further (they do not directly impact my travel, but people being rerouted may impact my travel). If I want to leave Friday morning and get to a photoshoot at 10:30AM, what time should I leave? According to both google maps and 511 traffic, it usually takes around an hour (in traffic) to get to downtown San Jose from south Berkeley, so I was thinking of leaving an hour and a half before my shoot to give me plenty of time, but is this enough, or should I leave even earlier?

Moving past the registration woes - Eric do you think you can shed some light as to what's at least being discussed regarding the Cosplay Spectacular? The ill-will after the event is being left to fester with no response past "we're reading your feedback." I know the staff have jobs and other responsibilities to attend to first but it would help if there was at least an acknowledgement of what happened.

I heard several rumors that several veteran staff members left after 2012, including the masquerade director, and while I never saw these confirmed by Fanime staff themselves it is fairly obvious that the rumors were true. Fanime needs to get someone who can run a proper masquerade. I don't see why this would be a problem in a state that is famous for being home to many accomplished cosplayers and several internationally-known conventions. hire someone from out of state if you have to. the masquerade is too important to not have it run successfully.

I am going to a panel that's till after 12 and I am just curious on where the Hilton is connected to the convention. Thank you to whoever responds!

It's been a few years since I went to a concert at Fanime so I had a quick question do they charge admission to the music fest even if you have a badge? Or is it free but once it's full and you didn't line up early you don't get in?
Long time ago concerts were separate from the con and had tickets.

Excuse me for the double post... But it is now August and I still have not received any acknowledgment of this issue? Are there any Masquerade 2012 staff available to be contacted?

Masquerade: Long opening acts were LONG -- and didn't help the Ball-Masquerade time conflict. I wasn't timing last year, but I seem to remember this year's preshow (band + karaoke winner) running something between 45 minutes to an hour. As bitchy as it sounds, I come to Masquerade for the cosplay; maybe consider shortening the opening acts and saving the bulk of it for intermission?
And speaking of: had there been a capacity cap reached such that they were turning people away at the doors for the Masq? It was odd with seeing quite a few empty seats, but I don't know what the building capacity is. Just curiosity.

Whoa. Mikey, you aren't one to just make up numbers.
I think I will hold on to my answer until I get some real numbers.

FLOW autographs: This was less Fanime's fault, but I was extremely disappointed that I didn't get an autograph. I waited in the line for two hours, only to walk away empty-handed. I understand that these things happen, but I was absolutely crushed. I've never cried at a Fanime before, I've only left with some of the best memories of my life. But I started crying in the middle of the hall, cried off-and-on the rest of the day, and was irreversibly, miserably upset for the rest of the con. For such a huge guest, more than one autograph session would have been nice.

Well, nix the parts about their music not being my taste.
I do actually think they're talented. I do.
But honestly, I used to look forward to the variety of guests we'd get. I have to say, for me, having a band be a guest again and again and again is crummy for me. Especially with the merged concerts, where I couldn't figure out accurate info about who was performing when.
Let me put it this way.
I loved AnCafe. It was a fun concert. If AnCafe was back EVERY SINGLE YEAR I'd probably go once or twice, then you know what? I've seen their performance. It's a long line to wait in.
I appreciate FLOW's participation, because I know so many people had a lot of fun. This is just my personal opinion. I don't like seeing the same person headline over and over again, and that would apply to almost everyone. (ALMOST.)
And the only reason I brought it up is because everyone else is saying "Let's do FLOW again, for the third year" and I really do want to go to Musicfest again. =/
Also, something I love about Fanime is seeing who is showing up! I love seeing our regular guests, but with big events like Musicfest... I think it's really exciting when those are announced. My first thought is "YAYYYYY MUSICFEST"
Or maybe if we're doing FLOW again have three acts? That would be kind of epic. Especially if we featured different styles of music or something.

I'd just like to suggest maybe having the dance lessons somewhere nearer to the convention? Or was it mandatory to have it at the Fairmont because of the hardwood floor? It was super cold and walking over there when I know that I had to leave a busy Registration kinda made me sad. o: The fairmont is farrr. >>;; And when I went, there were only... maybe 20 people who were at the lessons so... that kind of space didn't seem too necessary.
(though maybe it was the distance or lack of schedules that made the attendance kind of sparse...)
Err annnywayssss, maybe just have a staff-only after hours lessons (or if there were some, announce it in an e-mail during a meeting)? I disliked having to leave Reg Friday, Saturday, or Sunday to attend dance lessons. o:
