This topic was about one of last year's panels, so I'm going to go ahead and lock it now.

So i'm staff.
And i want to host a pony panel.
and two of my friends want to cohost it with me.
And you get panel hosting discounts on tickets.
But i know they're too lazy to fill out the form.
How would i go about making it so that they get the discounts, since my ticket is free anyway :D
(For some reason, my PMs don't work, >_>)

I know one of the panelists was really upset about his panel being cut short because of the delay from the Momoi Q&A. I don't remember who it was though. I just want you guys to keep that in mind that when a panel is significantly shortened in time than what was promised to them, some people will feel cheated out of what they opted for. I do not speak on behalf of any panelists, but I can understand how it would feel if that ever happened to me.

Some thoughts here:
3) After doing panels at Fanime for 3 years straight now, I have to wonder will you ever move fan panels outright into the con and out of the Marriott? It honestly feels like we're pushed out of the way. Most other cons put video rooms in the hotels, and put the live programming in the con.
4) While I realize in retrospect I did a poor job naming/describing two of my panels this year, I also wondered about being more descriptive on the website. Yes, I know the programming guide is limited to X characters for the title and description, but maybe allowing a "longer" description on the web site? When we're forced to truncate our descriptions/titles down, we sometimes accidentally cut out good info.
6) I'm not convinced panels beyond 12am will work out at Fanime. It really seems like Fanime is a large, spacious con, and people are running around all day and get really worn out by night. Most people want to go to bed or chill in a comfortable, laid-back environment like the video rooms by midnight. While the RE panel, and our neighboring Hetalia panel, were pretty packed at 12am, people in the audience afterwards asked why we selected to be so late at night. The 1am slot was just too late, too, for the other panel we did. I think either next year, panels should cut off at midnight, or allow 18+ panels to be a bit earlier ahead of the 10pm time Fanime wanted all the adult panels to take place after. Otherwise, probably going to give serious consideration to dropping the 18+ part of the "What's Wrong with" panel series we do (which we plan to do again next year).
7) Make sure panel tech stuff is setup properly between panels.

It'd be most helpful to newcomer panelists if the panel registration stuff mentions you can't get a 2 hour panel during the day. If we'd known that, we would have broken the fanfic workshop up into different 1 hour sessions instead! :D
As for the panel registrations, I can understand why things were done the way they were this year with the gradual panel confirmations, but could we please next year give some priority to those who submit requests first? It was more than a little nerve-wracking putting in the request almost as soon as it opened and then not finding anything out until April as to whether or not we had a panel at all; we weren't planning on going if we didn't get the panel this year, and the hotel we had our eyes on had a discount rate that was non-refundable, so we couldn't make the reservations until we knew for sure we'd be going. This isn't going to be an issue for us personally next year- we will most definitely be coming back, but it could be a real headache for other newcomers.

GoH and other popular Panels
Is it possible to have some panels at the main video room?
Panels with a lot of girls screaming (like the Yuya Matsushita panel) made a lot of noise and panelists in the room next door have a hard time holding a panel because of all the noise.
And the PACKED panels (I think it was the Gaia Online panels?) could perhaps use a bigger room.
GAINAX GoH has a panel in the main video room from time to time, so I think it could be arranged...
Sorry if I'm making an impossible suggestion!

One of the things most requested of our 18+ panel last year was to have it later on at night. So this time around, I made the request for the 18+ to be at night, so we'll see how that goes - just doing anything on our end to make Fanime rock. I'm not so sure about early, but I mean if people will go, then by all means it should be an option eventually.
Quote from: Anicofe on April 26, 2011, 05:00:28 PMI have communicated with the individual in charge of this panel separately via e-mail.
Question about the Hetalia Q & A panel that was supposed to be on Monday. Our original time was supposed to be a two hour panel from 12pm - 2pm, but our time slot got pushed to a one hour panel from 2pm -3pm. Is there any way we can get our 2 hour slot back?

@Kava - So in your conformation e-mail, I know you said not to mention anything about discounts and that the information would be forthcoming in another email. I've registered, but haven't paid my registration fee. Who do I need to contact about that so I can get my registrations squared away. It's almost the 30 day mark, and I'm just afraid that I won't be able to pay the pre-registration rate if it doesn't get taken care of soon.
Thanks for all your hard work with the new system and dealing with all us nervous nerds. ^^
