Hotel and Facilities / Don't Room Stuff
« on: May 11, 2011, 10:49:37 PM »
Hi, my name is Bm-Atticus. I have a room booked for the San Jose Marriott which is connected to the convention center. I had two friends pull out for financial reasons and I could use a roommate or two to help keep costs low.

Just a little information about us and the room. As of now, there are six us ranging from 18 - 22, five girls and one boy, all non smokers. There is also the possibility of more people.

The room has been booked from friday to monday.

The room has one kingsized bed, which can fit up to three people. What we did last year was rotate each night for the bed if people wanted it. But we mostly slept on sleeping bags and air matteress.

If we can get at least two more people the cost for the entire weekend should range from 37-40 dollars.

My email is Edduty@gmail.com. Feel free to ask for more information. Thanks!

Eight people in a room? Eesh. I know that it's practiced more than people let on, but just fyi it really makes Fanime look bad when you've got eight people crammed into a room designed to hold 4 max. I understand the fiscal appeal of getting a hotel room for 40 bucks for the whole weekend, but the damage it does to Fanime's reputation isn't worth it in the end.

Anyways, I hope you reconsider the sardine approach. :)
It is also a breach of fire codes and OH&S requirements. 'Room Stuffing' is illegal and the hotel can and will kick you out should they find out about it.

Registration / reg questions
« on: February 19, 2011, 12:27:12 AM »
Hi

I’m from Australia, each year (since 2005), I’ve gone on a round the world trip stopping at different conventions around North America (mainly to meet up with friends that I’d otherwise never get to see). I have a list of about 20 conventions in the US that I’ve been trying to get to, but most of them fall in the parts of the year where I can’t get leave from work. Thus, I haven’t been able to get to a con in California. To date I’ve been to Anime Detour, Anizona, Sakuracon, Connecticon, Otakon (4 times), Anime Iowa, AnimeFest, Anime Evolution (twice), Kumoricon (twice), NDK, AWA and AFO and I run Melbourne Anime Festival (Manifest) and anime.au here at home. ^_^


This year, I’m hoping to change that. It’s looking like I might be able to get leave for the Fanime weekend and head across the pond to San Jose for a few days (in addition to my normal trip later in the year).

So before I go and spend around $3,000 on flights, I have a few questions related to Fanime registration.

How much does it cost? The price is not listed on the website which only gives a link to the account registration. I assume the price only shows up when the site asks you to pay – hidden somewhere after you’ve made an account and filled in all the details...
What gets printed on the badge? Is it like Otakon where you can put any name you want on it once you get the badge, is there no name, or is a name pre-printed?
If a name is pre-printed, does it have to be my so called “legal” name?
Why does the account reg form ask for gender as a required question?
What happens when my preferred name doesn’t match the name noted on my ID?
