This 2015 year, we will be hosting Speed Dating workshops, sessions, and more. All FanimeCon attendees (18+) are welcomed to the Speed Dating 101 Workshops. For the first time for the Speed Dating Sessions, the selection and registration process will be a RANDOM LOTTERY-BASED process! Selection for participation is NOT guaranteed, but there is no more hassle of waiting in line.

The Random Lottery-Based Selection/Registration Process for the Speed Dating Sessions is simple:
(1)   Stop by Speed Dating rooms in Fairmont Hotel from 10AM – 3PM on Saturday and Sunday and fill out a registration slip for your desired event session. 1 entry per person per session. Attendees may submit up to max 3 entries per day.

(2)   After you are done signing up, you are free to leave and have fun at con! We require a minimal amount of information from you and only staff personnel are handling the registration process.

(3)   Come back ½ hour prior to your desired session and see if you are randomly selected for that Speed Dating session or else you will forfeit your spot if you were called. Ex: If you registered for the Saturday 12PM session, you must arrive at the rooms at 11:30AM when staffers start to randomly select and process attendees’ registration. Selection for event participation is NOT guaranteed!

We provide heterosexual and queer friendly, gender-neutral (LGBT) speed dating sessions. LGBT sessions, include gay/queer males, lesbian/queer females, and bisexual/pansexual folks, are offered Saturday and Sunday at 2PM. Picture IDs will be checked at the door to verify age.

Staff & Volunteers / Rides to Staff Meeting!!!
« on: February 27, 2012, 05:55:10 PM »
Hello Everyone,

Are you tired of $4+ gas :o ?
Are you exhausted from driving everywhere? Does Amtrak and Greyhound buses seem to cost almost as much as gas now!?  >:(

Fear no more, let's all Carpool TOGETHER!

  • Carpool from Northern California to San Jose (Davis, Sacramento, SF, etc.). State your location!
  • Driver or passenger or both?
  • If driver, how many seats in your car?

If you want to be a passenger, we will work out gas money. It'll be fun! :)
All drivers and passengers will communicate on best times to leave and come back.
If there's more than enough interest on the forums, then we can create a Facebook Page (as I've seen previously before) for carpooling.

Next Staff Mtg: March 10th. All Staff Meeting dates are listed on another thread, thanks!

For example! Please correct me if I am wronggg.

Gaming / Ragnarok Online! EPIC
« on: March 22, 2010, 10:24:36 AM »
Hey All  ;D

Just wanted to know who still plays Ragnarok Online (RO) here! I play on Rebirth RO (private server) so if you want to play with me, just reply!

Or just reply if you play another server that you think is great! RO is a good hangout/chill game and here's a link for people who don't know what it is: http://ratemyserver.net/ and http://iro.ragnarokonline.com/

There are two types of servers: public (pay 2 play) and private

Rebirth RO is private so it's more limited than the public server!

Staff & Volunteers / Inquiry about Maid Cafe
« on: February 17, 2008, 11:55:23 PM »
Hi All,

I just wanted to simply ask if there has been any updates regarding Maid Cafe OR if there is an official thread about it. I just want to know the requirements of being able to volunteer as a Maid and if there were any announcements about it.

Anyone who has volunteered before, please tell us about your experiences!!! And how you went about being a Maid. I am interested to read how people fared from last year.


So, please keep this topic, simple and clean-- NO Hostile Debate/Argument, or I will report you IMMEDIATELY! I read the last topic regarding Maid Cafe and one simple question turned into a heated debate that was locked by an Admin. Please keep this thread friendly so people can come and read it. Be considerate and respectful!  :) Thank you all!
