And if there were a way to abuse the system, usually it's not something that people flash around everywhere because then the loophole would be closed because it would be brought to the attention of those in charge.
Well then that is just why there was no harm in the previous poster's suggestion because it has brought the subject to the present attention of the Fanime staff who will now be better prepared to handle any attempted fraudulent claims. They know now to closely monitor all of the chargebacks being made which makes attempting to "pull one over" on the convention next-to-impossible to pull off.

Because, like you said, if it was brought to staff attention they would seek to stamp it out before it became an issue. Which they are currently doing.

In summary, everyone in this thread agrees that it would be a very foolish and time-consuming error to try and attempt this suggestion as a "loophole".   :)

Oh I agree that it's a good thing that the risk is being assessed. I just think that the Fanime staff have much better things to be doing with their time than sifting through every single charge back that they could possibly be faced with just to dispute it and fix it. So I really hope that it won't be an issue they have to spend time dealing with!

Yep, I think we're in agreement with it being a poor choice to reverse charges in certain situations. :)
That time could be better spent getting the website up, and revealing some semblance of a schedule.

If you do sue them, be sure to do it in small claims court, and use a public lawyer.
Same S*** different day...

Fanime's website woes have always been like this.  Hell, for the past couple years, they've waited until a week before con before posting the schedule.  I imagine that it'll be like that again this year.
Live Programming and Events / Pokemon VG Tournament 2014

I had a question regarding the format for this year.

I assume we'll be using XY as the game of choice, but which rules are we following, and which type of format are we doing?

Smogon-rules, VGC, Singles, Doubles, etc...
Going as Yusuke from Yu Yu Hakusho.  I'll remember what day it is on this time, I swear.  xP
At least you get free admission included with your Fanime ticket.  I agree that it feels like Fanime is a ghost of its former self, I still enjoy it.  I suppose that by them running two cons, there's a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy.

Could you resend mine?  Wouldn't hurt to be extra safe. 
Couldn't you post an online schedule confirming time slots of what you do know, then fill in the blanks as they come up?  At least that way, we'd have somewhat of an idea.
I will be attending as Mystic Gohan from Dragon Ball Z.

How much is it per ride?
Bodega Bay here.  Really excited for this year.  I didn't get to go last year when littlekuribo went.  >.<
