Quote from: BenihimeSama on June 02, 2010, 12:09:26 AMWhat the Heck is Touhou?---We are very happy with the turnout for both that panel, and it's companion panel, "Touhou Hijack". And most of the staff learned something new about the game as well. We'll definitely be looking forward to seeing them again in the future!

Well, I will like to say, as the presenter of the Hijack Panel, that I thank your kind words. Though, I think that generally a lot of people seem to have preferred a panel with less emphasis on memes and more on solid content. I feel like I almost put too many videos in, in comparison to content. I was hoping people had any feedback to give based on that.
I'll be by, but I don't think I have a costume ready this year. So I'll just watch on with love~

Hey guys, I'll be presenting the second Touhou panel at the con.

My title is misleading, so I thought I'd talk about what I'll talk about ahead of time.

I wrote a thesis on Touhou. It's 60 something pages. So, the hijack is more a hijack of academia (Touhou took over almost everything else, why not this).

But it'll be fun. It won't be dry, I promise. I'll be talking about classical Japanese culture, and I'll be talking about how Touhou connects into it.

Hey Ewen, I'll just be saying that I'm up for a game of Maid RPG. I wanted to try it once or so. ^_^
I'll be doing Mio with Mirai ^_^

I think the Marriot overbooked the twin rooms actually. My friends and I had two rooms, and both of us got King beds. Did anyone else get the same treatment and have to ask the hotel to transfer you to a double?
As I told my friend as I walked down the stairs to check out of the hotel.

QuotePeople who design hotels should seriously play Sim Tower. Then they would know that you should place Escalators to service the first 7 floors and an elevator for the rest.

elevators were pretty bad when you're checking out at floor 7 down. I was on the 9th. Just barely fit most of the time

Hey Jun, it's teh Reimu with no balls.

After meeting with you on Saturday, I also went back with friends to have a snack at the cafe. We all enjoyed ourselves there. Food prices were, again, a bit on the steep side; if there's anything that needs improvement, you guys really need to plan what's being offered in terms of food and lower prices. Even if it costs variety, I'd prefer to sit and have cheap and reasonable food with good service.

I commend the 2.25 sodas. Cheapest sodas in the con by far. Not enough to make the price palatable still. I realize it's more work, but looking into lowering prices should definitely create a draw.

As for maid service, indeed, a vast improvement. Most of the pro-points you all told me or have listed here, so I don't have to go into it.

I do feel though that ordering system needs to be improved. Lining up, ordering food, then sitting down at a table proved to confuse some of the people in my group. I'll admit that some of the people in my group were.... a bit retarded... but to people who don't know what maid cafes are, there are some terrible potential slip-ups. In the case of ordering food, the staff working at the reg sometimes gave us the food or drink before we even sat down, sort of defeating the purpose of having maids serve us. Then, we had one of my party members walk off trying to get his own seat with his food. I think an improvement to this structure would be taking orders after people are sat down. Of course, this may get a bit more messier when you're handling the bill at the end.

In any case, you guys did good this year. I'll be writing my article with fairly high marks and I'll forward you guys a copy when I'm done.
Oh hey, hah, I didn't expect my comment to randomly show up on here. But yeah, I seriously had fun, even with epic fail. I hope you guys bring back the panel again next year. If planning specific stuff is hard, don't forget that anon is legion, we can always entertain ourselves just as well given the right fuel of snide remarks on our mothers and racist epithets. Wasn't the panel 2 years ago basically a series of questions being asked by people and you guys laying the smack down on their need to lurk moar? I had plenty fun with that as well.

Registration / Press passes

Hey, I know you guys say to wait, but I wanted to inquire about press passes.

I'd like to have all the info I need to submit so that I can get my editors to ok the trip down there. Will it be much like that of this years? Name, Company, distribution numbers?

Also, what other extras would I be able to get in on?

Thanks a lot for your time.
