Registration / What does Fanime do with badges not picked up?
« on: April 21, 2007, 11:25:12 AM »
What does Fanime do with all of the badges that weren't picked up for the con? I think there were some pre-reg badges not picked up or something the past few years.

Ideas and Suggestions / The Turnabout of Fanimecon 2007
« on: March 26, 2007, 08:01:25 PM »
If theres any drama or dispute going on with, well, anyone, maybe we have a mock trial as a panel. Complete with a Phoenix Wright, Edgeworth, judge, and of course:

Panels and Workshops / Great Teacher Largo...?
« on: March 07, 2007, 02:13:53 PM »
I remember that GTL was on the schedule last year, but didn't happen (I tried to call him but didn't answer or anything). Any idea if there's gonna be one this year?
-> contact "Blues" on the boards

Gaming / Fanime rec room
« on: February 12, 2007, 07:11:13 PM »
How about this for an idea? A game room for not just video games, arcade games, or tabletop games, but for parlor/social games!
-pool tables
-table tennis tables
-air hockey tables
-foozball tables
-pinball machines (um...actually an arcade machine...)
-dart board (magnetic, not sharp pointy objects)
-putting greens

(crazy idea?)

General Anime Chat / The "What was that anime?" thread
« on: October 04, 2006, 01:38:16 PM »
Note: this is not a question/answer game thread.

Yesterday I saw something that had a girl singing about bananas and was wondering what that name of the anime was. Lisu, Jyun, Tsubasa, and Sunara might know what I'm talking about. Gonna youtube it when I find out.

Things in the Universe / Fanimarket!
« on: September 16, 2006, 10:15:49 PM »
I was talking with Jyun (my brother) about this idea where there can be like a thread here about buying and selling stuff from each other, like a huge classified/wanted/selling ad for board members. We both thought its a good idea, so I'm starting it now! (May become a sticky if popular)

-List things willing to sell (a.k.a. "get rid of")
-List things wanted that other people may have (most likely in used condition)
-Name your price, negotiate, etc...
-Reply by PMs
-Work out the transaction on own terms (like at a gathering or something)
-When transaction finished, edit your post
-No bootlegs, like any other dealers room

(updated 2/5/08)
-Super Smash Bros. Brawl (<-who doesn't want it?)

-Nothing at this time

Don't know if this idea is going to work, but it worth a shot, right?
EDIT: LOL, thread not as popular as I thought it would be after 2 years.

General Convention Discussion / SJCC's new HD outdoor sign
« on: July 25, 2006, 10:18:12 PM »
Recently, the SJCC replaced their old sign (the neon yellow/black tiles. During FC06, it had a "construction under way" sign) with a new TV screen. According to the Merc, it's an HD screen! It's gonna turn on for the 1st time this weekend for the Grand Prix, showing live track racing feeds.

For sure, Fanime is gonna tap into this technology in some way... :P

Ideas and Suggestions / Signs policy?
« on: June 06, 2006, 12:09:19 PM »
Should there be a sign policy for all con goers? A sign is not a cosplay, unless the character holds a sign in the actual anime (a la Ranma's dad as a panda).

General Convention Discussion / Your best day
« on: May 31, 2006, 09:37:49 PM »
What's your best day of the con, in terms of programming and overall happenings? Amazingly, I liked the Thursday of Fanime, because everyone is well rested and ready. There was also the swap meet and everything (and everyone) was 'fresh'.

Gaming / Quarters
« on: May 23, 2006, 08:50:21 AM »
We'll be using quarters instead of tokens this year, right? You think there will be a shortage of quarters?

General Convention Discussion / ""
« on: May 17, 2006, 02:16:17 PM »
I tried typing "" and see what comes up. It's a webpage of nothing, just a typical spam link page. Any chance of getting this domain for the future?

Dealers Room / Deal or No Deal?
« on: May 01, 2006, 11:16:08 AM »
Is it OK to barter (verbally) some dealers into lowering their advertised prices to get a better deal? Or is this something that can only be done during the Swap Meet?
For example: if there are DVDs I want to by that is advertised/shown as $20 each, can I ask to buy two for $30?

BTW, I just love the real DoND show, as you can tell... ^_^,

Hotel and Facilities / Elevators and escalators
« on: March 04, 2006, 11:03:32 PM »
Why is it that there always seem to have an escalator or elevator failure somewhere during a anime convention? And most of the time, it's the night before the Friday start, too.

General Anime Chat / Megatokyo Jeopardy
« on: February 20, 2006, 09:48:13 PM »
Dominic Nguyen, better known as Shirt Guy Dom from Megatokyo and attends many Bay Area anime cons, will be appearing on Jeopardy! this Tuesday night (2/21). Just putting this out there.

General Convention Discussion / To old-school Fanimecon-ers
« on: February 20, 2006, 09:43:05 PM »
Upon passing by the Santa Clara Convention Center yesterday, I realized that the old home of Fanime, the Westin Hotel, is no more! They changed to the Hyatt Santa Clara. I don't know if it is of any significance for anyone here now, unless FC moves back there.

Hyatt or Westin, it'll always be known as the old home of Fanime, and the place where I first attended an anime convention.

Dealers Room / Idea: 24/4 Convenience Store
« on: December 16, 2005, 07:29:34 PM »
I had an idea (like I always do).

Staying at SJ for 3-4 nights? A lot of people in one room? ONE soap bar? Forgot your toothbrush? Need deodorant? Want a snack at 3 in the morning, but don't want Denny's or a big meal?

Let there be an at-con convenience store! It's like a 7-11, where you could buy non-anime essentials like soap, toothbrush/paste, chips, batteries, towels, medicine, film, Red Bull, deodorant, mouthwash, shampoo etc... Any essential that can be found at a 'real' 7-11 (except beer). It will be open 24 hours a day for every day of the convention (hence 24/4) on the convention center floor (not the dealers room, cuz it closes).

Meh....go ahead and steal this idea. I'll buy from you anyway.

Ideas and Suggestions / Your ideas here
« on: July 07, 2005, 11:58:04 PM »
(My) Ideas for events/panels/etc...

-Open stage
Since there are a lot of performers out there (music, cosplay, acting, and others) and Der Cosplay and MusicFest may be too big of a stage for their performance, let's make 1 or 2 small stages out in the open that's available anytime for on-stage performances. There can be signups to 'rent' the stage for a specific time and show.

-Fanime Safari
If FanimeCon is your first time at a convention, you will be overwhelmed when you enter. How about having a tour of the con? A group of around 10 would follow a 'tour guide' around the facility and teach them the ways of a con (the tour starts every hour  :lol: ). To make sure the tourists don't escape into the wild, there would be free gifts at the end of the tour.

-Fanime Public Radio
(I kinda said something about this during 2004's Nami Tamaki music loops over the PA system, but I seems like there's no need for this now. But anyways...)
If you want to request a song, give a shout out to, leave messages, announce your arrival, etc... you can have limited access to the convention center's PA system, just like a radio station. There might also be contests and prizes for those that listen. (It's also a better way to get attention if there are changes to the schedule or room assignments)

I have more, but I can't really put them into words yet.

Gaming / No-Limit FanimeCon Hold-Em Poker
« on: April 27, 2005, 02:05:05 PM »
I don't encourage gambling, but maybe we can hold a (cosplay) poker tournament with play chips. You can redeem those chips for prizes. We could play with chips for no reason, but as me and my brother (Jyunishinsho) says, it's more fun when there's something on the line.
