Panels and Workshops / Re: Virtual Panels?
« on: April 12, 2021, 12:57:03 AM »
Yeah, if I had plans to do a panel with friends this year, we likely would not be doing a virtual one.

That being said, I look forward to when we can have in person panels again!

Yeahhh other conventions at least stated if they were just waiting to see how things played out. That's better than no word at all.

Yeah, the pandemic lasting this long wasn't what we expected. We had hoped that we would be able to return to Fanime this year.

It's been hard on all of us, mentally and financially. As long as Virtual Fanime is decent, and knowing that Fanime 2022 is likely, letting my badge roll over again is a decision I'm willing to make at this point.

(But deleting threads regarding ideas for Fanime 2021 and stuff like that was not a wise decision on their part. In all honesty that was kinda rude.....)

Personally I've decided to let my badge roll over, but I just like that there's the option to refund in the case someone cannot make it to Fanime 2022.

That was before Fanime 2021 went down the drain. Someone mentioned on Discord that you can email them now requesting one.

Well, there's always the option to email them and explain how other people BESIDES THEM are hurting for money. :/

Same, I didn't mind the deferring to this year, however, two years in a row of no convention and no badge refund is.... bad. Really bad.

Yeah, I made a thread suggesting the con get moved to later in the year if it's safe because then they could keep their promise of a 2021 con and not have those who pre-registered upset at them for holding their money.

Fanime, you can delete our threads all you want, I will still demand a refund if there is absolutely no 2021 con.

I agree. I'd like my $85 back, Fanime. :/ Especially if there is no 2021 con(which, let's face it, there likely won't be).

This year would've been my 10th anniversary at Fanime, so next year I'll be celebrating that.

Gonna make it really count! :D

Yeahhhh he is bad news.

Hopefully he doesn't show up to next year's Fanime. :/ Or any other convention.

We will see what next year brings, but for now I'm planning either Sheeta or Satsuki at this point.

Gotta represent Ghibli 8) I miss that person who had the giant robot cosplay from Castle in the Sky! :(

Yeah I would love to have an option to get a refund. Has anyone tried to see if that's possible?

This sounds familiar to some 18+ panels I've seen hosted at FanimeCon in the past. You can submit as a normal panel (next year) and see if it gets accepted. You might be put in touch with Silver Island as they'll be looking for content, but that's still TBD due to Silver Island still being in the early years.

Yeah for the past couple years or so I've been part of an 18+ panel. We weren't put in Silver Island but we were put in a late night time slot on Sunday. :(

Sad that we won't be having Fanime this year, the wait's gonna be long but we'll make it!

Looks like the convention has been cancelled for this year. Which was to be expected.

I also think it should be postponed or cancelled. It's way too risky to still have the convention since it's in May and it's still dangerous to go out.

I know Fanime can't cancel right now cause they will lose too much money if they do right now, thus they might not be able to come back next year, so I'm sure they are just waiting til they have to.

They issued another statement:

It seems they are going ahead with the convention unless they are forced to cancel.

Just talking out loud - but to me what this alludes to is that if by May we're still under shelter-in-place restrictions in California or Santa Clara County the convention would be postponed until Memorial Day Weekend 2021.  There have been many other events in the Bay Area that have done this, deferring to 2021 a couple weeks before the event date due to shelter-in-place.  The most recent I can think of is Bay to Breakers.

I mean there is always this tiny chance that by the end of May the restrictions will be lifted, and the I suppose it comes to individual attendee preference.  At this point I doubt that will happen however.
I'm betting they will have to cancel but for now they don't want to risk cancelling and going bankrupt so they're waiting it out.

Hoping for the best and that Fanime doesn't get cancelled. But if it does, there's nothing we can really do.

Just gonna plan ahead regardless. :)

Any idea on when this gathering will be?
