Title: Thursday night badge pick-up
Post by: Mordyan on April 02, 2006, 06:43:39 PM
Are you guys doing the early badge pick-up on thursday again? I looked on the website but didn't see any info about it.

On a similar note, are there going to be any Thursday night event(s) for the pre-reg crowd like last year?

The answer from the pre-reg guru is "yes"..

Pre-reg events, oh yes. They'll be... "interesting" this year ;)

But to pick up your badge... don't you need your receipt? If so, how do you get it? I've tried looked at my account for some info, but no such luck.
Sorry, this is my first time dealing with the pre-registration ^^;

I believe you're supposed to print out a confirmation page? If not then a copy of your account page? Your photo ID works too, I think.

Gah, I heard all this stuff in passing since I hang out with reg staff. It'd be better if said elusive staff can confirm that *hint hink, poke*

Yeah, I totally forgot if i need any of either @_@; (Well, I know I need my Photo ID, but I forgot if I need to bring that confirmation page or not... blah!)

Almighty staff! Help? :O

In a few weeks, we'll have information on badge pick-up on your account's page.


He posted that in another thread (http://www.fanime.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=4524) on April 5th.

Ah, that makes more sense. Thanks for all the help ^_^ *gives everyone a cookie*
But what if our ID has out official name, and we used but a nickname on the site? Will that create any major problems? Its only the first name...

so let me get this straight, my friend is going to register in a week, does that mean he can't come to fanime on thursday?

Post by: Akito Starwind on April 18, 2006, 09:42:24 PM
i belive thats right. If your friend is not Pre reg then he can come with you just he wont beable to pick up his badge like you can. if you Pre reg'd. Only those Pre-reg'd can pick up on thrsday. Unless Policy has changed for this year.

Well... there's not much that goes on on Thursday, at least not last year.  My friend hadn't pre-regged last year, but it wasn't a big deal.  I wasn't interested in the dance they were having, and that was pretty much all there was.  And we just wandered around the con center to get a feel for it and weren't accosted.  There weren't any real events or shows or anything on Thursday last year.

From what I understand there's a Dance, a few viewing rooms are going to be open from 5-10 PM and there was one more thing but I don't know what exactly it is. So yeah.

But I know that there are some things going on Thursday night.

At least one of the arcades was open, I remember that.  There were two last year and I can't remember if the main one (the big one in the center of the con overpass, between the two hotels) was on or not... but the one closer to the Hilton definitely was.


Cool, viewing rooms open on Thursday is a serious bonus.

Apparently my pre-reg didn't go through... :evil:

I had plans to arrive on thursday night, is that possible with early reg?

Please tell me I'll be able to have fun thursday and won't be sitting in my hotel room, waiting to get my badge on friday?

well they do say you can get your badge early, just, not..how early you know. Whether you can skip the lines friday or can pick it up thursday. I'm not sure but Thursday is technically 'pre=reg' night isn't it? so 'pre-reg' is int he name...yaa...I don't know but logic says no T_T

  Unless you can "convince" people to let you in. (Which, of course, would be easy for you.) Thursday night's events are pretty much pre-reg only. Shame.

   But hey! You've got a hotel room Thursday night! I'm sure there are plenty of things to do, and I'm sure you'll have dozens of friends there, Meli... *I'll* entertain you, if no one else comes to your rescue. (We could go grab sushi to kick off the weekend's celebration. Or rebel and have Italian food.)

  Anyway.

  The usual set up: the Dance, Swap Meet, some screening rooms.

  Previous posters: You guys forgot (or didn't know about?) Swap Meet Thursday night (as has been in the previous two years). That's one of the main reasons I bother with pre-reg... that, and the at-con-reg line. And it saves staff energy. And a happy staff is a good staff.

  However, I've not yet seen Swap Meet sign ups. It could not be happening this year. It would be a shame if it weren't. (There seems to have been many changes made for this year... Tabletop, Wild 94.9, Stage Zero... hmm.)

   However, you do not need a badge to be "at con"; just to attend any of the events/screening rooms/dance/whatever's happening Thursday night. I say: come anyway!

   It's coming soon, people! *cosplay/finals crunch time*

Welcome to FanimeCon Registration! Pre-registration has ended, but Early Registration is offered for those who couldn't make it. You don't get the spiffy badge or the discounts, but with early reg you can at least pick up your badge earlier!

Will Press badges be available for pick-up on Thursday evening as well?  If so, where do you go to pick them up?

You will only be able to pick up press/industry badges on thursday if you did pre-reg. If you didn't, you'll have to wait till the Press Lounge (rooms K/L of the convention center) opens on Friday morning.

A confirmation email should be going out to the last batch of pre-reg by this weekend.

Also, on-site reg location and hours and what not should be up on the press page by the end of the weekend.
