Pro: Pre-registration for Swap Meet Friday!  
Exhibit Hall was very nice
Host Hotel Hilton was superb

Sign Ban... not enforced.  Solicitation is still illegal, right?  Even more disturbing if they look underage x_X
I'm not into people pouncing each other in public spaces (even if both players are into it).... do it at Mascarade or at a panel so not one else gets hurt and you're not making a spectacle and crowding up a walkway
Cosplay Gatherings... same location, 4 different versions of the name on the schedule makes for lost photographer ;_;  
People manning doors needs to know the hours for the room (exhibit hall, for example)
Artist Colony table pre-registration was a mess

Live Programming and Events / Artist Colony Table Assignments
« on: June 01, 2007, 12:11:00 AM »
I had a question/complaint for table assignments.  I got the e-mail for the table assignment on April 30, 2007, and I sent in my choice for tables not seven hours after that e-mail went out (three were requested, but I sent in SIX table choices just in case my choices already got picked.).  Later in the morning on May 1st I got a confirmation e-mail indicating my first choice was confirmed.  All is well.

I got to the convention on Friday at 10am and was turned away at the door since I did not have my seller's permit *in my hand* (even though did say that I sent in a copy and I would have a copy in my hand and at the table when I started selling when the room opened since I only came down to claim the table.)  I came back not 15 minutes later (and now told I sent in everything and was not asked to produce the seller's permit which I made a return trip to my room to obtain) only to find my table had been assigned to another artist and I was simply assigned the next table (which was not included in any of my six choices).  

The only explaination I got was that there were many duplicate requests.  I know the AC staff were very busy at the convention, but since this is after the con, and maybe you've had a chance to hash out what happened, I would appreciate a more detailed explaination as to what happened to my confirmation wayyy back in May 1st.  If in fact I was somehow bumped from my spot pre-con due to a duplicate request, I would like to know why I was not notified of this before hand.  

The entire process has been difficult between the strangely worded contract, and the delay in response from the convention staff with respect to the Artist Colony.  The staff members were all very nice (the ones I met at the convention) and no one has been rude, but I just would like to know the reasons why all this happened.  I thought I did all the right things to secure my choice but it just didn't happen.  Please don't just tell me that there were duplicate requests.  Could you at least tell me 1) when I got bumped and 2) why I was not notified?

Hotel and Facilities / Your Hotel Stay, Good or Bad?- 2007 Version
« on: May 31, 2007, 11:41:59 PM »
Stayed at the Hilton, 6th floor.  

Overall the stay was very good.  We checked in an hour early.  

One downside is that the stairs were marked emergency exit only so we were confused as to whether or not we could walk until we started hearing other people hoofing it up the stairs.  

For some crazy reason I got charged for 80 dollars for valet parking (for two cars) on the second and third night, but I was able to clear that up after I showed them the bill (where the first night was self-parking for a single car) and showed them my in and out pass and my car keys.  Otherwise, I would've had fun tracking down "my cars" and retrieving "my keys".  The gentleman at the counter fixed that up right away, and we paid for the bill the night before so we didn't even have to get in line to check out on Monday :3  

The staff at the cafe in the hotel was also very nice.  Too bad they didn't advertise the breakfast buffet more (like... a sign, maybe?) and I bought two regular breakfasts before I found out about it.  x_x

General Convention Discussion / Schedules: stapled or not?
« on: May 22, 2007, 12:58:57 AM »
Ideally the full one is available at registration (for plotting on day 0 and the like) but I would feel less bad when I lose one piece of paper a day instead of 4 per day and can pick up just one sheet when I misplace it.  

I don't particularly care if they're stapled or not.

Uh... you managed to confuse me with this question?

Basically, 1 space costs $20 and you can share your space with one other person. There will technically be no "half" spaces per se. You would never have 3 people in one space, only 2.  I'm not sure how I can be clearer than that ^_^;;

Aoh, okay.  We'll have person number three in our group hang out in front of our booth on Friday, then ^_^;;;;  Can she at least come in together me and person number two to help us set up before the swap meet opens?  I can always just buy two spaces on Thursday to get her in the door with us, but it's kind of a shame for someone who actually needs the floor space to sell.  

Last year they sold half spaces so I thought maybe the 2 limit was for that.  Sorry if I complicated the question ^_^;;;;

Are the spaces about the same as last year?  Is it two sellers per space, two per purchase of either a half of full space, or two human beings occupying a space period?  

I signedup for one space for Friday since two spaces would be too much for us (and we didn't want to be a space hog), but we have three people in our group, two of which actually have things to sell on Friday so it's not that we'll have too much stuff.  Space wise, last year I split a spot on Friday and the two girls next to me had a half space... so there were three of us in one full space and we managed okay.  Please clarify.

Last year I remember checking in before noon, but you did NOT have to check in daily as the table is already reserved just for you.

And yes, PLEASE send me the contract.  I would very much appreciate that.  

Thank You!

I sent you a copy at the e-mail you have listed at this board.  Thanks for the info!

My check got cashed and I got a seating assignment via e-mail on 4/30.  It seems like they're processing in waves, but they're doing something.  

O_o anyone else without the contract, let me know and I'll forward you one.  If you're hanging on for the seating chart... I can't help you there except tell you "hang in there, kupo!"

Incidentally... we have to check in every day?  Or just show up at our table everyday by 12?  If we have to check in every day, I hope the lines won't be terrible... Anyone do this last year know if we need to do daily check-ins?

And also: When is the check in deadline on Friday?

Could I have the contract?

I want to sell edible cookies with drawings on them at fanime. I don't know if this is allowed. I will get my kitchen certified by a health inspector and get a permit.

We're going to be in a convention center, so catering is exclusive to Aramark.  You will probably not be able to sell any foods unless it is considered "novelty" items like Japanese prize candy boxes or Ramune... my guess is that you'd be busted just the same.

My check hasn't been cashed either.  And I still haven't gotten the seating chart. O_o

mmn.. i'm starting to feel a bit impatient now seeing as how my question isn't being answered. n_n;

As for me I just put in "10" for the dollar amount one (since that's what I'm paying for a table, it seems fair.)   They really didn't have a suggestion... *shrug*

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE CONTRACT. Is it real, invisible, in Japanese, or do the rest of us not know the secret hand shake? I waited for months for a link to the colony to be posted on the main website just to find it by accident in the forum. And now we have the mystery contract that nobody seems to have, save one poster I saw in the forum link, and we can't proceed with our table reservations or registration without it. Hold on let me go back a second. O.K. I'm back. Let's see here, Aya Brea has the contract, so if you could just scan it and send it out we can fix this problem on our own. In fact you can send it to me or anybody that you know in the colony and we can just chain mail it to whoever doesn't have it. More than likely they have one poor soul who is expected to answer all of our emails and do 200 other things at the same time. If we can help distribute the proper paper work we all need than let us help you, Fanime Staff, get it done. Sorry, didn't mean to prattle on, but we only have 3 days left to meet the cons deadline and I find it hard to concentrate on drawing when stuff like this is hanging. I don't want to see this turn into a peanut cluster like San Diego Comic Con has become. Let it be known that I am not trying to single anybody out or step on toes. I just want to see all the attending artist get their stuff done so the staff workers can get their stuff done, that's all. In short, if we can help let us know. I do have blank contracts from San Diego and Wonder Con that I can modify for this show if that would work. Just a thought.

The contract's not done, and it's the things that are wrong with it are beyond just fixing on our end (it's not just touch up work).  Among the extra things we're supposed to do with this version of the contract is come up with some kind of invoice, upload it to the fanime site (I'm guessing they mean themselves...), and wait for Fanime to approve it... It's not even a simple task of swapping the parties, there's so many things wrong with it there's not way it's enforcable.  

Show of hands anyone who actually sent in that contract?   Who else actually *got* it, in fact?  

I don't want to send it around a contract so fully flawed.  They're going to fix it and extend the deadline.  The deadline coming up is for seat selection, and the seating chart is NOT ready according to them.  The actual deadline to sign up is April... I kind of wish someone WOULD let us know when the fixed contract would come out.  

I'm waiting for a fixed contract, everyone else should, too.

I got an e-mail response with the contract, but as I pointed out above, there seems to be a problem with the text.  It's not the 22nd.... panic time?

Live Programming and Events / So I'm reading the Contract
« on: March 17, 2007, 07:22:57 PM »
Is this a draft contract? ...  It has "need an address" for the Anime Resources Group.  Also, in 2.1 it reads

"Payment for services of the artist to the client.  The Artist will be paid as follow:"


We're getting paid?  If this is a draft, let me know so I don't send it in ^_^;;;;

Also 2.2

"Invoice for said Tabe Space will be made to FanimeCon 2007, P.O. Box 8068, San Jose, Ca. 95155 with a printed invoice obtained from the FanimeCon web site.."

What invoice?  I need to send an invoice with my table order?... if I'm paying you guys, shouldn't it be the other way around?... I'm very confused.  *_*  If I do need to fill it out, where can I find this?  Unless I really AM getting paid instead?...

I also have questions on the blanks on the second page, paragraph 5... what should I put in the blank?  

I've only read two pages... obviously this is not finished.

Will there be a deadline extension?  Since the table chart and the contract is not done?... and it's the 17th already?  Thanks!

since the PM responses are slow here were my last few questions.

who do i put down as organizer/promoter of event? just FanimeCon?
and what do i put down for the event/promotor's phone#?
what does "Admissions Charged" mean?

This is what I put down.  By no means can I say it's right.  All I can say is that they sent me that permit in 10 days with no problems.

I put down Fanime Con as the promoter of the event.
I left the phone number blank as I could not locate one.
I put down "Yes" for admissions charged since Fanime charges for admission into their event (and, consequently, into A.C.)

EDIT: Okay, I got the e-mail with the contract.  I see section 3.1 indicates no subletting is allowed.  If there will be different artists working at the same table, does every artist need to sign one?  If so, would you consider finalizing the order with a single contract and collecting the rest of the contracts once at the convention or we finalize the other people at our table?

Okay, I got the Temporary Seller's permit, but I have not gotten a response with the contract or the seating chart so I can't send out my check or a copy of the permit to secure my space...   The deadline to select a seating space is the 31st... is that already going around?
