Ideas and Suggestions / Former AMV Winners and Other Classics
« on: June 20, 2006, 08:36:07 PM »
I think it would be great if the con could arrange a screening next year of the winners of prior AMV contests at Fanime.  There's a ton of really incredible vids that have won at the contest, and seeing the little snippits of them at the Finals was so much fun!  Most can be downloaded (if not all) but it's not the same thing as seeing them on the bigscreen.  I know a few venues at the con were playing random vids, including some of the winners, but it'd be cool if we could get a centralized screening.

Hotel and Facilities / Late Check-in penalty?
« on: April 22, 2006, 06:54:05 AM »
Hi.

When I signed up for my reservation, I did not select late check-in, because from the way it was set up, it appeared that if you were going to arrive at 8pm or later, that was the only reason you'd need to select that.  However, I've heard since that you will be charged a penalty if you arrive anytime after 4pm.  Is this correct? And if not, is there any sort of penalty for arriving late, and at what time?

Thanks muchly.

Ideas and Suggestions / Maul Starbucks.. er..
« on: June 19, 2005, 05:04:18 AM »
Okay, I'm not actually suggesting anything like THAT, but if someone official-ish could contact the convention center or the Hilton or the Starbucks itself and basically say - "hey, look, we're having a con with a few thousand people who stay up all night, drink lots of stuff to stay awake and seem to be fond of Starbucks- could you stay open PAST two pm?" that would be GREAT.

Seriously, there's almost nothing as sad as watching about 15 people get literally locked out of a Starbucks while standing in line simply because the 2-o'clock hour has come up.  I thought that was stupid in '04, but I figured since hardly anyone was around that area (the con wasn't on that side just yet, and there weren't a whole lot of people at the Hilton, I guess) that that was why they still closed so early- but there were a huge amount of people around it constantly this year, and they still closed early.  I think if someone in charge of that stand was aware of how much revenue they could make just by staying open to, oh, some half-way sensible hour like FIVE, at the very friggin' least, they'd probably be willing to do it for a mere weekend.  

Hell.  I'll admit it.  One of my biggest motivators for staying at the Hilton instead of the Marriot?  It's steps away from the Starbucks.  But what good is that when the place closes at two? -_-;;;

General Anime Chat / Anti this or that...?
« on: June 29, 2003, 04:02:47 AM »
Just a question for you folks...  

Although I've never been overly fond of it myself, I've realized over the years that there is a great deal of hatred towards the Pokémon series...  Is there any specific reason(s) for this?  The cutsey-ness?  The repetitive episodes?  The fact that it's based on a game?  Perhaps because it threw tons of newbies into the 'underground anime' groups?  It just seems that whenever I go to a con it's the one thing that you better not cosplay as or mention, unless you're bashing it.  

And is there any group hatred towards any other animes?  Cuz if it's just the repetitive-ness, I would think many other shows would fit in that category.  Just tryin' to figure stuff out!  Thanks.
