Hotel Changes for FanimeCon 2014

For FanimeCon 2014, we are trying something different in order to make booking a hotel room less of a headache and more fair for our attendees. It is now going to be a requirement for our attendees to have a FanimeCon 2014 membership in order to book a hotel room.

Woah, woah, woah. What?!

So now we're punishing attendees who don't happen to have cash in hand right now from registering from a hotel room? This makes sense to you how?! Hotel rooms sell out fast and not everyone is just sitting on enough cash to pay their badge registration fees right now. You're going to start excluding a HUGE number of your attendees. How is not having your badge suddenly grounds from excluding you from convention planning and hotel registration?

I'm sorry if this isn't exactly a coherent thought. But I've been attending Fanime for over 10 years and I LOVE this con. But this sort of thing feels like I just got sucker punched.

This is why we wanted to get this posted and highlighted as soon as possible. This is no way an attempt to punish *any* of our attendees that are trying to get a hotel room for themselves. This is an unfortunate change to prevent a loophole that some were using to reserve up to a dozen rooms by themselves and then attempting to resell or just cancel the room at the last second, which was causing a bunch of our members to be unable to reserve a room for themselves.

The hotel deposit won't be put onto your account until a month or so before the convention.

I'm not even worried about a deposit. I'm talking about the fact that hotels (especially those that are more desirable) are gone within minutes. And it's a known fact there are not enough hotel rooms for every single one of your attendees. So again, if you don't have $55 right now, or within the next 7 days, expect to be excluded from this benefit, no matter how well you've been trying to pay attention and be proactive about your planning. NEVERMIND the rest of you that are dependent on an AA table confirmation or Swap Meet.

Why can't you just implement the 2 room requirement to combat this problem? Rather than forcing the rest of us to get pushed aside?

Why are you not responding to this quote, some of us don't have money right now to pay for the prereg are going to be screwed over in the hotel. I understand the two room requirement but giving us one week to suddenly shell out 55 dollars is ridiculous. You also didn't bother to respond to this at all and answered everyone else.

Oh.. i have tried a lot of drinks >x> not saying im a booze hound just wanted to see what I liked.. I would most likely just sit there and drink soda or water ^^;

Have you tried a drink called a Dirty Shirley?  It's really just a Shirley Temple (sprite and grenadine) with a little vodka added to the mix.  It tastes just like a yummy cherry soda!  It was the only drink I really liked when I first started drinking, cause it's not very strong ^_^

That doesn't sound too bad, sorry for sounding like a girly girl

........ I dislike alot of bar drinks xD
First time I heard anyone say that.
You don't have to order what everyone drinks, just drink what ever tase good to you. I myself never like a classic martini, or budwiser. But you'll never know which drink combo you'll like if you never try.

This might sound silly and noobish but does anyone know how to put on a wig, everytime I try It always ends up slipping off :/ I try to pin it and I fail x_X

Do you have a wig cap? I have lots of hair and if I don't wear one the wig won't stay on. Other than that I have never had a problem with wig before. Sorry I am not much help...

I have a wig cap.. but I guess I don't own the right one, and every year I try to put the wig on i end up not using it because it ends up slipping in the front or back showing my hair x_X
