There are many issues that we would run into. Agencies update security and identification measures and that is why they have expiration dates. If we took an ID 2 years expired, we would also be obligated to take an ID expired in 1973. Your biological indicators listed on the ID could change over that time period also.

I can go on and on about reasons why we have these policies but in the end these are the rules set by Fanime and we need to hold to them. If you have better solutions, please join our staff and help us make the reg process better. That way you also may better understand the process that our staffers go through to register a member and maybe shed some light on the reasons we do the things we do.

We strive to identify and implement change that will make Fanime better, but these changes must be reasonable and extensively reviewed before we can implement them. Our process comes from years of experience and we hope that the combination of this experience and new ideas will lead to a more efficient and streamlined registration.

Barcodes are one option we are looking at, but as with any new technology, it takes time to implement. This year, its a grand spanking new reg system.....barcodes maybe in the future we will see.


Pockystix had a good idea in another thread.

Barcodes.

Print them up and bring them in, fanime staff scans them and you're good to go.

Small addendum:

We WILL check your IDs at the Yaoi and Hentai rooms......but having the correct age on the member account will help in emergency situations and liability issues.

There are other aspects that we can use to identify you, but if you are under 19, you should change it.

Feel free to contact us if you want it changed.

use your age come con. We will use that and the other information to confirm your identity against your government issued ID....not school, no age on there, and no countermeasures against counter fitting... :)

you can usually pre reg for the next year's con at the end of con, stay tuned, esp during con. It's a lot cheaper too! (ooh i used "con" 3 times...oh 4 now)

You can log in here: http://www.fanime.com/registration/account/account.php


the #1 exists, but you gotta know the right password at the right speakeasy, at the right time, and talk to the right person....you need to be 21+ too cuz its a speakeasy!!!

no, #1 exists and it belongs to a real person

The great thing about state issued IDs is that there is a consistent and reliable way to confirm your age and identity. Without this accurate information in the first place we would be legally remiss such that we cannot identify the involved parties to pertinent parties and/or law enforcement, if required.

IDs for minors are a fickle problem and we are attempting to internally identify a feasible solution that will be a compromise between the amount of exposure we are willing to have and the convenience of our members. Unfortunately this is a decision that is out of the hands of the members and even Registration. We understand your concerns and the repercussions of these policies and we will convey that in our discussions towards a resolution.

In the end, we may need to brave a little inconvenience for the benefit of the con. Lest something unfortunate happens AND the legal protection absent, the legal recourse (and conceivable fallout) could possibly be fatal to the con.

Please be understanding of our position and also understand that we are actively internally discussing these issues also. We welcome suggestions, but arguing about our established policies will only serve to incense emotions.

Thanks

What is key to a gov't issued ID is that the date of birth will be on the ID. This is key to identifying your age and limiting our liability (legal scary stuff).

Please bring gov't issed PHOTO ID so that we may confirm your age as well as the fact that the ID belongs to you.

I know some of you are checking your online accounts to see that your payment has been received by Fanime. You have also noted that a payment confirmation e-mail was not sent out. Please bear with us for a little longer and we will have a solution soon. Thanks!

Edit (12/13/07): In time you will be able to print out a confirmation reciept. We will keep you updated. Thanks!
