If you're into waiting in line for pre-reg badge pickup, come on day 0. On day 1, I got my badge in 5 minutes.

I would have to guess that you're supposed to put the gender that appears on your ID. If not, why does Fanime rage so much about having your legal name from your ID appear on your badge?

If my memory serves me, however, the reg number and what goes on your badge doesn't necessarily agree. :)

Some years they do, other years they don't
Just looking at the invoice number. Seems like it should be sequential. My badge number is in the 12000's.

Woohoo! I guess I'm satisfied with a number that's under 50. =]

I'm good at basic programming but nothing I'm sure they're actually working on (C# maybe or sql?)... :/ maybe someday?
I think the registration uses Ruby. Maybe the whole site does too, but not sure.

So barring any speed bumps, we are looking at launching sometime next week, but as you can see, we have hit a few speed bumps already.
Hmm, can we possibly get a new update about registration opening up?

For the dances, it is important that we see real names easily when checking badges to get in.  Every year there are countless people that try and use other people's badges for entry.  As the head of the dance it is my responsibility to try and make the dance the safest place it can be with the limited resources I have been given.  Real names on badges is one of these.
You can't possibly be serious. I can understand if a (obvious) guy uses a badge with a (obvious) girl's name on it. This method is worth nothing if a guy uses another guy's badge (and vice-versa) and if the name on the badge is an uncommon/non-English name, like Jong-Il Kim.

But seriously, are you guys trying to treat badges like legal identifications documents or something? I'm still trying to figure out what "there are a number more [reasons] that I will not go into" means; are we supposed to join staff and figure out who to question in order to find out?

Must be major difficulties going on. Last year, it was up in early November. Now, it already mid-December. I just wish I knew the date so I don't have to keep checking.

It looks like someone decided to put "COMING SOON" on the links, which is good because I would be confused if I never registered for Fanime before.  :)

It looks like the website was updated for Fanime 2012, but registration has yet to open.

The pre-reg from the website takes PayPal, so the short answer is yes. Keep in mind that you'll need a PayPal account though.

Just FYI, my Hilton room with 2 queen beds was roughly $375 for Friday-Monday.

Oops, I did mean "Badges not having the name does more harm than good."
How so? I'm fairly sure that any reason you can come up for this can be quickly ripped apart.
I'm rather curious about this as well. Can anyone elaborate about what kind of harm could be done if they were unnamed as opposed to named? What are the reasons that can be shared? Why can't some reasons be shared? Is there a secret contract about how badges must be?

...I'm gonna assume that it's so people can't pass the one badge around? And if you lose your badge it can be returned to you? And for quick identification of someone if they're causing a problem?

As well as the above, I think of information that differentiates official badges from badges that have been copied/altered/faked. There may be other reasons too, I'm sure.

I'm pretty indifferent to whether the name is on the badge or not...well, I would -prefer- that if we have names, that the name on my ID -not- be as prominent as it is on my badge. I would prefer that the 'big name" be the name that is usually listed as the "fan name", while the personal name is the smaller name, if it shows at all.
People pass badges around, named or unnamed, and I know this as an absolute fact. The regular (non-pre-reg) badges can be easily copied/faked at Kinkos (or wherever), unless you guys add an expensive-to-duplicate feature to it. Because of this, it's no good for using to identify people. And if the badge is authentic, you still can't tell if the badge-carrier is the badge-owner without another for of identification.

I will say that it's good for people who lose badges, because I know Fanime tries to find the badge's owner. That being said, it means less revenue, and possible reduction in whiny kids who can't/won't pay for replacing a lost badge.

The biggest "harm" about having people's real names on badges is that most medium- and high-profile cosplayers DO NOT WANT THEIR REAL IDENTITY REVEALED. As a result, they don't ever have their badge showing (or don't pay for one at all). This group is a minority, but is the highlight of Fanime (IMO).

There are all these hypotheses about why Fanime badges have real names, but can someone (maybe staff person) state the real reason? Or at least say why this is a secret? Or state that there really isn't a reason and real names on badges aren't an absolute must?

I also prefer badges with names as opposed to badges without names and a wristband. Wristbands are uncomfortable, unsightly in photos, and cannot be worn with certain costumes.
I agree. And for this reason, I don't pay SacAnime to screw up my cosplay(s).

Any update about when this will happen? Refreshing the page every 10 minutes gets tiring. =P

Registration / Fanime date on hotel page
« on: January 15, 2011, 12:20:50 AM »
So is it May 27-30 or 28-31? I'm guessing it's going to be what it always was: Friday to Monday, but just want to make sure I booked my hotel for the right days. See the inconsistencies below?

I'll definitely be there cosplaying Mayuri Kurotsuchi, probably with several other Bleach characters in tow.  Urahara will definitely be there with me; that guy follows me everywhere... *quickly hides research notes inside of Nemu*
OMG, awesome! We have to cosplay together or something! I cosplay Ishida Uryuu a lot!!!!

Hmm, a mobile site sounds good because it'd be compatible with everything. But I don't think you can do anything GPS related. =/
