Title: WANTED: Rovers for Fanime08
Post by: deonchan on November 24, 2007, 10:42:31 PM
The Rovers (or artists formally known as Rovers) dept are looking for staff members for the 2008 convention! The rovers staff is a great way to see lots of the the con area and an awesome way to meet new friends and like minded folks. If you care about the ongoings of the convention and are interested, please email rovers@fanime.com for more info!

Personally, I prefer Rovers...

Anything else just doesn't have the right 'ring' to it.

Newb Question Alert!

So I never bothered looking into what goes on in the background of Fanime (or any con), so what does a Rover do exactly? Heh.  ??? I'm looking to work staff '08 and not sure where to look, so asking questions seems to be the best start.

The group is responsible for

    line control - make sure lines flow, not congested, not blocking walkways, exits, etc
    crowd control - make sure crowds do not get rowdy, don't block things, etc
    access control - ID check for the 18+ rooms, authorized personnel
                          for certain things (to be defined later)
    general physical safety - no running; no glomping; no blocking doors,
                                      stairs, fire extinguisher, fire alarms; etc
    escort duties - escort staff, attendees, or GoH as needed (requested)
    patrol dealer's hall - walk the dealer's hall, a presence helps to deter shoplifting;
                               keep traffic flowing
    policy compliance - weapons policy, etc
    assisting with emergencies - verifying emergency, calling it in, control crowd
    harassment complaints
    missing persons
    lost and found - new for '08

One thing to note on emergencies, we do not provide any emergency services.  We verify, call it in, control the crowd, and wait for emergency services - Police, Fire, EMS.

My email didn't get sent to the address it came back, nya....

If any of you are trying to get in touch with the department head for volunteer opportunities and can't get through on e-mail, PM me your contact info and I'll go ahead and forward it myself.  The more people we have to help out the smoother things go since, as the old department name suggests, we really need a lot of bodies out there roving about.

So don't let a bounced e-mail discourage you!

Many thanks for clarification. I'll definitely think about it. I'm not sure where I would fit best so I'm still scouting what's out there.

I'ev thought it over and I think this is the year I start volunteering (always knew i'd end up doing it), so i'll try sending another email in case I messed it up somehow and if that doesn't work i'll PM you the info.

Second time's the charm, my email got sent and i've already received a reply. I don't know why in the world it didn't go through the first time, but it's safe to say that the address is fine. If you have trouble with it just send it once more.

Post by: deonchan on December 06, 2007, 02:51:46 PM
If you have trouble with rovers@fanime.com, please try safety@fanime.com

One of those should go through and you'll get a reply ASAP. Thanks!  ;D

Post by: RanyouSaotome on December 14, 2007, 05:30:35 PM
Well I am throwing my two cents in... I figure the rovers are kind of like the ones making sure all goes well. Would even be a good bet to call them Guardians. Always out there always looking out for trouble or of any in need. ^.^
    Also got a message from Daniel that he was gonna get me in touch with someone who was a department head cause Yes like alot of us that want to give back to Fanime I wanna be a rover as well. [ Yes I am crazy so why not hehe]
   Course have not heard anything and I even went as far as sending e-mail to both addys from an entirely different computer. O.O Soooooo can be reached at Ranchangene@yahoo.com  And if I may be so bold Long Live FANIME! HoooYaaaaah!!

At the meeting some people were saying they were getting a lot of spam and started ignoring some emails that didn't have something rover related in the topic. So if no one's contacted you yet and you didn't have anything in the topic try again maybe.

This is Krista, one of the Rovers from last year. I was on the mailing list until somewhere around January and I didn't hear a word about the Feb. meeting that I thought was happening. I've send email to the fanime safety address and never heard back.

Is there another step I can take to make sure I'm informed about the going-ons for prospective saftey staff?
Title: Re: WANTED: Rovers for Fanime08
Post by: deonchan on February 26, 2008, 03:23:04 PM
All the emails that we have received have had a reply sent to them. We are also sending out apps for folks to fill out and return. If you have sent an email to rovers or safety @ fanime in the past 3 weeks and have not gotten a reply, please PM me here and I will make sure you are taken care of.

Hm so I have to admit Im a total newb to the whole con scene, this year will be my first one, but I am considering working staff or volunteer just to get to see everything, including behind the scenes. I was considering being a rover and wanted to know what your guys input is, should I apply or maybe do a different department, or should I just go this year as a visitor just to get the feel before I volunteer/apply?
Title: Re: WANTED: Rovers for Fanime08
Post by: Kazuko on March 14, 2008, 11:36:30 PM
I would suggest since its your first time to just come as a visitor, then think about it for next year

One of the Staff requirements is that you do a minimum of 24 hours throughout the con. That doesn't leave you enough time to enjoy a lot of the con that you would want to when you're on staff. You see a lot more aspects in con life as an attendee that you normally wouldn't see while on staff. But that's from me out of my own experience.

Rovers/Safety-On-Site can be lenient on the rule sometimes since it's mostly centered towards appropriate coverage in all at-con situations and the department has a high demand for staff(not always leaving room for everyone to complete an equally full 24 hours). There's also the SOS Hierarchy to consider since only a select number of Safety staff are authorized to pull badges and have more access to certain areas of the con. Those people with the power may be needed more than others for that reason. IMO, I think that's why the 24 hour minimum rule was established.
Title: Re: WANTED: Rovers for Fanime08
Post by: Steve.Young on March 19, 2008, 01:22:41 AM
Honestly, you see a lot of the con life that you don't see as an attendee as a Rover. I attended for several years before roverdom. Or SOSdom now? Meh!

Can't really explain what it is, you just gotta try it. And work 72 hours (almost consecutively) straight like me =D (I crashed Monday). It's really that fun.
Title: Re: WANTED: Rovers for Fanime08
Post by: Shi_Musouka on March 20, 2008, 12:41:11 PM
lol, I was probably speaking from my own experience while staffing for Stamp Rally and not so much on Safety.

Nonetheless, con life perspectives vary from person-to-person regardless of badge status :3.

The meeting times are set. It'll only be on those days listed in the email @ 6pm. Alot of folks from the east bay (Concord, WC, P Hill, etc) carpool down to the south bay for the meetings. That might be a solution for you. You'll get to the meetings and get to know the folks you'll be working with!

It's win-win ^_^

Well there are some interesting ones.

Some which we won't mention (William, Capt Bob) or go into details.

We have some weird late night early morning 3 a.m. stories about sleepers...and where they sleep.

Old men and their yaoi...yea...a couple of those

Hentai room...Video Room...etc...shenanigans.

No take downs, we aren't really allowed to take down people. We call SJPD for that task. Defending yourself is another thing.

Post by: Shi_Musouka on April 14, 2008, 10:34:54 PM
Speaking of Sauce(SoS), I say we require all SOS staff to carry some kind of Sauce with them while on Duty(in addition to the traditional rover gear). lol jk.

Now if it was La Victoria sauce, that probably wouldn't work because unfortunately, someone whose name begins with an A and ends with an N would probably hoard it for himself/herself for his/her burritos and will not share it(even if someone volunteers to "Yaoi for Yuri") because he/she is selfish like that and will probably get his/her badge pulled because he/she stole Derek's burrito sauce while he wasn't looking.

the Group previously known as Rovers is now the "Sauce of Fanime"

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2484835739

Now with new enhanced flavors!
Chocolate Bear - Melts in your Mouth.
Zog - Awesome Charisma you can taste.
Steve Young - Tonsile hockey? Try Football Tackle.

We will have cookies at the 27th meeting. If not, i'll make a point to bring them. and maybe even cakes - hostess cakes! FTW.

Free back/shoulder rubs from the guy from who's awesome at them.  ;)
Just take a number or get in line, or just walk up to me and point at shoulders.

Clothing is optinional, but then again... when in Rome...
We'll tell you about our Bra Sale joke... just go to the meeting. to find out more.

Rule #1 of Sauce.
We do not talk about where the Sauce comes from.
Trade Secret. Join us to find out more.

Rule #2 of Sauce.
What ever happens at Yaoi-con stays at Yaoi-con.
(unless he follows you home on a leash- Good Boy.)

Rule #3 of Sauce.
We DONT talk about Fight Club.
No Exceptions.

I was actually talking to someone about this last meeting.  I will be bringing loads of bake goods for fanime for us to enjoy.  Yay for baking :D

And when did we become Sauce?  As long as is good Sauce then its all good for me
Title: Re: WANTED: Rovers for Fanime08
Post by: AnimeEmperor on April 15, 2008, 03:29:30 PM
I am already famed for my baked goods, I usually bring them to general meetings when requested. I would gladly bring some sort of baked goodness (cookie or otherwise) to an S.O.S. meeting if someone has a specific request. "Bake cookies!" is not a valid request, I have too many recipes and I would get a headache trying to select one.

Mr. Wendell is fond of my White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies

That's correct. Our current road warrior title goes to a crew member from Placerville >.< (until one of our vets moves to Japan)

We do have a few carpools that happen. I happen to run one of them. And yes all you need is one meeting to be in the clear. I would suggest the one coming up in fact.

Placerville indeed.  ^.^  *points to self*  In case no one knows where the heck that is, its near Lake Tahoe on Highway 50. 

Okay enough of that....  Why is this next meeting so important?  If I can't make it, am I missing out on something super 'uber important?

Just an FYI

There are quite a few people who have not fully signed up on the staff list and are still in the PENDING status. The cut off is coming up in just a few DAYS. If you are in PENDING status at that time you will be DELETED and officially NOT on SOS staff. At that time I will also lock this thread in order to avoid the "I didn't know please add me to your 1337 cul...er... group!"

This is your warning (as many many many emails have been lost in the shuffle)

That is all

I'm happy to say I'm offically on staff. One thing though, Is the only meet time for the meetings 6pm? That's a bit late for me since I'll have to take the bus to BART and BART to Dublin then drive home.

Oh and PS I'm a Girl so my worries are legit.

The meeting times are set. It'll only be on those days listed in the email @ 6pm. Alot of folks from the east bay (Concord, WC, P Hill, etc) carpool down to the south bay for the meetings. That might be a solution for you. You'll get to the meetings and get to know the folks you'll be working with!

It's win-win ^_^

I'm in Stockton... An hour south of Sacramento by Manteca and Tracy....
That still seems dangerous for me by myself...

Believe it or not, we actually have team members that are FARTHER up north than that.

PM deonchan and maybe he could work something out.

Sooo.... How would I go about getting in on one of these many carpools?
I totally understand I need to go to a meeting just... getting there and back safely is scary.

Uhhh yes you did. In fact I sent you you invite code twice to your @yahoo.com email account. The first time on April 14th, the 2nd time on April 29th. Under the subjects Application and joining the staff. I would go back and check. Perhaps you can still use the invite codes if you I'm sorry you'll have to volunteer this year
