If you have ever been to Fanime you probably know the hell that is reserving a hotel. What do you think of their plan?
hate it....the lack of communication up front about it means that people get shafted. an easier procedure would be to limit hotel reg to 1 room per name.....this cuts down on scalpers at least.
i bought my badge today.....if i can't get a room i'm asking for a fucking refund or doing a chargeback on my CC. i was going to ghost this year, but the hotel debacle really canned that one.
AA isn't confirmed, panels aren't confirmed, and professional reg isn't online. this is so shitty for anyone waiting on those things.
also, they haven't even posted the hotel prices, which is EXTRA shitty.
if they want my $, they need to have some shit that makes the con worthwhile. guests and events have gotten really disappointing in the last few years.
considering that they've announced ZERO guests or events, i don't have particularly high hopes for this year either.
literally no one I know has signed up for fanime because of that. guests and events are a huge reason why people go and not announcing any is a bad move on Fanime's part. You can really tell they're just after attendee's money by letting pre-reg get hotel rooms before AA vendors who still don't know whether they've gotten a table or not.
I'm done with this but there really needed to go with it since prereg opened because no one would have guessed there was a benefit to doing it earlier except slight discount.
What will it take for them to bring in paid professionals to run this thing?
As long as people keep coming nothing will change.
Artist Alley really needs to revert back to a first come first serve registration with partial judging to weed out bad artists, taobao resellers and randos.

AA is honestly the only reason i caved and bought the badge. it's one of the best in the country, in my experience.....only behind dragoncon's and megacon's.
dealer's hall has been meh, the costume contest is a hot fucking mess. at least the b&W ball and the karaoke room are still awesome. mostly i'm going to see folks i only see at fanime.
