Well, this year it didn't work out because of precautions, competition and other stuff, but perhaps if it is looked into early enough it can be a gogo for 2009. I was thinking that good things to be allowed would be

Anime
Manga
Plushies
Action Figures/Dolls

That would be ok right? Is anyone else in agreement with the swap concept?

Well since I'm the person who suggested it and tried to get going on it (although a little to late) for 2008, I'd say I'm in.

The dealers who paid good money to sell stuff will cry foul. The convention can not afford to piss off this important stream of revenue. The chances of a swap meet at the convention site are very slim. You could have an off site swap meet. Who says it has happen during ACEN. The weather is still nice you could make it an excuse for a meet up.

True, that would be a good
idea... Yeah, sorry about not waiting for you to do this, Mock-Kappa. I thought the earlier we got it on the administrators minds, the better, but I thought of posting this after I read yours. Thanks!

This is correct. The dealers would have a serious problem with such activities.

I'm not going to close the thread however, because an off-site sort of thing, like proposed above would still be acceptable. It simply cannot happen at the con though.

This is true.
Also, let me mention again that I did start an Anime Central Group on www.Swaptree.com for the purpose of boardmembers who are interested in swapping items. Membership is free on Swaptree.com

here's the link to the group: http://www.swaptree.com/WebFrmUserGroupsHo...ildGroupID=1933
