Gripes Got something you want fixed...

IRT is still doing this? I would be crying too! I remember a long time ago I was waiting to get autographs from TsuShiMaMiRe. I was 3rd in line. About 30 minutes into waiting some IRT told me and a few others that we were in the wrong line and sent us walking all through the dealers room. It wasn't until a while later that they realized we were not waiting for some comic book artist's signature. Luckily I got back into line because the people who were 1st and 2nd vouched for me DX
Now for LM.C.... I swear if I'm lining up where IRT tells me to and then they suddenly decide to change their mind I'm not getting out. They'll have to pry my body off of the carpet. It's ridiculous the lack of information that is spread among them and how they suddenly decide to move people. I know it's hard but if you find out the line is not working, don't punish the people who waited and send them to the back. :/

The AMV staff quit.
The Powers That Be struggled to find replacements. This was difficult.
At the 11th hour, I said "Well, my department is doing pretty well, I guess I'll try to help out and take over AMVs."
Unfortunately, this didn't happen until late in the game, and I've never run an AMV department before, so I'm scrambling to do what I can. I'm sorry that it won't be what it could be this year, but I'm doing everything in my power to make AMVs awesome.
Hey Josh is there anything us congoers can do to make thing easier for you?

I appreciate the thought!
If there's anything you can do, it's this:
Please be understanding. I'm learning the job; I'm throwing this all together with a lot less time than the job really needs, and I'm trying to get things squeezed in in places that are still available.
So... we won't have everything that we should this year. That's not the fault of the con-goers, and it's not fair to you guys, and I'm sorry about that. I'm doing everything that I can to make this as good as I can, though, and I'll listen and come up with better things for next year.
Oh, and I do intend to take submissions. We won't have a contest-- I don't have time to make a good one, and a bad one wouldn't be fair to the AMV makers-- but I do intend to screen stuff people send me, so once I post the guidelines, go on and send us stuff!

Assistant Department Head of Registration
Thank you, I really appreciate this! I think that if there is at least a booth for discount badges for people in service, or something along those lines, that it could really help some people get through the lines quicker. Also I don't know if this would be a possibility, but maybe there could be a reimbursement for people in the service that order their badges?

We had no idea that there WAS a military discount. My husband and I have already ordered our badges and asked for them through the mail, since we're coming from out of state. I hope Mindue's suggestion is taken into serious consideration.

Also, we had been there as a group Naruto cosplay on saturday, so we were disappointed to find out that the photoshoot was when we were in LINE on friday. we had no idea where any photoshoots were, really. please try and have a copy of the schedule of all the photoshoots and gatherings in the program book this year. thanks
Like I said, this was my first acen, and it was a blast. Can't wait to be back this year. I just hope lines are better this year.

That is pretty rough but I'd imagine it would be tough from their end. Since they would need the badge back and verify that it was yours and then figure out how to do the refund (can't do to credit card after so much time, probably have to cut a check). It is unfortunate but almost every convention/concert/event I've gone to hasn't allowed refunds.

I'm going to interject in here and create a new 2012 Gripes topic in this very forum so that we can stay organized. the old one will be closed so that people don't get the two confused!
