I am seeing a lot of general "Thank you"s to staff and a few individual ones so I thought it would be bright idea to start a "I want to thank [insert staffer]". If you don't know the name we will try to find them for you!


Name:
Description of the person if no name:
Department they worked in:
Their act of kindness/what they did that deserves a thank you:



I have been able to direct these to the right person. Everyone deserves a good hearted thank you but sometimes there is a little incident that makes that staffer feel warm and fuzzy inside.


I really just want to give a thank you to everyone I worked with and also all of the friendly people I came across, every single one of you. It's so easy to keep a smile when someone gives it back to you. :wub:

I'd like to actually thank YOU, for coming out and personally answering a few rather embarrasing questions I had that I should have known as a three-year Acen vet, you went out of your way for me and I'll always respect you for that, kudos.

Name: Artie and Bloo
Department they worked in: Registration
Their act of kindness/what they did that deserves a thank you: Making me feel like I was part of a whole new family - and telling me that I was practically reg no matter what department I was officially in. I <3 you guys!

Also, my DH Cat. She made my first year staffing awesome, fun, and something that I looked forward to and now miss immensely. *huggles*

My heartfelt thanks can't just go out to one person, or one department, its everyone. Without Registration, I'd have no moniez to count. Having a Reg team work so well with me and the rest of finance, I thank you for that. Without GR, we wouldn't have our guests and our industry to advertise with. Thank you GR, for taking me in and working with me in advertising, especially with the Girodanos Advertisement. I have to send out a big thanks of course to my staff, Chris Gruendemann, Debbie (Con Mom) Landmann, and Jessica Peron. Without the three of you, my deparrtment would have been of major fail. From traveling to cons, to taking my emails. For that, I thank you. Finance, what a wonderful bunch of ladies I work with. They take in my guyness, and love every bit of it. I love working with you ladies, and thank you for being there right alongside with me.

My thanks could go on and on, I just want to send out a heartfelt thanks to everyone who made my job a little easier, more fun, more innovated and much much more.

That would be Joel, Medic 1 is his call sign and he's the EMRT DH. I had the pleasure of meeting him at the staff meetings and EMRT training that my department went to and he is awesome, is he not? :)

I would like to thank Ben of Panel programming and the two registration staff members that helped me with lines and their control over in the doubletree over the con.

And of course Wedge and his team during both dances, because they are awesome, and great, and I could not possibly ever find enough words to show my appreciation for them. :]

I don't know his name but...
Thank you, mystery-IRT member. I was dressed as Haruhi Suzumiya in her school uniform. You were directing people to line-up outside for Anime Hell when I requested you radio Con Mom for me. You immediately radioed for her and although were unable to find her, I was grateful that you honored my request. In the past, I have been completely ignored when asking IRT to radio other staff members. Thank you for taking an extra minute from your time to help.

I'd like to think Bridget from Reg for making me feel less like a no0b. She was new also, so we worked will call together for awhile just talking about how awkward it was. xD

It made me feel less out of place.

I would like to Thank Phil from Artist's Alley and Dealer's Room and whatever else he ran that weekend.

He did an outstanding job and kept his cool even after I lost my cool (sorry about that). He answered any complaints and investigated them and having sat in front of the staff table, I know that he dealt with things as soon as they came in. Kudo's and Thanks to you Phil! Hope to see you in the Alley next year!

Dr.Steel loves you too <3

Hmm I might as well put my thank yous out there.

-Medic 6: You brought me fruit when I wasn't feeling so hot. Made me feel better.

-This is bad I don't know his name... -.- Kinda tall guy blonde-ish hair wore blue shirts throughout the whole con, [I think] he helped us with a bunch of reg problems and was able to help me make a receipt for a customer that paid with a business check. I never got your name, I wanna thank you for putting up with me. >_<

-Corey- I owe you .-. I made you run around for me like a lil monkey when I couldn't leave my station. No matter if I needed badge holders, bill exchange or someone to just plain grab something for me you did it without complaining. Thank you for being my errand boy.

Bloo and Artie- You had faith in me that I wouldn't screw up and let me run a station by myself. Ily guys for that <3. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy =3.

Name: ????????????????
Description of the person if no name: Seller
Department they worked in: it was like the 4th both on the front after the artist selling their paintings it was a Japanese guy, his MOM and on the other side a girl selling music CDs "Japanese Rock"
Their act of kindness/what they did that deserves a thank you: he made my first ACEN experience great

OK this guy was selling stuff at Wizard world 2008, I bought Gundam stuff from him there.
he gave me such good prices on wizard world that I end up spending 90% of my money with him there. he suggested that I should make it to ACEN because he said that there will be more people there selling Gundams.

I took his advice and went to ACEN for my first time.......I checked all prices from other people selling Gundam stuff, and I got so disappointed that people were trying to sell the merchandise even more expensive than what it cost online (shipping included)
NO one wated to lower the prices......they were more concern about getting more proffit than actually lower prices so people can buy more and they gain more money by volume.....I end up buying more Gundam stuff and again spending most of my money with him.

any ways I want to thank that guy and his mom for being so understanding, willing to sell and not being a DICK (excuse the language) with the prices like every one else......I think that if it wans't for him, this could it been my first and last year going.

if some one can get me the name of the guy.........last thing, THANKS ACEN staff for making anime fans have their own paradise for 3 days.

see you next year.

I can't thank any one person for everything, because there were so many staffers that I thought were just absolutely amazing.

I firstly want to thank Chelsea and Artie for making me feel so welcome in the reg staffing family. The entire group was already so close, I was afraid I would feel left out, but all of you guys are so great, I didn't want to leave by the end of the weekend. Everyone was so patient with the questions I was asking, I never felt afraid to make it known that I did not understand something.

To the medics, because my hearing in my right ear went out during the MOVE concert, and even though you guys couldn't tell me indefinitely if I was going to be okay or not, the fact that you kept assuring me that it would probably be fine after I slept awhile (and it was) calmed my anxiety that something bad had happened, thus preventing a possibly panic attack moment.

To Murloc and his partner on Friday: Thank you for pointing me to the customer service at the Hyatt to ask about the MOVE tickets, because even if they weren't giving them out there, customer service then directed me to the information desk in the Dealer Hall. Without your directions, I probably would have missed getting a ticket.

To IRT in general: Although I did not get to chat with many of you, those that I did speak to were some of the most amusing and awesome people I've ever met. There was a girl with dreadlocks (I don't remember your name, sorry!) that let me sit with her and her partner in staff services because there really was nowhere else to sit, and even conversed with me a few times during the convention when I saw her. You guys are all so hard working, I really appreciate everything you guys do, both visibly and invisibly (NINJAS)

To my staff roomies, even though they don't frequent the forums: You guys are the best anyone could ever ask for in roommates. Friendly, neat, and amusing as hell. You guys didn't have to let me hang out with you all weekend, but you did, and I'm really grateful, because you all were so awesome.

And lastly, to all the staff in general! I met some awesome people, and finally was able to experience a weekend drama and worry free for the first time in at least two years (lots of drama in my life) because of you guys, and the awesome congoers that I ran in to. I can't wait to rejoin you all next year for lucky number 13!~

hmm.. people to thank..

well..
I should probably thank Bloo and Shay for persuading me to join the reg team, If I didn't talk to them at youmacon, I don't think I would have thought about being on staff. I hope to do it again next year.

I'll thank arty and my roomates for enlightening me with Dr. Steel. I am now a toy soldier. on a side note, one of my friends down here in savannah is going to start up a group of toy soldiers. .. I'll have to work on getting a lab coat and a set of black gloves.

thanks Spaz, for help training me.

thank the economy that gas isn't back up to 3 bucks a gallon yet.
