tl;dr: painfully obvious that karaoke was ill-prepared both with supplies and mental concepts of how to do things.
Okay, rant done. Acen was 90%+ good to me this year. Just the one fail. Normally cons have more fail than that, so I'd say that things went well!
I understand a few of your complaints. Yes, I was kinda pissed about that couple that had THREE songs. No one on the stage knew it was them as they had signed under three different names. And they were not friends of anyone from the few conversations I had about it. So I can understand your anger but do know that NOBODY knew that it was the same people. The sound was quite loud, I will give you that. Nadia ( girl on the computer ) was told that the sound would be adjusted.
The List idea actually made perfect sense. The list switching was not that horrifying.
By any chance were you the girl with the blue wig? She stated a similar compliant that night.
Mixed Cheer Jeers:
The UG had more room than last year, but the lights were not quite as , pretty? 2008 UG just looked better. I could however see NO+CHIN's amazing hair so I guess it wasn't that big of a deal. Line was shorter than last year's
I'm going to be pummeled with something but I miss LineCon. I know, I'm weird, commence the pummeling.
Cosplay this year wasn't as repetitive but it was really hard to find great cosplayers.
