  1. Idolmaster Cosplay meeting?

    Is anyone gathering an general idolmaster cosplay meeting? Or any other event? I ask because the last two years at least cosplay was the only way idolmaster got on the program. I'm not really much of a cosplayer, but I'd like to meet other fans.

    - The list of panels in the program book was in no obvious sort order, either by time or by name. - I couldn't figure out where to see the one guest I was interested in, a list of panels to look at by guest might have helped. - It makes no sense to put up a PDF from 2011 on the web site as a map, when several things have moved to different rooms. - It was confusing to include an advertisement for a DIFFERENT convention with an hourly schedule that looked like the same hotel. - Not everyone has a smart phone that can install apps (mine is out of free RAM), put some kind of downloadable information in something more common-denominator file like a PDF or a PNG. - Registration time is out of hand, you might as well just tell everyone to preregister next year. (I preregistered, but a friend said he waited 90 minutes Saturday afternoon, and gave up when it looked like he'd have to wait another 90 minutes). - I only found a room showing AMVs by accident, and it seemed to be showing compilations from previous years rather than this years contestants. I realize the entries all come in on a tight deadline, but seeing them is one of my interests. (I couldn't spend three full days at the convention because of an injury, so I missed events on Sunday, which is usually when the finalists have been shown.)

    * I couldn't find any printed schedules when I came by Thursday night (about 8 PM). My badge had been mailed so getting the program book and schedule was the only reason to make the trip that night. I did get the program book, so it wasn't a total waste I got though most of Friday using prints screen-shoots of sections of the PDF, before I saw a schedule in print. * Putting up PDFs of per-day printable black-and-white schedules would be some extra work, but it would tend to counter-balance the recurring problems with printing and distribution of physical schedules. I do have a phone that can theoretically access the internet, and I brought a laptop that could do wifi, but I still tend to refer to paper for immediate decisions of what to do next. * I did pay for a T-mobile 2-day "Daypass" starting about 1 PM Friday through 1 PM Sunday, and it worked pretty well in the Hyatt area (mainly checking mail with IMAP). With the multiple venues it's probably unlikely this could be extended across the whole con. * It's interesting to have panel/event descriptions grouped by subject area in the program book, but the way it was done made it impossible to go from the title in the schedule to the full description of an event. Event descriptions were printed with a code that appeared nowhere else. Another printed page cross-referencing titles to pages or section codes would seem like a a way to rationalize this organization.
  5. Registration Questions

    I have registered, and received my badge by mail. What will be the procedures like for getting a program booklet and so forth? Should I still come and wait in line Thursday...
