  1. Weather for ACen 2016!

    This. Mad props to the Weather Department.
  2. Selling Hyatt Room

    Whoa. Trying to make me look like the bad guy while you're scalping rooms?
  3. Selling Hyatt Room

    You could try not being a jerk and just cancel your reservation.
  4. Advice for a first-time panelist?

    One comment on this. If you have a Powerpoint, use it as an outline and/or to show examples. Do NOT put your entire presentation into the Powerpoint and simply read it to the audience; it's very monotonous when people can just read what you're going to say.
  5. Dat 2016 Room Block

    It is very disappointing that they announced the times only on Facebook. Shouldn't the ACen.org website be the first place where information is posted since it's their official portal?
  6. Just a heads-up. Today is the last day to cancel reservations at the Hyatt without losing a night's deposit. Also, there may be a small number of rooms available throughout the day from people cancelling.
  7. 2012 Gripes thread

    I wouldn't say I was bothered, I just didn't expect it or agree with the placement. There was no where I could find to tell me that it was to be included in that shoot. It's reasonable to assume that others didn't know it was to be included there either. This was possibly compounded by the Madoka shoot running over, causing other cosplayers to leave thinking they were at the wrong shoot. There were at least three other KS cosplayers at the con who weren't there. The forum post didn't explicitly say that it was to be included either, just that there was a shoot scheduled for 11:30 pm/Saturday. I don't have a solution to this issue, as it would be impossible to list everything that would be included in such a shoot.

    I wasn't aware of this. I thought I had read somewhere that each location had a staff member to keep time and organize things. The only other shoot I went to was for P&S on Friday night and there was someone who I thought was staff organizing all the poses. I know there aren't unlimited volunteers, but perhaps that's the best solution. So my suggestion: have a volunteer at each photoshoot location to keep time and to make decisions like changing locations due to weather or going over time. I'd classify it as a visual novel with a few H-scenes. It isn't centered around the H-scenes and they can be disabled (no pun intended). I know it was in jest, but there are many animes with more and more graphic H-scenes, some that had their own shoots. If I hadn't found read the forums, I never would have thought it would be classified as such.

    I dressed as a character from Katawa Shoujo, and was looking for a cosplay meetup for it. Since it's still fairly new (and arguably unrelated) there was no meetup for KS specifically, but after a search of the forums, I discovered it was being lumped in the the H-Anime/Games shoot. I don't really understand why it was combined with that shoot. On Saturday night, the Madoka cosplay shoot in the dome ran over its time limit (11:00pm - 11:30pm). The H-Anime/Game shoot that was supposed to be after it (11:30pm - 12:00am) simply never happened. When the Madoka crowd cleared out around 11:40, there was no apparent staff member to try to organize anything like the other shoots I saw. After everyone milling about for a while, the Catherine/Persona shoot eventually started a few minutes early. I only met one other cosplayer there from KS who also had to search the forums to determine when the meetup was supposed to happen. I guess I'm just asking for a little more transparency on "grouped" events like this, and to stick to the provided schedules.
  10. Glomping. Make it a no-no.

    I don't see why anyone would accept this. If some stranger tackles you, punch them in the face. They have no right to assault you and you have every right to defend yourself.
