  1. Suggestion: bring back daily passes

    Yeah that's pretty much what I figured. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  2. Number of attendees?

    Yeah, attendance fell right where I thought it would. 27% decrease from peak attendance in 2013. That's a lot of ground to make up.
  3. Suggestion: bring back daily passes

    Yeah I think the Day Pass thing is pretty much permanently dead. One idea I saw that might work was to pro-rate the at-door cost based on how late in the con you register. Something like $100 Friday, $80 Saturday, $50 Sunday, for example. But the whole "membership" setup might kill that idea too.
  4. Otakon 2018 Guest Request

    I think the bulk of my usual requests have been named already. But yes, more seiyuu. If I ever have the inclination to see dub actors I can go to any one of a billion other cons. Japanese guests are make or break as far as I'm concerned.
  5. Otakon 2017: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

    Good -More space -Much better handling of autographs Bad -Bag checks that are a complete waste of time and held the line up on Friday morning far longer than necessary -Terrible data reception in the Artist Alley and spotty wi-fi coverage at best Ugly -Charity auction was an absolute disgrace, as I mentioned elsewhere. Please put someone in charge of this who actually cares about it and doesn't want to treat it as just a sideshow to the art auction. This event should not be an afterthought that you just toss in somewhere and then not take care of.
  6. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Received mine today, huzzah. Mail lady actually made me sign for it, so I guess the people not getting signatures are just lazy mail carriers. Seems like a waste to pay for the signature requirement though if the mail carriers are going to randomly ignore it. Didn't have to sign for my ACen or AX badges. I'm glad Otakon at least included the lanyard though instead of making me pick it up on-site like the other two.
  7. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Got my tracking number finally, says my badge should arrive tomorrow. Guess I won't be able to sleep in this weekend...
  8. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    I submitted a help desk ticket for the same issue and was basically given the polite equivalent of "I dunno lol." They did at least confirm that I am registered, but beyond that they apparently have no clue why the system is displaying like that.
  9. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    No badge or tracking number here either. Kind of frustrating honestly. But as long as it gets here before Day 0, I'll be okay.
  10. I Have Not Received My Badge In the Mail!

    Nobody has received them yet, they haven't been mailed. Just be patient.
  11. Guest Request: 2015

    Yeah, I'd be excited for this announcement except I'm wondering about the autograph situation too. I detest lotteries and I would absolutely loathe having one for a guest like this (or any guest really). Would rather have the 6 AM Friday morning line for passes than that. The new autograph area that was set up last year where Saori Hayami had her autograph session would be ideal for a guest like this, so I hope they use it again and just have an open autograph session. And more than one session would also be ideal. I think Jim mentioned having her for the entire weekend earlier so maybe that's possible. But until I hear more details my excitement is going to be a bit tamped down.

    Stereopony was a great band, and that show in Boston did rock. I hadn't heard of them forming a new group but I'm definitely looking forward to seeing it.
  13. Guest Request: 2015

    Well that eliminates several options... It isn't Megumi Hayashibara and it isn't Maaya Sakamoto... Hmmm...
  14. Guest Request: 2015

    Well, got the Friday musical guest guess wrong. Oh well, there's always next time I suppose. Looks like a cool group, and their music is pretty good from what I've listened to so far. Looking forward to seeing them perform.
  15. Guest Request: 2015

    Curious about this as well. One of the cool things about getting artists is that sometimes they draw. Though with the crowds that Otakon typically brings it can be pretty difficult to get anything. But maybe he'll submit a piece to the charity auction?
