  1. I'm skeptical that there could be a virtual AMV Contest. Very early on, when Anime Boston was new, they used to pipe the AMV Contest over a hotel TV channel so that people could watch it in their hotel rooms. When they stopped doing that, the explanation was that they got heat for "broadcasting" copyrighted material.
  2. This is a wise observation. So, things are proceeding in a smart way it seems.
  3. So, it is starting to look like this CORVID-19 thing might (as in "maybe", not for sure) be turning into total poopshow for months. Anything to share about the current thoughts and inclinations of the Otakon officers and staff? My wife is 68 years old and still has a compromised immune system from chemo a couple of years ago, so we're wondering how Otakon is leaning in regards to the next convention.
  4. I looked at it around 12:03, and it was still available then. Out of curiosity I checked again at about 12:08, and it was gone.
  5. I wonder if the Marriott will allow reserving 2-bed rooms this year. Last year the Marriott rooms were 100% "Run of the house", which means "Whatever room we feel like giving you when you show up". Not a nice situation for families or people with a group of 3 - 4 people.
  6. We got ours today. This might have already been discussed in this very long thread, but just in case it is useful or helpful to someone... We had two different shipments coming to one address. One arrived Friday, but no one was here to sign for it, so they left the card in the mailbox. Today, the second one arrived, and when the carrier had me sign for the one that arrived today, I showed him the card that was left Friday, and asked if he had that one. No, it was at the post office. BUT, he said, if I signed that card and gave it to him, or just signed it and left it in the mail
  7. I've been coming to Otakon for many years, and I've never seen chaos like this. What the heck is going on? The Hyatt tells me that the "Otakon Members" rate is sold out -- not "Locked until 6 months before the convention" as claimed in another post; sold out. The Hyatt quotes me $489 for a room. In 2002, I made a reservation there 3 months bfore the convention, and got a nice room on the Club Floor for a very decent rate. The Sheraton says that they have rooms: for $1160 per night (!) The Marriott Inner Harbor told me on the phone that the hotel is completely sold out. But
