    Not trying to call y'all out. The work you guys put in is overdone, underappreciated, and probably way more stressful than anyone can imagine. I -DO- think Otakon, as a whole though, has had sketch communication in general historically, and it makes some people paranoid. I have no knowledge of what goes on behind the scenes, but more regular updates could help a lot, in all situations. Right now the panic is hotels, and we get official responses on the irregular. I appreciate it, but it def took awhile. A social media person to reach out and give updates regularly might keep people less on edge. Remind us that you're all working, remind those giving into fear it'll be okay, and remind those of us who are chill to keep being chill (and posting skeleton memes). Same exact thing is every year with guests. Otakon typically announces guests much farther-out than a lot of other cons, which puts people on edge. Updates like "talking to 4 VAs", "Currently persuing 3 Foreign guests" etc can be cryptic and fun, while also letting us know where the process is other than being blind. Again, no disrespect. Just my two cents on the situation. I know I'm going. I know I'll find a room. I know the guests will be decent at worst. Other people need those reminders though, and a weekly status update tweet can't be toooo hard.

  6. The Good Mailed badges - Mine never showed up. Finding from Staff where to go was frustrating, but it was simple to get them with no issues. Panel Room Sizes - Seemed good! The big panels had big rooms! Which leads to... Queue Rooms - Yes, yes, yes. This was amazing. It didnt clutter the hall. It gave staff somewhere to point us. If we needed to leave for a drink or WC it was easy to return. 100% bring these back. Dealers Room - The food options inside were amazing. I felt like I was going to pass out Friday cause of my costume cutting off some circulation without me realizing, and having the option to sit down, get food and water instantly and conveniently was sooo nice. Arcade Room - Lots of games, lots of space, seemed well staffed though I never needed them. Love it. Late Evening and Night Activities - 18+ Panel variety felt good to me. Temperature - Pleasant. I never felt hot. This was great. I was in a full body suit and multiple layers and I didn't want to die. Thank you. The Bad Con Center Entrances - Maybe if we can explore the convention center more on Thursday it'd be nice. Really just looking for thing to say can be improved. Maps - Mark them more with "YOU ARE HERE" cause some had them, some didn't, and the ones that didn't required some figuring. I'm sure theres logistic reasons, but as always I'd love to see DR hours match AA hours. Its nice being able to wander AA during nighttime downtime. The Ugly Nothing you were all beautiful <3

    Have we heard yet how people who got their badges mailed can get guides + printed schedules on Thursday?

    That's my biggest concern with having the tracking number. Ignoring being promised it and all, we were told (iirc, correct me if I am wrong) that these would HAVE to be signed for. If they don't...that's great. But if they do, those of us with jobs and other obligations need to know WHEN its coming so we can make arrangements to be sure its signed for.

    Keeping customers out of the loop is never really a solid plan. At least give us a "we know there is a problem and are working on it..."
