CocoFaerie posted a topic in Otakon 2018Welcome to 2018 hons. This thread will help alert you hons to important diversions & changes to the rails & trails so you won't get bogged down on the road to the 25th Otakon. First, some important changes involving metro: Riders can no longer use the trains & buses if their SmarTrip or CharmCard would lead to a negative balance (i.e. not enough balance to make your trip). Next, there's a new intiative for 2018 called the "Rush Hour Promise" expected to be approved today. That would offer refunds for Metrorail riders if the trains are excessively late, or there's an unexpected disruption, etc. More about that to come. Last for now, work continues on making celluar service available in more underground tunnels within the network. You'll notice that over the course of the Otakon's stay in DC.
I have a room booked at the Marriott Metro Center, and am looking for roommates. I am looking for 2-3 female adults (18+). No drugs, smoking, sex, or partying in the room. Must be respectful of others and hotel property. I am female, 26, and a cosplayer. I would love to room with other cosplayers, and cosplay is welcome. I would also like to get know anyone I will room with before the convention. The cost will be split based on how many people are in the room. Payment must be paid in full before you receive a room key. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact me at email@example.com
Welcome hons to the Roll-Call Thread! It's a tradition of mine to offer this for all the Otakon goers that will grace the convention floor. This being the 25th Otakon, I thought something fine was needed. So with that, here are this year's parameters: NAME: HOMETOWN: # of OTAKONS ATTENDED (including this year's, if applicable): BONUS (Your favorite anime that you first saw, and/or was announced, at the Otakon): I think that's fine enough. Be good until then, and we'll meet again in August.
windseeker posted a topic in Otakon 2018I think this is concern-worthy: 'White Civil Rights Rally' application approved for DC https://www.wusa9.com/article/news/local/dc/white-civil-rights-rally-application-approved-for-dc/65-565729881 It looks like there will be a "Unite the Right" rally in Lafayette Park on August 11 & 12. Yes, this is the same group that ran the rally in Charlottesville where Heather Heyer was killed. Will most likely affect traffic and more...
