Events / Re: possible MtG booster draft event?
« on: April 01, 2013, 17:28:03 »
I'm in if the times work well :)

Bring something old or fun (INN would be perfect).
I'm already bored by Gatecrash, and Dragon Maze would be problematic.

Would like it if you can report it somehow.

Discussion / Quick Registration Question

Just want to make sure.

Is it possible to register as a plus and then later upgrade to sponsor by paying the difference?
I'm guessing it will have to be done manually via email to the reg team?

At least for a while (until I clean up my webserver), the script is available here:

Thanks ^^

Is there anyway to get the script? I have some trouble understanding what's being said at some times.

I didn't sponsor Confuzzled. In general, I think that early dealer den's access is unfair and stupid, and being an idealistic silly wolf, I can't support such a thing.

It's one of the few perks that most conventions I can think of give to those that sponsor and thus help make the convention happen.

It is up to you to decide if the extra money is worth the reduced time in queue for Registration and earlier Dealer's Den access.

It's not about worth, and those other cons also won't get my money as much as I'd be happy to sponsor them (as I've been doing for any con I went to that doesn't have this feature). It's unfair in my opinion, therefore I won't put my money down.

-Was the sponsor comic meant to be picked up at the Dealers' den? I was having so much fun at the con that I didn't notice its absence until now. >_>

I was wondering about that too...
Didn't get it at reg, and I asked, there wasn't anything missing I was suppose to get. Thought they canceled it completely.
Does it exist?

Long auction is long.

Maybe requiring items to need more bids before going to auction could be helpful. Maybe 6 or 7 rather than 4.

I hear from people who work at EF auction that it might not help much. If two people want an item they can easily fill all the bid slots up if each of them use minor increments

Quick reply to everyone that...

Good to know :)

Let's see if I remember all of my points.

Dance competition set up was a complete fail. The dancers pretty much performed to the judges only. 90% of the crowd only saw mostly the dancers' backs. It would be pretty easy to solve that by placing the judges in the crowd's front row. I'm sure other solution are available too. What made this even more silly is that you had at least 5 official cameras recording it, yet on the projectors you showed input from the cameras that also filmed the dancers' back. That was a really WTF, and ruined that event for me (and many others).

Dance event fail: So you got those dancing panels for the dance competition. Cool. But why weren't they on the dance floor too? Was it a logistic issue? Carpet is really not a good dancing surface.
I like the intimate room we had for the dances, but can't say I'm surprised when I think the dances at CFz 2008 were more crowded than this.

I didn't sponsor Confuzzled. In general, I think that early dealer den's access is unfair and stupid, and being an idealistic silly wolf, I can't support such a thing. I'm not going to argue this  here (I wanted to do that at EF forums, but EF staff simply placed their arguments and locked the topic like very mature people. Too bad since I would easily counter argument all of their silly reasoning), but it does lead me to positive feedback on the fact that we have the Standard + option. I think it's a great option to have.

Like the venue! The spread out corridors are great for a furry convention. Much less elevator mess for everyone. Rooms were great too. The included breakfast is awesome! I've been to many 4 star hotels at the UK and that has too be the best breakfast I was served. Surrounding area is great. Hope the con will manage to stay at Hinkley for a few more times.

There is one thing that was funny regarding the venue. I think the drinks/food prices were very reasonable for a 4 star hotels, but the dishes really lacked consistency. Me and two others ordered the same dish and each of us got something else. I.e., one got a big plate with it, one got a small plate with it, and one got the small plate + fries. Was weird.

The pawpet show was probably the best pawpet show I've seen since the epic Dreamcatchers. Very light, funny and entertaining, while not suffering from long intermissions. Keep it up. I hope that unlike EF, this will be on video/dvd one day.

Long auction is long. Can't say I have any ideas about that, but there's a feature that could be useful. Placing a list with the order of the items are going to be auditioned could be useful. In this case if someone is interested only in auctioned piece #107, he doesn't have to sit thought 100 auctions, and can just visit every now and then and check where the auction is. Having the number on the projector with the piece's information would work well for this.

Off-Topic / MTG Cards

I'm going to bring some MTG cards with me to play with.
I do, however, have lots to give away/trade, but, I'm unable to carry all of them with me.

Feel free to look here and contact me in case you want me to get something for you :)

Returning wolf here. Haven't been to Confuzzled since the very first one back in 2008!

I figured that with over 600 attendees, I should get to know more people before the con, so if anyone wants to chat, hit me up.

Any particular kind of bats?

It would be a general review rather than any specifics.
