Feedback / Re: Confuzzled 2015 Pros and Cons
« on: May 28, 2015, 16:48:49 »
Thank you kindly for the feedback!

Regarding the gaming events, we'll definitely be reviewing them and seeing what we can do to improve him.

The problem with a games room is that it is super high in resource requirements:
  • Setting up two Wii U's took about half an hour and tearing down about 15 minutes. Add more consoles and this would get longer meaning we'd need to basically 'take over' a room because sharing it would be a huge effort every start and stop.
  • For all the hours its open, it would need a rotation of at least two members of staff, similar to Ops which has a big team to handle it. Given the cost of the equipment involved, said staff would need to be well trusted.
  • It would require some careful security requirements to prevent theft, including maybe a security guard at the door for all opening hours.
  • We'd need a TV or compatible projector, screen and a sound system for every console. These are items we have but are in high demand by other events with presentations from laptops.
  • Arranging consoles and loaned equipment requires careful planning and the older systems certainly aren't getting any less delicate!

If we were able to solve all these issues then maybe we could bring back the games room! But failing that, let us know specific games you'd like to play and maybe we can add more events next year. :)

Not to mention the drain on personal that is required to PAT inspect all consoles/machines that attendees bring it for said games room. It's a legal requirement and it's not something that can be feasibly done "on the fly".
Essentially, as Nido said, we'd need a team of people who are prepared to sit in the games room to monitor it, and the equipment, and perform any PAT inspections required.

TL;DR - If you want a games room we need people to volunteer to run it! ;)

WARNING: RUMOUR MILL! UNSUBSTANTIATED SCUTTLEBUTT AHEAD! DO NOT TAKE THIS AS GOSPEL! IT WAS HEARD THIRD-HAND! CHINESE WHISPERS MAY BE IN EFFECT!

I've heard that the main problem with any server errors regarding the UKFur Forum is that the person who administrates them isn't easy to get hold of, which is why when it goes down it stays down for a while. Shame really if that is the case.

Does that include for the hotel?  :)

CF has an all-inclusive ticketing scheme. The price of the con includes the hotel reg and fees. :)

This is one of the items I was considering using. I would keep the same colour scheme, which would obviously signify it as a non-firearm.

Oh yeah, in that colour scheme is is (as you say) obviously not a firearm and is permitable.

If you're looking for Happy Hardcore then I can easily suggest any of the "Bonkers" mix albums. Freaking epic! <3

Bonkers 4 is my personal favourite followed by Bonkers X.

HARDCORE WILL NEVER DIE!

I think Manchester might have something to say about the second city part :)

They might, but they'd be wrong. ;) List of towns and cities in England by population.

I wouldn't say so. I know a few folks who are in their 40s/50s who fursuit. :)

CaliHusky's right, that stuff was taken at an London Furmeet, not RBW.

Now I'm seriously considering revising my bet as to how many times the bar staff will have to restock over the weekend.

Any advance on last year's total of three trips to the cash and carry?
