UPDATE FROM SCOTT!!

He has found a way to get us special badges for those of us who are fanparody creators this year. That guarantees our ability to skip the line and get whatever seat we want. As such, he needs the info of all of us who are attending by Wednesday at the latest so that he can personally print them out.

We will have to go to Video Ops (currently) to get them, since he has said the people at preregistration will know nothing about them, it's all him.

So everyone who is attending, either post here or send me and/or Deuce with what you would like on the nametags. He said he could do production name and real name. These were the examples he gave:

NoN.D.E. Fanfilms
Scott A Melzer

or:

Team Four Star
MasakoX

This way, people can actually also see we have special tags I guess and some may recognize our names. Who knows. PLUS this will be MUCH easier for us to find one another. He also spoke of everyone getting together Saturday at Noon potentially for lunch for all creators. Considering the AMV contest is at 3, in theory that would be a decent time. Most others have claimed they're busy later Saturday night anyway.

So send me and/or Deuce exactly how you'd like to be displayed on your badges, and also what times work for you for a full lunch. This isn't replacing our meeting planned for Thursday Night or Friday Afternoon currently, unless we'd like it to. Let me know what you all think. I don't remember if Miko was going to Otakon. Currently I only know of myself, moonbunnychan, Deuce and Warlike Swans. Is anyone else able to go?

I got the email and responded.

As far as being recognizable when meeting Fri, I'm too lazy to find a picture that doesn't offend my vanity, but I'll be cosplaying as Lust so you should be able to recognize me by that.

Okay, cool, I should have figured he'd use yours since you sent in the Happy meal thing. I just get the feeling more than us four are going, it's just only us who have been here for a while it seems.

If you could pass along this to him I'd be most grateful:

Real name: Susan Fry
Studio Name: moonbunnychan

I posted my facebook page a little while back, it's public and has loads of pictures of me.

I'd also personally rather do lunch Friday OR Saturday but not both. I'm supposed to be doing lunch with somebody else one of the two days, though which one wasn't written in stone. To the best of my knowledge I'm not doing anything in particular Saturday till the AMV Contest.

*edit*
And since he never comes here but will be with me at the con:

Real name: Ben Butcher
Studio Name: Otakujop Studio

Deuce, Scott still hasn't heard back from you. If you did e-mail, he hadn't received it as of sometime last night. So if you did send something, send me the info and I'll relay it. Still don't know what would be wrong with your e-mails.

moonbunnychan, I passed along your info and he confirmed it.

Guys, I have an urgent request. I NEED access to a laptop for a little while if at all possible. You can benefit too actually.

Since I'm going to attempt to write a fanparody this next year (or at least get started), Scott offered to let me have copies of every fanparody he has, which is quite a hefty collection from oldschool to new school. Even stuff that's only shown once, and others that have never been shown. A treasure trove of fandom basically. The problem is both he and I only have hard drives, and we don't know anyone trustworthy with a laptop whom we can contact.

I would sincerely appreciate it if any of you who may be bringing a laptop, or your friends perhaps, if you'd let me and him hook up our drives to it and let it be a transfer hub for us for a little while. I can even come to your hotel room and we can leave them there so it's safe and not in any strange place. I just really want to have this collection so I can study it, and plus, because it's pretty awesome stuff generally :D If you want it too, you're welcome to take it as long as you don't spread it across the internet of course. He's totally willing to give other creators the stuff so they have material. It's something over 200 gigs of fan parodies that he's acquired over time.

Please help me, I really would like to have this collection to help me make a good parody. I need all the ideas I can get. I'll buy you dinner in exchange if it comes down to it :)

Will none of you or your friends have a laptop at all? Please I really need some help. I don't have another opportunity to get these from Scott until next year. It's too much to transfer online, and I really need the help. Seriously, it's not much, we basically just need to plug the drives in, and drag one folder over, and let it sit for a few hours while we're at the con or something. That's all I'm asking, so please help me out. I don't know how else I can do this.

I have a laptop which sucks so badly it is practically unusable. I'm staying with a friend in another part of the city, so I guess I'd have to drag it to the con... I dunno how safe it would be unattended in a staff area, though i have to say a thief would be very disappointed by it. I guess I can pack it so that you at least have a last resort option... but it REALLY sucks, so I'd keep looking.

If you're not in the area, if you're willing to let me take it to my hotel room (or yours if you're nearby) and just let everything transfer for a while, that's all I need. As long as it has two USB ports, that's all I need. Preferably if it's still USB 2 of course.

Scott let me know he has a potential alternative, but I appreciate the thought of bringing it. Having it as a backup plan will put my mind at ease. Thanks a lot for considering it. Drop me your number in a PM if you have the chance so I can get ahold of you. What time will you be arriving, later Friday? Will it be the 2 PM meeting at that little deli?

Whoops, I missed the boat on getting that badge. :/

Is the place we're talking about Edie's? I MIGHT be able to swing 2:00 but I probably won't want to stay for TOO long - if anyone can go earlier it'd be great. I'm one of those jerks that lines up for autographs way before they technically allow it (I just lurk like hell), and I promised a friend who can't make it to the con that I'd try and get something signed by Uematsu for him. I know it's not until 3:30, but it's only an hour, and it looks like he's only there for one day. I guess ideally I just want to have enough time to chill instead of wolfing down a sandwich, because I know I'd have time for that, but yeah. Crowds. Will screw you over. And I'm paranoid. XD

As of 8:30 Scott said it wasn't too late if we knew someone else who wanted a badge made up, he also said he'd have some extra blank ones.

What two names would you want on it?

For those who couldn't come, Salad went well, but didn't have the same impact as 4. I still think people really enjoyed it though. It was great meeting those of you who were there. |:>
