And just because I'm paranoid, the announcement is also on the Anime Boston web site:

I'd like to ask that people please stop e-mailing and PMing me directly wih requests to get in or other Registration questions. I'm not in Registration. There's nothing I can do.

All requests for late pre-registration are being turned down. We REALLY can't fit anybody else...but apparently our Registration Manager is hearing every excuse in the book...as well as lots of people who are sad, angry, confused, and every other emotion that fits.

We hate having to tell people they can't come, but that's the unfortunate reality of the situation this year. At least people know in advance now...unlike last year where people didn't know until they got to the door.

If you didn't make it in time, start planning for Anime Boston 2005...or consider visiting our friends at Bakuretsu Con and PortConMaine.

Oh man... I hope you pick up a Castle Pass and show up anyway... Boston's a great city and you can definitely make the most of a vist. ^^
(Plus, it would be nice to see you again.)

For those whom aren't yet registered and don't mind 6-8 hours of work a day...Concider staffing. Several departments (including mine) are looking for a few hard workers over the age of 18. Pay a visit to http://www.animeboston.com/about/staffrecruitment.html for benefits and signup forms. (for camera operator positions, send request to Operations)

Oooh... I may have to mention that to a few of my friends in the BU Anime Club... The whole club didn't get registered because of some huge error... kinda funny in that ironic way when you think about it... ^^

Yes, I mentioned that in a thread awhile ago. It is a great idea.

I dread standing in line again! :hafha: I was in an hour-long line for a one-day pass last year. I hope the line moves a LOT faster this year since it appears that everyone must go through it. I had hoped that the reason that the pre-registration form asked for an address was that the badges and packets would be sent by mail. :lost:

How long does it take for them to clear a press pass? I wasn't originally going to work at the convention, but I guess it's the only way... -_-

According to the website, depending on the type of press pass applied for.

For Web press info: http://www.animeboston.com/press/webinfo.shtml
Web Press Application form: http://www.animeboston.com/press/webregister.shtml

For Media Press: http://www.animeboston.com/press/

According to the website, an advanced notice of at least 72 hours (3 days) is needed. I am uncertain on how long the Press Liazon will take to formally process your request. They may be a bit backlogged.

Well, my friend was unable to attend this year's AB(as was I). Does anyone know how my buddy can get a refund?


Also I've got to ask. Why in the world was AB scheduled on the same weekend as Passover and Easter?
