what? I have NEVER had one problem with staff and find that Otakon is the highlight of my entire year. I save for MONTHS to go. I even sacrifice other conventions to go.
Though personally I don't attend much events, so I don't know how they are. I go to meet up with friends, cosplay, and walk around A LOT to get to better places for pictures but the Artist Alley and Dealers room, the two places I go mostly, I've never met rude staff. As long as you had your badge turned around...? maybe I just got lucky? But yeah, already planning to fly this year instead of drive and SO EXCITED already!
