Thumbs up Does anyone have any GOOD remarks?

I don't understand why everyone has so many bad things to say about the con. I liked it. Does anyone have any GOOD things to say about it? Anything at all? Please? And one more thing- what ever happened to if you can't say something nice, dont' say anything at all?

I liked the AMVs. There was some really cool montages.

The proximity of the Wyndham to Wet-n-Wild was a bonus!!

yes...after i relized for some time. I did like it some. Just hated the location and the hotel layout. I didn't get to see the costume or cosplay contest. and the AMVs i've already seen. Chris Patton was really awesome to talk to and hang out. The dealers room! 0_0 my god it was huge! I loved it! they had way more stuff then the other cons...and accutal room. But I do have nice stuff about it. So what if at some points it was boring....isn't there always?

I just wish I could've hung out with u. everything in my mind was ::blah::

I really like the con, it's my first con...heh. I just wish I had people to hang out with...meh. I really liked the AMV contest. I also got to finnaly see Gundam SEED, which my friend Lukasz always tells me that I should watch. I'm getting used to asking people for pictures too...heh. There was so much great stuff in the dealers room. I just hope that next year, they pick a hotel with higher ceilings so i can wear my Sanosuke costume and bring my Zanbatou also. ^_^
My Zanbatou is about 8'10"...i'm only 5'2"...ehehe...

Good things about AFO4:

- Plenty of places to eat around the hotel.
- Good dealer's room.
- Quickdraw specifically. Panels and workshops in general had good content and were well distributed.
- Cosplay contest ran well. NO GONG (thank God).
- Hotel had a good cafeteria.

I would not mind it being there again next year. I just won't stay overnight.

Thank goodness there was no gong. If there was I might have died! And I am happy people had good things to talk about instead of only bad things.

And the Klines-aka the Tomoes- have a third child (also a cosplayer) named Aaron Halle/ He was born last month.

What's with the gong? Like I said...AFO4 is my first con so, i have no idea about any gong....heh
It was a great hotel to have it at, when i went there on Thursday, before the con, to get my badge, i couldn't believe how wide the hallway was...I was waiting in line for the cosplay contest and i looked up and the ceiling near the wall looked like it was leaking....someone should check that...=P

The gong was part of the cosplay contest at Metrocon. If the judges did not like your skit, they would gong you out of the stage before your skit was over.

I had a great time! My favoritie part about this con was being able to DRIVE MYSELF! *does a happy dance* That, and I got to make my little brother dance in his underwear, in front of a crowd *cackles*

Anyway, I think that there wasn't too much to complain about. That hotel was REALLY nice... Compared to the one they had at the Hilton 2 years ago (also a nice hotel, but not nearly as much space). Hrm... ^_^ Oh well, there's always next year, eh?
