Just a quick update...

The "Bad Jokes by the CEO" is still listed on the Day 2 AX schedule from 5:00-5:30 pm at the LACC Room 411.

It may be a real panel after all.

Hopefully, it's still some sort of a bad joke, and a temporary filler for the schedule, but it doesn't look like it right now.

Since it kind of looks like this panel is really going to happen, I'm just hoping at this point someone goes and writes a blog post about what happens there.

Also, thanks for the heads up about the Rally Car races, Hakaider. Even though I'm not participating in any gatherings affected, I'm making sure to stay far away from that dust/smoke/noise cloud at those times.

We might have an issue with the bevy of photographers if they don't pick up their badges before opening their camera cases. I was looking for other information and came across the following camera policy regarding the X-Games:

Quote:
No commercial photography is allowed without a credential. Camcorders or any other audio/visual equipment is prohibited unless authorized prior to arrival. Specifically, the following equipment is not permitted: Lenses greater than three and one half inches in length, telephoto or zoom lenses of any kind, interchangeable lenses of any kind, monopods or tripods or flash equipment of any kind. All wireless equipment must be cleared by ESPN.
This is another piece of information that could cause a mess if the general public isn't aware. Did anyone at the SPJA copy & paste the X-Games event rules for people that are in the Luxe/J.W. Marriott?

No problem, Shinigamiyoko.

Yeah, that would be one heck of a blog post, that's for sure. (If it's written by a Marc Perez's associate, the article is very likely to be very sugar coated.)


I forgot to put this in here, so here's the X-Games Schedule for the Rally car race, and the other events:


X-Game Schedule:

I'm really really sorry for the outburst, Freight. I just couldn't help myself from laughing hard.

The SPJA? Printing out a copy that warns the cosplay photographers regarding the photography rules for the X-Games? And handing it out to the people staying at the Luxe/J.W. Marriott? Honestly, how likely do you think that will happen? 100% or 10%? The SPJA won't even respond to the cosplayers begging for a map from the SPJA for their cosplay gatherings, and we were left to work it out & plan it out ourselves. (So I must apologize, if I sound very skeptical.)

When I last checked the AX official website, I still haven't seen an official notice telling people about the X-Games. (This means that there are going to be some AX attendees who won't find out about the X-Games until Day 1 of AX.)

I will say this though, Hcoregamer00 has been trying hard to work this out with the other photographers. I just wish he got more support from the rest of the SPJA.

I think someone asked about that too somewhere. So far, we didn't get an answer yet.

At the AX forums, the "Cosplay Repair Station" thread hasn't gotten a response since July 18, 2011.

http://community.anime-expo.org/inde...howtopic=14891


I would recommend bringing your own cosplay repair kit, just in case we don't hear anything until Day 1 of AX.

I think this could also be a problem regardless if you have an AX badge. The creds that they'll look for are X-Games issued press credentials.

Actually if you are in public space they have no right to stop you, since you are not part of their private event.

Since we were told we should walk through their event with our badges, they would have every right to stop us. The X-Games, as an event closed to the public without tickets, can enforce their own on-site policies. Even though we're guests, their rules would need to be followed within their areas.

I think this part of the ACLU's post would apply:

Quote:
When you are on private property, the property owner may set rules about the taking of photographs. If you disobey the property owner's rules, they can order you off their property (and have you arrested for trespassing if you do not comply).
We would be in the X-Games ticketed area, which would be legally seen as their property as long as the event occurs.

LMAO, the SPJA post anything useful regarding X Games info or rules on their homepage or somewhere easily accesible to anyone (ie NOT on the forums)? Wow, I got a good laugh from that!

I'll make sure to stay away from the South Hall entrance as much as possible on Sunday...

It's a shame that Hcoregamer isn't getting any support from the rest of the higher ups, he's one of the few people in SPJA that seem to be doing their best to address the fan concerns unlike other people that just parrot off your gripes or just generally douchebags if you so much as speak ill of AX *cough*Peter Ngo and Ren-tan*cough*

I figure I'll make a cross-post here: http://www.cosplay.com/showpost.php?...8&postcount=18

Should clear up the usage of the west hall at least. That is, if you believe my conclusions.


Also, I try to be diplomatic with people. Usually flipping someone off will make them less inclined to help you and/or change their beliefs to see a contrary point of view. It's human nature.

Applies to the events or event space themselves, but the not the public access ways or such.

は~い AX MAPS GET DA ZE

I think we have the full convention center. South Hall is crowded as usual, but it doesn't look like they changed anything from last year over there.

Thanks for posting up the maps, SleepyD! I found an AX Live episode from a few weeks back that also seems to suggest that X-Games won't be using up the West Hall (around 17:00). Someone asked about how much of West Hall and South Hall will be blocked off by the rally track, and the person from AX says West Hall won't be blocked off for X-Games, only Gilbert Lindsay Plaza, which is outside West Hall. I also feel like I read somewhere that X-Games is only using the space outside the convention center, not inside, but I don't remember the source.

Yeah hopefully, there is only some overlap in the dates so x games might only be using it on the dates that AX isn't; from those maps it seems like they aren't using it (or aren't using much of it) during AX itself.
