This can only end badly....I wouldn't just throw this info out to just anyone, I feel like more hate-mail than actual productive feedback is going to come of this.

^ So much that. While I did have my disputes, I wouldn't complain unless I plan on attending Katsu again ( on the rocks for me ) and or it's confirmed that they will be back again next year as well ( complain to Katsu about the double booking and not informing anybody about it if anything )

They won't be back next year. They're going to Dallas.

This sounds like a really good way to antagonize a lot of people. Take complaints up with the Gaylord by all means, but try and do it in a reasonable and respectful manner, and don't harass the BBYO leaders even if they won't be back next year. Yes, there were a lot of problems this weekend but personally I'd much rather us Katsucon goers handle it as classily as possible.

I don't know if I'd post their phone numbers. Even if the information is easily found, this can only end in fire.

Yes but in all seriousness. Let Katuscon and the Hotel Deal with it. So far the internet has been doing rumor mill. If you have any real concerns of what happened. Contact Katsucon or the Hotel if you were a registered guest there.

The "girl incident" is BBYOers ripping off a Scanty cosplayer's top, exposing her. I don't have any confirmation of this aside from people on Tumblr who said they saw it.

Some Tumblr posts alluded to a second incident, but I don't know any details about it.

I don't know if contacting BBYO ourselves is the best course of action. Katsucon has legal staff that deal with stuff like this. I might send a polite letter to BBYO but please for the love of all things holy don't make us look bad!We need to let our tempers cool down and keep a level head. Don't say anything you would regret or that would hurt Katsucon!

Reported. No matter the issues with their staff, their info shouldn't be publicly blasted like this. If people wanted to contact them to complain they would do so on their own terms.

Exposing their info publicly like this disgraces everyone on this forum and solves absolutly nothing. It's people like you who also add to the problem rather than solve it. Sure BBYO kids acted improperly but so did COSPLAYERS.

There are select few at fault, not their entire staff, not our entire fandom. It happened, it's past. I feel terribly about the people who were victimized, but this is not the way to go about solving anything.

Hopefully the mods will see fit to close this thread or even delete it.

THIS. I'm glad someone said it. I don't think its appropriate to post their information publicly like this.

Technically it's also against cosplay.com's TOS to post real names, numbers, and personal information of others (even though it can be found publicly). but I wholeheartedly agree that the ones who SHOULD be contacted is the Gaylord/Marriott directly. Unfortunately there were problems and members of both conventions behaved poorly and disrespectfully to the other and it's a shame to have read and see all over the place. i can't even imagine how the victims felt or what they went through.
