Anyway, to avoid confusion, please confirm

the Cosplay Gathering Host Gathering
Day 0
West Hall Entrance
7 pm

It will give a chance for gathering hosts to check out locations and make sure everyone knows where the location is.

Ahh ^^', I don't know if alot of people could make it to that. Majority of people make it there on day one man, plus the hall won't be open that late then. Pre registration is from three from about five or six, and it's on a Wensday. The halls not open that day either, so you would basically be standing outside the whole time. Are you sure this needs to be added?

It's probably gonna get tougher as more people will probably use their facebook instead of signing up for other websites to find cosplay gatherings. And it looks like neither of us are looking at the ACParadise forums...
Last year the Facebook gatherings were left untouched for weeks, even before the convention. I'll make an ACParadise if its needed. The AX forums never clean up the page so you'll have gatherings from 2009 listed there. Last year eehen you googled the gathering list, the cosplay.com one came up first so they always come here.

The list must be confirmed a few days before the con, so they can print the list out and hand them out at the actual con. Any updates from gatherings were added onto an app they come out with every year to live updates.

I think so...The idea isn't to give a tour but an opportunity for first time hosts to ask last minute questions to a live person who knows something about the area, especially those who want to host gatherings indoors. It would also be an opportunity for hosts to borrow stuff like megaphones from each other and coordinate locations if two groups are scheduled for the same location (example, sites 2 and 3 are large enough for two or three groups while site 4 can only hold one).

The time is based on when I think I would get my badge on day 0.

Hey! I would like to reserve the Gintama Gathering on Day 4 @ 12PM Outside of the West Hall Entrance. It was an awesome turn out this year and there was a unanimous agreement to have another one next year. I expect it to have an even greater turn out next year!

Hey guys! Mouse here. Though I am not staff for this upcoming AX, I decided to help out a bit because some things are getting a bit confusing with two list. SO! I turn to my handy-dandy notebook!

Wait. No.

HANDY-DANDY GOOGLE DOCS.

My one true love.

Anyway! I have set up some list that look very much like the list from, you guess it, Anime Expo 2013. No spreadsheets, just regular google docs. Our lovely Resident-chick is gonna have most of the control over it, being able to update and such. I'm just here to look pretty~

Anyway! For all updates, cosplay.com and the AX forums, I suggest just looking at the google doc. Hopefully it'll help out

Day 1
Day 2
Day 3
Day 4

Hoping this will help clear up any confusion that will come from having the same subject in two places. We wanna get ALL the gatherings, after all, and keep everyone informed.

I'll be hosting the OFF (Mortis Ghost) gathering on day 2, however, I'm not sure where it should be.. I'm certain it'll be fairly small (at most 20 people) any suggestions as to where it should be held?

I would suggest site 4 indoors next to Kentia Hall, but it was so overrun with people eating lunch that I was surprised the Disney gathering happened at all. Site 9, Gilbert Lindsay Plaza near the shuttle bus pickup doesn't get really crowded, and it is in close proximity to the big gatherings that happen at site 1. Site 10 seems to also be a popular spot with the Touhou cosplayers if for any better reason that it is in the shade.

Your group might get lost if you pick South Hall indoors or out...
