So the convention is just around the corner (this Saturday)! I am currently both horribly excited and horribly nervous. That being said, there is something important I should bring to people’s attention:
Somehow, people have been able to continue to per-register for Anime St. George 2012 even though pre-registration has been closed since September 17th…and the button is not even on the web page anymore.
There are a few different ways how this could be happening:
- People adding badges to cart before closing and simply paying for them after closing.
- People seeing a cached version of the web page which still has the pre-reg button available.
Now, I do not mind people pre-registering a three days after closing; that is fine and doable. However, having people pre-register three days BEFORE the convention is not. This is because I print everything out a head of time and pack it all up to be transported a few days before.
Luckily, I have not started printing out the pre-registration badges until today so there is no harm done. HOWEVER, I will and have deleted the Paypal button all together to prevent anyone from pre-registering after closing. If anyone else somehow (though I doubt it) manages to send in pre-registration after last night will be refunded.
OkamiCorner is back and this time, A x e l – F is cosplay for Peach Days 2012!
If you have been on our website recently (www.animesg.net) you may have noticed that everything has been updated and the layout is now featuring a completely new design. For those who are interested, here is a list of all the changes made:
Design & Layout
- Lighter color scheme implemented
- All graphics change to follow “Ink Splat” design
- Menu relocated to the side bar
- Mouse over on link effect
- Social Media buttons added under side bar menu
- Special Programing Page added
- This page will feature special programing such as video game tournaments, demos, and other notable activities.
- Volunteers Page Removed
- Schedule Page updated (Includes Programing Schedule and Screening Schedule)
- Masquerade Page Updated (Includes Online Masquerade Registration)
- Contact Us form changed so that people may submit questions/comments for OkamiCorner via email
- Twitter Button on side bar leads to OkamiCon Twitter instead of Anime SG. However, Anime SG is still streamed to the front page until we officially change over to OkamiCon Utah.
- Advertising Link for some reason will not open in new tab in Fire Fox. The issue is currently being looked into. You may still open it in a new tab manually in Fire Fox and it has no problems opening in Internet Explorer.
- Masquerade Online signups have been extended until September 15th. You can still always sign up at the convention as always.
A x e l – F goes out on location for the first time! Watch her coverage of a parade for Pioneer Days! Come hang out at the next upcoming parade and you might be lucky enough to get one of her awesome post cards! 😀
