Panels & et cetera / Pro-Bending Over as of 2019?!
« Last post by PicklePet on November 18, 2019, 09:59:30 am »
For any who were not there this year: It was announced that this was the last year of pro-bending.
They didn't announce the reason, so I asked the wonderful organizer Ari(sp) why this was and she told me that most of all it is because of a decline in interest to participate. They do not have enough contestants to fill a full panel.
Therefore - if you desperately want this panel to continue and would be willing to commit to competing despite possible schedule conflicts, I would suggest writing to kumoricon's head of programming. I don't know if it would be enough to bring it back since they've already made the decision, but it would just be such a shame to see it disappear.
I cannot express how much I love panels that interact with their audience, and having the opportunity to participate is just about the pinnacle of that. It's such a perfectly clever adaption of what's in the show, but even if you don't like the show I believe you can appreciate spectating it - it's an improved version of dodge ball with several layers of strategy and teamwork added that you will never be able to see or play anywhere else.
It was born here at Kumoricon, I pray it doesn't die here.

Cosplay / Kumoricon 2019 - Photo dumps!
« Last post by PicklePet on November 18, 2019, 07:29:58 am »
A thread for sharing your 2019 photos! : )

Here's mine!
https://photos.app.goo.gl/nBxCH4MyCdAAoXdj6
Thank you to every one who let me take a picture of you, I love all of your costumes!! Unfortunately I'm rusty with my camera and I took a LOT of crummy pictures, I'm SO sorry if I botched you. OTL And to many MANY more people that I did not take pictures of - I loved your costumes too, but either didn't know your character, was in a hurry, thought you looked busy, or was just feeling too shy to ask.
P.S. I was steampunk Hatsume Mei/Hollow Knight's handler, if you remember me. :3

Also I'm going to post links to photo dumps I see on the facebook group.

PicklePet: I completely agree with what you're saying. I'll definitely work on posting here more often and hopefully, we can work on making this place more active.
And I relate to what you said about Facebook. There's nothing wrong with getting likes, and I often like to receive them, but as friendly as they can be, it means so much to get an actual reply, and at Facebook, I wish they'd come more frequently.


Also, I love the Lloyd and Genis chibis you have. Those are awesome. It's always nice to encounter a fellow Tales fan.

General Kumoricon / Re: Not a lot of activity here--are we chatting somewhere else?
« Last post by PicklePet on November 14, 2019, 08:31:15 pm »
Waah shy but if you see this you know it's me. ; P Feel free to say 'Hi Pickle,' and don't mind my social awkwardness. I'm kinda quiet in person but a chatterbox in writing.


I'm glad you have a bigger net of influence than me, Washougal. ^u^

@Paladin: Hooray, another believer! There is a link to it in the last sentence of homepage, but a bigger hook certainly would help.It's true, also I feel like the ability to 'like' posts removes incentive to come up with thoughtful responses, you can only look through one giant chronological feed of every post made - meaning your post will only be seen by the people who happen to be looking at the group at the moment and the people that check every single notification in their feed. Facebook is convenient for being tapped into Kumoricon's announcements if you're already on there, but in terms of talking to people...

I just feel like this would be one of the best tools for keeping the community connected in between cons - and isn't that connection one of the biggest appeals of the event in the first place? If you like going to the con to meet cool people interested in the same stuff, or just to bask in that atmosphere - you should totally be on here!Don't be afraid of posting and not getting a reply, don't get discouraged from checking back every now and then, don't be afraid of replying to some one weeks or months after their post - worthwhile things take persistence. If you find the courage to take the first step, others will follow! (Tap into your inner protagonist! lol)
That's my pitch.
Have a great con y'all, I'll see you on the other end.
25
I relate to how you all feel. I miss this place being active as much as you do.
Several years ago, I posted a topic here asking if the message board was still important, because for most of the year, people weren't posting that often.
When I did, a lot of people responded saying it was, claiming it was the best way to organize gatherings, and they were right. At that time, the board was very active when the con was getting close and right after it ended, since people were posting pictures.
Back then, you think the forums would've continued to remain active that way, and it's sad that they haven't. I still prefer forums over social media sites, because it's so much easier to arrange events. That was why I was able to organize three Team Haberkorn dinners in the past, and when I tried to arrange one two years ago on Facebook, no one responded, because it's impossible to keep topics there organized.
Maybe it's just me, but I think a lot of the inactivity has to do with the con's website not having an immediately visible link to it. While you can still find a a link there when you put the arrow on where it says "Get involved," I think people are more likely to visit if they see the word Forums on main menu.
I still prefer message boards over social media, because topics are more organized and so many Facebook pages tend to be very hostile.
I agree with making efforts to make this place more active and like the ideas that PicklePet and Washougal_Otaku have and there are a lot of members here that I miss talking to.
One thing I think would be good to suggest to the staff would be to have the forums listed on the main menu instead of a sub-link. It was approximately at that time when it became less active and I think a more noticeable link would really help.
I want to see this place become more active again, and it would be depressing if it got closed. Hopefully, we can make it happen.

Well, I'll be running the Otaku 25+ panel on Sunday, so I can include the forums in my "meeting agenda."

Yaas! My delivery will probably be awkward but I'll tell people as I'm taking pics that I'll be posting them here. XD I'm not sure how else to tastefully bring it up, maybe I'll whip up a little badge and wear it on my backpack or something. Something like, "Revive The Forum" over the Kumoricon logo.

^ I like this idea.  We can also try to spread the word at the con itself; I'm not even sure how many of the current attendees even know we have a forum.
