Well, I meant just meeting there. I don't expect the One Piece group will be very large, so it shouldn't cause much of an issue. We'll probably relocate elsewhere.

Should I change it?

Definitely change it, at least to the 2nd floor above the lobby. And just meet there with no intent to stay; definitely plan on going somewhere else.  The 2nd floor this year will be busier than last year, so it's going to be a constant uphill battle for staff to keep it clear. We don't want to give the Hilton hotel staff a reason to step in again; they tend not to be as gentle about it.

The One Piece group may be expected to be small, but it will be a more positive experience for *you* if you avoid meeting in the lower lobby, because you won't have people asking you every two minutes not to stand around.

Jamiche, I'm hoping that's what you or Operations staff would say. I realize you're pretty busy this week and probably don't want to deal with too much of this right now.

Why thank you! I'm glad I was on the mark.  I witnessed two photo shoots last year and went to Rant and Rave, so I heard what the problems were at the Hilton last time.

(I fear it's going to burst at the seams this year...)


P.S. -

Another cosplayer suggested outside the ballroom entrance in the basement for a place to have a photo shoot, citing that it's much less busy down there and it has open corners where people can be without blocking traffic.  It worked pretty well for last year's Smash Bros. photo shoot, but I don't know how much foot traffic there'll be this time.  Would you consider that a viable location this year?

Okay, thanks! I guess then:

One Piece, Sunday at 8:00 am, meet on the 2nd floor above the lobby, will move elsewhere.

My Only concern is some of the Registration lines and the Dealers Hall lines go down that way. Loitering anywhere in the hotel area is a problem and is not generally allowed... but if you are quick and not blocking
any sort of traffic, what we don't know and don't see wont kill us, but be prepared to move if a Hotel or K-staffer feels its a hazard...

Director Park is really only a block and a half away and has a covered space... since we will have the whole thing to ourselves on Saturday and Sunday... I will continue to insist that you consider it as a viable option! ^__^ plus it is a really great backdrop!

What, reg and dealer's hall?... Neither of those were anywhere near the ballroom basement last year.  Reg was two floors up and dealer's hall was all the way around the corner, on the other side of the building, in the downstairs parking lot.  It's a complicated layout, but I'm not sure how either line would extend down there.

Oh well. I'm working on moving to the south park blocks. If no one else answers I'll make an executive decision by tomorrow.  They'll still know where to meet before we tromp off to the location.

That's all right. Don't worry; we'll stay away from the major traffic areas.  But this is Oregon, and it'd be nice to have a desperation option if it's raining outside.

My costume, for one, practically dissolves in water...

HIYA! I'm here on Teddy_Bearxx's behalf from the Pokemon thread...

Since it's mention that location is needed by today the 30th, Teddy_Bearxx can't get online tonight but she will be able to get on sometime tomorrow. We wanted to let you know that we WILL/HAVE changed our Photoshoot location since PS will be busy with other "public events". But I actually don't have the full details, so if you could give us a day or so before you make it finalized, Teddy will be on to let you know the full details, Thank you!

If its too vague then take it off all together. I have things I have to do for set up for the con on Friday that ended up being at different times than I expected. IE I am busy from 8am - 330pm, then from 545pm - 9pm. But I don't know for certain if I'll have the time in between things on Friday, and thus have to wait (and force the rest of my group to wait) till after all my duties are finished.

I think the Hotel would like to keep all lobby's clear, the main building and the Executive Towers. Maybe panda can add that in, but the deadline to add photoshoots was at 11:59P.M. last night :/ But it's her decision

Then that's all on you guys. It wouldn't be that big of a deal if you met in the main building and then just asked the people there if they wanted to move to the tower if it's too crowded, you don't have to officially change it. I'm afraid I'm trying not to change the schedule any more unless it's a typo, or double entry, or otherwise something that I made a mistake on.

Meeting is okay, as long as it not too long.  Just making it clear that photoshoots are not, since there was planning for a shoot at the Executive Tower.

So, I'm not entirely sure if this is the correct place to air this, but I need to say it none the less.  The Haruhi Suzumiya photoshoot was scheduled, in this thread and at the info booth, for 2pm in the Second Floor Lobby.  When I got there, after some time, only 6 people and no photographers had arrived.  One of the attendants then mentions to me that whoever had been in charge of it had changed it, either late the previous night or early that morning, to 11am.  I see no posts on this forum (not just this topic, but this forum) about the change.  I saw no updates at the info booth.  I find this incredibly rude, as did the other cosplayers there. 
Obviously I know nothing can be done about this now, but it was extremely thoughtless of them to apparently only update their friends, rather than remembering that it was an open photoshoot

the melancholy of haruhi suzumiya photoshoot was ORIGINALLY 11am but someone posted it to be 2pm when i told them that 11am would have been easier and i guess they changed it to 2pm. things WERE HECTIC THIS YEAR i AM STAFF and i HAD NO WAY to go down there and vouch for them at all! you can blam it on me if you like but please please REMEMBER that we were all confused at con this year because of all the hectic things going about with the understaffing of staff, pioneer square, and other personal problems!

next year i promise things will be more organized~! sorry and thank you for your patience!

The Haruhi shoot turned into a disaster.  We changed it to 11am but weren't sure if it got changed.  When I showed up at 11am to see if anyone was there only a couple people showed.  One of them confirmed it had been sucessfully changed to 11 so we just headed out and did a little shoot on our own with our own cameras and such.  At 2pm my friends and I heard everyone showed up for the shoot saying the information desk said it was then and not earlier.  We sadly couldn't make it at that time. 

All and all, it was just a bunch of confusion and mass communication error.  We're going to plan better for next year.  Compared to the last couple years though...this year went pretty well.  I am sorry though this happened.

Don't mean to butt in, but remember: it doesn't matter how "official" something is if people don't know about it.  If you change something at the last minute, there are going to be lots of people who don't check because they've been planning on the original time & day for quite awhile. As you can see by people sigs, lots of cosplayers plan far in advance for which day they'll wear each of their costumes.
