Kumoricon Staff Appreciation Thread
« on: August 21, 2011, 07:07:54 pm »
Here, we can give thanks to all those wonderful people who make our beloved Kcon happen! Send warm fuzzies to a particular staff member who helped you out or to all of them! Help make their day and give them a shout out!

I would like to give a big thank you to all the people who volunteer their time to make Kcon run as smoothly as it can! I would also like to thank the mods who deal with us forum children XD

Thanks for making this board!

I definitely just want to say thanks to all the volunteers and staff who work so hard on this con. :3 I know how stressful it can be (I see how stressed you guys seem at con! o.o). And I know that this whole month has probably been crazy stressful already!

I can only imaging how nerve-wracking and frustrating it would be to have so many people demanding and complaining about the schedule, dealers hall, check in, etc. (no offense people! lol). You guys are working so hard purely as volunteers, and I know we all appreciate it. :3 We just get so excited! >w<

But really. Without you guys this convention wouldn't be possible, so thanks so much!

You are all appreciated! Your efforts are not going unnoticed. It may seem like it (I definitely know the ins and outs of a thankless job), but you are all just so appreciated. Thank you!

This thread is nice, also at con sometimes a staffer might need a kind word. Feel free to chat with any of us that aren't running to take care of something.
And now I'm a catgirl?

I think every one could stand to give a random staffer a high five and tell them how much the rock for doing what they do. I am officially planning to that for at least one staffer per day at the con.

I fully endorse this plan, and will aim to do it as well.

I'll just have to remember to give high fives with my good hand...not my gun-hand, haha

I shall try to remember to give out some high-fives
I think high-fives with the gun hand might be fun!

I think it's great that so many people are willing to work hard to make this con great, so

THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY MUCH!!!

Staff thank you for putting everything together on your own time. I know most of you probably have pretty busy lives. I know I would never be able to do it that is why you have so much of my respect. I want to support the cons I go to so I try to do that by spending lots of money.

Also thank you for putting up with us con-goers. I know we can be a handful at times. :)

This thread makes me a little teary-eyed.  Thanks for the love, everyone!

If you wanna make a staffers day, just give them a hug and a "thank you" :)

We'll even forgive any huggers for having con funk!

The staff was great. I really appreciated their directions and help when the rave, slightly anime dating game 18+ and the Roast of Zach were all in the same corner of the hallway @.@
They did a marvelous job keeping the lines in tact as best as possible and from what I saw there were no huge issues.

Thanks, guys :D

There was one girl that was staff that i really liked. I think her name was bunni. And there was jonny, who i hadnt seen in almost two years, and he was staff. And a huge thank you to the security staff members who kept most of the homeless people in check

Wanted to give a quick shout to all those who were working over at the Red Lion. Everything went smoothly. Wanted to apologize for drawing such a huge crowd on Saturday and blocking the doorway momentarily. >< I did not ever expect to have so many people there for the daily drawing. :)
The Yojis working over there were awesome!

Also, thanks to whoever set up the chair blockade, that was a great idea and seemed to help keep people out of the space during the closed hours.

I'd like to thank all the Panel staff that let me move my VIP seat to a place where my camera could be plugged in. I'm sure all my followers on youtube thank you as well!

First, a HUGE Thank you to the Maid Squad ladies who counted all of the Audience choice ballots for Cosplay. You ladies ROCK!

Next, a huge thank you to Deborah Stansbury and Sandi (and cohorts) who helped make Cosplay run beautifully.    :)

Finally, thank you to the rest of the staff who made sure that panelists had their stuff, that all staff members remembered to eat (guilty of forgetting to eat on Sunday until someone shoved food at me before I collapsed from low blood sugar) and for making Kumoricon run smoothly.  :D
