Alright. Not a happy camper, guys.
« on: May 27, 2008, 12:52:56 am »
Alright. For MONTHS I've been emailing exhibitors@kumoricon.org about a contract for the AA. And for MONTHS I have not received a reply.

I got in contact with the 'new' coordinator, and was now just told the Artist Alley is completely full. Why isn't this up on your website? Why was the email I repeatedly sent my inquiries to (which was ON YOUR WEBSITE) ignored? (I have spam-guard off totally, and set to receive ANYTHING from that email, so I know it's not me). And when I emailed for an Exhibitors table (Heck I'd gladly GET one if I could!) was I also ignored? This has happened since Sakuracon, heck, since before.

I've attended Kumoricon for two years. The first year I won the mascot contest, the second I loved the con enough to return. It really is a good convention and I wish to come back for my third year. But this lack of communication is making it very VERY irritating. I already have my hotel paid for, and my trip down ready to go.

I've been asked to do several panels on both copic coloring and digital coloring, and I cannot do this if I don't have a table (Or booth) prepared to sell at in the meantime.

Now I ask you - Are there ANY of you with tables, interested in selling yours? Any of you not going and willing to let me buy a table from you?

And if not, is there ANY one above the Artist Alley Coordinator I can talk to about this? I'm getting tired of being ignored on this topic, or reaching people who "Have no idea". I'd really like the website to reflect what the AA Coordinator (Lori Collins I believe) has told me, so no one else has to get upset over finding this out the hard way.


Ignore the plea for a table, by the way. Looks like that issue seems to be resolved (I hope?).

There is nobody else above me. I am the Exhibits Hall Manager, which puts me in charge of both Exhibits Hall and the AA. I please check your PMs on DA, where we had been conversing previously. I sat down and did the math, and I'm not, indeed full as of yet. Which is why it's not on the website yet. I was being overly cautious in my reply to you earlier.

I have, however been having serious e-mail issues, and as I don't check these forums as often as I should, I was more unaware of the issues than I should have been. This is my fault and I will work to resolve them as quickly as possible.

I thank everyone for their patience in this matter. Really, I do. I know it is frustrating.

EDIT: I have finally got my e-mail issue fixed. After giving it some thought, I will expand the AA. I will be replying to all AA inquiries on Monday, when I return from A-kon.

Neo, you are a doll and I know something will happen that will make it that you will be with us this year.  I'm sending lots of hugs your way this year.  We will see each other at the show.  You've been going to this show for a while now so I'm sure something good will come out of this mess.  *kisses*

I'm sorry... but...  Professionally, it's VERY poor form to say that 'No one else is above me'... I'm pretty sure there's someone higher than 'Exhibits Hall Manager'.  Your status isn't the important thing here... The important thing is just making sure everything gets taken care of properly.  That's just a personal opinion.

She's talking about her role and position in regards to the Exhibits Hall and Artist Alley. She's not stroking her own ego or flaunting her status. Her statement was within context, considering the specific words used in the thread's initial post.

Less fuel to the fire, folks.

Responding to a statement made almost 10 days ago is kicking up dust and basically adding more fuel to the fire.  Perhaps that's what Lori meant, but that is not how it came across to me.  Sorry if you see otherwise.

Let's just hope that eventually things will be taken care of, shall we?  :)
