that would be nice as well. If people are like me then they might have a hard time sleeping during a con so being able to get there earlier would make it so much nicer.

Well, since you're over 18, the curfew ending earlier wouldn't really effect when you'd be able to get there unless you're physically attached to a minor. :P

xD so for minors we have to stay in our rooms from 12am to 4am?

and if we get caught just hangin around in the lobby what exactly would happen?O_o cause the lobby isnt really a restricted place i dont think, we could be there as just normal guests

I would guess the curfew would not affect anywhere that the public can go, so the lobby would probably not be affected. I kept pointing out to people that it made no sense in Kumoricon's earlier days to state that it has a "12am-4am curfew" when the con is not even open past 2am. Finally the policies got changed to eliminate that one area of confusion.

Everyone should keep this in mind, though: http://www.portlandonline.com/police/index.cfm?a=193643&c=46713

Though I am not sure if that applies to hotel lobbies and such.

i think we cant be in areas considered public like the streets or what not, if we are in a fairly controlled environment that is well looked after (like lets say... a hotel!) i think its fine...

City curfew laws apply to areas that are public property. Even though they keep it open to the public, the hotel is private property and they can act how they like.

I have yet to find a hotel that will actually send kids to bed just because they're hanging out in the lobby at 3am. Tell them to keep it down, stop throwing things, and moves for the cleaning staff sure but never "go to bed".

but basically i just cant enter con spaces like the gaming room till cerfew ends? D:

i dont see much problem with places like gaming room late at night... i mean it is also on the hotel wich is private property wich i dont think is braking the law, places like the the dealers room or the adult panels i can understand perfectly, even the video room D: but I dunno what harm it would really do to allow us acess to the gaming after cerfew, granted i'm assuming that the gaming room is on the hotel property and does not require one to leave the hotel to acess it

The reason we close the game room to minors is because it allows us to remove a large portion of the people in the game room, then close, then clean up before we open again.  Kicking everyone out all at once when we're talking 40-60 people would be a nightmare.

Also, M-rated games.

I would laugh that by the time your 18 they have already tried the 24 hour con and it didn't work so they wont do it again.

Not necessarily, as the Artist Alley is not in a place where you need to have a badge--it's an area of the hotel open to the public.
