  2. Update for anyone whose interested, i did in the end get Shirley Conrad on the cover of "Shada" i asked her about it if she knew anything, sadly nothing but i still wanted her to sign it, so she did it in silver smaller than most at the base of the cover, she complimented me on my "Detective skills" in doing my homework to find that out, now in say 10 - 70 years whoever inherrits that cover from me is going to be confused as to why this random woman has signed a dvd to which she has no apparent involvement.

  3. They should put something like that up on the walls so the proletariat can see it. One for autos and one for photoshoots. Honestly there are some pretty simple ideas that would be easy to do and help a lot, and I've no idea why they don't get done.

  8. I have seen pictures of the set up. It took a bit more space, but it worked.

  9. Oh for sure, the space is always a problem and worse this year. Not their fault that less halls were available, but you'd think they'd just invite less guests or sumfink. Ideally you'd get one dedicated hall for with all of the photoshoot areas, with plenty of room for queuing (and waiting). Also a larger area to fit all of the autograph desks in. Of course, hiring more halls means more expense, which means inviting more guests, selling more entry tickets, and generally just charging more. Possibly the best set up I've seen for photoshoots was at a con that I won't name because I'm a good boy (but it involved walking and stalking). I believe they had an outside company running it, and they used a large hall with 4 or 5 photo areas at one end. Each area had several different numbered queuing lines which went all the way across the hall. There was also an electronic screen saying who can go to which line - e.g. VIP tickets for guest x go to line 8, regular tickets for x go to 9, 10 and 11. Or something like that anyway. The flip side was that prices for photos were horrendous. Like, vomit-inducingly high. Also, I think the company ended up ripping a load of people off or something. Swings and roundabouts, innit?

  10. I think this event has shown they need to rethink how they deal with a few things but I think it was definitely affected by the reduced space and not having many viable options maybe.

  25. It's a shame she couldn't reveal any details, howevever minor or insignificant into the episode or her role. I wrestled with having her sign my 500 year diary, especially with the rest of the family signing the same page. It would have made it a proper family affair, but I decided against it. Looking back i should have just done it

  29. Yeah true. Like I say, I chalk it up to experience - while they certainly didn't help matters, I realised in hindsight I could have done everything I'd set out to do. Hope that like me, Showmasters take this year's Saturday into account. Doesn't help that this was the first summer con since 2019, so anticipation was always going to be huge. More than the Winter 2021 and Spring 2022 ones.

  30. This is definitely a very different company to what I remember from 2005-2010. Anyway - it's their forum, they have every right to delete whatever they want to. So.... OK. If a guest I want to meet turns up, I'll get a diamond pass, or a platinum pass, or whatever else. I can afford pretty much whatever they want to charge, to be honest. It's fine. But SM - if you expect me to pay top dollar, you'd better get your sh*t together. I'm willing to pay a lot of money, but I don't expect what I saw on Saturday.

  31. I know it's easy to make suggestions from the outside where I don't know what's practical or affordable ect, but one thing I have said for years is the fact that I think they need A4 laminated sheets for each dept with how it works. They can punch a hole in and put a chain/lanyard on so crew can attach it to their trousers/belts/wrist and consult it when they aren't sure. So for the auto area it could list it by guest type, Diamond & non diamond, and then under each list who to call when. So DP Guest Call DP Batch 1, Batch 1-2 ect then All DP's and VQ 1-30 and so on. Then you can list all the rules, like where Access go, what priority they have in the queue and so on. It doesn't need to be huge with tons of info but a basic 'this is how this area works' that crew and attendees can refer to might be helpful. I'm pretty sure they did get handbooks in the past but unfortunately you can't make them read them. Having a laminated cheat sheet on them on the day is more accessible for everyone as people can refer to it in the moment. I've also said I think video's would help, both for crew and attendees. They can do video guides on VQ's, what may be the most likely outcome with headliners ect and they can post them once in a while so people can see them all year.
