    http://celebpics.fics-n-pics.me.uk/lfccscheduler2018.html Yes I'm crew, yes I occasionally pop up here with a mod hat, but this is absolutely not official and just something I've been tinkering with. I will do my best to keep it updated as new versions of the schedule are released, but I have to do the data entry manually (and it's taken from the release until now to get the initial version in, even with my sister helping enter times) Just click the boxes next to your planned activities and it will give you a filtered schedule with just where you need to be. It is sorted according to the advice we give people on here with overlaps - ie go to the event ENDING first - but with long overlaps this might not be accurate depending on your batch number. Red background is the stuff currently missing (taken only from eventbrite listings so may not be 100%), green text is free talks If you have any feedback please let me know (my css and javascript are quite rudimentary so I won't necessarily be able to improve things but I'd still like to know!)

    This is a thank you post, but if anyone does have any other comments remember to phrase them in a constructive manner and don't be mean, remember to be polite and that crew are volunteers, they work under very trying circumstances and many have no customer/retail experience so aren't used to dealing with people in this manner I did 3 days at LFCC again this year and not once did I see any negatives about the crew, everyone I interacted with were polite and friendly, and remained that way even when having to deal with a lot of people who don't understand how events like this work and ask question after question that I would consider silly. Shout out the crew who rushed over to sort out Tennant's tardis shoot today and got everything working properly (no fault of the crew who were there) and back on track. You allowed my to get an awesome photo with David that will quickly become one of my favourites. Thank you to the crew running the sales desk in general and the Manager (My apologies, my brain is fried and I can't remember your name) for coping with grace when a mass of people descended upon them after Tennant's announcement, from what I saw whilst I was there trying to sort out our ticket oopsie you all kept calm despite you all having the same problems we were accessing the tickets, and thank you to the Sales Desk manager in particular for helping @evilfairieand myself sort our Duchovney ticket issue and refunding them with speed and without issue, you helped us go from an enjoyable but stressful day worrying we had massively overspent to being able to forget about it and marvel in the awe of meeting Tennant and Smith in particular. To all the crew who worked LFCC this weekend, from the ones I know, to the ones I see there all the time and everyone else, thank you. These events can't happen without you and you all worked your socks off this weekend. It really is a hard job to do, things go wrong because nothing in life is perfect and a machine as big as LFCC is always going to have issues here and there but you all work to sort it out, to help people with issues, and you put up with some s***ty attitudes whilst you do it. Thank you to the mods, especially those who have been on here when they shouldn't, as they should have been resting and recovering Thank you again to you all for giving us an awesome weekend.

    Most of my autographs were signing the photoshoots I got which I'll post in the other thread. Continuing my theme from last year some of you may recall: I got Tom Welling to sign my Chris Reeve letter, which he said he would remember for a long time. I had the unexpected bonus of explaining to John Schneider why I asked him about Chris Reeve in his free talk. When I showed him the letter he said he felt humbled and spontaneously posed for photo with it too. He may have died in 2004 but clearly the impact he had on Smallville's cast is still there, much as it is on me nearly 20 years after receiving this. Such was the nature of a brilliant and genuinely good man.

    Hi all Well that was a interesting night :-) Here are some of my thoughts the morning after :-) I think if you and others re read the post i made last week about this announcement you will see all that i say in it is true , and the "Hype" is very much of its own making by some of the fans and not ours, we just told it just how it is . Here are the words from the post we used to announce this big guests announcement "Ok we thought this was not ever going to happen and we just closed it…" Fact "On Wednesday we have a big guest announcement and it is legendary! "Again its a fact The fact that we had the guest announcement on this day and that the guests is in fact legendary , in the Dr Who community he is a guest that no one though would ever do events , he is not a background guest he is the first Doctor of the new show AND HAS NEVER DONE A SIGNING A COMIC CON ANWERE IN THE WORLD EVER "This will be something that people will talk about for years and look back and say this was the show where it happened." Again total Fact, the First ever event that Christopher Eccleston has agreed to attend to meet the fans and sign autographs and have photographs take with fans "So join us at 7 pm on Wednesday when we will announce someone that will make so many of you fans happy.” Again this is a fact many fans are happy people that love Dr Who and Christopher’s other film work which there is a solid body of work. This event is looking to be our best Comic Con “EVER” Again we feel this to be totally true , we know what offers we have out with guests we are hoping to close and the demand for the guests that we have booked this year are all showing that they will all sell out so we know the event is going to be a sell out event and the guests we have booked and are boing also look like they will all sell out also so we know we have the budget we need to go and book many more big guests for this years show and as such we do feel this years event will be our biggest one year , again all facts not “Hype" "Here are some clues:” "They are a lead;" Fact "They have never been to a comic con or signing event where they have signed or done photo ops anywhere in the world ever;" Fact "Its someone we never thought we would get to one of our events let alone any event anywhere;" Fact "This is a very important guest in our hobby and this will most likely be their only event that they will attend;” Fact we do think this is the case "Many many of the fans will need this person's autograph to complete their collection.” total Fact for all Dr who fans "Ok that’s it no more - its just too exciting :-D” Fact we are all excited here everyone of us as we all want to meet him 'As an extra bonus - the first person to have liked this post and correctly guess the guest will get a free autograph from this guest!” Fact one lucky person did win 'One last thing if we get 500 likes on this post which helps get the word out we will announce more than one guest on Wednesday :-)” Fact we did post up several guests last night "Get your guesses in now!” So nowhere do I feel we hyped it up where there is any untruths in any way We never implied that it was Harrison Ford or any guests in any way other than the facts at hand. Some call this "Hype” we call it promotion and also some fun , its how we get everyone that’s Into comic cons to know we have a big guest announcement and so no one misses that these guests are attending this years event. The fact that we have sold out around 50% of the tickets we have to offer for Christopher shows that the way we have promoted this and the pricing and the demand is what we would expect for a big guests announcement. Its not like we have not done this before its what we have done sins we have had forums and Facebook so we have not acted in any way different. One other thing and again this has been the same from day one , one fans A list guests is sometimes not another fans A list guest we are all into different things and that’s and that’s cool and expected as we are all very different , but this fact needs to be respected as just because you don’t feel a guest is what you might call an A list it does not make it a fact they are or not as again its all down to your thoughts so no one can say really what is or is not a A list guest. Its like saying whats the best all time film ever made there is not one answer and can never be. Last night we all saw some really unneeded comments and at one point when our mods could not keep right up to speed on every post it turned into a angry mob which was quite amazing and just disrespectful. This is a hobby and its meant to be fun, its what makes us the same in this world we are all fans , fans of Comic Cons and meeting guests , but last night was incredible when small amount of people did not get the guests that was in there head felt like they could just stay anything with out any respect or restraint And it was a very small amount of people out of the 80 to 100,000 that will attend the Comic Con this year ad this small group just lost there inner control of there thoughts and just typed whatever they felt like with no respect to the other fans and the guests them selves. Its not what I what to see on here and its not what we would except to see from fandom over the years and its not something we can let go or want to let go as it leads to bulling and where the fans that are not loud get drowned out by the few , so our amazing mods will hide posts or ban people that are dominating there views or shouting people down and are not respecting each other or the guests that they are commenting in there thread as this place is for fans that respect to others and that are open to all religions all people of this planet and for having fun and enjoyment with fellow fans and that’s what Comic Con is all about. I hope this helps to explain our position and a little of what happened last night. We should all be a tolerant understanding and forgiving group of people and that’s What we intend to protect so we keep what is so amazing about comic con safe for many years to come. Thank you for reading this and for you understanding and all your support now and over the many years. Yours Jason and the team at Showmasters

    ...my friend just messaged me saying "hey, did you meet Tobin Bell once?" I did at LFCC in 2016, yes. She comes back with, "well that's funny, he just posted this picture and I swear this looks like you!" So Tobin Bell has posted this to his Twitter and Instagram and I'm in a state of shock! I don't know what the appropriate reaction is when Jigsaw himself posts an old picture of you to his social media out of the blue. I wasn't trained for this. But I swear I'm okay! Absolutely fine!

    No hugging today, but I did get carried away in a TARDIS.

    Quite a few: Tom Welling and John Schneider: both remembering me from different parts of the day during the duo photo op. Tom as I’d just seen him in the autograph queue and got him to sign my Chris Reeve letter, John as I’d asked a question during his talk. Had to go back round again when there was a camera fault and we repeated everything without skipping a beat (shows good memories they have with that level of attention to detail). Then seeing John again later in his autograph queue, seemed truly humbled reading the letter and we traded our Chris Reeve experiences despite not having met him. James Callis: brilliant too as we both think we look awful in photos but ours was surprisingly good, so we both felt smug about it. Jewel Staite: remembered my tweet to her from when she was announced, insanely good memory as that was back in February! She loved our photo too. Rose McIver: see here. Spent more time worrying about me that I was drinking enough as I cannot sweat below my neck... then apologised for channeling my mother! Meatloaf: said I was smart, funny AND a sex god (like him). Well “Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad” I guess...

    It feels boring posting the picture of the same thing after every convention but my Game of Thrones poster continues! Although shout-out to Rory McCann for staying in character after signing above Hafthor Bjornsson who plays the Mountain:

    For the regulars who had posts disappearing: you have done nothing wrong, I have simply removed the whole posting string caused by one user. It's been explained a number of times, but seeing nobody seems to believe if it's posted by users I will try with an admin account. Maybe that helps. Yes, guests sign contracts before the show. However, guests will only sign certain contracts with certain clauses. If an organiser will not allow them to cancel for work if necessary they will not sign the contract in the first place, and if the organiser puts up a fuzz when a guest has to cancel that news will travel and even more guests won't sign. It is very, very unfortunate to have a high calibre guest like Megan drop out that shortly before the show. Everyone understands those who booked to come to see her are frustrated. But frustration does not give you the rights to write what some users have posted here. We do have guests and agents coming on here. There is no chance any of these posts would be left to stand, and these posts could very well also put off guests from attending a show. We've already banned 4 people - though 2 of these accounts only seem to have signed up trying to cause trouble, so I probably shouldn't count them. There is a certain level where the mods can't work with pre-warnings anymore, StuartG tried that last night and it so did not work. All of these four happily ran over that line at lightning speed. The Terms and Conditions are very clear. If a guest cancels you will be refunded the cost of the guest specific activities, so talk, photo session, Diamond Passes. All other things like entry tickets and Gold Passes are not guest specific and will not be refunded. This is all over the shop and I really do not understand why some people seem to think they should be exempt from that rule because they don't agree with them. Again, I do apologize on behalf of SM to anyone being upset. SM will try to get Megan back, that's for sure. I realize this doesn't help anyone who booked non-refundable travel. But as it's been posted before, everyone on here would have advised not to book non-refundable travel if you are coming for one guest only.

    I'm considering giving them all a signed 8x10 of me. As I'm getting one from them, it only seems fair.

    "Ok we thought this was not ever going to happen and we just closed it...on Wednesday we have a big guest announcement and it is legendary! This will be something that people will talk about for years and look back and say this was the show where it happened. So join us at 7pm this coming Wednesday when we will announce someone that will make so many of you fans happy. This is shaping up to be our best Comic Con EVER Here are some clues: They are a lead; They have never been to a comic con or signing event where they have signed or done photo ops anywhere in the world..ever. This person is someone we never thought we would get to one of our events let alone any event anywhere. This is a very important guest in our hobby." See you all Wednesday

    I've felt so bad for the mods and community the last few days, they've done all they can to help with people's questions and worries, they don't deserve the entitled attitude of some of the posts I've seen. I have multiple guest cancellations and I can honestly say I'm just as excited to attend the event as I was when I originally booked, plenty of amazing guests and exhibits to see, lovely people to meet from the community and so much to do. Thank you mods and forum posters for the amazing job you're doing sorting all of this and for the Event organisers for doing everything possible to make it an interesting and exciting show, I'm sorry you guys are having to deal with the negativity of a few.

    NEWS UPDATE from Facebook: Just a heads up everyone our exciting multiple guest announcements on Friday at 7pm is now a "BIG" multiple guest announcement as we have just closed some more guests since we put this announcement up! So get ready and after these guests are announced we do feel tickets for some of the photo ops will start to sell out and also day tickets for Saturday are getting low so be warned :-) This years event will sell out on the Saturday and most likely sell out on the Sunday. Hope that helps you all to plan your weekend at the biggest London Film and Comic Con yet.
