  1. Another minor blip: in the guest list of the app, the search function doesn't seem to work. I type and the list doesn't get filtered. Other than that all is fine!
  2. I've kind of lost track with the version numbers. Is the version on the first page of this thread the updated version?
  3. It's not getting close to grandma age, it's basic manners. If your friend isn't coming and you can't give the ticket to anyone else, they should reimburse you anyway. It's not your fault they can't make it.
  4. That I can understand. If it was me leaving and she had addressed me I would have said, "I'm really sorry, I have a photo shoot/talk/whatever that I need to get to or I will miss it." Also it is important when leaving early to do it as quietly as possible.
  5. I can understand getting annoyed if someone leaves your talk early, but she should have considered the possibility that the guy had a clash with something else and chose to miss part of her talk in order to get to the other thing, as opposed to missing one of the 2 completely.
  6. OK. I'll go by in the morning and ask, or at 2pm right after finishing my previous talk (I have many talks this year!) Thanks!
  7. Kieron Gillen is a comic guest, not part of the YALC. The comic signing schedule published on Twitter has 2 signing sessions for him, 11-12 and 3-4. (Can't ask the twitter account because I don't have twitter.)
  8. Ahh, the constant heat problem! I'm sure showmasters are doing everything they can, but with the old building and the thousands of people there's a limit to how much the AC can do. I'm glad the weather seems to be cooling down. I was thinking if heat waves during LFCC become a trend, I will have to come cosplaying as Red Sonja next time. Let the heat beat that chainmail bikini!
  9. Question: I have the Christina Ricci talk at 3.30 on Saturday. I want to make the 3-4 Kieron Gillen signing session (can't make the morning one because of the Billy Dee Williams talk). How early will we be able to queue for Kieron? I want to go early to make sure I make it out in time for the talk, but I don't want to arrive too early and clog the area.
  10. Aha! it didn't come up in my news feed when it went up, so I missed it! It was quite a way down, too! Thanks!
  11. There's usually a comic stage/signing schedule posted at some point, but I can't seem to find it. Has it not been posted yet? Or is it some place I haven't thought to look?
  12. Ooh Bob Gale talk, that should be good! Good job you mentioned it because I didn't notice it on first look.
  13. Read the FAQ, and don't be afraid to ask again if you still have questions. Re: how easy it is to get there from the tube, this post https://showmastersonline.com/forums/index.php?/topic/97827-entry-points-and-pass-collection/ has a map of the area so you can see where each entrance is in relation to the tube. As you will see the tube (Overground) is right next door, but you need to walk a bit to get to the right entrance. From what I know your daughter can come with you even if only one of you is getting an autograph, but she will still need a VT (as to what that is, read the FAQ, it explains it).
  14. Same for me, I'm more worried about missing part/all of LFCC than missing work returning home! Seems I'm safe so far so breathing a sigh of relief. And here's another article with all the details: https://www.standard.co.uk/news/travelnews/uk-airports-strikes-when-and-how-will-passengers-be-affected-at-heathrow-stansted-and-gatwick-a4191556.html
  15. This is good; it will cut down on the plastic bottle waste as well as being cheaper.
  16. To add to what QS said, if a photo shoot is enough of a "meeting" for you, you can get a photo shoot to "meet the guest". Photo shoots are also guaranteed. Just remember that at the photo shoot you can't talk to the guest, just have a photo taken and that's it, whereas with an autograph you may get to talk to them a bit (depends on the guest and the queue).
  17. A google search has yielded only some articles from the Sun. It seems the 25/7 strike will be at Stansted, and regarding Gatwick workers have until 26/7 to vote for a strike in August? So maybe I will not be affected. But will have to keep monitoring things. Grrrr... fingers crossed, hope everything goes well. https://www.thesun.co.uk/travel/9488034/easyjet-summer-strike-london-stansted/ https://www.thesun.co.uk/travel/9491507/gatwick-airport-strike-summer/
  18. Dammit I'm arriving on the 25th via Gatwick (Easyjet)!
  19. For me it will be the opposite as I had 2 paid talks each on Sat & Sun, but none on Fri :-)
  20. Regarding the DP since the old one will be refunded, you just have to go buy a new one for a different day. Although depending on how you are money-wise, you may want to wait for the refund to come through. With the entrance tickets I don't know if you'll be lucky, but you never know.
  21. Thanks for the announcement; I had a photo shoot booked for Sunday, so I guess I'll have to go buy a Friday one.
  22. There's no set time, but from my experience most arrive between 9 and 9.30 am.
