  1. Fantastic guest announcement! This is a good con for LOST fans
  2. While complaining on the day is always beneficial for all involved, I can understand that some might not want to complain about pit bosses etc. as they might feel worried about taking it to someone else of the same level of power in case it would make no difference. This is a feedback thread, so we are giving feedback of our experience in the hopes it will be different next time, not so much to erase the past. Please don't dismiss us as liars, you can't have seen everything that happened over the weekend.
  3. i am sorry i was there no one was manhadling anyone all they did was have there had behind you and moved it to tall you when it was your time to move forward , the shoot was a long distance from the photographer and it was hard to her the photographer say next like in other shoots , i know it might have seemed odd but it was just a way to let the person know you are good to move forward , hundreds of people went through this shoot i was there over seeing it and directing people just out from he shoot and i only saw happy people that did not feel in any way violated , i do think you are over re

  5. Food and drink was available in the lines just had to ask the secretary staff that was outside from 3 am and walking up and down all morning they were there to help and did help many 1000s of fans and most thought this year they did a great job. Toilets were also available as above just ask and you would have been taken out of the line and guided to them and taken back to your line as that was all in place for everyone As to Robert not signing that was down to him not us not knowing how long it takes to put the pack up on i am sorry we do work these things out we do not just guess
  6. I've read a lot of feedback from here and other posts, and from what my friends were saying during the weekend, so along with my own... here's my essay haha: First of all I'm very upset that people with invisible disabilities (i.e. not in a chair, holding a stick etc.) may have been disbelieved by crew when they went to get their blue badges to help them access queues etc., crew should be taught that not all disabilities are visually apparent, and that doesn't make the person any less in need of the blue badge. I've seen from feedback a great lack of respect from both crew and customers to
  7. While there is no law enforcement for not smoking in the queue, I think it's common decency and respect to not do so. You do not know if the people around you have asthma or other health conditions which could be triggered by smoke. We're all penned in with each other, and so can't step away if our health is being harmed by someone else who couldn't wait until they were away from the queue. I personally noticed it both Saturday and Sunday, once being covered in ashes as well as the smoke. Not exactly what you want when you're overheated, tired and wanting to look and smell your best.
  8. Scrapping VQ tickets would be a nightmare. They give the ability to do other things planned while having the chance to join the queue later when your number is up. Without that, queues would be crazy long, people would have to keep losing their place to go get to their scheduled stuff, and overall everyone would be very unhappy!
  9. I wasn't going to get into a debate but as your clearly making that statement in relation to my comments I'll respond. Ilovemyadams put it perfectly, unfortunately this country has a culture of people trying to get something for nothing which takes this away from the people that genuinely needs assistance and support. All I'm saying is Showmasters are going to have to be very careful because it will open the floodgates to people who are trying their luck as we have seen this year there is plenty of people that will do anything to avoid queing like the rest of us have to. People fak
  10. I think a lot of attitude I've seen told of here (and given in some posts) are appalling. Able bodied people do NOT know what it's like to live in another's body, so they shouldn't judge whether they should be getting to the front of the queue or not. It's not a VIP pass, and telling people they should queue like everyone else in the spirit of 'we're all at a convention' is ridiculous. You do not know others pain or limitations, or how lucky you are that you can queue happily without feeling like you could pass out or keel over for some reason.
  11. I don't think it's purely about money making, table photos take time to be done so a lot may have those signs up in anticipation for a long queue I'm happy to say I got a table photo with Amazon Eve, despite my friend being the one who bought her auto (I felt quite cheeky asking haha). She was great
  12. A major issue I saw was the busiest photo area (A) was right next to a lift which was in use for people who were unable to take the stairs, and due to overcrowding of many people (lots seemed to not want to leave the area despite the crew telling them they wouldn't be called up til later) it was a big problem for lift users to pass through properly. Took forever to get to level 3 Saturday afternoon, so only went up there once. We did comment jokingly that if an emergency occurred as we were up there, we'd never ever get out in time. So like last year I felt we weren't entirely safe. I coul
