  1. maybe, but right now I don't care, I dont want to attend this event anymore, not even for the hugest rarest guest, I've lost all confidence in it and being condecended to by SM is just p**sing me off. What ever happened to the paying customer being right? If I was just someone that was interested in coming that would be one thing, but I've already forked out the money so I think I should have the right to complain. Fine, ban me, I could care less, and give me my money back. I will no longer be attending any events run by Showmasters, and I've spent a LOT of money at them over the last
  2. And this proves you don't know what you are talking about, because not only have I experience of this kind of event, but you've attended some of the ones I ran. I was running conventions long before I started working for Showmasters. It tells you that we have been extremely busy, and sometimes other things in life take priority. I'm sorry you feel let down by the lack of announcements and updates, but we do care about the event and about making it the best possible experience we can for any fans who attend. I'm only going to respond to these 2 points, because to be honest, I could c

  4. sorry, but we've heard that old excuse too many times now. If you've got too many shows to put any effort into this one, then something needs to be dropped, or get more staff in. So those who aren't interested in RC and who have also paid out in advance for tickets for other events which you are suggesting should be dropped should lose out because of Ring Con? Nice. Just remember that RC is occupying the weekend that was originally booked for another show, meaning that a lot of people have already been disappointed. Good luck with cancelling the ticket - I suggest you read the T&Cs w
  5. sorry, but we've heard that old excuse too many times now. If you've got too many shows to put any effort into this one, then something needs to be dropped, or get more staff in. Lots of us have paid out a lot of money for this show, and right now, it seems like no-one at SM cares enough to give us proper updates (and guests). I'm seriously thinking about cancelling my ticket.
  6. You're joking?? There are NO rooms??! now why doesnt that surprise me?
  7. Hey so did I!!! We'll be neighbours Surely they must know what they are doing up there, especially if they have the experience to back them up with the event in Germany. Besides, if it all goes pear shape, there is always possibility to get a full refund. It will happen and if it does not then it means that they would have tried their best but that unfortunately there is not enough enthusiasts to make this con viable. So let's hope that there is thousands of us attending. My advise: forget about FF, it's well in the past Well if it's NOT going to happen, I'd rather have
  8. I hate to tell you this, but you're not allowed to name competitor conventions on here. Maybe edit it to take out the name and just put where and when it was.
  9. yes, you're right, but Showmasters have £150, or whatever a silver cost, of my money and IF I am going to get it back if it doesnt happen, I'd rather I got it now than a few months down the line. It's earning interest in their account when I could be spending it on necessities. It's not a small amount of money for me.
  10. I've paid for a silver pass and I'm feeling a bit wary now. I know it's a long way off but the promised hotel detalis haven't appeared, despite being told we'd get them months ago, none of the organisers have posted anything so we dont know what is or isnt happening and I'm starting to wonder if this event is actually going to go ahead? Please could someone in the know give us some information, otherwise I'm going to have to ask for my money back, it's a lot of money that's been paid out for nothing so far.
  11. I know Malcolm is very good and trustworthy. Last year there was a problem with my Ian Somerhalder picture and he emailed me the file in which he'd adjusted the colour after I left him my details at the show.
  12. Ironside, I think when you've done a few conventions where you're basically stuck in 1 place all day with the choice of 1 restaurant/cafe and nothing else to do but sit on the floor to wait your turn for an autograph/photo/talk, then you'll come to appreciate how great it is to have Collectormania at Milton Keynes. The hotels/restaurants/shops/shopping centre and clean and well laid out and it makes life so much easier to go there for most fans than anywhere else. I personally prefer it to Earls Court in London, even though I live in London, as it's all there for me in one place once I'm there
  13. I only met Anthony Head, Brandon Routh and Grace Park so my choice is limited, but Anthony is amazing, friendly, chatty, a little flirty and I adore him. Brandon was a class act too, he made everyone feel special and gave everyone attention, I was very impressed!
  14. The Brandon photo session was definitely over-subscribed. There were far more than 400 people in the queue, at least 600, if not more. No wonder the developers couldnt cope. I think it was wishful thinking for a small photo shop like the one used to be able to handle all those photos and for the sessions before as well. Plus they were still doing normal customer 1 hour printing as well. I know on the Sunday other photo shops were used to cover all the shoots and that's what should have happened on the Saturday too with so many photos being taken over the entire day. Oh yes, and when I did
  15. a LOT better than Common Rotation lol! Beecake were fantastic, but I thought the audience were a bit lame, most people were just standing there, not moving at all, which is weird at a gig. I was dancing the whole time, how could you not? The disco after was really great too, the music the dj chose was excellent and I had a fantastic time.
