I'll only be able to check things on my breaks ahhhhh.

 

Not that it'll be the end of the world but i bet it'll come through in the hour and a half I'll be travelling home! Despite what they said they must be pretty confident to pre announce it though.

I've done this so far for the Plat A items, don't know if it's any good for anyone. I'll update it tomorrow/Thursday when ever we get the final info. I've got some of my ticket events on there in addition to the Plat A events but have a look and let me know what you think. I can remove my non Plat A activities if anyone want's a copy. Pink Lady I know you are doing one as well but as you are busy today thought I'd try one but if yours is better we will ignore this one.

Opps, the Andrew Scott talk is NOT free!

Have you missed out Benedict's shoot? Or am I just not seeing it right?

My thoughts go to people who are making the cards and printing the flyer - with all the ongoing changes.

No, I published it before they updated it so it's probably all wrong now anyway - I thought they may just slot him in somewhere. I'll try and redo it in the morning and if I can I'll post it.

Ah ok, Cool. :) Good luck with all your planning. My schedule seems like a doddle in parts compared to yours, I remember the nightmare last year.

 

I'm only going Gold this time as my friend can't afford Platinum or I'd have probably upgraded a while ago just for the priority seating/queuing.

That's very kind of you, I'd have been 'Ben's been announced, i'm upgrading, see you later'! :dance:

 

No, not really, but I'd have been thinking it.

Ah half the fun of the convention this time for me is to share it with Fi, she lives in Glasgow and I'm in Norwich so we normally only see each other every 2/3 years when our favourite band tour for a new album (it's how we met, on the HIM boards about 9 years ago) We did meet up last year for our Hamlet/Three Days in the Country/Sherlock weekend so that was gr8 fun. :smile:

 

I've sorted out my schedule pretty much now thanks to you and your patience with my endless questions on Twitter. So thank you. :thumbup:

I'm not so lucky. Actually I should be more relaxed than last time. I am, actually, but not much.

I thought you were VIP J.P? Surely you have no stresses at all, no queuing for you what so ever.

Okay, I've done a Platinum A schedule which I think (hope) is right. It doesn't include Redbeard or the Taxi shoot, but those should easy to add in if you need to. It's fascinating to see that Raylenth and I each approached it quite differently! I need the visual read-across of the blocks to allow me to work out where my clashes are and where I need to be. I hope it's still legible - I've had trouble getting it to a format I can attach here.

I finally sat down and tried to work out my schedule (Plat 'B') and it is an absolute MESS! :(

 

There are several talks that that I *MUST* go to & ofcourse they conflict with some photo shoots pretty badly. All of which makes me a very grumpy camper. In short, there are waaaaay too many people coming to this, both guests and attendees! Give me a smaller convention any time.

 

I know I'm going to have a fantastic time inspite of the overwhelming crowd but a girl can dream... ;)

That's brilliant! Much better than mine and I think I'll use yours. It's much better having them in the blocks - what you said is true, it's a lot more workable when you can see when things end in comparison to other sessions. Thank you for doing it and sharing it with us.

I know, I was saying something similar to Evilfarie last night, I'm not going to moan because the guests we have are brilliant but there's too much to do, especially for the Plats where we have paid for everything but won't get to do a lot of it because of all the clashes. It may be that if it stays this size in future there needs to be stuff happening on the Friday as well, even if it's only in the 2 hours it's open to spread things out a bit. If they got a few of the guests there on Friday for either photo's or auto's it would take a bit of the pressure off.

That was the same experience I had last year. I was also Platinum and had to skip most of the talks which made me very sad. :crying: And I'm still annoyed about missing so many interesting talks while I had to queue for a shoot or an autograph to get everything I paid for. <_<

Therefore, I went a different way this year and bought only a Weekend pass and added every shoot and paid talk I wanted. I still have clashes - especially after adding Benedict because they changed the schedule for the talks on Sunday morning. I bought everything on Monday evening before the announcement. Had I knew Benedict would be coming I had waited until the new schedule was released. Well, now I can only watch 15 minutes of Mark's talk and then have to dash to the talk with Timothy and Wanda. What a stress! :uhoh:

I don't regret the Platinum ticket I bought especially since Ben was announced, the priority access it gives to his auto queue alone is worth it to me though that may still be a bit fraught as his queue will be permanently busy. Hopefully a lot of people will be able to get through his queue and I imagine it's going to be extremely rushed in there but who know how many will actually get through. I image there will be a good few people getting more than 1 auto, me included :whistling: though for most it may only be 1 or 2 extra, it does all add up. I freely admit I'll be getting 4 or possibly 5 from him as I'm not letting this opportunity go by to be able to get all the cast signed items I've started from being signed by him.

Oh and whilst I'm hopeful I doubt he will be personalising.

It was a it easier last time with Ben's autos because it was only Plats, one each and no personalisation; and we had two specific time slots, so it was easier to plan. I fear it might take a very long time this year.
