......Is there no Ask a Nation, or am I just not seeing it? I will be massively disappointed if there isn't. : \

I assume there's a typo here, right?

Because Madoka is not a G-rated show...

I hate to be a pain, but is there a printer-friendly version of this?

Of course the two things I was looking forward to most are at the same time. Ah well. :P

What, does your browser not have a zoom function? I dunno what you're using but on Chrome just use the little menu bar, zoom is right there, zoom to like 125% and boom, you can see everything fine now.

I notice there's no ticket pick up for Masquerade like last year? Can people just come now?

There is no printer-friendly version of the schedule. A printed version of it will be included with the Con Chowder you receive at Registration.

Keep in mind that any printed schedule will be obsolete relatively quickly, as schedule adjustments can and do happen. You may zoom in on your browser, or try the Guidebook app for a different view of the schedule.

I would like to say that, after putting Guidebook onto my iPhone, I LOVE that whoever was behind uploading all the information also included all the neat details like the map on the event page!

Even though I'm familiar with the layout of each of the buildings, it was hard last year to have to keep going back and forth between the map part of Guidebook and then the event page to figure out where some rooms were.

I only use Guidebook during Anime Boston, so I've no idea if it was an application update or not, but even the color coding (which I don't remember from last year when I used my KindleFire) on the schedule is awesome.

TL;DR - Whoever was in charge of transferring all the schedule info onto Guidebook is amazing. :D

AB 2015:
Pokemon Breeder (Pokemon - ORAS) ~ 95% done. I've got no buttons on my pokeballs, but they're shiny~!
White Mage (Final Fantasy) ~ Fairly Good chance to use.

I'm also going to comment that I feel like the Masquerade is really early this year.
Isn't it usually at like, 7 or 8? A lot of great panels are still going on then and people have to chose between going to them or the masq. :c
AND having it right after the AOT premiere ends? That means that everybody who goes to that won't have ANY time to wait in line.. D:

We needed to move the masquerade up in order to accommodate the JAM Project concert. For masq and the concerts, both are ticketed events, so as long as you get your tickets earlier in the day, you will be guaranteed a seat.

Not sure what happened with the yaoi panels (also saddened by this, since I hadn't realized until you guys pointed it out, now what am I gonna do when I get off duty?), but panels are selected based on what comes in through the applications, so if you want to see them at con, the best advice I can give is to consider running them in the future.

No one applied to do a yaoi panel this year, if I recall correctly.

Still, the masquerade could have been moved to a later time when not as many panels were happening so people wouldn't have to chose between them and it. :?
But I'm happy about the ticket part so I'll be sure to tell my friends about that! I know I'll be getting mine as early as possible. ^^

I'm also really disappointed about the yaoi panels, I really hope someone decides to run it next year!
