What happens next?

Post by arty » Sat Apr 25, 2015 3:44 pm

Okay, so I did two panels this year, Central Park Memorial and the Worst of Central Park Media, and I heard if you do a panel Anime Boston reimburses you for your badge by mailing you a check, but it's been almost 3 weeks now and I have not received payment.

Also, do us panelists, get feedback on how our panels did?

Sometimes it can take quite awhile to get your refund. It normally takes me at least a couple of months before I get a reimbursement check, but I have no real issue with that.

It's taken 3-6 months in the past. If you wanted actual feedback, you needed to solicit it yourself from the attendees weeks ago when people were actually using the forums.

AFAIK, the only notes taken about you by the staff present are about how crowded the room was, how much of a line their was (if any), if you're breaking any rules / code of conduct, and if you showed up on time and that info is only used for future planning.

At this point I've given up on getting feedback on any of my panels. This was the second year in a row I got ZERO feedback for any of my panels from attendees and yes I took steps to gather feedback well in advance.

Honestly, it's made me rethink doing panels at all next year. Getting post-con feedback in very important to me. I don't see the point in doing them if I'm not getting any feedback on what the people who attended thought of it.

That feels like it's missing some info for context.
