Yes. They've sent out acceptance notifications and are working on payment invoices. One of my friends did contact them after not hearing anything and turned out for some reason the email they sent to her was bouncing back. If you haven't heard you could send an email to check with them!

It's been up for I think a month now? AFest really needs to catch up with the times and have an online sign-up system, with a date that everyone knows.

They seem to start without notice or I just don't seem to get notice ever via email. I believe the form was available two or three months ago. I wouldn't have known if my friend didn't tell me. I usually miss it every year because I don't check the website until it's too late.

I know how you feel. I've been doing animefest since 2012 and every spring I have to check their website frequently so that I don't miss it.

There's already an online signup framework for Volunteers that goes live months in advance; we need to catch Bazaar representatives and suggest to them that the same system be used for Bazaar signups. Anyone who can stick around for the Bitch Session/Dead Dog after the con on Monday should bring it up there as well, since Robert and Laura are usually on hand and actually pay attention to voiced concerns.

Has anyone been able to contact the Bizzarre manager? I've been trying to get extra badges invoiced for weeks, but he hasn't responded.

I actually had the same problem, I emailed them about a week ago, but haven't gotten any response

So.. who's going to be vending at AFest this year? Most of the artists I know got waitlisted. Actually.. the only artists I know of that got in are plush artists o.o (well, technically I only know 3 who got in, but they are all plush).

Most of who I know didn't get in. Really weird since they have been there the past few years...
