    Thanks for all the work all. The floor plan looks pretty solid. Lets hope there is no more people jam. I do owe an apology to a goon out there as I ignored him as I was getting OUT of the people jam come hell or high water. ;)

    You can "like" (lower right corner of each post) which increases a counter to its right.

She 'encouraged' me to endeavor to visit the piano bar if it was open this year, apparently it's another bridge that I need to cross. All of that said, I'm also interested to know if the piano bar will be used by DC this year/

    Hi! Is DC considering using the Piano Bar in between the hotels again?

    What is the bottleneck in the lines? Where can it be optimized? Should there be an EXACT CHANGE line? Or a line for folks who buy 5 badges or more? Are there issues with people getting to the cashier and THEN looking for money? Or asking if they take checks or credit cards? Or maybe the swag that is handed out is awkward and needs extra time? Maybe a little tweaking in just one of many areas will really make a difference.

    Thank, you! It does help and yes we are talking with Grifter as well. He's great.

    And getting all four bronze rooms, with each of us getting our share and a wall/partition would be grand!

    Before DC23 rooms seemed to be setup that way and it seemed better to me.

    That is a good idea. In some cases we may have to keep them portrait because of how we hang the screens from the ceiling and how that plays for turnover/re-arranging the rooms. I'll ask and see. Maybe it's possible. :-) Thanks.

    Unfortunately no, we did consider that but we had things working against us to make that happen. We are planning improvements for this year that look promising to shave off the wait time. We do want that line gone as quick as possible too.

    There is a floorplan option being discussed for those rooms, to maximize how much space both of those villages get, as well as increasing it's visibility so that they don't feel tucked into a dark hallway anymore. We've some clever ways to handle partitions to make foot traffic higher.

    Right now, we are working to try to make it so you both get more space and it's clearly divided while being able to share a possible stage, not necessarily the room itself. I think we may be waiting on a few variables to determine if we can use all four rooms and then present more info to you guys. I'd connect up with Grifter to learn more, and I'm sorry if you were not brought into that conversation sooner, but perhaps we were waiting till we had all the options beforehand.

    If it helps to know, we are attempting to plan those rooms with each of your best interests in mind. Grifter has been especially good about communicating some of the issues that he knew came up from dc23. :-) Hope that helps. Sorry for my lag in reply.

    Hi everyone....

    We have since updated the map, this is the "nearly final floor plan". We might tweak this or that to try to squeeze some more space into places, but hopefully nothing major.

    Also, those of you worrying about the traffic of DC101 conflicting with registration on Thursday, 101 will start mid day around 2pm most likely, after the lines for reg have died down. It will likely go later into the evening, or be only a few select panels. This is yet to be set in stone for what talks and when, but we do know we won't be running 101 during the "rush hour" so to speak. We have a few other yet to be announced plans we are solidifying, we do want lines and reg to run smooth this year, so we are not ignoring it, we saw the problems last year, and we are listening to your feedback.

    Thanks,
    Nikita
