Title: Eurofurence 25 - my feedback
Post by: Lightfox on 22.08.2019, 03:34:16
So, after this latest Eurofurence, I overall had a pretty good time! But there are a few points I'd like to raise about the con this year:

The positive stuff

  • After 25 years, EF still doesn't seem to be able to start its events on time (minimum 30 mins late for every event).
  • Given how widely used the elevators are, it should be way easier to use the stairs. More often than not, the doors are locked, and we are forced to long waits, even on lower levels because of this.
  • The dealer's den seems to become increasingly inappropriate: too hot, too moist and too small compared to the amount of artists available among a crowd of now 3000+ people.

1. You just need something causing a delay at the first event, then everything else afterwards in that room will be delayed as well. Nothing you can do about it.

2. Stairs are not possible to use due to fire safety regulations.

3. So much THIS!

My biggest grief is how the new generation of attendees are so disrespectfull of people, they cut off your way, jump in front of you just to get 2 seconds faster, go in the elevator instead of letting fursuiters go first.
They don't seem to read the best practice rules for non suiters.

Blocking stairs is a NO GO btw, how many times to I have to tell people to get out of the way and let someone pass??
I have to grab the rail for my own safety, anyone preventing me to do this can and will endangermy or someone else's safety!

  • Queue management isn't always the best, and isn't well indicated or managed with lines. e.g., for the sponsor line of enter the arena, there was no indication it was the sponsor line, and no strip to manage it until 30 mins beforehand. Until that point, non-sponsors had been queuing for nothing, and the line was all over the place.
Thank you for your feedback. I have already heard from various attendees that the queues were confusing. I will address this issue at the next opportunity.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Unfortunately, it has become noticeably worse that some people act very carelessly.
I myself helped the fursuiters several times to get them an elevator because none of the group of waiting people wanted to let them in. Also, I have often had to make visitors aware that they block the way.

I think these are problems that will eventually occur when a convention is getting bigger and bigger...

Thank you for your feedback.
