Last year I was a naughty naughty draguinea and when I was out of suit dashed into the lounge and drank a heckload of water. I had just been given a drink by someone I knew though that due to a language barrier I didn't know it contained a substance I'm quite allergic to until my tongue started swelling up and my throat began to close x.x Is it ok to do stuff like that in emergency circumstances?

No, in case of an emergency you have to fill out the red form number E911 to get the green form number E110 which gives you the permission to talk to one of our medics and if they are not having their coffee break in this very moment they will run into the fursuit lounge to get you some water.

Thank you

Allright, just in case someone didn't understand the irony in Nightfox' post: Of course an emergency situation justifies breaking pretty much ANY rule, if it's necessary to protect someones life and limb :)

Thats what really annoyed me last year. There were several times when I entered the headless lounge and there were non-suiters helping themselves to water. One time, the person emptied the tanks and I had to wait for it to be refilled. People taking loads of glowsticks out of the lounge was also another problem. Last year, one person went into the lounge during the BBF dance and took every single green glowstick in the tub. Including every green glowstick off all the fursuit heads on the tables. Annoyingly enough, it was the guy who drove me and Frost T Wolf to the con last year, Xai.

I also told one person to leave the lounge before I called for a staff member because he wondered into the lounge taking photo's of all the heads drying.

At least this year, the room is more out of the way and is not on the main route to get to the dance floor. If I see people doing that this year, I'll tell them to get lost if they don't have a good reason for doing those things.

Good post overall Cheetah :) They are very good guidelines for people around suiters :) Lets just hope most, if not all people abide by them this year.

Just an idea. Wouldn't it be good to have this printed and handed out at the registration desk? Not everyone who attends EF are on the forums :). It could go along with the "Yiffy guide to safer sex".

Edit: Also, it could be pretty useful to newcomers to ef. :)

Nah, I don't think so. People are already being handed too much stuff they don't read ... another leaflet with rules would be just a waste of dead trees, in my humble opinion :)

Sure i will be nice to them. I will be silly with or without suit, so don't get mixed up and say what a nice suit you have and i will not have any. ;D But respect my tail, cause it knows some fighting techniques. :D

But there could be a poster at the outside wall of the registration room. If the queues get as long as last year and the people are just as bored, they're going to read everything available ;D

Could I add one other thing about the elevators?  When someone is in fursuit, it's sometimes difficult for them to not only press the floor button, but if they've been pushed toward the back of the elevator, it can be really difficult for them to actually see which floor the elevator has stopped on.  If you see a suiter that isn't near the button panel, it can be really helpful to them if you call out the floor number as the elevator doors open.
