Dealer's Den Waitlist
« on: September 04, 2012, 10:19:09 AM »
Has there been any movement on the waitlist?  Should those of us on it give up hope?

Our Dealers Den Director (Brendan Lonehawk) has been working Chicon 7 (aka Worldcon) this last week and is currently recovering/traveling home to the Carolinas. While I don't have an immediate answer for you, I'll make sure that he sees this and he will reply as soon as he is able.

Thank you! I am always impressed by how fast admins respond on this forum.  I have a couple friends who went to Chicon this year -- they were very impressed and had a great time.  So you can also tell him his hard work paid off! :)

Finished with Chicon and staying in Chicago until Friday. One of the items near the top of my to-do list after I get home (after going through my mail and making sure my cats are still speaking to me) is to get caught up on the MFF work, which was admittedly a bit neglected in the past month. This will include checking on the status of the waiting list and following up on some emails sent and received during that time.

There have been a few cancellations in the past month, and several dealers on the waiting list have been notified that tables were available. I sent out some additional notices earlier this week, and am waiting for those dealers to confirm that they are still able to attend MFF.

So yes, there is still a chance of getting a table if you're on the waiting list. In past years, I have gotten cancellations as late as the day before the convention, which is why I ask dealers on the waiting list to let me know if they would be able to take a table at the last minute.

I'm currently waiting to hear from one dealer who was offered the latest cancellation. There are still about ten more dealers on the list.

SnapEtiger, I believe you're number six.
