Important Registration Update

The Registration and Badge Policies have been updated. It is important that everyone reads them. The crucial items are:

  • Only persons with a badge are permitted within con space; the hallways past the registration table, the patio, dealers hall, and all programming rooms.
  • All attendees ages 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
  • Remember our registration cap is 3,500 this year. Registration will close upon reaching the cap, so we strongly recommend you pre-register. We cannot guarantee there will be available space through the weekend. **The only way to ensure you receive a badge is if you pre-register**

On that note, Pre-Registration closes May 31st, in less than a month.

Panel Submission Reminder

A friendly reminder that Panel Submissions close June 6, 2011. That means you have less then a month to submit a panel idea for AnimeIowa 2011!!  If you have a panel you want to submit, don’t wait until the last minute.

Site Issues Resolved

It looks like Google un-flagged animeiowa.com as a malicious site. I apologize for the inconvenience this caused.

Site Issues

It appears that earlier today the site was hacked. It does not appear that anything was lost, but Google is reported the site as malicious due to some malicious javascript that was injected into the site. The offending javascript has been removed, passwords have been changed, and Google has been contacted to re-check the site. In the mean time, don’t worry, the site is perfectly safe.
