You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  1. Do more with badges.

    It's a neat idea. I'd like to see other people's badges and for people to be able to see mine.

    • Create graphical representation for con statistics year over year.

      I'd like to see year-over-year data for cons you have information on (attendance figures, price, dates, guests) represented in some sort of graphical form. The most obvious use is for modeling con growth over time, comparing growth rates, dips, etc. and modeling the data on multiple cons based on geographic location and time. I think this functionality would provide an interesting look into the evolution of cons in different areas of the country / around the world and possibly show how dates and competition effect growth rates.

      • Let me upload pics of my costumes and pick which cons I'm wearing them at

        I know a few other sites do this, but it would be nice to have a place to upload them that doesn't charge for it and has a full list of cons

            We are planning to add a section for verified convention organizers to manage details of their own convention. Once this has been added, we can also have a place for receiving feedback. …but this will have to wait for that to be done first. (Best case scenario is that it’s added at the same time, but it won’t be done before that.)

          • Have a convention organizer section

            I'd like to see a section, accessible only to convention heads using the official convention Email address, where con heads can detail their experiences with Guests. This would allow us to determine whether or not a particular Guest may suitable, or if we should avoid them for being a drama queen.

              Believe it or not, this is actually something which has been on the drawing board for a while. We hope to add it in the next few months since there are a number of other new features for convention organizers which are dependent on this section being done first.

            • Con Staff

              As many of the people on animecons.tv are staff members them selves or have done it in the past. Have you thought of maybe adding a few new members or talking to other con staff members about what they do for people who might be interested in joining? It would give a much different look then what you already do.

              • Podcast suggestion

                I'd like to see the topic of Con burnout on an upcoming episode of the podcast. I've been recently having doubts of my home con and don't know if I should rethink my approach or just give up entirely.

                  I’m not sure what there is to say about con burnout. We’ll have to give it some thought and see if we can come up with any ideas on how to overcome it. However, people get con burnout for different reasons so the solutions may depend on the reasons you’re burned out in the first place.

                • Voice Actor's Birthday

                  I suggest that when its a birthday of a voice actress/actor, artist, etc, it should appear on the main page of AnimeCons.com
                  For Example, today its Rachael Lillis' Birthday ^_^ So could her birthday wishes be on the main page?

                  • Create written guides on how to start and run a convention

                    The written guides could cover various aspects of starting a convention and expand from there to cover topics related to running a convention. It could cover topics such as guests, programming, facilities, and more.

                    • Have a section on the website for reviews of anime conventions

                      Anyone can write a review and anyone can read the reviews. Write a review about the different events, the functionality of the whole con, and just the overall experience of being there.

                      • Allow me to track pre-registration, hotel, and travel confirmation numbers for each convention so I can keep them all in one place.

                        I sometimes forget what cons I've booked a hotel for or have already booked flights to get to or if I've pre-registered or not. It would be nice to be able to track this. ...and while I do so, keep confirmation numbers in one place so if there's a problem checking in, I can just look up the confirmation number on the site!

                              Our site operates well in mobile browsers. We used to have a mobile version a couple years ago, but it didn’t get much use. We eventually shut it off because it meant a lot of extra work for us whenever we’d make new pages and we’d need to make a mobile version too. However, if enough people vote for this idea, we will reconsider.

                            • Don't see your idea?
