Sorry about that. I wish there were some filter that could be enabled that would keep the spam bots from registering. I've looked into the system and cannot find anything. We get anywhere from 15 to 20 (sometimes more) of these coming on board a day. If they are not taken care of as quickly as possible it would be a 24/7 job deleting their posts and soon their garbage would pile up to the point that we would just have to shut the board down. I try to recognize those accounts that would be true accounts (user names that show a connection to anime, manga, gaming (not too up on the gaming though), or legit in some way, shape or form and leave them. Most user names that are not recognizable, are gibberish, profiles that actually mention they are in marketing or are from places like Vietnam (yes they will actually put these things in their profiles) or contain large amounts of numbers get flushed. If I am unsure I look for an immediate posting or construction of a profile. You can lurk without having an account. But if one is going to create an account I would hope that they want to interact with others on the forum. I would encourage everyone coming on board to at least come to this thread to acknowledge their legitimacy of one who in interested in Animazement and not to sell Nike shoes.

Oh, and I just banned someone who had a legit posting but their signature was full of links to clothing sites...

Please don't insult my intelligence (what little there is). :?

Well I was just a little shocked by two things:

1.) How quickly I was banned and 2.) Truth be told I've never been to a forum that has turned to this method as a security measure before. It's not like I'm new to the internet. I found it very bizarre and I was considerably angry at first. But if this is your only way to keep the house clean, then I understand.

It was my intention to lurk initially. Many con forums don't show you all boards unless you are a registered member. After confirming I wasn't missing out on anything I decided I wouldn't register because I usually don't have nothing to say (and this is probably going to be my only AZ anyway). I finally signed up because I had a question about Karaoke.

Apparently we have both unintentionally made negative first impressions on each other. I apologize for making comments that, in hindsight, were unnecessary and unhelpful. I've done the forum admin thing before. It is a thankless job. :)

Truce?

Hello everyone!

My name is Natalie, I go by PixelKitty or PixelK1tty ;) I've been attending Animazement for 10 years now so many of you may have already seen me roaming around in costume. I just created a new forum account though and wanted to introduce myself! ^^

I am very much into cosplay and if you are interested in following along with my progress or Animazment related updates please join my Facebook page Facebook.com/PixelKittyCosplay or follow me on twitter @pixelk1tty

Hello everyone! I think I'm posting to this topic kind of late (considering we're counting down the last...two weeks?) but better late than never. My name's Vanessa, and this is my...fourth year? I was in the AA last year as the "asian star girl" with the ridiculous amounts of folded paper stars. I'm excited to be returning again this year with some new crafts still utilizing my paper stars.

I won't be cosplaying this year because the two characters I was interested in (Rhyme from TWEWY and Hikari from Pokemon) were respectively discovered too close to the con date for me to finish and too complicated for me. :) I'm excited to meet everyone again this year.

Hey! I'm new to the forums but this isn't going to be my first time at AZ. So ya'know, I figured I would have a more enjoyable and awesome experience if I get involved with other awesome otakus and con goers. :3
Oh god. I am not ready for this . . . at all.

Durrhurr, I usually don't like introducing myself into forums, but eh, anyway.

Hi, I'm PigeonStar, and this will be my first time going to AZ (with some friends that have been going for several years). I've been to other cons for about 5-6 years, so I'm not new to the con scene!

You guys will probably be seeing me in the Artist Alley for the most of the time! If you guys see this artwork www.pigeonstar.deviantart.com and a small asian manning the table, then that's probably me! :B

It's nice to see some younger Cosplayers doing old school characters...


Yeah I first cosplayed Ranma when I was... I like 12 or 13, but now I'm 17 so I'll fit the part better. C:

Ranma 1/2!? Hells yeah!!! It's been a while since I've seen any cosplayers from it~ Very kickass, indeed.

Hey people!

I'm Gerald!

This is my 2nd Animazement and I'll be flying solo Thursday night, most of the day Saturday, and I'll have my little cousins with me on Sunday (they LOVED getting pictures with Mario and Pikachu last year!) as well as my Mom and another cousin.

I'm a 28 year old IT dude. I have an abnormal love for the Magical Girl Genre of anime (I started anime with Sailor Moon back in the late 90's... I'm old...) but I was also raised on DBZ, Vampire Hunter D, Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop and later on Inuyasha, Pretty Cure (and all it's renditions), Air TV, and others to be sure.

I'm a local Raleighite and would love to get a gang together of of-age people to go drinking afterward on Saturday night! I also live down town so I'd be up for having some folks over for drinks as well.

I don't much like flying solo, so if anyone wants a tag-along I'm free! I won't be cosplaying, but I'll def be watching cosplayers.

OK! Hope to see you all there this weekend!

Howdy, I'm Quizzeh and this week's convention is going to be the first anime convention I've ever been too. I've gone with friends to comic book conventions with anime stuff but they were pretty small. Anyway, glad to meet you all!

Since it's been a few years, and I've been completely out of the loop and soooooooo many new peeps, I thought I would re-do this and tell everyone what I've been up to.

Some of you may remember me, I would assume none. I'm Erock. Thanks to joining the Army in '09 I've missed the past 3 years. How sad. I was planning on coming this year, but my daughter is due any day now, and priorities come first. I already know that I'll be missing next year as well due to I just got orders to Korea and shipping out in August. It's only a year tour so 2013, if at all possible I'll be there. Greatest thing about this Korea trip is.... wait for it.... trip to Japan, yo. I probably won't be as active on the forums like I use to, and these boards have changed so much I was at a complete loss. If you remember me, keep in touch through Facebook or Xbox. Hope to see you in 2013, I've got big plans
