TOPIC: Wait list location

Re: Wait list location 6 years 10 months ago #13

Having a set location with a sign would help. The idea of a floater is also good with those two things I think people at the con can find the Wait List!

I think a sign on a standup easel out in the convention center hallway would be great. It would be highly visible and let people know there is a waitlist, that they can still join an event in this hall. List how the wait list works, and give a map to find the wait list person.

GenCon limits the amount of signage we can have outside the room.

HOWEVER, it would have been very useful to have that sort of a sign just inside the doors, in the well lit area.
NOW this is the Law of the Jungle — as old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die.

As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk the Law runneth forward and back —
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

Yeah, I really liked having that well-lit area, especially for the Photo Ops (tho a lot of people had their back to it while leaving, and didn't realize the Photo Op area existed!

But that area of light made a *huge* difference to overall visibility in the story-scape! And I don't think it had any really significant impact on the over-all light levels in the dungeon (Although... tarting the event way at the back might have reduced the light-spillage at the begining of the adventure, and by the time you reached the end, you didn't notice. But it worked, so yay!)

I'm thinking we could have some better signage, tho, in the lit area.

I think a sign advertising there is a waiting list would help.

Many of the first timers I ran with had no idea one existed.

Heck, there were folks on the floor who saw I had a completion badge on my lanyard, and told me that they wished they could have gotten tickets. They had no idea there was a wait list when I told them about it.

Granted, there is a sweet spot between advertising it, and overloading it.

I did a pickup run this year and they didn't need generics. They just had me pay at the store. I suspect that Gencon got all the money for the ticket that didn't show and TD got all the money that I paid at the store, but I'm ok with that. It made it a lot easier than carrying all those generics

I think True Adventures and Gencon now have some sort of arrangment exactly for that reason. Likely due to or part of the agreement/ability to sell tshirts/tokens/other stuff during con. I paid cash for my pickup runs (3). Did it on Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
We're all the kind of people who enjoy the game on a "meta" level. We like talking about the game year-round. We buy tokens. We enjoy crafting. We get together during the off-season if we can. We are a very skewed demographic that way. -Raven

I actually did not know you could pay cash (or charge I'm assuming?) for waitlist runs. I thought you had to have generics. If this is an official change it would be nice to publicize, as I was telling people wrong.

Regarding the waitlist location, I spent 15-20 minutes waiting for a RoSP voucher at the information desk and likely because of my TD t-shirt I had a lot of people wander up to me for info. Many of them were curious how to play, how to get on the wait list, etc. Seems it would be good to have a better way to intercept and guide these people.

There are obviously several places the wait-list tickets come from. I had at least one on the list for a ticket I didn't need (went to waste).

Are unsold slots added to the wait list too? When would they stop selling the tickets at Event Registration and instead sell them through the wait list?

My first couple years playing, the person with the wait list was always right at the outer door, and they people waiting to play were sitting on the floor in the hallway playing other games or trading tokens. When an opening came up, they would call out the next person, then call their cell phone if not there. This worked very well. This year they were not doing the cell phone part.
