1. Why do they have an unexpected bill?

2. What's the drama that people keep alluding to in the comments? (Aside from Shuto being an SJW hugbox con.)

>> No.9632125

Drama that I'm aware of:
Conchair left her co-conchair husband (who she has a daughter with) for a girl she met on the internet who was also leaving her husband.

Stephanie (conchair) keeps pushing these generic plushie kickstarters and crying to as many FB groups as she can when no one is preordering

Shuto is a for-profit con and more than likely the primary income of Stephanie/her new girlfriend (who is also now a core staff of Shuto), so it suddenly being so out of money seems super suspicious

It's been years since the failed random battle con and they fundraised to recoup those losses too, which is super coincidental that this con is sudden broke now too

If you donate ten dollars you get 10$ con cash to be used at 'participating vendors and artists' but no word on how many vendors and artists agreed to accept the coupons, essentially making them con cash useless

Yeah, they say they will reimburse the artists but they are clearly shit at managing money, so who is to say they will have any? They've also scammed people they owed out of money in the past.

When they started paying volunteers they "forgot" to collect any contact info from said volunteers so they had no way to mail checks out. They made a post in the group saying that people had to send their contact info by the end of the day to get paid or they would just "donate" the money back to the con.

If you are 6k out of budget with 65 USD tickets you need to take a long hard look at your business model because you either don't have a safety contingency, haven't properly accounted for all of your expenses or you are overestimating your revenue flow.

Stefanie says she only wants constructive criticism, and that's fair. People screaming at her that she sucks and shouldn't run the con anymore isn't constructive. So here you go Stefanie, because I know you're reading this.

Stop. For your own sake. Stop. Stop taking on debt. Stop alienating yourself from your friends. Stop busting your ass for something that just isn't working.

Shuto was a nice, chill con, five years ago. Conventions have changed, and Shuto hasn't changed with it. For all the lip service that you pay to Shuto being an inclusive space, your con feels more and more hostile every year, and there is going to be a point where you won't be able to get back to where you were.

How much debt are you willing to go into for this con? Your reputation is getting more and more damaged by the HOUR. I don't say this out of dislike for you, but instead, ambivalence and respect for another human being. Don't destroy your credit and your life for an anime convention.

Also, I did panels for this con with a studio I was in. Yknow how most cons gave you badge compensation if you did x number of panel hours?
Well our compensation was a fucking plushie.

>> No.9634071


So several years ago, Stefanie decided the con needed to be a Safe Space, so part of the con initiative was that staffers were listening for wrong think words, pulling the people aside and telling them "We can pull your badge and expel you from the con, or you can come with us and have a talk about why those words are bad, if you do, you can stay."

The SJW re-education camp was born.

>> No.9634150

After years of not listening to people and attendance going down, maybe figuring out what people want is an option.

That is the part that still irks me, why broadcast that the expenses will all be paid with or without this 9k 'donation'?

This is the worst thought out scam I've ever seen. I do like the nice touch of using EventBrite to collect the donations though.

B: Like anyone at Gen Con knew anything about Random Sad Con.

Oh, it's so funnier than that.

They had an "open relationship", which is often a tool the man uses as an excuse to talk the wife into letting him try "exciting new things" such as introducing third parties into a relationship to cause simmering resentment into a relationship that already isn't working. Exciting!

So, apparently, he tried his hands at this, often by trying for the desperate pity-fuck angle within his extended friend circles and con attendees, and wasn't as successful as she was, possibly because her standards were lower.

So one day, lo and behold, "they" had a new girlfriend, but only she was talking about her in raptuous terms as if it were a life-changing event. We could all see where this was going - it was more "her" girlfriend than "his" girlfriend. Joe was super supportive, too, and we knew this because she told us he was. Eventually, he did, too.

Shortly after, she tried on her genderfluids, because gender non-conformity is, to her, a mere fashion statement one has when one wants to enjoy a bit of androgyny and wear pants instead of a dress and have a girlfriend instead of (whoops, spoiler) I mean in addition to a husband. We could all see where this was going. Joe was super supportive, too, and we knew this because she told us he was. Eventually, he did, too.

Her new girlfriend was SUPER SUPPORTIVELY ASSPATION about everything she ever posted, which honestly is all one ever needs out of a girlfriend, amirite? It's a match made in heaven. Certainly better than a relationship with pre-existing complications - romantic, financial, and otherwise - and with no dangerhair to boot.

And then the payoff. She went to her faceblog and pounded one out, because everyone needs to know every aspect of her personal life. She was too genderfluids to have a husband, but everything was super cool with Joe, who was super supportive and everything was super because it was super and super. And the GF was "proud" of how mature they were both being.

I knew one guy who did a similar thing. Had a bunch of fuck buddies, fell in love with one of them but didn't want to give up the harem, who he thought loved him. She fucks a bunch of guys until she finds a dude in a gender flipped relationship who's scamming his girlfriend for money. They try to make it a foursome, but the hangers on don't get along.

I wonder if shuto will pull through from this. With most cons the average attendee is pretty much deaf to any behind the scenes drama but shuto email blasted everyone who's bought tickets about their financial woes. A lot of people might reconsider about buying tickets when the con has money problems & apparent mismanagement. I'd assume they will have to cut back on programming in order to get their debts paid off

>> No.9638077

Well if you are talking about the fan-run panel portion of programming, that doesn't really cost them anything since they've stopped reimbursing panelist badges and show no sign of bringing that back. For running like 4+ hours of programming you are rewarded with a t-shirt, whereas every other con I've done panels for I either got a discounted badge or a completely free badge.

As a panelist I'm not really looking to pay shuto to have a space to provide my content, especially since the atmosphere is so much more like a day care than a fan gathering. I'm essentially paying the con for the privilege of presenting my panel and watch their ill behaved attendees, which is definitely how I want to spend my weekend.

>> No.9638100

I'm talking about the stuff a badge price usually covers, like guests, musical acts, gaming, dances, prizes for contests, program booklets, etc. They have said that they're revisiting their policy of not reimbursing panelists at all, so there's that, I guess.

Youmoucan doesnt seem fun either. Both cons seem to serve very specific people. Youmacon is very folksy. Not a lot of different people.

Is this the guy thats so salty in this thread. The con doesnt seem that profittable so she wanted to charge you paid photogs "rent". It only seems right. This is the only thing I agree with them on.
I would use shuto as a test con or to promote my merch. You sound mad that they wouldnt pay you. Maybe you should step back and ask yourself is my panel worth how ever much the badges were running. If its not just be glad you can work out the kinks in peace.

Well it looks like Shito con will be starting up soon, and since I do enjoy the idea of them being in chaos, I thought I'd share a little secret with you guys. I know who the email hacker is! Yep that's right I know who it is that sent out those fake emails that caused them trouble. I won't tell you his/her/their name for obvious reasons, but I can tell you that if you want to see another round of them get sent out in the near future (or if you want one sent to you personally), all you need to do is post the emails of yourself, your friends, or anyone you know that decides to be at shito con this weekend, and the hacker will have all the information needed to send that person an email pretending to be that bitch Shall (or any of the con staff for that matter, no one is safe). And for the record, whatever increase in security they attempt to prevent the hacker from sending these is pointless, the hacker can bypass it no matter what they do. I'll let the hacker know about this thread so they can get a good laugh out of this. Also if you have any ideas on things that would be funny to see as a fake email do tell!
