First, The Nominoichi is now sold out. All the tables have been reserved and the Stand-By list is now full.
Second, at this time the Nominoichi forum is growing by many posts every day. There is far too much stuff for us to catch everything quickly. It'd be very helpful if, when you see a post, thread, or comment that you think might be breaking any of the rules to please use the 'report post' option, even if you are not sure, and we will take a look at it. We are very grateful for all your help to keep an eye on things.
Third, Here is a draft copy of the table layout for the Nominoichi XI. I would like to remind people that this is only a proposed version of the layout. Any number of circumstances may require us to move a table, row, or even rearrange an entire section. This map is only a guide of where we hope the tables will be.
Fourth, Nominoichi Staff Tables are N114 and N115. They are at the end of the aisle and closest to the main doors. If anyone at the Nominoichi has any problems with buyers, sellers, volunteers, staff, or anyone else please come and at us at the staff tables first. Also if you lose, find, or forget anything at the Nominoichi come and see us at the staff tables. Finally, if you need any help finding a table come and see us.
Fifth, a little nomienclature. Two words we use a lot behind the scenes are buyers and sellers. Buyers are the customers at the Nominoichi, they enter the room at 7:00 and want to go shopping. We have a lot of buyers. Sellers are people who have a tables reserved. Sellers need to get into the room early to set up their stuff. All sellers are on our master list.
Here is a map of the TCC South, or main, building. This shows where the line for the Nominoichi should go. It will be outside, in the parking lot. This is the line only for buyers. It is not the place for sellers. This line will not move until we open at 7:00. All people in this line MUST have an Anime North badge. If you are in waiting this line and see anyone without a badge, please direct them over to the Convention Main Entrance because that is where registration will be.
Sixth, Only Sellers (i.e. only people who are on the list and registered at a table) will line up in Hall B, and then be admitted into Hall A as shown here. Please remember that we, the Nominoichi staff, shall be the only people to admit you and that process won't start until 5:30. We aren't even going to be in the building before 5:00.
Hall B will be available only for sellers, not buyers, to line up in from 4:00. Do not arrive any earlier than this. Please form a single long line, tight against the airwall (that divides Halls A and B) and try to keep this line as tight and compact as possible.
Remember that Hall B is going to used for Gaming and it will not be empty. Therefore, you must remain quiet and stay as much out of the way as possible. All Chairs and Tables in Hall B are for Gaming and Nominoichi sellers are NOT allowed to sit on those chairs or put stuff on those tables. Your chairs and tables await you in Hall A!
Seventh, Sellers, please remember the deadline to add, or remove, a member of your group is May 18th. After that I not allow any further changes.
Eighth, there will be a more information to share in the coming days. Please remember to check back here form time to time to see it. Also, please don't forget to come back to this forum after the Nominoichi and let us know how we did. Please share what you think went well, what didn't, and if you have any ideas to improve next years event. I know it's a bit soon to think about that now, but don't forget about it later.
Ninth, Although there are a lot of great posts on this forum, there is one I think that deserves some special recognition. SalisofKnight continues to do an outstanding job of organizing and updating a table index of all the lists sellers are posting here.
While I'm sure others struggle with keeping their own list updated, he has been attempting to stay on top of everyone's updates. All that effort had created a fantastic resource, and one I would recommend everyone, especially new uses, to check first.
