Many thanks for your answer. ;

Thanks, then we know about the prices.

Is it possible to have your own favorite photo signed? Or do the actors have their own photos there?

 :) :) :)

Having your own photo signed is up to the actor, but usually that's the case.

They'll also have their own photos available as well.

Autograph prices are determined by the actors/guests - they tend to range from $10-$25 depending on the actor/guest. That's solely based on previous Gatecon events. The prices could be entirely different this year.

I did, 2 was ago, but will do it again

Not sure if you meant 'years' or 'weeks' - 2 weeks ago, you're fine; 2 years ago - then you'd need to sign up for this year.

Make sure that you submitted the volunteer form! (Seems like one of those no-brainer things, but sometimes folks forget. *g*)

Just wondering if there will be any Photo Op pre-sale this year?

I *think* Richard said they were doing pre-sale on photo ops. I would guess this would drop next month or so once they get a better idea of who's going to be where when.

I'm going to guess you have to hit a certain number of posts before you're allowed to post external links. It's a spam-prevention measure. I don't know what the number is, but lower than my current post count b/c I can post links.

 yeah weird, because the last time I was here I could post the links. They may have changed it since then???

It's also possibly a wonky software glitch. I know sometime back ppl reported not being able to post links and Richard tinkered with things. But I dunno if that was software gremlins or a setting change.

Oh,guys, can you recommend some proven forum, or other source of information, media, etc., on hard sci-fi - I mean, actually scientifically accurate fiction - so theory-based, but a little out of the line??

much thanks if there is a person who can say sth about a place like that

 Hi Aikon,

 You could check out Lost Worlds, we have a wide range of stuff there worth looking into and if it ain't there now we can create it.  ;D apparently we're not allowed to post external links? But I can PM you if you like.

I can't believe you forgot to mention that it was used in, at least, one episode of MacGyver. *smh*   =)

I've returned from my business trip. I'm ready for banquet ticket sales and learning the date of the film location tour(Richard mentioned it could possibly moved to Thursday Sept 13, 2018)


Neither of these have been announced yet. It'll go up somewhere very visible when it happens.

I'm hoping for Tom McBeath and Carmen Argenziano.

Both lovely gentlemen. =)

Just think yourself lucky I never got to do my 24 convention idea - running a con for 24 hours straight 😣

The following takes place between 3am and 4am.....

don't we do that already anyway? when the heck do you sleep?

Yup I thought we'd try something different this time - more guests than attendees, with the attendees sitting behind tables and the guests line up to sign things.
Actually..... 😜
What a Concept!  I'm game.  Just as long as I don't have to do any panels.

You haven't heard? The guests are gonna sit in the audience and ask YOU questions! =)

Okay, don't get your panties in a bunch...

This right here is not an appropriate response in a conversation. It's considered a personal attack and can get you banned. This is just an FYI.


And since it appears that you're only here to run your personal convention agenda, I'll invite you to create your own convention to show us how you would do it better.

Would love to be able to go to this, would having. The regular tickets which are 199$ limit your chance at autographs and seeing the actor/actresses? Or would it just be seating and entry being a longer wait? Sorry never been to a convention before. Thanks for any help!

While your panel seat will be nearer to the back of the auditorium, you'll be able to see and hear the guests on stage.

For autographs - only the Platinum tier has the super-special extra 15-ish minutes into the room, after that it's all aboard! The autograph room is usually a little hectic, but moves pretty quickly, since the guests are spread out around the room. So if the line is long for the guest you want, hop over to a different one to snag their autograph first, then check the line for the first guest. Or, wait in the line for the first one - the lines usually move pretty quickly since Gatecon typically limits folks to 2 items per trip through the line. (this keeps folks from hogging the guest with 15 items at a time.)

Outside of that, some of the guests just wander around the hotel as they please and, if they're not motoring somewhere (like an audition or the restroom), they're usually happy to stop and chat for minute. (If you think they're on a mission somewhere, just let 'em roll by and maybe catch 'em on the way back or a little later.)

While Gatecon tries to get everyone through the photo sessions, it isn't always feasible, so Copper tickets *may* not get in. (Don't fret too much over this, since the team is still working out all of the photo session logistics and things are always changing.)

Feel free to ask any other questions you have! =)
