FanimeCon '94 Date[edit]

The heading says February 19, the text says April. An announcement on UseNet says June 19. Which is correct? -- Seitz 19:21, 13 May 2006 (UTC)


Anime-Con report seems like a pretty good source. I think that February is the correct date. --Ayame The Wolf 19:26, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

I tend to believe the UseNet announcent. It was made at the time of the convention, and is supported by at least one other UseNet article. Can someone find the source for "anine-cons.com" date? -- Seitz 19:35, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
It appears Anime-Con is user editable by anyone, just like Wikipedia. But they don't show when the information was entered nor by whom. I've sent them a message asking if they can identify their source. -- Seitz 19:42, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
AnimeCons.com is NOT user editable by anyone! (It's not a wiki and all update requests are verified as much as possible before being posted.) However, I do not recall the source of that information since it was entered so long ago. It appears the actual date was June 19, 1994 and that it was mistakenly listed as February 19th. Seeing as how most of the dates for the next few years were in February, it seems like an easy mistake to make. ...as for Fanime's program guide saying that the first one was in early April 1994, I don't know. I'm more inclined to believe June given the Usenet history. --PatrickD 21:24, 14 May 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, I misunderstood how the AnimeCons.com "submit update" form worked. Thank you for the correction. -- Seitz 03:51, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Info[edit]

How does everyone feel about adding more indepth info on each years con? IE: Notable problems, issues, public response, etc. I got this idea reading about 2005's con, in which the stam rally was cancelled the day after is started. -- 69.233.222.102 02:13, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

While said information would be interesting, I don't find it particularly vital. However, a complaints section might be a nice idea. -- Jelly Soup 05:00, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
I'm in the process of summing all of the years with dates, locations, attendance, and guests into one table. That alone will cut the size of the article down quite a bit. Any additional info can be incorporated into one or more paragraphs in the "History" just before a "Previous conventions" subsection if third party sources can be found. The biggest problem is that all of the "history" on the article is entirely based on two primary sources. --Farix (Talk) 14:16, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
Took me a couple of weeks, but it's been done. --Farix (Talk) 12:32, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Another source for you[edit]

San Jose Mercury News (CA); 05/28/2007 "Animation Nation." If you can find it, use it. If you need a copy, msg me. I got it from EBSCOhost. Kopf1988 23:10, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Convention Information[edit]

I don't know if this is the right place, but I've been a guest at Fanime from 2001 to 2007 (and I hope to continue to be a guest for the future Fanimes). The Wiki post for Fanime used to reflect this, but now I'm not listed for certain years. I tried to correct this, but it seems my corrections keep vanishing (could be my fault... still new to this wiki-editing-stuff). I am the voice actor Jonathan C. Osborne and I can attest to having been a guest of Fanime for all the years from 2001 to 2007. Thank you.

Information on Wikipedia must be verified. When the article was cleanedup, it used the information published by an independent third-party source, AnimeCons.com. Wikipedia can only publish what has already been published by reliable third-party sources, see Wikipedia:Verifiability. If the independent third-party source is wrong, then you need to contact them in order for them to correct it on their end. --Farix (Talk) 20:14, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
Ok... they got it updated on AnimeCons.com. Whenever you can update the information will be great! Thanks! -Jonathan —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.13.165.3 (talk) 02:55, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

More info about the Con?[edit]

The article seems to be rather vague and list-like in its description at the moment. I was thinking about fleshing it out- maybe adding more about the specific activities...or at least add something about Artist's alley? Anyone know any sources aside from the Fanime website I could use? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.247.183.183 (talk) 04:42, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
