Convention season's rushing towards us and I thought you guys should know my top five things not to do at cons.


Conventions are tons of fun, generally speaking-- but what are your con pet peeves? Anyone?

TWEENS. My dear God I fucking hate them; there needs to be a separate set of activities in a seperate area to occupy them, especially at night when all the over 18 panels are going on and they can't get into the rave because there's too many people. My major pet peeves have to do with panels and the people in them.  I hate people talking loudly and just being obnoxious and stupid in panels. I'm okay with quiet talking/whispering, particularly if it relates to the discussion. Going to a panel just to have a place to sit and talk is not cool, particularly when the talking is so loud nobody can hear what the panelists have to say. I also hate it when people go to a panel just because they're bored and have nothing to do. Vying with the funk for #1 grossest thing is people not dressing according to their body types.

You can be the nicest person in the world, but if you smell like an arse nobody will want to talk to you.

People who are impatient, you know; we're all in the same boat together so we may as well TRY to have fun while we're waiting around :).

This reminds me of the con disaster of Anime-Expo '07 AMVs which we waited in line for at least 3 hours I would say. We ended up making friends with all sorts of people making silly signs and telling jokes, pulled out the DS'es and started up Mario Kart matches, etc. People just need to realize that not everything is going to go as planned and you need to go with the flow and enjoy yourself ^_^

More concert-specific than con-specific, but line-cutters. Holy shit, guys, what the fuck??

Other than that, few things bother me. I've built up a high tolerance over the years. Tweenies running around screaming? Whatever... Just don't mess up my artists' table and we're cool.

High-pitched screaming and squeeing. Gets on my nerves.

Your list was really good, and I liked the emphasis on reading the rules.

I hate hate hate hate people taking pictures in the Dealers' Room smack dab in the middle of the aisle. I wanna look through the different wares and not have to go around you please kthnxbai.

I've become immune to the "SQUEE~" of fangirls, though it'd be nice of they didn't "squee" for every bloody yaoi/bishi thing ever.

My biggest pet peeve is the con itself, i'm rather paranoid when it comes to big, loud crowded places.
