This whole ordeal is just horrific. I planned on getting my very first AA table this year but decided against it when staff was unresponsive. Now to hear this all (I read all 25 pages of the feedback on the forums), I'm glad I didn't but sickened for what you and others went through.
And just when I went to give Aki-con my two cents on what they did in my previous forum post asking for info, I find that it and almost the entire forum have been locked down. It's unbelievable.
As I already said to Nuriko-Kun here on DA, I hope you and the other artists either take the head of Aki-con to Small Claims Court or form a class action lawsuit to right this situation. It's appalling how you were treated and are continuing to be treated.
