I had a great time at Botcon, but one of the black marks for me was some of the fan behavior I saw in the audience and in the guest Q&A sessions. Some of the embarrassing things I remember: -A girl who asked Kevin Michael Richardson to wear a stupid soda hat because of an inside joke among her friends. -Multiple people who asked guests, especially Gregg Berger, to sing Happy Birthday or otherwise give a message to some random friend of theirs. One of these people didn't have her camera ready, and made Gregg do it TWICE. -A guy who made hateful comments about Michael Bay in front of the Prime panel. -Another guy was rude to the Hasbro panel because of unreleased Animated toys. -A guy who claimed to have his own animation studio and tried to get the voice actors to work for him. Despite saying that he didn't want to sound creepy, telling the VAs "I have your files" was creepy and stalkerish. -People booing Michael Bay at the HOF (luckily they were FAR outnumbered by the polite people who did applaud, but it was still rude). It embarrasses me as a Transformer fan when I see people behaving rudely in front of guests. One of the things I like about conventions is that it gives TPTB the chance to see that the internet isn't always a true representation of the fandom, and that most fans are fairly normal, well-behaved people. So when fans do things like this in public, I find it depressing. Q&A with the guests is not the time to beg for work, or vent fanboyish anger, or force actors to make jokes that only you and your friends understand. We're lucky to have guests who take the time to come to the con and interact with the fans, and I'm always afraid that this kind of behavior will make them not want to come back. Luckily, MOST of the questions asked were good ones, but there were enough bad ones to make parts of the Q&A uncomfortable.
