In order to ensure a safe and family friendly environment, The Otaku Fellowship Society (OFS) requires that you obey the following rules. By purchasing your membership here on the site, at the door, or at an authorized retailer, you agree to the following:
Membership (Badge) Rules:
This is not a physical ticket. To pickup pre-registration, you must bring a copy of your pre-registration receipt and a picture government issued ID (Drivers Licence, ID Card, Passport, Military ID) or a picture ID from a high-school or place of higher education to the convention. If you are purchasing a badge for someone else, please write their full name that matches their name on their ID in the “Add additional notes to merchant” section during check out.
Membership Badges must be worn at all times during the convention above the waist on the front of your torso where it is easily visible for staff and other attendees. Your membership badge is the property of the Otaku Fellowship Society until the end of the event. It may be repossessed at any time by OFS staff for any rule violation. If you lose your badge, please notify the Registration Desk. There is a replacement fee of $10 per lost badge.
Anything that is illegal outside of the convention is illegal inside the convention. Harassment is not tolerated. The OFS is committed to providing an experience that is fun for everyone involved. With this in mind dedicated to providing a harassment-free convention for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of convention participants in any form. Harassment includes, but is not limited to: offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion; deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. If you believe that you are being harassed by another person please tell the offending person in a clear and unambiguous manner that their conduct is unwelcome and that you want it to stop. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If said conduct does not cease after you have warned them, please speak to a staff member of the OFS.
During the convention we have a standard two strike policy. The first time that you are warned for breaking a rule or doing something that a staff member feels is inappropriate your badge bottom corner will be cut off. If you have to be warned a second time your badge will be confiscated with no refund, and you will be escorted off of the premises. OFS staff can decide to forgo the 1st strike if we feel that it is warrantied.
If staff believes anyone to be breaking laws, or causing a serious disruption, including damage to facilities or posing a danger to other attendees or staff, SAPD will be summoned. OFS staff reserves the right to revoke your badge for any reason with no refund. All Staff decisions are final!
All OFS events are alcohol and drug free (except where noted by law.) If you come to any OFS event under the influence of alcohol (or other substances) you will be asked to leave. If you are caught providing alcohol or drugs to anyone at the convention you will be banned from OFS events permanently. Vaping is prohibited in all parts of the convention that doesn’t have signage that says otherwise.
There are NO REFUNDS for convention badges. This includes, but is not limited to, fees for membership badges, advertisements, and Dealer/Artist tables.
All children under the age of 12 must be escorted by a parent or guardian at ALL TIMES. Children 10 and under are free with the purchase of a membership badge for their parent or guardian.
You must be at least 16 years of age to purchase a membership to any OFS conventions.
