It wasn't your imagination. The floor was so much more crowded than last year. My friend talked to a woman who’d been attending for 20 years, and she was not at all pleased with the change in crowd from last year to this year. The lines are getting ridiculous. Yes on clearing the rooms. People who park themselves in the seats all day ruin things for everyone. It's a bit of a relief to know that other people are noticing it too and not just the nobody geeks like me. The only down side is that it would be unfair for people who actually wanted to see back to back panels in the same room. (But maybe the up side would outweigh that down side.) I wrote to SDCC after last year (like I said, I’m a geek) to ask if they planned to do anything to improve the lines, but got no answer. No surprise to see the problem just got worse this year. I personally made the mistake of thinking I could pre reg (4 hour line, starting at 6:30am) and also have any chance to make it to the only panel I really wanted to go to in the whole con (which was at 2pm) in the same day. Foolish girl! For me, Comic Con itself was pretty much a bust. The most fun I had this year was at events outside the con. We did a scavenger hunt for Nerd HQ (I'm such a nerd, I was excited to do it even before I realized there was any prize at all, much less an xbox), w00tstock, Nerd HQ panels, Donald Glover concert, and Nerdist podcast. Previously, my friends and I bought 4 day passes, but this year, I couldn't justify the cost, considering all I was actually able to do without excessive line waiting was walk the exhibit hall floor. I bought passes for two days, but now that it's over, I might just ask for a refund and only go one day. You, Zac Levi, Chris Hardwick and Donald Glover made it worth making the trip to San Diego and make me look forward to next year. Also, it was a nice surprise to see you at the Nerdist podcast. You were hilarious!
