A review/discussion panel about obscure 90s cartoons. There are many fun and interesting cartoons that have slipped in the cracks over the years. It would be fun to show them again. It would be a review/discussion panel which shows a cartoon that may have been forgotten; gives an overview, review, and opinion; then direct some talk about it before moving to the next show. This panel is to give fun recommendations and to enjoy the unique and creative cartoons of the nineties.

Learn how to grow your social media presence

So you’ve found yourself at a Meet and Greet panel. You’ll notice that these panels may or may not have a designated host. The purpose of a meet and greet panel, is to meet other people who share a common “thing”! That thing could be that your fursona or characters share the same species, or maybe you share a similar hobby, or interest! You might be new to the fandom and just want to make some new friends, or you’ve been around a while and want to share some insight and stories with other likeminded furs! So here’s just a few tips on what to do at a Meet and Greet! Step 1: Introductions! Go around and everyone should introduce themselves, you can give your real name, or fandom name, whatever you prefer people call you. Briefly tell everyone a little about yourself in relation to the topic of the meet and greet, ie: how long have you been into a certain hobby, or if it’s a species panel tell the group about your character, or your passion for the animal. Step 2: Just start talking! Take turns telling stories, or asking questions about the topic at hand. If you’re talking about wolves, maybe discuss their conservation or interesting facts about the animal, or even just why you like being a wolf! If the topic is photography ask questions like how you can achieve X with your photos, while doing Y. Step 3: No really, it’s that simple! The sky is the limit, and as long as everyone keeps talking, it’s a successful panel! Hopefully at the end of the panel you have a new friend who shares a similar interest as you! When the meet and greet has ended, please do you your part to make sure everyone has cleaned up after themselves, so that the next meet has a nice clean space! Also do try to be mindful of the time limits set, and if another group is waiting to use the space to start their panel, wrap things up! We hope you have fun, and thanks again for making our first year a great one!
