For better or worse, Katsucon's merchant/Alley/crafter application is up. This year's application lets you put in for . . . everything. All at once. Seriously, it's a one-stop form for merchants, artists, crafters, webcomickers, clubs, and other conventions.
There's no notice of whether or not crafters who registered as small businesses will be banned from the crafter section of the Alley, as we were told we'd be last year. There's also no word about the big "changes" that were supposedly coming--and no word to the crafters & artists upset by last year's misdeeds, despite how it's been more than nine months since the first problems came up and emails to the con chair went out.
