I've decided to take charge of this one and submit a panel proposal for Anime Speed Dating. There will be three types available, one standard, one for "ladies only", and one for "gentlemen only". I've got a planned outline for how to run each one, and they will probably be back-to-back-to-back just so we don't have to rearrange all the tables and chairs.
I'll be making an official post here on the forums soon (maybe tomorrow), to ask people to reserve spots ahead of time. Since we'll be operating under a time restriction, I can only accommodate so many participants, so reservation is preferred. If we reach our cap in reservations, there will still be a drop-in possibility if any of the reserved participants don't show up. I remember this being a crazy-popular event at AE 2009, but I have to work with what I have.
I'll post the rules and procedure for each panel separately, and have you reserve your spots with your name, age, email address, etc. I know we're still five months away, but there's no sense leaving it to the last minute. If you sign up early and happen to meet someone before the event, feel free to drop out, because we could use the spot.
Also, this seems like a no-brainer, but I'll throw it out there anyway: Some of our attendees are coming a long way to be here, as far as Victoria, Chilliwack, Edmonton, Seattle, or even further. If you don't live within reasonable travel distance of Vancouver, I doubt you're going to get much out of speed dating, unless you're into long distance dating.
