Please read the Convention rules thoroughly, it’s really not very long and was written so that You and Us as well would all have a problem free 4 days together!
Not knowing the Convention Rules will not exempt you from following them. „I didn’t know about this or that rule.” or anything similar will not be accepted as a valid excuse.
Should you have any questions about the Conventions Rules feel free to contact Red at the firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail address.
Use common sense. If you do the chances of anything going wrong is low.
Only registered attendees may attend the WILDCARD convention and its events. To register you have to be at least 18 or older.
During the registration process you must provide accurate personal data. If you do not we may not be able to book a hotel room for you. If it is ascertained that you deliberately provided false information you will be expelled from the convention.
During the convention the organizers will do anything in their power to establish a safe environment for attendees. However, the organizers can not and will not take any responsibility for their irresponsible behaviour and actions of attendees.
As an attendee please be respectful to other attendees, don’t cause a scandal or a fight if you are in disagreement with someone. The Organizers may intervene if necessary but will not act as your personal judge and/or bodyguard. In serious cases or in case of „repeat offenders” the organizers reserve the right to expel attendees.
Respect the personal space of others and remember that they may have a different opinions about physical contact than you. Do not be pushy, intrusive or rude.
As an attendee please avoid causing damage, dirt, disturbance both in the Hotel and at any location during WILDCARD. The Organizers do not accept any responsibility for any damages, and in serious cases may expel you from the convention.
PUBLIC CLOTHING AND CONDUCT
What happens behind closed doors is no business of the Organizers until it does not disturb other attendees or visitors (for example excessive noise).
In the common spaces of the Hotel and on WILDCARD events taking place in the Hotel or the city however you must be discreet (PG-13) in clothing and behavior.
Basically this means that suggestive and adult themes, content, clothing, accessories and behavior are not permitted.
As WILDCARD is the first larger furry event in the city we ask all attendees to take this rule especially seriously to avoid causing embarrassment to themselves and the organizers.
In Hungary the minimum legal age of alcohol consumption is 18 years. You can buy alcohol in most shops and large shopping centers, however cashiers may ask for some form of identification to verify that you are 18 or older.
During WILDCARD on the public or private events the organizers expect you to be reasonable with your alcohol consumption, do not exceed your limits. Other than that we do not wish to limit you in any way.
The minimum legal age of tobacco consumption is also 18 years. Tobacco products can only be purchased at the state-controlled „Nemzeti Dohánybolt” („National Tobacconist”) stores, where they also have the right to ask for identification to verify your age.
Hungarian laws are relatively strict when it comes to restrictions to where you can smoke: generally you cannot smoke indoors in hotels, restaurants, pubs/bars and many other facilities unless there is an officially designated smoking area.
Be sure to consult the organizers about where you are allowed to smoke on Hotel premises.
Hungarian drug laws are quite harsh compared to countries in the region. All narcotics – including marijuana – are illegal. The possession and consumption of even marginal amounts is punishable by up to 2 years in jail.
During WILDCARD the possession and consumption of any illegal substances is strictly forbidden!
WEAPONS AND REPLICAS
In Hungary the possession and carry of firearms is strictly restricted, gas pistols/weapons and rubber projectile weapons are less controlled but their carry require permits, and „objects resembling weapons” (for example airsoft weapons) are a legal grey area.
Additionally knives, daggers, swords etc. with an 8cm or longer blade are considered to be „exceptionally dangerous objects”, and the Police has the right to confiscate them.
WILDCARD organizers ask attendees not to bring any such objects with themselves
