General rules

Registration and Payment

Members of WUFF Registration Team have the right to deny your registration, basing their decision on the history of your previous payments, your behavior or any other reasons which prove that you can cause discomfort to other attendees or damage WUFF reputation. If your registration will be denied, members of WUFF Registration Team also have the right to not provide you any explanations.

To become a WUFF-attendee you will need to register on the official website. Attendee-packages purchased from other resources will not be valid. Every attendee form is checked manually by one of the WUFF Registration Team members. After your registration will be approved, you will get access to the payment page. If your payment will not be processed in 24 hours, you should contact our Registration Team.

There are two types of registration: Attendee and Guest:

 

You can register as attendee only if you are 18+ y.o. and you will be asked to show your government-issued ID during your registration in the hotel. If you are under 18 y.o., then you can participate in WUFF events only as guest. And if you are under 16 y.o., then you can not participate in WUFF events and stay in the hotel at all.

Your payment (including sponsor’s upgrade) is not refundable with the exception of special cases approved by Board of Directors and cannot be counted as next year’s payment. In order to sell (or gift) your registration to another person, both of you need to contact our Registration Team and confirm that you agree on selling (gifting) / buying this particular attendee-package. Attendee-package transfer will be valid only with the approval from Registration Team.

WUFF we have “complete purchase” system. It means we cannot guarantee you and the roommate you have selected that you will be living together if you have selected different date of arrival and (or) room type. If we will not be able to find you a roommate, we will try to solve this issue individually. We also want to remind you that we have the right to change your room type to a cheaper one and compensate you the difference in the price. We hope for your understanding.

Guests can register at WUFF during the whole duration of the convention. You will need to register in order to get your guest-badge and registration number which will allow you to participate in WUFF events.

Arrival

Guests are allowed to be in the hotel from 09:00 till 22:00. (Guest may stay in the hotel after 22:00 if he will purchase an “upgrade” for his registration)

Guest registration has multiple steps.

  1. If the guest has not been registered yet, he will need to go through this procedure first.
  2. After arriving to the hotel, guest will be asked to go to ConOps or registration desk to pay the fee and get his badge.
  3. After paying the fee, guest will receive his badge. If the guest had the badge before, but lost (or forgot it), he will also need to pay for the new badge.
  4. After getting the badge and registration number, guest will be added to our database. This is a mandatory procedure.

You will break WUFF rules if:

WUFF Staff members will offer you to buy this “upgrade” and, if you will deny the offer, you will be banned at WUFF for 1 year (from the ban date till the end of next WUFF convention). Information about this incident will also be forwarded to Staff Teams of our partners — Cesfur, Confuzzled, Gdakon, Eurofurence, Nordicfuzzcon and Wuff.

Upgrades

Every guest can become an attendee if he will purchase one of the rooms in the hotel for the rest of convention — this option will be available only if there will be any available rooms in the hotel.

If guest wants to stay for one night, he can pay the “sharing” fee, but you need to remember that this option is not available for all room types.

You can discuss upgrade options in ConOps.

Rules for underaged guests

Guests under age of 18 can register and stay in the hotel from 09:00 till 22:00 only by providing additional form, filled and signed by one of their parents (or legal guardian).

Guests under age of 18 cannot attend events marked as “18+”, visit adult section of our Art Show and be at adult part of our Auction.

Guests under age of 18 cannot submit adult art in any forms for the Art Show themselves, but can submit them with the help of representative who is 18+ y.o.

Guests under age of 18 are not allowed to stay in the hotel after 22:00. If underaged guest will be found in the hotel after 22:00, our security team will contact his parents (or legal guardian) and will send this guest home via taxi. Taxi fee will be paid by the guest or his parent (legal guardian) and guest will be banned at WUFF for the remaining days of convention.

Guests under age of 16 are not allowed.

Board of Directors has the right to change the rules, listed above, by having an agreement with one of the guest’s parents (or legal guardian).
