So... Manifest happened.
There were issues, again. Largest was the smoke bomb someone set off in the traders hall on Saturday leading to an evac of the largest building used by Manifest at Melbourne Showgrounds. Said incident also showed the communication issues and lack of training of certain Manifest staff who insist on having positions they shouldn't. The communication mixups and misunderstanding of the MAFi chain of command (during event and during emergencies) and RASV (venue owners) didn't help much either. >_< (if the building fire alarms are telling you to evac the building, then you evac the building. Not listen to anyone telling you to stay - even if it is a false alarm and/or the people telling you to stay are the venue owners or event head)
Then there were other issues on Sunday relating to what happened on Sunday. Then the internal politics of MAFi. At least one of the problem people has said she would step down from her current role after this year (the result of that could go either way, depending on who replaces her in that role). Though the two people who really need
to step down most likely won't, and it is those two people (and 3 or 4 others) who will end up running Manifest into the ground.
