Hello, anon, and happy new year to you too!
While I thank you so much for your suggestion, I’ll be awfully busy with exams during all February, so I won’t be able to organize anything for Valentine’s day.
I’m also sorry you had negative experiences within the fandom.
However, I’m not a supporter of unproductively comparing initiatives created by the fans for the fans, as planning a festival requires a lot of hard work which the organizers are doing solely so the fandom can have fun and be creative.
I appreciate the fact you seem to like the idea behind the Rarefest, but I’d suggest, if you have solid ideas on how to improve the other fest you’re talking about, or constructive complaints to make on the same matter, to contact the creators, so that your advices can be turned into something useful for their work.
