You can choose for messages to go to the Other folder. It's less obvious but it'll still get there w/o the stupid $1 charge.

But yes, friend request is also an option.

Again, apologies for going off topic - back to your regularly scheduled programming.

realized that. But you're never notified when something is in the Other folder. At least I never am and I've had stuff sent to it before.

you need to remember to check the 'other' folder, hence Khannn's recommendation to check your other folder

dialogue666

Hotel:
Crown Plaza
2270 Hotel Circle North
San Diego, CA

Days Booked:
Check in: 17th, Check out:22nd (IMPORTANT! The last night was not charged to my account so it may be on you to pay that one. I added the night after I made the initial reservation and they said the computer was NOT set up for adding additional nights. Whatever that means. So, as of right now the reservation is ON for Check in 17th, Check out: 21st.)

Price: Pre-paid but I need to transfer reservation before March 11th. Paid $169.00/night [$676.00 + taxes] "Make me an offer"

Smoking/Drinking: Non-smoking room

Spaces Left: Wide open. there were going to be two of us.

Preferences and Description:
This is a 2 queen bed room. I pre-paid it and then got locked out (like a bunch of us did) of the badge-purchase process so now I'm stuck with a room I won't need. I'm looking to move it ASAP and will have a PayPal account set up soon. Interested parties please e-mail me @ [email protected] Thanks and congrats!

Marriott Marquis and Marina, right next to the convention center
Same place as last year!

4 people - $350/person ($1400 room+tax+expenses / 4)
6 people - $230/person ($1400/6)
8 people - $175/person
10 people - $140/person

minimum 4 people
maximum 10 people

contact: techpoc *at* gmail.com

Most of the congoers I know will just use the place to shower, store stuff, and maybe sleep for a few hours.
Last year everyone went to camp out in Hall H, barely anyone was actually in the room.
So I don't really differentiate between floor and bed or the number of nights you use.
Neither do I run female-only/male-only rooms or provide food.

* I try my best to be fair to all I deal with, to the point that I will re-split room costs and make it lower for you when people, and personally absorb the cost of no-shows rather than force an unexpected price increase on others.

* To reduce the no-show problem, deposits may be requested from new members.

* I expect people to be responsible for their own stuff, to act honestly, and to secure their valuables just in case.
(There were some questions about last year's "I have no liability for your items" disclaimer. I've NEVER had a problem in my rooms, but this rule is there because of the stories I've heard about other rooms at Fanime, etc.)

* This also means no room damage, no causing problems with the hotel, and no running up service charges.

* Males and females welcome. I'm not a creep, and no creeps are allowed.
(Again, I've never had a problem with creeps. But it needs to be mentioned.)

* The room is quiet.

Name: coletteingrid

Hotel: San Diego Marriott Mission Valley.  (was on Purple shuttle route last year and is steps away from the is the Rio Vista trolley stop)

Days Booked: 6! Tuesday 7/16 — Monday 7/22 (check in 4pm; check out 11am)

Price: $180/night plus tax = $203/per night.  For 2 people, $101.50 per night, for 4 people $50.80 per night.  Final Total =  $1217.76 for six nights.

Smoking/Drinking:
Hotel is non smoking, but the room has a balcony, so...  & drinking is not up to me.

Spaces Left:
4.
I don’t actually need the room.  I have a space in another hotel, but I got this room as a safety net during the hotel pre-sale (which is why the rate is only $180/night and not $195).  Since I already paid, I merely want to be reimbursed, but I could be flexible on the price if you don't need the room all 6 days.

Preferences and Description:
What type of room is it, and how many people can it fit? 

Double w/ 2 queen sized beds for 4 people. 325 sqft/29 sqm. Air-conditioned. Room has a balcony, total size 15sqft/1sqm and a living/sitting area.

Do you have an age or gender preference for roommates?

No.  Since I am giving up the room, I don’t have the right to dictate.  But whomever takes the room first will have free reign to select roomies.

Include a brief description about yourself:

Not that you will have to room with me, but I am a public high school English teacher living and working in NYC.  Last semester I gifted my 10 most motivated and most improved students copies of Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One with music playlists.

Specific behavioral preferences for roommates?

Again, see above.

We can discuss PayPal options and we can set up the name transfer any time.  As I said the room is there, and having any room, even in Mission Valley beats camping out in Hall H or sleeping in a parking garage. Unless that’s your thing, then . . .. Email me.
