SDCC 2020 Room Sharing Thread
« on: January 20, 2020, 12:27:29 AM »
Hi, all!  I apologize for the delay in getting this set up.  I meant to do this at the end of December 2019, but I caught a bad case of the flu during the holidays and spent the last two weeks out sick recovering.  (It has been a slow and rough recovery, unfortunately.  Still coughing quite a bit. >__<)

Nevertheless, here we are!  As usual, please read and follow the thread rules as listed below.



Welcome to the SDCC 2020 Room Sharing Thread!

Kindly follow this format.

Please don't post anywhere else on this site trying to get a roommate for San Diego Comic-Con.  ONLY POST HERE!

Please post only ONCE in this thread (to be considerate of your fellow forum members and to avoid spamming the thread).

Duplicate posts (of your room sharing request), conversations, hotel offers, and hotel trades will be deleted without notice.  You have been warned.  (This is the first and only warning.)

Please note that this thread is for finding roommates for ROOM SHARING ONLY.


PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS THREAD FOR DISCUSSION.  PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS THREAD FOR HOTEL EXCHANGES OR OFFERS.

In an effort to keep things organized and easy to read through, this is for room sharing requests only.

Conversations in this thread may be deleted without warning.

Please edit/modify your post if the spaces in your room have been taken.

This is so that people can see which rooms are available and which aren't.

You can also use the strike-through feature to indicate that your request is closed: [ s]text goes here[/ s]   

Remove the spaces, so it will look like this ==> text goes here



Please note that this thread is for finding roommates for ROOM SHARING ONLY.

This thread is NOT intended for making hotel requests.  It does not replace the hotel exchange in any way, shape, or form.  Please do not post here if you are looking to trade a hotel reservation or get a hotel reservation giveaway.

 
If you post in this thread, please be aware that this means you are saying that you WANT roommates at whatever hotel you end up with.  Provide details about yourself.  Include the description and preferences!

If you post in this thread, this means that you agree to have other forum members contact you via PM for the possibility of sharing a room together at Comic-Con 2020.

We're doing our best to help keep the forums organized for reading and discussing, but we need your help to do this.

Thank you for your understanding!



IDENTIFY THE TYPE OF REQUEST (Select one):

LOOKING FOR A ROOM SHARE (I want to share a room with someone.)

(or)

LOOKING FOR ROOMMATES (I already booked a room and need roommates.)

Name: (This is optional; you can use your forum username instead)

Hotel Area/Name of Hotel: (What is your preferred hotel or area to stay in?)

Days: (Include which days.)

Price Per Night: (For those looking for roommates, YOU NEED TO BE UPFRONT ABOUT THE PRICE IN YOUR POST.  If you want to room share, what is your price range?)

Smoking/Drinking: (Yes or No)

Spaces: (If you're looking for a room share, how many people do you want to be in your room?  If you're looking for roommates, how many spaces are available in your room?  Don't forget to include yourself.)

Preferences and Description:

Age Preference of Roommates:

Gender Preference of Roommates: (Type in "all-male," "all-female," or "co-ed.")

Include a brief description about yourself: (Ex: I am a cosplayer, so I have props and other cosplay items that will take up a portion of the room.  I'm a morning person, so I like to wake up early to get ready for the day.  I prefer non-smoking roommates.)

Additional preferences for roommates: (Ex: I prefer someone who is organized and clean.)

NOTE: Do not add your phone number to your post.  To protect our forum members from potential phone scams, phone numbers will be removed without notice.



DISCLAIMER:

The forum administrators and moderators do not vet individuals that post here!  This thread was created with the intention to provide a designated venue that allows interested individuals to initiate contact with each other for the possibility of sharing a hotel room at San Diego Comic-Con.

Please use your best personal judgement and common sense, and as always, please proceed with caution when arranging any agreements (especially with strangers).  Discuss payment details and rooming expectations thoroughly.



Just a quick word about condo shares:

If you book the condo for a good price, you will find people to share the cost.

Make sure you understand the *total cost.*  This includes taxes and cleaning fees.

You can create a post for condo sharing using the same format as above, but just type "CONDO RENTAL" or "LOOKING FOR CONDO ROOMMATES" at the top, instead of "looking for a room" or "looking for a roommate."  Replace any sections as necessary to describe the condo and explain the pricing costs.



HOW TO CONTACT SOMEONE FOR ROOM SHARES OR ROOMMATES

1. Go to the person's post in this thread.

2. Under the profile photo (or avatar), click on the icon that looks like this: or :

3. Fill out the "Subject" box with "Comic-Con Room Sharing."

4. Type in your message to the other person.  Don't forget to discuss details about the room share thoroughly before making agreements!
 

HOW TO EDIT YOUR POST ON THE FORUMS

1. Click on "Modify" at the top right corner area of your post.

2. Alternatively, you can click on the little paper and pencil icon on the bottom right area of your post.

3. Edit the text as necessary.

4. Click "Save."

5. That's it!  You have successfully edited your post.
 

(This method works for any of your posts on the forums. ^__~)

Guess I'll start this thread off -

LOOKING FOR A ROOM SHARE (I'm considering doing one of the Early Bird rooms to take the risk out of it).

Name: Instagram: CalculatedCosplay, Twitter: CalculatedCosp1

Hotel Area/Name of Hotel: Prefer anything within a reasonable transportation time (~30m or less)

Days: Thurs thru Sunday at least, may make a longer vacation out of the trip.

Price Per Night: ~$200-250/night per room seems reasonable. Maybe more if splitting 3-ways.

Smoking/Drinking: Smoking no, light drinking OK

Spaces: 2 or 3 max for the room, incl. myself. Four seems crowded.

Preferences and Description: Best if you are also looking for a place to crash after long days at the con, and not a party space. I'll be bringing one reasonably-sized cosplay.

Age Preference of Roommates: Don't care

Gender Preference of Roommates: Co-ed

Include a brief description about yourself: I'm an east-coast... nerd?/maker?/gamer?/cosplayer? Lucked out on first attempt at SDCC tickets. Pretty new to cosplay/cons in general. Got Thurs+Sun badges, and will be looking for other stuff to do on off-days.

Additional preferences for roommates: Bonus points if you are also a cosplayer. Bonus-bonus points if you are a cosplayer with some social media to take some of the "who is this stranger?" out of the situation. Bonus-bonus-bonus points if you also like: craft beer, J/RPGs, NieR.
