This is a reminder for those who are eligible to go to the Hotel Exchange section and fill out your information ASAP. You will not be able to do sso after the lottery takes place.

Oh, man, am I so behind on life this year. I'm assuming that I was not near active enough to be eligible. If I did meet the eligibility requirements, would finding the private forum have been pretty obvious? Just making sure that I am not completely missing something sitting right in front of my nose.

Best of luck to everyone!

Sorry but yes, it would have been obvious, and submissions were closed this morning.  Best of luck to you as well!

Veterans will know this but for the newbies double check your credit cards for room.  It would be terrible to actually get in only to have to scramble to find the right card.

Oh no. I'm a lurker, and don't often contribute to any forums, and then I've been SUPER busy this last month, so apparently I missed it. :(

I know this means I'm definitely out for the spreadsheet where you just submit your request and people who have the rooms come to you, but will there still be the form you can post stuff and people can contact you if they want it (the first come first served one)?

I guess I'm going to have to go against my nature and make myself stop lurking and submit a bit more, in future. :(

if last year was any indication, there will probably be less excess rooms this year.
traditionally we have not had an 'overflow' thread. I think that will depend on how the sale is going. Remember most folks, if they have an excess room tend to give it to folks they're familiar with- like in their buying groups etc.

re participating more, during the year we have a fair amount of other topics to contribute too. Local con's, media shows both movies and tv, collectables or just random chat- about the wacky world of non-geeks (so called 'norm's'  see that is  coming back to you [member=3]Chris[/member]).

But there will be an overflow? I know it's not likely, but I found the forum late last year, and actually managed to find a room at the Westin Gaslamp through that second spreadsheet. It was a lifesaver that I am eternally grateful for.

And yes, I know the forum stays pretty active. I was here of and on! I just didn't say much. Clearly that was a mistake.

Ooh, what time Tuesday? We do usually try and get up there a day early, so I will definitely try if we're there in time (depends on work schedules, we're from LA).

it usually starts around 3 or 4, watch for posts from [member=1527]dolphina[/member] she's got a thread somewhere- LOL
and goes till folks peal off for supper plans-
everyone's invited - there isn't any give-aways or anything like that- it just gives us a time to chill once we get into town ;)

There is no magical post count.  There are people with high post counts that were not in the group and people with low post counts that were.  We judged based on forum participation. 

But, as stated, those of us who ran it this year won't be running it this year so there may not be any requirements at all next time.
