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

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.

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 WonderCon.

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.

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:
3. Fill out the "Subject" box with "WonderCon 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!

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.

Name: Freight
Hotel Area/Name of Hotel: Anaheim Hilton
Days: Fri, March 31 to Sun, April 2
Price Per Night: $55 per night
Smoking/Drinking: No
Spaces: 1

Preferences and Description:  I prefer respectful and clean people.  I will probably be somewhat chatty, but if you aren't interested, I won't press the point.  It is a Dual Queen Bed room at the Anaheim Hilton
Age Preference of Roommates: 21+, thought I may take people 18+ after a couple of emails and convernsation.
Gender Preference of Roommates: co-ed.  I'm too married to get into trouble.  =)
Include a brief description about yourself: I have media duties during the weekend, so I may be in and out a lot.  I'm going to be 40 this year, but I'm still a determined nerd, so I will be respectful of everything you bring. 
Additional preferences for roommates: I'm not a drinker, and I just ask you don't get fall down drunk.  I've had too many weekends of peeling people off of a floor.
