Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Okay, PAX Hotel registration is open, and the rooms won't last forever. Let others share the cost, or find someone to room with. Here's how it works:
If you have a registered room:
Enter the following information: Hotel: (Doubletree/Hilton, Red Lion, etc.) Room Type: (ex.: 2 Queen Beds) Nights Staying: (ex.: nights of the 24th, 25th, 26th & 27th. Make a note if it's all-or-nothing) Beds Available: (Don't forget your own bed!) Total Price for a Bed: (For all nights, assuming it is filled to capacity) Bags Available: Total Price for a Bag: (Same as above) Smoking: (Yes or No) Contact:(This is where your email goes, or just have them PM you)
1) Don't post an opening until you have reservation # in hand. Rooms fill up quick, so you can't count on one being available for walk-ins.
2) Remember Washington State's 14.4% hotel tax in your room rates, unless you're extraordinarily generous.
3) When the first person checks in, his or her card will have a reservation placed on it for the full amount for everyone, which is then freed up in pieces as your guests pay. This is just how hotels work, and yes, it sucks.
4) Finally, remember to update your infopost as slots fill (and/or empty)
If you're looking for a room:
Read down the list until you find a suitable room with an available slot that meets your needs. Contact the room holder to reserve it.
As of now, I'm making my room available. Rates are up from last year, but are still the same split between all occupants (1/3 for bed, 1/6th for bags)
