Room Shares - trying out a new policy, so please read the OP

edited December 2015 in PAX South
We are going to try out a new policy for this PAX and see how it goes. While strict enforcement of the one post per person rule has cut down heavily on the reposting to get on the front page, it has also caused some problems with posts that need modified late in the game but are stuck on an old page.

There is still a one post per person policy, but I will be starting to cull posts from the thread that have been struck out or marked as no longer valid. I will try to do this as necessary, but there will not be a hard schedule for this purpose. This will mean that there should not be a wall of inactive posts to sift through in order to find active ones. Also it means that if someone had a post that was culled from early on, they can freely re-post it later if shit went south. If you abuse this, your ability to post in this thread will be revoked entirely.

----

Post here if you are looking to share your room, or looking for a room to share. Please keep your posts up to date!

YOU MAY NOT POST HERE TO TRADE ROOM SPACE FOR BADGES.

You get ONE post in this thread per UNIQUE room share situation. Do not re-post your offer/request. Re-posts will be deleted.

If you need to modify your post and cannot edit it yourself (accounts below a certain participation threashold), PM me and I will make the edit for you. Not having permission to edit is not a valid excuse for re-posting.

If you *really* think you have a good reason to post for a second time, PM me first.

This is not a discussion thread; ONLY POSTS IN THE DESCRIBED FORMATS BELOW WILL BE ALLOWED.

If you have a room and want to fill space, use this format:

    Additional Notes: Non smokers only please. I am looking to stay at one of the Hotels close to the convention center (Grand Hyatt, Marriott, Hilton). I would prefer a bed spot (I don't mind sharing).
    I am a father of two that is fairly quiet and would probably be spending very little time in the room.

    Edit: found a room.

I can also give a ride to a person or two from Austin that needs one, but I will be driving back home after the con ends on Sunday. (Didn't find a good reason to stay around for a whole extra night last year.)

You will have your own room and a private bathroom unless more than 2 people end up staying. You'll have access to a full kitchen, laundry, and you're within walking distance of pretty much any major store or food chain you can think of (Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Chilis, Fridays, Longhorn, etc.). We live in a very safe neighborhood, and you're welcome to carpool with us for an extra $25 for gas for the whole weekend. PLEASE NOTE that we have a dog and cats. They are all very friendly, but will pretty much keep to themselves. Please PM me if you're interested or you have any questions.

    Additional Notes:

    I've been to PAX East three times, but this will be my first non-Boston PAX, and I'm pumped! AirBNB referrals here, if that stuff means something to you.

    I'd love somewhere close enough to bus (or especially walk) to PAX, but beggars can't be choosers. I'm respectful of others and their property, know how a shower works, etc etc. I'd love to stay with people who are fun/nerdy/talkative, but that's more of a bonus than a requirement.

    I also have an air mattress I can bring if we're low on space.

    Cheers,
    Jeff
