I will occasionally cull posts from the thread that have been struck out or marked as no longer valid.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 things went south. If you abuse this, your ability to post in this thread will be revoked entirely.

    Additional Notes: This is my 7th PAX East (been there since day one). I'm hoping to room with people who respectful and courteous of their room-mates. I had a bad experience last year and I would very much like to not repeat it. I'm not a party guy, but I'm not going to hold anyone back from having fun. I lived in the city for 4 years so I know my way around (mostly) and am fine with playing tour guide or finding places to eat. I know a great Chinese restaurant in China Town. :biggrin:

    Additional Notes:
    Hey there! I’m Sara Winters a cosplayer and one of the consulting Extra Credits writers, I’ve been doing room share three years now and made some great new friends! A few minor things-
    1. Walking distance to con! I can’t drive and don’t want to rely on Lyft in cosplay. I’d prefer something within 15-20 min walk.
    2. I’m a cosplayer, so I have more luggage than normal (maybe less than a BYOC abut still). I also teach the electronics/robotics panel of its accepted agin, so yes, I’ll have some somewhat fragile robots to play with too.
    3. I’m legally blind. I don’t want to trip on you or your stuff, and I’m sure you don’t want to be tripped on. No overcrowded rooms. Max of 4 other people in a hotel room pleade, preferably 3 others for a total of four.
    4. I am allergic to cannabis! I don’t care what y’all do in your personal time, and this isn’t me being a prude. Even if you have it for medical reasons I can’t be within contact of it, and that includes airborne particulate, especially in close quarters. I only bring this ya because a previous room share had medical marijuana- I /will/ break out in really nasty hives and would rather minimize the exposure to it. Thanks.

    My room share of a few years fell apart, work and stuff, so I’m at the mercy of the share thread.

    I’m pretty quiet, the only partying I plan on doing is a pub crawl hopefully. Other than that, I’m really laid back, I don’t care if others want to stay up and party.

    Additional Notes/Requests: I've gone to East the past 2 years, but my fiance really hates the cold weather so she isn't up to it this year. Just looking for someone to share the cost of the room with if possible! I don't party or go out at all past 7pm very much, but if you do that's fine with me as long as you're not loud past like 2am. I'm super laid back and don't need much room besides the bed space, so if you have cosplay or anything else I'm cool with it. If you don't like talking or wanna be social, I'm completely down with that. I'm not very talkative usually so don't expect much from me as a roommate :)

    The room has 2 separate beds, but if you have a someone coming with you that's fine as well, they're with you or on the floor w/ a mattress.

    Your Gender: No preference
    Best Contact Method: Email - ben [dot] paddon [at] gmail [dot] com

    Additional Notes: I'm gently disabled. I use a cane to help me get around. Proximity to the convention center would be preferred, otherwise my legs will fall off and I will die. Or, y'know, I'll just be in excruciating pain. I need to keep costs down - I've been able to get my flight for free thanks to some Southwest credits, but I need to keep the cost of the hotel down as low as possible - I'd either need something cheap, or someone willing to let me pay them my portion of the room in two halves later in the month and/or the following month.

    Pros of being in a room with me: I'm British! Feel free to ask me questions about the Queen or whatever. Plus I have a near-encyclopedic knowledge of Doctor Who, so that's fun too. This is my first PAX East, and I'm doing a one-man show about video game ports on Sunday, so I'm excited to see what that Boston PAX vibe is like.

    Room is a 2 bed room and mainly looking to split with one, but am fine with 2 as long as long as both wish to share the bed, or one wants to use a cot/air mattress/sleeping bag. Bed guaranteed to first down payment of $200 (based on ~50% of a 3 person split).

    I am more of a late night person, don't know if anything will spill into the room or not. It usually doesn't, but it is likely that post 2am entrances will occur.

    Additional Notes:

    This will be my 6th roomshare with this fine community (mainly pinny pals)! Would strongly prefer Westin, but Element or Aloft are also good. Ideal situation would be in a room with 4+ people to save money. Bed space preferred, but if floor is the only thing available for the right price I can explore that route as well. Not a partier, typically go to sleep early-ish and wake up early to go line up for pin things. I bring a little portable fan for some background white noise if you're into that kind of thing!
