Rooms?

Hi! I checked the official MWC website but saw nothing about room reservation notifications going out yet. I only ask because last year I believe it was August when the hotel let people know. Anyone heard anything? Guesses? Rumors? Will-o-the-wisps? ;)

I've been wondering, too.

Check their Facebook page... there were very heated discussions about the reservation process, but in those discussions were also information about when to expect their very overworked volunteer (can't recall her name!) to do massive followup with the hotel.

If nothing else, ask there and someone will answer. Just don't talk about The War.

Thanks! And I don't have any intention of asking about the War. :)

Though I'm surprised there was one. Aren't people used to the annoyance of this process by now? Though it's good some years and a major eff-up others. Some of my friends who used to go to this con gave up because they got fed up with wondering if they had a room or not.

Yeah, that was the gist of it, though, people saying there needs to be a better way, and G&L flatly refusing that change needs to happen or can happen. *shrugs* Their con, their way. They are trying to sell door passes or single day memberships this year, though, so that's progress!

I approve of the single day/door passes!

I'm also surprised there needs to be a room lottery anymore. From what I've seen the past four years, the membership has gone way down. I'm surprised that the hotel can't handle everyone, but there must be more people there than I estimate.

How are they listed on Facebook? I tried searching, but didn't find a page for MediaWest.

Even though I never get to attend any more, I'd love to keep up with the convention. One of these days, I hope to attend again. I miss it a lot. :(

edit:
OOps! I found it. I was searching Media*West, not MediaWest*Con. So at least I feel somewhat connected to the con. :)
