Quote from: ewu on January 14, 2016, 03:20:14 PMFanime staff have been monitoring these threads, but some of the posters are correct: no announcements have gone out regarding housing. No information in the public sphere is confirmed. We are working to make sure that the messaging is consistent but as you can see, there have been some hiccups. There are announcements in the works, so please stay tuned for those.

Quote from: YaoiCat on January 20, 2016, 12:50:14 PMAlthough, I wish they had announced this a month ago when registration went live ... if I'd have known that my ability to reserve a hotel room depended on when I registered, I would have registered right away.I'm also wondering if this new system means that rooms can potentially sell out before they even become available to people who registered later than others?
Quote from: pantsu on January 20, 2016, 02:54:04 PMAn additional HUGE issue is that we don't even have hotel prices yet. Frankly, I'd like to know those WAY before I buy my badge so I can get "priority" booking....but Fanime's forced my hand with this. Here's hoping the hotels haven't jumped up a massive amount of $ per night since last year.
Quote from: Amanojaku on January 21, 2016, 12:14:28 PMJust because a lot of people complain doesn't mean the complaint is valid. Most people also say they hate paying taxes. Human nature is to complain; it makes us feel better when things don't go how we want them to.I don't think one can fairly decide that this new system is worse until we've actually experienced the results. Every system has flaws, and I don't think anyone has denied it. Obviously hotel registration has been a hassle the last few years as the convention has grown; how about we try the wait and see how this works method out before we rant and rave? There will always be a lack of hotels, that is just a reality that will exist unless San Jose wants to build more hotels, or hotels offer more discounted room blocks for the con. There will always be people who can't get a room because they've all sold out. So, they have tried try to develop a system that more fairly decides who does or doesn't get a room. Is registration date more fair than who squeaked through the overloaded website first? Personally, I think it is.
