The only really bad thing that needs improvement is the roomsharing/booking of rooms, the current system makes it super stressful and outright difficult to get a room with your friends, it would be so much easier and better if we could book an entire room ourselves and then sort out the roomsharing afterwards. Not everyone knows if they can attend six months before the convention. Its super frustrating having made plans to room with your friends and then having the plans shattered because they can't get a room slot, the issue would be entirely avoided.

As we want to maximize the amount of attendees that can attend NordicFuzzCon we have this system in place. Sure it isn't perfect but it works better than any other system I have seen so far. If you have a suggestion that involves being able to maximise the amount of attendees that can stay at the hotel meanwhile making the roomshare process easier, feel free to let us know!

On a note of booking whole rooms: This means some rooms might not be full, those new attendees (most often students) who have never attended a con before will not be able to afford to book a room as they would either A: have to find someone to share with, which might be really hard for a new fur or B: They might not be able to get a room because all rooms are booked, but not full.

This can lead to people also booking whole rooms to themselves, which isn't good if it's one of the bigger rooms!

This was just my thought on the matter - Maid Lord Lyrra

I do not really understand why its so terrible for furs that want a room for themselfes to be able to do so if they pay the full price? The income are the same.

With that said here is a suggestion:

The first person who book a room is stated as "roomowner" and get a certain amount of time to fill it up with people who have booked tickets and has payed for a hotel room slot.

If hen is not able to do fill all the slots the balance will be taken by those with a slot - Or left out on the website as "free room slots" for later booking.

Thus those who are able to get a hand of the roomowner status will have the first choice to pick his or hers roommates.

Or you can do as theatre do and have a floormap with the correct number of dots for the respictive room. When you wish to book a certain slot you click youreself to that spot and then select the one or ones you like as long as you can give the other peoples badge numbers. If you cant the slots are reopend for sale. Thus way those who are after a certain room or a certain roommate can try to book those, either alone or together. G.

I was thinking something similar, just fill out the empty slots with random people just as they do now but allow us to book a whole room. And this system hurts new furs and students just as much as they have to book instantly to get a room and some people wont know how their schedule looks half a year before the convention.
