Details about me: I'm a 35-year old male who will be attending ALA for the third time. I've gone to the Anime Expo from 1993 to 2010 and 2012, and ALA 2011 to 2012, AM2 2011, and Fanime in 2011 to 2012 with other odd conventions here and there.

My simple philosophy about rooms is that if you go, you should only have to pay the money requested and show up. I'll take care of getting the rooms squared away. At AX 2005, the Hilton at Anaheim said they were overbooked and I had to take a set of smaller rooms. I managed to talk them into giving us a suite parlor to replace one of the rooms for no extra cost.

I've also led a suite full of otaku at AX 2006, and I still look at that as the most fun I've had for a convention. If I can get enough people together to do that again at another hotel, I would do it in a heartbeat.

I'm bringing my Xbox360 with me. I have several games including the latest WB Batman games, UMvC3, Halo Reach and Anniversary, and I have Rock Band 3 with over 600 available songs I plan on having both Halo 4 and the latest High Moon Studios Transformers games by then.

I'm called a fair and attentive leader, and I will be available for any questions.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What rooms do you have? Double-Bed rooms for Day 0 to Day 4. I like to get in to a convention before it starts and leave after it's done.

Are the rates per night or for the whole stay? It's for the whole stay.I do not have a per night rate.

When would payment be due? I ask that payment be sent about a month prior to the convention. This gives me time to turn payments into cash for the hotels, as well as weed out any last second drop-outs. Besides, it makes it easier to keep other people's money separate from mine until necessary.

How do you like payment? I prefer checks or money orders. If cash is sent in the mail and the postman loses it, it's lost for both you and me. Checks or money orders can be traced by the sender, or cancelled and retrieved, if necessary.

Do you accept Paypal? I avoid it unless I have no other choice. I ask that you send it as a gift to so the fees associated with it are handled on your end. Any other way, and they can take a serious chunk out of the hotel monies.

What do we do about food? I am also offering a $5.00 buy in which I use to pick up water, as well as bars of soap and shampoo/conditioner.

I'm a girl and I don't want to room with guys... Not a problem. I have one girls only room currently set up. Please PM or e-mail me about these rooms, and I'll give you the details.

I'm under 18... Can I still go? Sure. I'll take people as young as 14, but if you are between 14 and 17, I HAVE TO SPEAK TO YOUR PARENTS FIRST. This is non-negotiable. It sounds very over-bearing, but if you're a minor, you lie to your parent/guardian about where you are, and you're found with me and/or my friends, that's a potential kidnapping charge on the adult(s) you're found with, and that's a great way to ruin a convention.

What's the rule about drinking? I don't mind social drinking or fun drinking, but I don't condone getting fall-down drunk. Also, NO MINOR DRINKING, PERIOD. If you're an adult who gives a minor alcohol, we'll have a few unkind words, and I won't hesitate to involve the authorities.

Someone I'm rooming with is getting on my nerves... Bring anything like this to me. I'm a decent negotiator and I will handle all issues like this. Few things can make a weekend more tense than people irritating each other and drawing lines in the sand. Even if it doesn't get to fighting, you're giving the cold-shoulder to someone else, and everyone else in that room will get frustrated and caught up in it. That's not fair to everyone in that situation.

"Um... I broke something in the room." This should be a no-brainer, but be prepared to pay for it. I also inspect rooms quickly before I check them out. The reason for that is if these things are reserved with my credit card and something comes up broken, I have to pay for it. I limit my risks by being careful.

What happens if I break "the rules?" I escort you out. Not out of the hotel or the convention, but out of my room block. No refunds and no arguments. You're out.

Any other questions, please feel free to ask.

I'm interested and I might have three other friends interested as well. I won't be able to have the money until after Christmas if that won't be a problem. The most I could spend is $70.
