    Hello!

    I am also interested in sharing a twin room for Amecon as it will make it a LOT more viable. I don't snore but I am known to eat chocolate cornflake cake.

    Hmmm. I really need to looks at this accommodation lark. When does it open? Any single rooms?

    Excellent...

    Though, might be open to sharing too. But I certainly do snore.

    Want to Share with me then Elliot? We don't tend to bother each other too much after we've shared last few events.

    Looks like I'm not going after all as the accomodation site has taken a massive dump!
    Frankly given how much of a debacle this has been I have no faith in the event at this stage.

    Will more than likely end up bailing myself at this point. Any additional room allocation they're likely to wrangle will probably be the Arthur Vick etc Halls of Residency rooms, which I'm frankly getting far too old to deal with these days.

    What is it with Amecon and Kitacon's accomodation websites taking huge dumps when they go live, happens every year without fail.

    They bottled up demand, made people anxious about missing out, relied upon external partners who are not available when they go live, and had no real plan for when issues arose.

    I think that covers it?

    I have a lot of sympathy for them as accommodation takes a LOT of work to sort, but I feel like a lot of this issue is unforced and on them.

    Whoops, was in an hours long meeting when they came up and missed out again.

    Time to look at refunds, I guess.

    Warwicks twitter account implies they've burnt through their student accomadation, so seems unlikely.
