More seats added to the seating plan!

Postby xconspirisist » Fri Oct 04, 2013 8:55 am

Gentlemen, Gentleladies and Gentlethings, we're happy to announce that we've added 8 more seats to the seating plan!

Go there now to check you still have the seat you want and to perhaps shuffle around. If we keep getting signups then I'll code the feature so that you can sit on peoples lap ;)

Can you make seat 36 unavailable? As me and Alien are sitting next to each other and we both have dual monitors :)

If you want to occupy another seat, you could always pay for it, I'm sure the staff wouldn't mind that option. Alternatively, you could add a "reserved until all the other seats fill" option, but that would require staff intervention with manual tweaking to the attendance/seating or website coding.

This debate is nothing new though, it usually boils down to that it's a damn lan party, not your command and control centre. I can't see a problem if the event isn't full, but once it does start filling then you've got to ask what's it worth to you, and if you really like your multimonitor set up so much, then pay for the seat before another punter does.

It has been done at every single other event until now so I don't see it being a problem :?

agree with freelance

if your screens are going to take an extra space, and the event is fully booked, well, leave a monitor at home.... don't demand, request, and base it on the amount of space free once everyone is there! however don't expect that you will be allowed it!

if there are 64 people at the LAN, then space is going to be tight, and unless you can convince the person next to you to use 1/3 of a desk, then don't setup 2 monitors, or bring 2 smaller monitors!

alternatively pay for a full space if it cuts out a space if you want them to loose a space for a paying "punter"

Goose, shut the fuck up, I am not trying to deprive anyone of a seat. There are 50 seats and only 32 people paid, even the signups are at 47 and I know at least 1 of those is not coming. If we end up with 50 people going then it's not a problem I will only take one monitor, but since that's extremely unlikely I was simply asking that the seat next to mine be one of the ones left free.

Jani, would you mind sitting on the end of a row? If so, we can put out a small extra table for you which would make our lives a little easier than moving people in the middle of a row.

Only problem with that is attaching it to the crappy desks the hall has is not going to be a fun task, probs make the desk fall on its ass haha.
