We got some exciting things coming in the next couple of days so keep your eyes peeled for the forum and website changes/ announcements. You'll see some new things appear like our contests sections and announcements such as our first room blocks and registration. You can also follow us on our twitter account @animecentral.

-must inform other possible roommates of exciting changes- Especially if there are roomblocks opening already - it'll be the first time a good portion of us are reserving a room this year, so we really want to get one right away to make sure we're getting one.

I'm down. PM me when you get the room details.
Just in case, I'll still be reserving my own suite.

Well on the contest page that anyone can get to right now, they list a "Contest: Design the 2011 convention badge art" but the link does not work yet :clap:
I can't wait to read the details on this one.

No. they're not. I about had a heart attack when the guy started reading his script about the deposit. I thought "damn, there goes reserving a room, because I certainly didn't have the price of the room extra in my account. (it's rent time, after all). As he read down the page he goes 'wait a minute' ... the deposit isn't taken until April 27. so if you reserve a room, and don't cancel before then -- they charge your card a minimum of one night *on the 27th* of April.

I know because I made my reservation yesterday. (I have 6 months to pay it off. I fully intend on it being paid in advance before ACen)
I don't care if you ARE the chosen one, this adventure requires PANTS.
