Ive had a few people ask about keeping the lan overnight to save money. If you are interested in coming and doing this for LanOC v6.0 I need you to post up here and let us know. If this is something that has kept you from coming in the past we really want to know (i know this has been the case for a few people).

I also had someone suggest that we charge 5 bucks to keep it open overnight. Im open to all suggestions :)

Im just confused if the staying open is for Gaming all night or for a place to crash.

Then i figure the 5 extra dollars to stay there wouldnt be a problem at all saves 40 bucks on a hotel room

I don't think this is a good idea. If you are hosting a two day event everyone is going to be tired after this first day because they didn't get much/if any sleep. The second day everyone will be tired, ready to go home, etc. I wouldn't trust leaving my rig setup overnight anymore either, as someone could easily sneak it out.

It worked fine last time we did it, it was just that nobody stayed the entire night.

I guess i pictured there being someone awake the whole time which would be why there would be a small extra charge to stay the night. I wouldn't be interested in doing this type of thing, but i just wanted to put my 2 cents into the concept. Depending on how many people were interested, you might even be able to hire a security guy that would stand post from 2am - 8 am, as i'm assuming most people will stay till 2 am friday and then would start showing up again after 8 that morning...

At Indysmash, hardly anyone left. The floor was covered with people sleeping. At least they had carpet though.

I know for a fact I wouldnt game all night. I would be up for it if we could crash there but that may make things a little inconvenient if people were laying all over the floor like mines.... maybe we could make a contest out of that. See who can hop around between all the sleeping bodies the longest without crushing someone lol.

I'm personally excited about this. If you don't want to stay all night then its no different than how it was before, you're not going to miss anything. But its a nice option for those out of town or those who don't get a chance to have marathon gaming sessions outside of lans. *hint hint*. As much as I'd like to say I'd stay up all hours of the night and all day the next day, I prob won't, but the option to crash for a bit there is great.

Most multiple day events I have been to run from Day 1 to Day 2 without closing. People are free to A. game the whole event (24 hours, 48 hours 72 hours) B. Go home or to a hotel and sleep during the night. or C. Save money on a hotel and just take naps at the event under your table. It would be nice to have this option as being 2 hours away my only options are drive back home or pay 100 dollars to LAN with most of the money going toward a hotel room for 8 hours. As for leaving your equitment their, Im told, like all LANS a staff memember will be required in the building the whole time (if they stay open they just find some staff willing to stay 8 extra hours at the LAN) for a short window like that. The easiest thing to do is you either take your computer home at 2am, or it stays till 10am. No computers leave the building between 2am and 10am. Thats a thought.

Garfi3ld, maybe you need to merge this topic witht he other one so that we have one place to post comments concerning the over night stay. You've already spelled out the No computers out between 2am - 10 am policy in the other thread.
And JPWinkis, i'm not sure what the "windows KEY L" is...

Wes said that the computer was going to stand up and walk away so I said WIn Key L to Lock this computer. Its the shortcut instead of CTRL + ALT + DEL and Lock Computer feature. Just password protectes it.

I definately support this idea. Its one of the main reasons why I can't go to 5.0 among other things.

Also I wouldn't mind at all to pay an extra 5 bucks to stay overnight. Obviously keep it Quiet gaming only + sleeping. No events or anything going on during those hours, that way once it gets to that time everyone has their own choice. Game all night still, crash on the floor, or go to their hotel room. I think this is the best option for sure.

I think it worked out very well. There were out of town ppl that slept on the floor and even though it wasnt very soft i still think this was and still is a great option that we should keep doing. I had no issues at all during the night except i was alone....no one to hold me....by myself....but in the end it was a great idea!
