Yooo! Let's get this thread started!

Still in the Hyatt, hopefully this time with 100% fewer terrorist attacks!

Sweet! I hope to see you there! I plan on attending with Siiaas, a member here who hasn't stuck his tail on the boards in a while, but we're good friends :)

Hey, so I'm actually looking for a roommate for MFF. I recently got my first fursuit, and I'd like to try it out at the con. But so far, I haven't been able to find someone to room with, and I can't afford to pay for a hotel room by myself.

If someone has space in their room, please message me on here, or email me at Shaloxeroligon@live.com. Alternatively, if anyone is also still looking for a room, I can book one and we can split it.

I'm going with another fur. I dunno what kind of room he's booking, but I'll mention it to him.

...So... I managed to get a reasonable level of funds for MFF over November by donating plasma, and I also managed to find a local fur who was willing to squeeze me into his room on short notice (and into his travel arrangements as well).  I wasn't entirely sure if I was going to be able to make it this year, but it looks like I am!

(*vehemently denies being a procrastinator, as per his annual tradition, and as per his annual tradition, fails in his endeavor to be convincing*)

It seems like there are fewer Furtopian furs going to MFF this year as compared to prior years, but we can still do a Furtopian meetup.  Is there any particular time that you guys would prefer?

Any updates on the idea for a Furtopian meetup at MFF this year?  I'm at Midwest Furfest right now, so if anyone has a good idea for a set day and time to have a gathering I'm all ears.

Yoshi says Shim is here, but I haven't seen him yet. Redyoshi's comp. Can't get online, and Siiwolf can't seem to log on to the forums. I would love to meet up (and so would they), but I don't know everyone's schedules off the top of my head.

I do have a browser on my phone, but it's... not ideal (it's the Polaris browser of the enV Touch; yes, my phone is that old).  Web browsing on my phone kills the battery much faster than other uses, butI have my phone charging overnight (so its battery will hopefully live through some periodic web browsing).

I'm greatly interested in playing more Lupus tomorrow, and if I manage to get up in time for it (somehow), I'll try to be in the fursuit parade.  Aside from that, I don't have a preference for time.

(Also, Shim did post in this thread; he's the OP.)

Haven't seen him at thw con. Or maybe I have and didn't know it was him. I've just been glancing at badges and looking for a suit or art like his prof. Pic. Not really accurate

Wasn't able to make it this year - maybe next - wasn't able to budget it around all the RL stuff/moving/etc
Last year was fun, despite getting very sick after.
