Rules and Details

  • You must follow all LAN staff instructions.
  • Your monitor cannot be larger than 36 inches because of limited space. Please limit yourself to using only one monitor.
  • No sleeping in the LAN room. Some napping on your keyboard is tolerable, but please leave your sleeping bag in your hotel room.
  • Headphones required, no speakers allowed.
  • Please bring an CAT5e/CAT6 Ethernet cable that is at least 20 feet in length. You will be responsible for hooking up to our network, NOT US. We will have LIMITED STOCK of pre-packaged ethernet cables for sale for a non-ridiculous price in case you forget to bring one. Because we don’t have enough to go around we will no longer be providing free loaner cables.
  • Please bring a power strip for YOUR EQUIPMENT. MAGFest provides one strip for each group of four seats. You plug your power strip into this strip and only this strip. DO NOT DAISY-CHAIN MULTIPLE POWERSTRIPS.
  • Please do NOT plug in your own networking equipment such as switches and routers. It can cause problems. Trust us.
  • Please adhere to the guidelines that are in the program guide as well as the posted notices in the LAN room as far as conduct and network connections go.
