Default 2013 SDCC

Girlfriend just got an email telling her only 2012 attendees can purchase badges for 2013 in august. Each member will be able to purshase three badges. Ill post the email later



Email here:
COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL 2013: ONLINE BADGE PREREGISTRATION

Comic-Con 2013 attendee badges will be available for purchase online through the EPIC registration website in August 2012. There will be no onsite preregistration at Comic-Con 2012 for Comic-Con 2013 badges. Only those that have purchased a Comic-Con 2012 4-day attendee or 1-day attendee badge will be eligible to participate in 2013 online preregistration.

Professionals, guests of professionals, exhibitors, exhibitor purchased attendee badges, volunteers, staff, and press will not be allowed to participate in online preregistration in August. Open online registration for all categories listed above will occur at a later date.

Those eligible for Comic-Con 2013 online preregistration will be able to purchase up to 3 badges total. You will need a unique Member ID for each badge purchased. Eligible 2012 attendees may purchase badges for other eligible 2012 attendees, but they will not be allowed to purchase badges for those who did not attend Comic-Con 2012 or for any of the ineligible categories above.

Eligible attendees will be notified after Comic-Con 2012, via e-mail, with the date, time, and link for online badge preregistration. The notification will be sent to the e-mail associated with your Member ID account.

Please be sure to "opt-in" to e-mail correspondence to receive the preregistration badge sales announcement. To check your Member ID notification “opt-outs,” login to your account at https://secure2.comic-con.org/memberid/ and select the option “Change my preferences/unsubscribe.”

Thank you very much for your support of Comic-Con, and stay tuned for additional 2013 preregistration details!

My wife and I received the above email notification and are very happy that will be eligible. Hopefully, in August, it will be a piece of cake to purchase tickets for 2013 SDCC.

So far, I'm pleased that I don't have to line up at SDCC 2012 for hours to secure 2013 passes.

My wife and I received the email last night. This is a load off. Hopefully, the registration process will be equally as smooth.

I have yet to receive mine.
Maybe I'll check my spam filter just in case.

I also received the email.

Plas is your email yahoo? For my member ID my email used to be yahoo and I wouldn't receive any sdcc update emails or I would receive them late. I switched it to my gmail email and so far I've been getting emails from them on time. Same situation with my sister.

Sounds like a good deal, but I dont think I could take not being able to walk wherever I wanted to go.

Yeah, I would prefer to be within walking distance as well.

I'm still concern about the registration process for the 2013 SDCC because I'm not sure how much of a priority I'll get. Meaning, when I"m able to register will I be able to have the option to purchase preview night 4 day passes or the lesser 4 day pass without preview night. I defiinitely would like to opportunity to purchase a 4 day pass with preview night.

That's why we get parking under the convention center. If we want to walk the gas lamp we can. I feel you DP if we get preview night we're good.

I'm wondering how this badge process is going to work. If you purchased a 4-day with Preview Night for 2012, does that automatically qualify you for the same next year? I can't wait to see how this unfolds.

So, I received an email noting when I'll be able to register.

I'm crossing my fingers that there is not a huge competition for registration or the site crashes.

Saturday as well. I think the email was sent to thousands of people. I'm still not sure how this is going to work, but it would seem it's a first come first serve.

It will be first come first serve:

Once you have reached the waiting room, you will be able to see your number in line and how many people are in front of you. Comic-Con badges sell out very quickly, and your preferred badge selection may not be available by the time you reach the front of the line.

^ Crap!!!

I'm worried about this. It might not be worth traveling to San Diego if I only get a Thursday or Sunday badge. I totally need to score a 4 day badge.

I hope it doesn't come down to that.

Good luck everyone.

I see this process as being no better than previous years. Initially, they made it sound as if anyone that had a 4-day pass for 2012 was practically guaranteed to get one for 2013. There are going to be thousands upon thousands of people trying to score 4-day badges. It might come down to the internet connection.

If my wife and I don't get 4-day passes, we won't be going next year.

Yeah, it appears that everyone that had a badge to the 2012 event will be eligible for preregistration for 2013. So that's potentially over 125,000 people logging trying to score tickets.

Additionally, I'm sure there will be a limited amount of badges available, as there will be a general ticket sales in the spring for everyone else.

I remember hearing stories you could be waiting for hours to purchase tickets too, depending where you are in line.

It's true. Hell, two years ago when I bought a pass for my wife online, I waited in the queue for nearly an hour. There were some people that waited for over 2 hours only to learn the days they wanted were sold out.

Ditto.

We should all stay in phone (text) contact to see where we are in line and how long the process is taking. I imagine we're all going to be waiting in a queue for a while anyway.
