Yeah, I haven't been able to use My Show for the past couple of years and it's super annoying, especially since I've had a My Show account since like 2010 and suddenly now I can't have one because I'm press, which was never an issue before.

That's what I attempted to do and the email for the reset never came through. So I emailed the inquiry account and they informed me that Press Badges don't come with My Show Access.

Did you use the same email for a regular badge before you used it for your press badge?

Did anyone have press rooms in MSG last year? I have a press room there this year and I have no idea where the MSG press room is.

Also, I do not like that the press rooms are starting to be in the other buildings. I may have a press room directly before this one in the Javits, so I'm either going to have to leave one room early or arrive at one late.

I can create a new account, but it's just a hassle because it means I'll have THREE Fan Verified accounts with NYCC now and I really just want to be able to use MyShow on my main press account to help with scheduling purposes. Their site is hard enough to navigate without the added pain of not having MyShow access.

Did anyone get caught in the line across the street? Saw on reddit that pro/press badge holders were held across the street and not allowed to enter until 9:45, but I got there at 9am and walked right in with no issues.

They were disorganized, plus the metal detector was slowing things down dramatically.

I breezed through both days. No issues.

Same, for Thursday and Friday. I got there at 9 both days and had no real problems (though the backup at the metal detectors on Thursday was a pain). However, on Saturday, I got there earlier, and was told that they weren't letting press in until 9am. Then someone else told me 10. So I just went to the main entrance and went in.

I remember last year, in the letter that I got with my badge, they said that press wouldn't be allowed to enter early to access main stage panels, but this year they said nothing. If they weren't going to let press in until a certain time, they should make press aware of it. I don't mind using the main entrance, I mind that they didn't say anything about it.

The security folks at MSG were not helpful this year and they would not allow me to access the pit area where photographers would generally be allowed during panels.
