I've submitted for our renewal.  And now we wait  ???

Please oh please convention gods let us know if we got it BEFORE general badge sales so I don't have to go through that stress.   :'(

It does say that you will hear in 8-10 weeks, with an early November deadline, so it seems to me that they want to get it done by the end of the year.

Yep, but it does say they COULD ask for information earlier. 

Seems like they are getting more strict this year.  Only 3 months back for articles.  No freelance options.  Etc.  I just found out that last year they asked a blog to reduce the number of reporters they were approved for, which I've never heard of happening before.  Ugghhh now I'm freaking out a bit.

Mine says "Due" yet this year was my first year approved as press. That's why I'm curious if it is still two years or not.

How much on track is this years timing compared with previous years? Just trying to gauge how likely it will be that pre-Reg will be back in November instead of delayed like it was last year.

Emailed CCI about my account saying DUE for press when this year was my first year, and I thought a press badge was for a two year period, yet I've not heard back from them yet.

Do they have a phone number? Or do I just have to send a follow up email?

In the verification materials of the Press Application for Digital Media, it asks for three bylined articles urls AND the Applicant Archive URL from the last 3 months. What do they mean by Applicant Archive? Is it the url for the website that shows all the articles you are the author?

As a reminder, the press application deadline is in two and a half weeks! I got mine in on the second day but if anyone was waiting for something, the deadline is quickly approaching.  Good luck to everyone with verification due (or applying for the first time) this year!

On that note, I wonder when the first people will start to be informed if they've been approved?  I feel like pre-reg won't be until November. Hopefully we'll know sometime after that.  I hope we hear before open reg at the very least so we don't have to go through that sale unnecessarily.

Good luck to everyone! I know it's nerve wracking to wait for an answer and in my experience, the Press Department at CCI isn't responsive at all to emails. I think they are always swamped.

I'd hope we hear before open reg as it said on the application 8-10 weeks.

Yes fingers crossed. But is that 8-10 weeks from when we turn in the application? Or 8-10 weeks from when applications close? If the former, I should hear mid to late November.  If the latter... mid to late January?  Please please please be the former.
