If you are a senior (I think CCI uses age 65?) *at the time of the badge sale* then you get the discounted price for a senior badge.
Something to look forward to  :P

It's an automatic transition. If your child is a junior *at the time of the badge sale* then they will pay the junior price. If your child is 18 or over *at the time of the badge sale* then they will pay the adult price. That's all. Eligibility for returning registration stays with the member ID, regardless of changing age categories.

So yes, if she gets a badge next weekend, it will be a junior badge, but if she gets one in open reg it will be an adult badge.

I believe the same happens when you become a senior. If you are a senior (I think CCI uses age 65?) *at the time of the badge sale* then you get the discounted price for a senior badge.

SDCC Registration and Badges / Junior transitioning to Adult badge
« Last post by Sublime on Today at 01:07:58 pm »
I've found a lot of information on the child badge transition to junior badge, but I've been unable to find anything on the Junior badge transition to Adult. I was specifically looking for a static date, such as the one for child to junior.

My daughter and I are both eligible for returning registration. She is still 17 now, so her online Member ID account shows her as still having a Junior membership. She will be 18 in November. If we are successful in the badge sale next weekend, would I be purchasing a Junior badge for her? Or will the badge sale automatically know that she will be an adult?
Has anyone had experience with this?

Christopher Lloyd and Tom Wilson from BTTF will be at ECCC!

We saw Tom Wilson at SVCC last spring and he is really entertaining. Well worth seeing! We saw Christopher Lloyd at the BTTF panel the year before. He's less 'entertaining' but it's still interesting to hear his stories.

Question about getting into the buying room after the waiting room.

Let's say both me and a friend are in the waiting room, and he gets in first. So he buys himself and me a badge. Since my badge has now been purchased, do I get kicked out of the waiting room? Or can I still get into the buying room and buy for 3 others?

You can still buy. However, when you get the the buying screen, it will ask you for a Member ID and last name. You MUST use the member ID and last name of someone who has NOT had a badge purchased for them (and for whom you would like to purchase a badge). If you try to use one that already has a badge (including yourself) you will get an error message. This is why it is very important to be in contact with your buying group throughout the sale, so that you will know who needs a badge still, and have their information available once you hit that buying screen.

Oh, good to know. For some reason, I mis-remembered you put in your ID to get into the waiting room, but if you only enter it after you get into the buying room, things make much more sense.

If I remember correctly, you don't put in your member ID to get into the waiting room.  You put in the Registration Code that Comic Con sends you 48 hours before the sale.  You don't use the member ID until you get into a buying session.  Someone else can verify if what I'm saying is correct.

I believe you stay in the waiting room and can also buy for someone else as long as you use one of the other 3 member id and last name if you get into a buying session.  Don't use your member id.  Those were the instructions I got from the buying group I am in.

This is going to be kind of a ranty post.  I apologize as I try to be generally upbeat and don't want to drag the forum down, but in my googling for SDCC 2018 chatter I found a website that has a ton of information wrong. I worry some poor newbie is going to be led astray by them as they're one of the top results for several key words for SDCC 2018.  I just... You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Again I apologize for the ranty nature of this post.  I don't want newbies to get wrong info.  I LOVE helping newbies and I'm sad to see the potential disappointment from following the advice of websites like this.

Breaking it down...

Quote
Rather than allow unused passes to sit untouched every year, we help connect fans with other fans to purchase Comic-Con badges on the secondary market. This allows fans who can’t attend one year to earn their money back, and new fans to attend this exciting event.

This is one of the few factual things in the article, but it's a major red flag.  They are clearly admitting to breaking the rules and selling tickets on the secondary market. 

Quote
Comic-Con expects around 200,000 attendees this year, which will be the largest crowd the event has ever seen.

It's actually 130,000 attendees, which they even quote at the BEGINNING of the article.  So they are right once, and wrong another time.  Even if they are accounting for people that just show up without badges, there's really no way to calculate that.  And I don't think it'd be an increase of 54%.  Where are they getting these 70,000 extra people?  I can see estimating maybe 140,000.  Maybe 150,000.  Extra workers for offsites, people without badges... sure.  Account for that. But that's a huge discrepancy.  Are they counting people that only have Saturday (or whatever) badges separately or something? If so, how even do they begin to calculate that?

Quote
Although Bucket List Events may not be able to make the lines disappear we can make sure you avoid the long waits and traffic that can take up much of the day.

No you can't.  You might be able to get someone a badge on a secondary market but when they get there, they'll be just like the rest of us.

Quote
Don’t forget that you need to reserve your seats at discussions, panels

No you DON'T.  You have to wait in line.  The wristbands aren't a "reservation," if that's what they are talking about.

Quote

That's New York Comic Con.

In summary:
  • This is against CCI rules
  • You can't avoid the lines no matter what this website promises you
  • New York Comic Con and SDCC are totally different
