I don't think we can say that yet.  It says once capped.   They may have a time that winners have to be in line by if they are not then others may be allowed in.   I think this is going to be a little more learn as we go.   I expect lots on mistakes the first year!

I hope so! The website says for both lottery winners and the non-lottery people need to be in line by 35 minutes before the panels -  I'm hoping there will be a standby line to fill in for no shows.

That would be a good idea and I bet they'll use it. You win the lottery but have to be there to check in within 30 minutes of the panel. So for all the no shows you pull from the stand by line after the 50%. That makes good sense and I can see that being pretty effective.

BTW, NCDS I love the old school 2 spaces after the period.  ;) ;D

I got told the other day that a period after a one sentence text means your mad.   I knew I was official old at that moment.  Silly me I thought it meant I could complete a sentence.

They have the person with the ticker at the back of the queue where you line up to tap the badge, not when you line up to go to the actual panel. So yes, there are likely to be a lot of empty seats. But I'm sure in the past that people have lined up for wristbands and then later decided not to do the panels.

Faqs updated

"No worries if you haven't received your badge in the mail yet or if you placed an International order and need to pick it up at Will Call. You can still enter the lottery - just be sure to activate your badge as soon as you get it (whether in the mail or at Will Call onsite)."

"Does my NYCC Badge need to be activated in order to participate ?

You do not need to activate your badge to enter the lottery, but you DO need to activate your badge to participate in the lottery. Basically what that means is entering the lottery is simply you entering your Fan Verification email and checking off which lotteries you'd like to be entered into. If you win, we'll be tying your winning lotteries to your badge and you'll tap your badge at the Main Stage panel, exhibitor booth, or private autographing session to be let in. That's why it's super important for you to activate your badge once you receive it (whether in the mail or at Will Call). Once it's activated to your Fan Verification account, your winning lotteries will sync automatically. Make sure to activate your badge now if you have your badge and haven't yet."

Funko's post on the pre-lottery for their booth

"NYCC 2017 Booth Procedures!

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

In order to streamline the process and fairly determine who will be eligible to enter the Funko booth, we are once again using an online lottery system for the opportunity to get into the Funko booth and snag some exclusives!

Participation in this process is required in order to have a chance to visit the Funko booth at NYCC!

Winners will be notified by Friday, September 28 at 2:00pm PT. You will have to confirm your participation if you are selected, so keep an eye on your email!!

Rules:

This random drawing is for a chance to get a ticket to purchase items at the Funko booth.
   
  • In order to ensure that only real NYCC attendees are entering the pre-show lottery, only fans with Fan Verified email addresses will be able to enter.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Your entire entry will be disqualified if you try to enter lotteries for a day you don't have a NYCC badge.
  • In order to get as many different people through our booth as possible, fans will only be able to win one trip to the Funko booth throughout the entire show.
  • Winning a ticket does not guarantee you any specific item at the Funko booth. Items may sell out by the time you reach the front of the line.
  • Tickets are awarded for a specific date and time and must be redeemed for that specific session only. No exceptions.
  • If you are selected, your ticket will be loaded onto your badge! You will just have to tap your badge at the booth entrance to redeem your spot at the time of your session.
  • There will be a strict limit of one of each available item per ticket.
  • You will not be able to line up at the Funko booth before your session begins.
  • Every person in line will require a ticket. No exceptions.
  • ADA attendees must also go through the same process as noted above.
  • Please read NYCC's FAQ for more information. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login


    The lottery will be open from Thursday, September 14th at 11:00am PT until Monday, September 25th at 2:00pm PT at this link. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

    Good luck!

So having it loaded on your badge is different --it means we can't transfer to someone else through showclix like we did last year.

It does, I am sure this is in response to the SWCO lotteries which were a joke because people entered with multiple addresses and people not going entered.

If you're able to edit the fan-verified email address after you win an exhibitor exclusive lottery, maybe you can "transfer" only during the 48 hrs confirmation phase??

"When do I find out if I'm a winner?

Winners will be notified by Friday, September 28 at 5:00 PM/ET.

What happens if I selected as a winner?

You will be emailed a unique link that allows you to confirm your participation and assign your friends fan verified email addresses to each reservation. Be sure to collect your friends fan verified emails because if your friends are not fan verified, or you enter an incorrect email address, you will not be able to add them to the reservation.

You will only have 48 hours after receiving your email to confirm your participation in each event. If you do not complete this process, you will forfeit your ticket and we'll offer your tickets to other fans. After you confirm your participation, everyone included on your reservation will receive an email and the winnings will be coded into their individual badges."

Has anyone attending as press done this yet? We don't do fan verification, and it sounds to me like that's going to be an issue.

FYI someone on reddit who is going as press said they were able to enter, so it looks like everything is okay. Phew.
