if I got this right the current groups are just for returning registration right?. I did not make it for this year but filled out the form(I think I'm quiet useless in a buying group then?..although in the form I were asked if I've ever been to SDCC before. ((2018 would be my first time. so I'm a new attendee) :-(

pre-reg is only open to folks who've been to sdcc last year.
we are working on getting some type of buying groups available for folks who are only able to do gen-reg.

Yes, right now we are just looking for people to participate in returning registration, for people who attended on a paid badge last year. That's because this sale will happen first.

If we can (based on any help we receive) we will open up buying groups again for open registration in the spring.

OK good!  I was afraid that there may not be groups for those of us trying for the first time

We do not know if we will be able to help new folks. as You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login said it depends on if the folks who've been doing the buying groups are are able to find & train enough organizers.

Agreed. We have about 1,000 people in buying groups,and our tech capabilities are pretty much at their limit. We are asking for help from those in our community who have programming experience, can build apps, or have knowledge of Google docs. IF we are able to expand our capacity, then we will definitely open up groups for open registration next year. But right now that is up in the air.

If anyone has tech skills and would like to assist, please PM Alyssa.

How long before we get a reply to registering for the buying groups?  Just making sure I haven't lost the email :)

You should have received a response already, Rocki.

Hmmm... I'm not seeing your signup. That may be the problem. Please try signing up again.

Be be patient.   Remember that filling out the form does not guarantee you will be in a buying group.   It lets the leaders know that you would like to be in a buying group.  Then they have to determine if they have room.  If it is determined there is room a group leader will contact you.

There are still places available in the buying groups. I believe everyone who has already signed up has been contacted by a buying group leader to join.

I was in SoCalNerdGals group last year, but neither my wife nor I have heard from her this year.  Is she still running a group?
