Member ID Migration Notice
Whaam! Ktang! BOOM!

Don't mind the noise—we're working on some big changes to our Comic-Con Member ID system. As we migrate to a shiny new platform, you will not be able to access or make changes to your Member ID account for a short period of time.

Have no fear! We'll be back up and running before it's time for any registration events. If you have any questions for us during this transition, please click here to contact us.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we complete this exciting upgrade. Please check back early next year!

I believe that they are moving to a new hosting platform, but I don't think that there will be any changes to the Member ID system itself...?

i have to think they're doing a revamp to the system, cleaning it up, etc, ie maybe redesigning the db structure (huge job, those guys get the big bucks). This should enable more usability of the system.

The just did something similar with the museum accounts.  They were moved to a new system.  The only thing we had to do was set the password on the new system.  Everything else was moved over.

Yeah, I suspect this is just 'under-the-hood' maintenance type stuff

I really hope they don't do away with the Hall H line. We're so looking forward to waiting in it.

Everyone in my group is on the yes please side of this.  And with yet another increase in covid cases I would imagine they will try and eliminate lines anywhere they can.

My group is on the absolutely not side of it.  We put in the work, do our line shifts, and all get into Hall H on Friday and Saturday.  Certainly don't want that to become random where some get in, some don't.  I just got back from Disneyworld and we had an absolute blast, lines didn't seem to be an issue for anyone.

My guess is they won't care about lines, it's not something they can control.  Even if it was a lotto people would line up to be close.

It make sense and why should the panel folks be allowed to work for it by lining up and not people who are at the Con for autographs and exclusives?

It's a very different comparison and there are different factors involved.  I don't think they can be compared that easily.

First, I’m staunchly anti panel lottery.  It basically means I won’t get into panels I want, and then I’ll probably stop going.

But second, they would have huge logistical issues if they started doing lotteries.   If a panel does lotteries, the room has to be emptied and reloaded (see NYCC this year). Think about how long it takes for them to load Hall H in the morning.  They would have to do that before *every* panel.  It won’t cut back on lines, because you’ll have a long line for each pa el, and it will require more time between panels, meaning fewer panels.

If I had to guess it would most likely only be a lottery for panels in the 3 biggest rooms, and then those would probably either the full day or half days.  So you are only loading unloading it once or twice.  I 100% get that people that stand in line for hours and hours dont want the change, and they are very vocal.  But I think it would open it up to a lot of new people who have never been in the big panels as they either can't commit that time or just don't know in advance and then day of it's too late.

Well here’s the other downside to panel lotteries — people will enter even if they’re not sure they’ll go.  And then they’ll win the lottery and not go (after all, you see this with some exclusives too).  So then you either allow standby (back to the big line) or you’re back to a lot of people who want to go but can’t get in while there are a bunch of empty seats.  Also, based on what happened at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, it creates a secondary market for panel access. 
Lotteries may sound good in theory, but they have unexpected side effects, usually completely unforeseen by the con company (at least if it’s ReedPop), and things turn into a cluster.

I have to say I was heartened to see this on the site with regard to CCI/SE

"Rooms will not be cleared between programs. You are permitted to stay in the same room for multiple programs (with certain exceptions; if a room is to be cleared, it will be announced)."

Per John Rogers, and I paraphrase, "the purpose of this policy was to alleviate crowding in the convention center".  If people were sitting in the rooms, they were not on either the exhibit floor or in the hallways of the convention center. A lottery introduces a whole new type of logistics.  NYCC system was not that great, and from what I observed, increased the lines.  Those that 'won' a lottery had to stand on a line outside the room to wait for it to be cleared, and there was no check to see if you were even eligible to be in the line.  There was a panel I wanted to attend for which I did NOT win a lottery.  I got on line early anyway.  Once it started moving, there were individuals checking badges using ipads.  I kept going.  I'm sure my badge didn't register that I was eligible, but they let me in anyway.  They didn't have a system to deal with those that weren't eligible, and I have a feeling they were a little overwhelmed at having to make the decision about who can get in and who can't.  Did I take someone else's seat?  I don't think so, as the room didn't completely fill up.  Probably the result of people that won the lottery, but chose not to show up.  If anything, I think NYCC's experience is why you should NOT do a lottery.

You can't make everyone happy.  If there's a panel in HALL-H that 7000 people want to get into, 1000 people are going to be disappointed.  It's supply and demand.

The plus side, for me, with SDCC's policy is the hidden gems I've discovered.  There are panels I never would have sat thru if it wasn't for this policy, and that would have been my loss.  I'll always remember my first hidden gem.  It was the 'Sponge Bob Square Pants' Panel (2015).  I only sat thru it because I was interested in the next panel.  It was a RIOT!!!

So I vote...NO PANEL LOTTERY!!!

Also, if people are in lines for one thing, then they aren't anywhere else. Having the Hall H line 'full' 24 hours a day means fewer people at offsites, on the Exhibit Floor, at other panels, etc. EVERYONE benefits from a full Hall H line.

Of course it will open up the opportunity to new people. But why should new people get the upper hand over people willing to stand in line for the panels?

At any rate I doubt there will be many 'big panels' for 2022.  There weren't many big ones for 2019, the 50th anniversary at that. I see a lot of studios waiting to see how the covid situation continues. Tv series panels most likely but which are even the big tv series panels going in to 2022 with Walking Dead and Game of Thrones done. The Witcher I suppose.
I don't think Disney will have much of a presence.

Marvel will be there if it can be done safely.  The past two times there’s been a D23 year and everyone says “Marvel won’t be at SDCC, they’ll be at D23,” they’ve done both.  And they have a lot of stuff to talk about.

With Black Adam coming out a week after SDCC, I can see WB returning — trot out The Rock for some last minute promotion.

It wouldn't give them an upper hand, it would put them on the same level.  I personally don't understand how some ones willingness to stand still for a long time makes them more deserving of something, but its the current way things are done so shrug.

I personally look forward to the Hall H line. I actually stock up on things all year in anticipation of standing in the Hall H line. It is an adventure and there's such camaraderie as we all "suffer" together. We meet great people that way. I would be bummed if there were no Hall H line. Lotteries for any other line is fine. I just don't want one for Hall H.

I agree with you. I've sat through some of the most interesting panels because of another panel I wanted to make sure I saw. I love the system. I vote no lottery!

I've always been of the opinion that those who want it most and put the most effort into it should be the ones that get into the panels.  That means standing in line.  Having said that, I do think that the line rules need to change.  It is so infuriating to stand in line for hours only to have a group of people cut in front of you because they are "with" the one person standing there.  If you are going to stand in line, then stand in line.  Do your time in person, not by proxy.

I would stop cheering on lotteries if you had to actually stand in line.  Like I get going to the bathroom or for food....but if you are leaving the line for hours at a time nah.  You just have a good social network which is an advantage t you over someone who may not interact as well with others.

At first, I was inclined to agree with you, but...

If we're talking Hall-H, if I remember correctly, those people who 'cut' do get wrist bands, and are entitled to the spot that is being held for them.  By that, I mean once the line starts moving, wrist bands are checked.  Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

So getting a bracelet at 7pm, disappearing for 12+ hours and jumping back in line with the one person that waited later makes them deserve to get in?

Yes, CCI has determined that people can choose who is in line for their group.  How they choose to balance that is the group's decision.  This helps people enjoy other parts of the con, get something to eat, go to the bathroom, sleep in an overpriced hotel bed.

IMO getting a wristband alone shouldn't entitle anyone to a spot.  Since someone can get a wristband and then leave for hours.  That's not standing in line.  If that's the sole barrier to entry, then I don't see how that's much different from a lottery.  Standing in line means standing in line.  There shouldn't be holds.  The wristband could be used to prove that.  Have wristband checks more often.  Miss a couple of checks, then you are disqualified.

And that's why I said I think the rules should change.  Since the current system doesn't reward the people willing to put in the most effort.  It's one thing to take a bathroom break or go get some food.  It's another to disappear for hours to do whatever.  That doesn't reward the people most willing to put in the time.  If that's not the case, then why not just have a lottery.  A lottery would be more fair than the current system.

So it's been so long since we've had a Con, that memory gets rusty.

People that wait on line for a wrist band "wait on line".  There's no getting a wrist band at 7 pm, as they don't give out wrist bands for the next day's panel, until late the night before. 

There are people that get on line for a wrist band on Thursday so that they can get into Hall-H for the (hopefully) big Marvel Saturday panel.  Then, I think, they have to wait until the next day until they give out the wrist bands for the Saturday panel, because they don't give out the wrist bands until Friday night, and it's later than 7 pm, and you have to be on the line to get the wrist band.  There's no getting a wrist band for your friends. So we're talking being on line a minimum of 12 hours just to get the wrist band, if you're goal is the Saturday panel.  Once they obtain their wrist bands, they then decide if they're going to stay on line over night, or leave the line.  If they leave the line, and they're not working with a group, they then have to get on the line to get into Hall-H the next day BEFORE 7:00 AM, in order for them to get into Hall-H for the first panel.  That's the gist of the system.  Anybody can do this.  The limit is the number of seats in Hall-H.  Those people that work with a group are probably more interested in getting seats in the front.  I did this once for a Friday panel working by myself. Got on line Thursday night, got my wrist band (late), left the line, slept in my over priced hotel room  :), got on line the next morning before the deadline, and got into the first panel, which is the only one I was interested in.

If I got anything wrong, let me know.

No one has to wait in line a minimum of 12 hours.  You could have one person wait in line till its time to hand out bracelets, then a group of 10 come jump in line with him right before they are handed out.  Once they are handed out they all leave again and then join in the morning when it's time to go in.  Oh yeah and there are literally companies where you can hire people to be the person sitting in the line for you.

Which is another reason why I don't like the current system.  Why can't I just walk up to the front of the line and pay the person there $200 to be part of their group?  Why couldn't I do that in every line and then I can have the pick of the panels depending on how I feel at the moment.

There is one more step, besides the wristband, they added the badge scan in 2018 or 2019.
And in 2019 they stopped letting you line up 2 nights in advance; the Saturday Hall H line started I think it was around 5am Friday.

I could sort of see this is possible, but that would require knowing what moment they get to you to give out the wrist band.  I guess you could text everyone in your  group, but you'd have to time it perfectly.

They messed us up in 2019. They told us they wouldn't let us line up until a certain time, but when we got there, it turns out people had been lined up for hours. Because there were so many people there, they let them line up. If we had known, we'd have come much sooner. I think if they say they won't let people line up, they shouldn't let people line up.

Its not that hard to do. Sdcc usually let's people know when they start handing out wristbands so the rest of the group just shows up like 15 minutes before that time.

They messed us up in 2019. They told us they wouldn't let us line up until a certain time, but when we got there, it turns out people had been lined up for hours. Because there were so many people there, they let them line up. If we had known, we'd have come much sooner. I think if they say they won't let people line up, they shouldn't let people line up.

In 2019 or 2018?  2019 I thought they were pretty strict about stuff.  And for Saturday, I was there when the guy came down with the flag Friday morning with an army of blinkeys, chose one random guy in a DC shirt to be the front of the line and then the rest of the line formed fairly orderly because the blinkeys only let one person through at a time.

I could sort of see this is possible, but that would require knowing what moment they get to you to give out the wrist band.  I guess you could text everyone in your  group, but you'd have to time it perfectly.

Unless they start popping out of the crowd raptor style, there's plenty of time to see them coming down the line.

Of course it will open up the opportunity to new people. But why should new people get the upper hand over people willing to stand in line for the panels?

At any rate I doubt there will be many 'big panels' for 2022.  There weren't many big ones for 2019, the 50th anniversary at that. I see a lot of studios waiting to see how the covid situation continues. Tv series panels most likely but which are even the big tv series panels going in to 2022 with Walking Dead and Game of Thrones done. The Witcher I suppose.
I don't think Disney will have much of a presence.

Besides the 50th panel, MCU had a Hall H Panel in 2019. I'd assume Marvel would be back for 2022 if we're in a better spot with covid. I'd assume 20th-century/Disney would be at SDCC as well for Avatar 2. On TV Side, I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon has a Hall H panel for the new Lord of the Rings show in September. Possible HBO Max with the new Game of Thrones show "House of Dragon", just depends on when that show is released. Lastly, Sony has Spider-man: Across the Spider-verse Part 1 coming in October (First one had a Hall H panel in 2018). Other than those, would be interesting to see who has a Hall H Panel (Netflix/WB/DC?/Paramount).

So getting a bracelet at 7pm, disappearing for 12+ hours and jumping back in line with the one person that waited later makes them deserve to get in?
What if said person waited in line from 7am-7pm, then their buddy took a turn from 7pm-7am?  I mean, waiting in a stupid long line is still waiting.  If others haven't figured out line groups or whatnot by now, that's their problem IMO.  I attend Hall H at least once a year, often on Saturdays, and sometimes Fridays & Saturdays.  I waited in line overnight exactly once, with many years asking the person in front or behind me to hold my place overnight so I could take my (at the time) youngish kid home; then I figured out the 'line buddy/group' thing and it makes for a MUCH more manageable SDCC experience.  Imagine being able to attend other panels the day before a Hall H or Ballroom 20 panel you also want to attend!  :P  Not only that, but I've met a lot of really great people over the years in the group who help each other out throughout the week (buying exclusives, giving head's up on stuff like "Gail Simone is about to do a signing in Artists' Alley"). 

Not to mention that fact that no one really wants 7k Hall H folks + 7k + 2700 folks + another 5-10k folks all waiting overnight on sidewalks: the lune group stuff minimizes this and makes most happy.

To be blunt, though, it's absolutely stupid nowadays for there to not be an 'overflow' area of Hall H and Ballroom 20 panels: complete with Q&A's and all footage.  I think recently only Marvel Studios in Hall H at least are the only ones who still keep their footage exclusive, while nearly everyone else releases their footage online either simultaneously or immediately after Hall H showing.

@perc2100 (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=380) Who knows? We might be getting that implemented this year. Having 10,000 people in a barely ventilated room doesn't seem like the smartest idea for the first year back. Maybe half of that, if not a quarter, gets in and another quarters goes into an overflow room. Then again it just might become that much more exclusive.

Honestly, this is the perfect time for them to make changes in line management and entry policies. People won't fuss (as much) if there's a pandemic reason to limit the lines and maybe implement an online lottery or whatever.

Disney has essentially done this.... instituted changes they have wanted for a long time, but knew would get pushback. They are using restarting and the pandemic as an excuse to do what they want at their parks.

I am very confused by what is not on this new Portal.  I purchased a Trade Professional badge in 2020, along with a Guest badge.  I never requested a refund and I thought badges were being forwarded to the next official year.  It also lists my Professional status as being "Due", meaning I need to re-apply.

I did send an inquiry to them, but can anyone explain what's going on?

Did they invalidate my 2020 badge without a refund?

Yeah, at the expense of maybe sounding like "that guy," it seems like "don't forget to check opt-in!" has been stated frequently around here.  Maybe not in the last couple years w/the pandemic shutdown/lack-of-Cons, but it seems like that sentiment has been expressed a lot.

So his log in was with a company email he is no longer employed at, he went to log in to the new site and you have to reset your password before you can log in which sends an email to your email on file.
So he has no way to log in since he no longer has access to that email?  Any thoughts?

That happened to my oldest kid (currently 20); I had setup their CCI system when they first 'aged-out' of free Child badges, and I no longer have access to that email either.  They emailed CCI and got a change of email and was able to work it all out for WonderCon badges.

Re: badge info for 2022 from 2020 showing up on the member ID system. Just since I haven't seen this information as to a timeline of when the badges will show up as being rolled over easily.

For some background, we were trying to reconfirm what days one of my friend's sister has for this year from 2020 because it was so long ago and I frankly didn't take great notes from my personal buying group for her badges. We knew she had at least a certain day, but couldn't figure out if anyone else in our larger buying group had also purchased a day for her. We managed to be generally confident after checking chatlogs for the group buying in 2019, but she had contacted customer service via form the other day and she heard back earlier today. They were able to confirm days for both of them and also gave her this information regarding the member ID system and the badge info.

Comic-Con is in the process of a system upgrade. Comic-Con 2020 badges rolled over to 2022 (not refunded) will appear by the end of April 2022.

I don't know where you're supposed to see it (I think there is a section if you go to the drop downs after logging in that should show existing badges,) but currently since the system isn't fully implemented yet, you can't see your existing badges anywhere, though you're meant to eventually. We were just told that it should be up by the end of April; however, they didn't indicate where to find it once it's live.

Edit: The banner would be a great idea! It'd be nice if they made it easy to figure out that it just isn't working at the moment/it's not completed when you're in. You can generally infer that it isn't fully ready yet, by some of the stuff not working, but an outright warning about that would be nice.

I don't know where you're supposed to see it (I think there is a section if you go to the drop downs after logging in that should show existing badges,) but currently since the system isn't fully implemented yet, you can't see your existing badges anywhere, though you're meant to eventually. We were just told that it should be up by the end of April; however, they didn't indicate where to find it once it's live.

Edit: The banner would be a great idea! It'd be nice if they made it easy to figure out that it just isn't working at the moment/it's not completed when you're in. You can generally infer that it isn't fully ready yet, by some of the stuff not working, but an outright warning about that would be nice.

OK...Sorry I misunderstood your original post.  I thought you were seeing your 2020 badges on the system.  So you actually made an inquiry of CCI, and they actually responded by saying we'll see everything after April 30.  That makes sense.  That's the deadline for refund requests.  I guess they don't want to post badges on our ID's until they know for sure who's requesting a refund.

Same, currently under the My Orders section, and not under Account Badges, where it made more sense *shrug*

I see a list of badge dates with my name, but the amount paid is listed as zero, 0.00. I resent my confirmation, which still says 0.00.  The confirmation email arrived within seconds....so that was nice.

No problem! I probably could have been clearer about that, I did bury the fact that my friend contacted customer service in the middle of the paragraph.

I just checked and I'm seeing my badges as well!!!  Quite frankly, I forgot that apparently I decided to go on preview night? It's a good thing I found that out today before I go ahead and request SDCC off (way later than normal but we had no idea when I was returning to work), though I usually try to get a couple days before and the Monday after off anyway.

Nothing in my account; I'm presuming 1) this is being 'fixed' in batches and/or 2) Pros will come after regular attendees

Either way, I'm not freaking out in April.
Yet  ???

My friend (a Pro) and I logged into our Member ID pages and don't see anything for Comic-con in July under My Orders (we purchased for 2020 and haven't canceled - still have our original confirmations) - the only thing listed was our badges for the November Event which is in the past.

Should we contact the Con folks or wait until the end of April?

Can't hurt to reach out now, then at least you got the ball rolling.

I suspect they're still working thru everyone, but it doesn't hurt to make an inquiry.

What Contact Email do I use?

What info should I provide? - The Badge Purchase Confirmation Number - Names, etc...

Should I attach the original email confirmation for the 2020  Comic-con that we purchased in the 2019 reg sessions?

My wife and I are in a similar situation; I don't see a need to be concerned at this time, and we'll wait another week or two (or after hearing other Pros have their badges and we're clearly in the minority)

Yes, all the adult Sunday badges say Friday.

What about the juniors who are now adults?

My Pro badge is now in my account, 4-day + PN: at the top instead of the bottom (in case you're thinking, as I would've, that it was chronological from when purchased)!
It said I paid $0 for the badge, which isn't true, but that doesn't matter to me and I can presume after 2+ years after purchase perhaps someone figured it wasn't _that_ important to double-check  :P

**NOTE FOR PROS**
My guest order is _not_ in my Member ID Portal as it was for WonderCon & SDCC SE; it is instead directly in my guest's Portal.  So if you don't see your Guest badge, before freaking out send a message to your Guest and ask if they have the badge in their Portal!

Also, less important, the dates for my Badge are July 21-24, not including PN date of July 20.  The type of Badges says 4-Day+PN, but just doesn't include Wed. date (same with my wife, also a Pro).  I suspect this is relatively common.  My Sunday buddy also has the right date/wrong day (Friday) while their kid's Junior badge has both the right date/right day for Sunday.

Whomever was in charge of data entry for the dates REALLY had either date or number issues  :P :P

Just received 3 separate emails from CCI, each verifying the same badge information.  My sister also just got 3 badge emails, each containing the same info of her badges.  Nice to get email verification though. ;D
